    Flight UA398 arriving 12:00 PM depart 12:45 to Charlotte on flight UA5239. Will we have enough time to make connection?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on time that should be enough time, but you will have to take the TerminaLink train from Terminal C to Terminal A or B.

     

  • 45 minut layover with kids

    I know this has been address but I just want extra assurance. :) Is a 45 minute layover doable? It'll be me, my husband, two kids, and a car seat. We're coming in from Pittsburgh (PIT) and going to Orange County (SNA). Also, how can I find out which terminal I will be flying into and out of? Thanks.

     

    Forgot to add: we will be flying United for both flights.

     

    Yes, it's doable. If your PIT-IAH flight is on United it will arrive in terminal C or E. if it's on United Express it will arrive in B. Your SNA flight will probably depart from C. If you arrive into B you can take the TerminaLink train between terminals, otherwise you can walk between gates in C or between C and E.

    I have a long time between flights at IAH. I get in at midnight and the next flight isn't until 7am. are ther sleeping booths available at this airport and where are they located

     

    No, "sleeping booths" are just coming to America.

     

    You could opt for the massage chairs near gate C43 - if sitting on floor there you get WiFi connection from nearby VIP lounge. Alternatively, open http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i10702-k5639170-Long_layover_in_Houston_IAH_Hotel_or_sleep_in_airport-Air_Travel.html for hotel accommodation suggestions by Air Travel Forum.

    We have a flight that arrives at IAH at 9:33 am (United) and leaves at 10:16 am for Roatan, Honduras. Is that enough time?

     

    That's very tight, but doable. Your Roatan flight will likely depart from Terminal E. If you arrive into Terminal A or B, take the TerminaLink train between terminals.

     

    Thank you for your response

    I am flying from Indianapolis to Houston, TX then to Vancouver with United airline. I will leave Indy at 6:30am, arrive in Houston at 8:03am, I have one hour to connect to the flight to Vancouver. Will I have enough time? Do I need to go thru custom in IAH? What is the best way to do? I will be 33 weeks pregnant and taking my 6-year-old son.

     

    Yes, you have enough time. You do not go through customs at IAH, you will go through Canadian immigration in Vancouver. Your flight from IND will likely arrive in Terminal B (although it could arrive in A) and your YVR flight will likely depart from Terminal C. You just have to take the TerminaLink one station if you arrive in B and 2 stations if you arrive in A.

     

  • 40 mins Connection Terminal A to C

    I have two small children and I'm connecting between Terminals A and C with a 40 min connection. Should I be concerned??

     

    I should mention...I'm coming in from Tulsa and ddeparting to Orlando

     

    On arrival at IAH, Terminal A, look for signs for the above-ground TerminaLink train which runs continuously between the terminals inside security. On arrival at TC, the TerminaLink train station and splits shortly thereafter into the gateway to gates C24 to C27, to the right, gateway to gates C14 to C23 in the center, and C2 to C14 to the left. You make it easily within 40 mins.

     

  • booking question - time btwn flights
    Mar 15, 2013

    I am connecting to an international flight out of IAH that departs at 7:50PM. I have a few choices to select from for the first flight into IAH, arrival times as follows 1:00PM, 2:00PM or 5:00PM. I would like to avoid a long layover, but want to have enough time, which arrival time would you suggest booking in order to allow enough time to claim luggage and go to customs to board my flight at 7:50PM

     

    Unless your first flight is also international, you will not have to claim luggage or go through customs in IAH. Even if your first flight IS international, the 5 PM arrival should be fine.

    I will arrive at IAH from Istanbul on TURKISH AIR at 6PM, my connecting flight to San Diego on UAL is at 9PM. Will this allow enough time to collect baggage and clear customs, how long does this process usually take?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. It should take anywhere between an hour and 1.5 hours to go through immigration, recheck baggage, and go back through security.

     

  • Canada/IAH/GCM connect PING -> ZAP

    Zap, you seem to be quite knowledgeable so I'm hoping you can help me out. Looking through the forums, I think I've seen possible answers, but I wanted to pick your brain for my specific situation. Flying YVR - GCM via IAH with United. Arriving Term E, departing Term C. 37 minutes connection time. I'm certain this is a standard United flight that occurs every day, but this seems to be a VERY tight connection. Surely they don't expect us to get our bags, recheck them, and then go through Customs again in Houston do they? I'm hoping that since we clear US Customs in Vancouver that we will just have to get off plane in IAH, and proceed to the next gate to board the flight to GCM. Is this the case? Or will we have to wait for our bags, etc. Thanks in advance!

     

    Yes, if you preclear in YVR you don't have to go through immigration in IAH. It will be handled just like any domestic flight and could arrive into C or E (for example today's YVR-IAH flight arrived at C-35). Also since that flight leaves so early it is less likely to be delayed. Today it left 1 minute late and arrived 23 minutes early.

     

  • Walking time between E and D
    Mar 12, 2013

    I will be flying United express UA5201 arriving at terminal B I will be leaving out of terminal E to Frankfurt on Lufthansa flight LH441. I have a 4.5 hour layover and wondering if its feasible to walk between D and E since there is more food and shopping at E.

     

    I suppose you could walk From TB to TE, however, it's easier to take the above-ground TerminaLink train, connecting TB with TC, & TD/TE inside security. As you get off the train at TD/TE, you find the ticketing area to the right; if you arrive by car or taxi at either of the two entrance doors, you see the ticket counters in front of you. This area also has an escalator to Level 1, International Arrivals, which has in the lobby a passenger greeting area. Once you get through security check on either side, you can proceed to the gate area.

     

    I was going to take the terminal link between B and D but when i actually get to D there isnt many things to do so is the walk between D and E feasible or should i just suck it up and stay at D

     

  • Connection time for flight from Edmonton

    I am flying from Edmonton into Houston Terminal E and then onto Miami. All with United. The flight gets into Houston at 5:15 AM and the next leaves for Miami at 7:06 from terminal C I think. I know that US customs will be closed in Edmonton at that time of night so we will have to clear in Houston. Will that be enough time to clear customs and do we have to go through security again?

     

    The YEG-IAH redeye arrives into terminal E to clear customs. You have plenty of time, it should be pretty empty at that time (only other international flights that early are a few from South America).

     

    And yes, any time you go through US immigration you have to go through security again.

     

    Thanks! We will also have to pick up our luggage before going to customs, correct?

     

    Yep!

    I will travel with United on 16-Mar from Bogota to IAH and then SFO.(UA 1008 & 1257). Our layover is 1hr 10 min. Can we make the connection? As I travel with kid and need collect baggage ,go through customs. What terminal will the 2 flights be? thanks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E. You will depart from Terminal C or E. 1 hour 10 mins is possible if there are no delays. If you miss your connection to SFO there are several later flights that you will be able to be re-booked on.

    Not bad for airport food. Filling. Plenty of chicken. Extra ranch. The lettuce was a little tired.

    Terrible rip-off store. Do not shop there. I made the mistake and the merchandise broke right away. The store refused to help me. I had the product there and they saw the damage, and refused to replace with an identical item right there on their shelf. They had my $300 bucks so didn't lift a finger to help. Save your self a lot of money and shop somewhere that cares.

     

    Try contacting Brighton company directly and tell them the whole story. They may be able to resolve the issue with a replacement.

     

    I am sorry that you feel that our staff refused to help you in your quest. Our shop is well known for excellent, friendly customer service, a recognition of which we take great pride. When you were in the shop, they asked if you had a receipt for the purchase of your handbag, as all stores now require proof of purchase to replace such an expensive item. You told them that you did not have the receipt, at which time they informed you that without the receipt there was no proof of when you bought the bag and they could not exchange it for another one in the shop. At the time of your visit you were also informed that it is a Brighton Collectibles policy and that if there is a problem, handbags are covered by a 2 year warranty wherein they will repair or replace the bag for any issues with quality or workmanship. I hope that you are able to locate your receipt so that you can send your bag in to Brighton for repair within their warranty specifications.

     

    I know I would never shop at a store with these policies. Thanks for confirming where to avoid spending money.

    I am flying to Dulles, DC (Skywest) from wichita, ks (Expressjet) on March 21. I connect in iah with only 30 minutes. I am not familiar with the iah terminal. Any suggestions?

     

    Both of your flights will probably be in Terminal B so it shouldn't be that difficult of a connection.
