    I am flying into Houston from McAllen. I understand that this means I will arrive at terminal A or B. As I am flying to Toronto Canada, I do not need to pick up luggage, but can proceed to Terminal A where I will depart on Air Canada flight.

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to claim your bags and can go directly to your departure gate.

    YYZ to IAH SkyWest flight UA6347U. 66 minutes connect UA1491U to PVR. Enough time? Terminals of Arrival and Departure?

     

    Yes. You will preclear US immigration and customs in Toronto. You will arrive in terminal B or C and depart from E. The skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I will have a 59 minutes window to pick up suitcase, and proceed to Terminal A to Toronto, Canada. I am arriving from McAllen, Texas. Does this allow enough time to make the flight? W Does the McAllen flight arrive at Terminal E?

     

    Your McAllen flight will depart from Terminal A or B. If you purchased all your tickets on the same reservation then you will not have to claim your bag in Houston - you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Sorry, McAllen flight will arrive in A or B.

    United Airlines website is showing a 59 minute layover when connecting to second part of flight to ZIH Is this sufficient time to make the flight to ZIH ???

     

    Yes, that is possible. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyWay train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

     

    Will I be switching Terminals at IAH or be departing from the same one ? Flight numbers are .... UA3773 to UA1682

     

    You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal E.

     

    Thank you very much for all your help and information Cheers from Toronto

     

    I am flying from LGA to Austin via IAH on United and I have a 71 minute connection. Is this enough? The flight from LGA usually arrives 20 minutes late. Will that be a problem?

    I'm arriving at terminal E and departing from terminal E. Layover is only 40 minutes. Enough time? skyway quickest?

     

    OOOOOPS! arriving B - departing E 40 minutes enough?

     

    40 minutes is possible, but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the first flight is late. Yes, the only way is the Skyway.

    This is a repeat of other questions, but thought the answer could vary depending on the destination. I have a United flight BWI to IAH connecting IAH to EZE on one ticket. Our connecting time has changed and now we only have one hour and four minutes. There is no other non-stop out of BWI. Will I need to change terminals? Is this going to be "by the skin of our teeth" I am flying on miles and getting another flight will be impossible. Thanks

     

    You may need to change terminals but all gates at IAH are connected inside security. You will comfortably have enough time if your flight from BWI is on-time. Actually you can change an award ticket for free as long as there is still availability in the same buckets you reserved the ticket in (Saver or Standard).

    I am flying in from Auckland, with a 2 hr connection to Panama - will I make this connection? Do I need to immigrate, collect bags & re-check? Thanks

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You will have to check about the bags. IAH does have a program where you don't have to claim your bags if you are on an international to international connection, but that may only be in place if both flights are on United. You should have just about enough time.

    Flying BNA - IAH - CUN with a 54 minute layover in IAH - both flights with United. Do I have to change terminals and will I have to rush to connect to the second flight - assuming first flight on time

     

    That is enough time. You probably will have to change terminals as you will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. The Terminalink/Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I am arriving from Guatemala City at 3:59 pm and leaving for Denver at 5:48 pm on Wednesday, January 6. I have to change terminals and go thru customs. Is this enough time?

     

    That should be just about enough time if everything goes smoothly. If your flight from Guatemala is delayed United flies almost hourly flights from Houston to Denver that you can be rebooked on.

    Hello, we have a 100min connection time arriving from San Jose and departing to Frankfurt, both in Terminal E and with UNITED AIRLINES. Can you tell me if it is time enough ? Thank you very much.

     

    That should be just about enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security in Houston.

    We arrive in Houston from San Jose at 5:42 am and depart to Calgary ab at 7 am both united airlines. We have checked baggage. Arriving at terminal e and departing terminal a. Do we have time? Thanks in advance.

     

    Arriving that early in the morning it should be possible even though the minimum international to international connection time in Houston is 90 minutes. Once you go through security you will take the Skyway/TerminaLink train to Terminal A where you will depart.

     

    so we don't get our bags and clear customs? thank you!

     

    United has International to International bags in Houston where you don't have to claim your bags to go through customs if you are connecting to an International flight. However, since your second flight is on Air Canada (if it departs Terminal A it's on Air Canada) you may want to ask the agents in Houston.

    Am arriving from auckland into houson and then traveling on to indiana. Is 80minutes enough time to clear customs with a hand carrybag and change terminals

     

    It's possible but difficult. It wouldn't be possible with checked baggage.

    We have a 3 hr layover for a flight to NZ after arriving. (United flight) Will we have ample time to collect our luggage, check in at ANZ and go through security and make our flight? We can't check through from departure city.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. It's usually faster to walk from T7 to the International Terminal vs. taking the shuttle.

    My family will fly from DCA (Washington National) to LIR (Liberia, Costa Rica) via Houston. United is allowing us to book a flight with a 40 min connection. Is that enough time? Do we check in for an international flight in DCA? Thank you!

     

    You will receive both boarding passes and your bags will be checked through to LIR at DCA. All you have to do in Houston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but it doesn't leave much time to spare for any delays.
