  • domestic to int'l flights and checked bags

    Flying out of Kansas City on United. Connecting to Air China flight in Houston. Will I need to claim bags and have them re-screened and re-checked onto the international flight? What about the return trip? Do I claim bags in Houston and go through customs and then board the domestic flight to Kansas City?

     

    On your way to China you only need to go from your arrival gate in the B or C concourse to your departure gate in the D concourse on the Terminalink train. On your way back, in Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the TerminaLink train or walk to your departure gate.

    Hi: I m travelling from Mobile to Dallas. I have a transit at IAH airport. My first flight will land in Terminal B at IAH. The next connecting flight is at terminal C. The transit time is only 50 mins. What is the best way to go to terminal B to C in 30/40 mins? How long usually it takes? Thanks. Jahir

     

    The TerminaLink train connects Terminal B and C inside security in less than 5 minutes.

    I'm flying from Quito Ecuador to calgary, with a connection through Houston with United. I was supposed to have a 1 hour 40 min layover but because of a delayed flight I will be lucky to have an hour. I will need to get my bags and go through US customs in Houston. I have Nexus. Will I make my connection?

     

    Since you have an International to International connection you should not have to claim your bags. You have a chance of making it. If not they have other ways of getting you to Calgary.

    flight is from houston to guatemala city. i have 50 min when i land in houston. Does this give me enough time to catch my plane to Guatemala. United Airlines

     

    As long as your first flight is domestic and on-time then, yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Baggage Claim and Terminal D Check-in

    Is baggage claim inside the secured area so you don't have to exit the secured area to change terminals? At Terminal D to you have to exit the secured area to check-in with our airline?

     

    No baggage claims are in the secure area. ALL international arrivals must go through security after clearing customs if connecting to another flight.

    Is baggage claim located in the secure area so you can transfer between terminals without leaving the secured area? Once at Terminal D do you have to leave the secured area to check-in with your airline?

     

    No baggage claims are in the secure area. ALL international arrivals must go through security after clearing customs if connecting to another flight.

     

  • STL to Houston to Buenos Aires... Is 45 minute layover long enough?

    I am freaking out about if I will have enough time to catch the intercontinental flight or if i should book an earlier one with a 5 hour layover instead. Is it enough time?

     

    It is enough time if your first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. However, it leaves very little time to spare in case of delays.

    I was told that I would have to re check luggage at Houston even though both bought at same time and are on same ticket and both airlines are partners. What is correct answer and how difficult is it if required to recheck

     

    That is incorrect, on your way to Istanbul your bags will be tagged through to IST and you will not have to claim them in Houston.

    Hi, Is 45 minutes enough time to connect from C to B terminal? I am flying in from Newark and connecting to Leon, Mexico with 45 minutes between flights. Thanks.

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    I have a flight from McAllen to Houston and from Houston to Frankfurt (GER). Between MFEIAH and IAHFRA I have only 1h10min. Is this enough time to check in (I have business ticket)

     

    You will be checked in for both flights if they were purchased together, in McAllen. All you should have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    Do you know if a Colombian citizen without a USA visa can connect through Houston between Bogota and Calgary?

     

    No, you will have to acquire a United States Transit Visa.

     

    Thank you!

    Just booked a flight where I have to get from terminal A to terminal E in 52 minutes . Arriving from Toronto at 11:07pm and departing at 11:59pm. Am I going to make it? or do I have to reschedule? Will I also have to go through customs?

     

    You will go through US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You just have to take the TerminaLink train from A to E. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I'm arriving from Frankfurt on Lufthansa LH7601 operated for United Airlines at 17:55 and departing for Guatemala on United UA1502 at 19:10h. Only 1 hour and 15 minutes. Will I have enough time to to reclaim my bags, check in and make it to the gate?

     

    You will not have to claim and re-check your bags since you are on an International to International connection, but you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs and Security. You will have barely enough time if your flight from Frankfurt is on-time.

    I'm flying from Mexico (SJD) to Toronto (YYZ) with an 1hr 15min layover in Houston (IAH). Is this enough time? Both flights are with United Airlines - will the gates be in the same terminal?

     

    That is 15 minutes shorter than the recommended time as you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs and Security and possibly change terminals (Toronto flights can leave from B, C, or E). You will arrive in E. It's possible, but it leaves no time to spare if there are any delays.
