I am arriving in IAH from Leon/Guanajuanto at 2:52 pm on Feb 19. I am supposed to take a flight from IAH to Chicago at 6:26 pm. Reading the previous posts, I am afraid I don't have enough time to get through immigration, etc. Both flights are United, I'm a US citizen. I can check or carry on a bag. What's your advice? Re-book? Thanks for your help.
WHOOPS! Me again. I got that wrong. I arrive in IAH at 5 pm, leaving I only have 1.5 hours in IAH. Impossible?
Not impossible but pretty close to it. Carry-ons only will help.
I arrive business class from London on United with connection to Cancun again business class within 2 hrs. I am british citizen, is this possible with Checked bag. ? appreciate advise.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
If my flight arrives at terminal C22 and departs at E11, what is the fastest way to get from arrival to departure? Is it on the same floor? Do I take a tram or run? 45 minutes in between flights. Thanks in advance.
Yes, those are on the same level and you can just walk between them. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there

I have a KLM flight from ams to iah, and then a flight from iah to cancun. Flight are on different carriers and not booked as 1 trip. Would 2 hours of connection time be sufficient? Thx for sharing your knowledge :)
No, I don't think that's enough time if you plan on bringing checked baggage. it's barely enough time with no checked bags if everything goes perfectly.
Hi ! I will arrive with United or Spirit from Las Vegas, collect the bags and check in with a Singapore Airlines flight to Manchester. How many time should I plan for my transit in Houston ? Thanks
At least 3 hours.
From Managua to final destination Mexico - going through Houston, both planes United. Ony 1hr 10 minutes to make it happen, possible? Do I need to do customs and pick -rechecked bags AND THEN DO SECURITY?
Sounds risky but other options involves 20 hours flights with 8-12 hs layovers...
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP AND COLLABORATION!
You do have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you do not have to claim and re-check your bags. 70 minutes is extremely risky, especially for a non-citizen or Global Entry/Sentri member.
Thanks so much for your information
Means a lot-
You are doing an awesome job helping out people.

GOD BLESS YOU!
HI. I´m planning a trip from Miami to Managua Nicaragua. Best route is through Houston with a layover of 40m. Should I do again customs in Houston? I am from Costa Rica. I am afraid 0 minutes will not be enough time to take the other flight....Ia ppreciate in advance your sincere comments.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do on your way to Managua is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 40 minutes is possible.
I am reaching Houston IAH Terminal C at 4 20 pm. I have to reach my shuttle at 5 at Terminal A. Will there be enough time? Else I have to book a shuttle that would pick me from Terminal C. Thanks in advance
Realistically, no that's not enough time unless everything goes perfectly if you have checked bags. If you don't have checked bags, I might try it.
Thanks, I do have checked in luggage and will have to reach Terminal B from Terminal C. What is the best way to reach Terminal B? ANy suggestions?
The Subway train is the way to go from C to B with checked luggage after claiming it.
I arrive from NYC to IAH in terminal C and have a 1h layover to catch my flight to Quito, ecuador, from terminal E. Both flights are United Airlines. Is it enough time? Any suggestions?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be travelling back from Costa Rica to London through IAH with United (all in terminal E) and I have a 2h transfer time. Is that enough?
Yes, that should be enough time.
