I'll be traveling on December from Caracas airport to Tampa airport, so far I have two flight options: One makes a connection on IAH, and the other one makes a connection on IAH and FLL. Both require terminal changes. What I'd like to know:

Do I have to claim and re-check my bags when I get to IAH or FLL?
Both flights are from United, the one that makes the connection on FLL also has a flight from Silver Airways.
In Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. I would try to book the flight that goes directly from Houston to Tampa. Connecting to Silver at FLL is a bit of a hassle.
Is 49 min connection in IAH enough? Not checking bags.
Coming from Pittsburgh going to Cabo San Lucas. Flying United.
What terminal are we expected to fly into and what terminal will we be flying out of to catch flight to Cabo San Lucas?

Thank you.
That is enough time. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal E. However, you have no time to spare if the flight from Pittsburgh is late.
I will have to arrive at the airport just one hour prior to my departure time(to chicago). Will I be okay with this? I am thinking of checking in online before I get there.
Yes, definitely check in online. You should be OK but there's no guarantees.
My flight from DFW to MUN (Germany) is via IAH. Do I need to do security check again and IAH. My flight is throughout united airlines.
Is 50 minutes layover sufficient
All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security again. You have enough time.
Hello! I'm looking to fly from Minneapolis to Managua, Nicaragua. It connects in Houston with a 65 minuyte layover.

Is this enough time to get to the flight for Managua? Will we need to claim our baggage or will it be passed through automatically?

Ready to book the tickets, but need to ensure it'll work as planned. Thanks in advance for any guidance!
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on United then all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
i am arriving domestic United and going to international United for Buenos Aries, do in have enough time for a 45 minute connection? thank you
Yes, that's enough time but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
Sunday 11/13 I am flying United 335 from GDL on to United 6148 to ATL, I have 1hr 55min between flights. Will I Make it through customs in time for my connection and what terminal will I arrive in and how far is that from my connecting terminal?
You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. You will depart from Terminal B or C. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
Hi! I'm Mexican flying United Airlines from MEX to IAH and then to NRT. The first flight arrives in IAH at 8:38 and the second one departs at 10:15 (this one is operated by ANA).This is a 1h37m connection. Do you think this is enough time? Will I have to change terminals? If so, is it easy to do it fast?
The airline changed our flight schedule and we now have only 40 minutes connection time at IAH. Our flight from Chicago O'Hare to Houston arrives at 5 pm, and the flight from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica leaves at 5:40 pm. Can you tell me the likely terminals we'll arrive at/depart from at IAH and whether we're likely to make our connection with only 40 minutes? And would we need to take the Skyway or the Subway to get to the departure terminal ? We'll only have carry-on bags, no checked bags.
You will arrive in C and depart from E. This is possible if the flight from Chicago is on-time. You will not have to use the Skyway.
On Sunday I am due to arrive from London Heathrow at 15:15 on United. I am scheduled to leave for Managua, again on United, at 17:35. I am UK National with valid ESTA. Can I make that connection. Any tips for the best way to get through immigration etc?
Yes, you can make that connection. Since you are on an International to International connection all on UA, you can use the Onestop immigration and customs counters.
