  • terminal arrival to terminal c arrival
    Jul 10, 2013
    Is it easy to get to Terminal C arrivals from Terminal E arrivals by walking


    I will be arriving on BA195(term E) and meeting a flight from San Diego (UA) about 4pm(maybe term C)


  • How to get to terminal B?
    Jul 9, 2013
    My friend will be on United Airlines 0128 flight from Rio de Janeiro to Houston on Saturday, July 13. She'll arrive at Terminal E on Sunday, July 14 at 5:30 AM. She will take the connecting flight UA 4505. How can she get to Terminal B? She doesn't speak English an is travelling with a 10 year old child? Another question... Can I or she order a motorized car?


    All she has to do is go back through security after re-checking her baggage in Terminal E and then follow the signs to the TerminaLink train and take that to Terminal B.


  • which terminals/gates do I arrive and depart out of
    Jul 9, 2013
    FLT 5671 from LCH to IAH tomorrow and then connecting to FLT 411 to TPA. Both operated by United. Less than an hour to catch connection at IAH


    5671 will likely arrive in A-North (although it could also arrive in B) and 411 will likely depart from C (although it could also depart from E). To go between terminals, take the TerminaLink train which operates on the secure side. If your first flight is On-time you'll be OK.

    I'm coming in on United Flight UA5673 from Indy at 7:57am and I only have 51 mintues to connect to my United Express Flight UA4236 to El Paso...will I have enough time to make my connection?


    5673 will likely arrive in Terminal B and 4236 will also likely operate from Terminal B so you should be able to easily make your connection. There's a slight chance that one flight might be in Terminal A-North. If so take the TerminaLink train between terminals. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


  • I have 47 minutes in between connections at IAH - enough time?
    Jul 8, 2013
    I will be arriving on United from OMA into IAH and have 47 minutes till a connecting flight goes to CRP (also on United). I have heard that IAH just expanded the terminals and there was some concern if I had to run from A to E terminals. Is 47 minutes enough time to make two in the continental US connections?


    It appears that most of the United Express flights from OMA to IAH arrive in Terminal B (the mainline flight can arrive in C or E, usually C). All the IAH-CRP flights operate from A or B. So there's a good chance both your flights will be in B. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time regardless though.

    arriving IAH on UA4299 2:30pm departing IAH on Lufthaansa 8867 at 4:10pm.what is the distance I will have to go and can I order a motorized cart?


    Your arriving flight will likely be in Terminal B and your departing flight will be in Terminal D if it is truly on Lufthansa (however, I cannot flind a Lufthansa flight 8867 from Houston and the number 8867 indicates that it is a codeshare flight operated by United). If you need assistance, request wheelchair assistance from United. Terminals B and D are connected by the TerminaLink train.


    Thank you so much as this will be a big help - especially the info that it will most likely be a United flight not a Lufthansa flight. I would have been looking for the wrong thing.. Thanks again


    Where is your second flight to?


    My second flight is from Franfurt to Prague. Thanks for helping


    So you're flying Somewhere-IAH-FRA-PRG?

    I will be arriving on United airlines from Edmonton,Alberta then connect to Fort Lauderdale on United as well. Will I have to change terminals and if so do I catch a tram or can I walk


    As Edmonton Airport has U.S. Customs clearance, you are considered a domestic arrival at IAH. United is the only airline using Terminals A, B, C & E. On arrival, simply look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number; then look for the LinkTrain sign which starts at Terminal A and runs inside security taking a total of 30 mins to Terminal D/E station. (gate numbers correspond to Terminal (i.e., A10).


    You will likely both arrive and depart in Terminal C.


    thanks, much appreciated

    Jul 4, 2013
    I arrive 7/6 on flt 4598 terminal b and depart on flt4601 terminal a. how do I get there


    Note that sometimes 4601 will depart from Terminal B, however, if you do have to get between A and B, it's just a 5-10 minute ride on the TerminaLink train.

    Arriving from PTY to Houston on United UA1033. What Terminal I will arrive. Where do I go next (Customs/Security). My destination flight is LAX UA1695. What Terminal, internal transportation I need to take and directions to get there. Thanks a lot!


    On arrival at IAH, the International Arrivals building can be accessed from both Terminal E & C, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C. (After customs clearance and re-checking-in bags, go straight out to the International Arrivals Lobby which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train taking you to your connecting terminal). United Airlines uses Terminals A, B & E. On arrival look at overhead screens to find your flight & gate number, as well as your departure time.


    You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal C. You will likely not have to take any trains.


  • Enough time to get to connecting flight?

    Flying from LCH on Expressjet operating as United Express to Tampa. Less than an hour connection time at IAH. Will that be enough time to make my connection?


    Also, how far in advance can I find out the arrival and departure terminals?


    Your flight from Lake Charles will arrive in IAH terminal A-North or B (most of them arrive in A-north). Your Tampa flight will likely depart from C. You take the TerminaLink train between terminals. You can make it in under an hour if your first flight is on-time.


  • what terminal

  • Which check in for partner flight?
    Jun 27, 2013
    I book an international flight thru United, but the flight is with Lufthansa and is coded LH...do I check in with LH or United?


    If your first flight is operated by Lufthansa, you check in with Lufthansa.


    Thanks. That's what I figured, but wanted to be sure.
