I apologize in advance if this has been asked before. We have a very short layover in IAH (EWR to IAH to CUN). 50 min to be exact. WE are on United. I'm not even sure what terminals we are at. Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Newark is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from E. They are connected inside security.
Hi, i have been provided with a itinerary option to land Houston at 2 PM from UA6164 and next flight UA1034 departs at 3.35 PM. Would it be possible to make the transit. What would be scenario if i have and don´t have check in baggage.
United 6164 is from Mexico? if so that's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Not having checked bags helps.
Hello, we do have a flight Belize-iho-Munic. All flights are United Airlines. Landing in Housten at 3:05 and departing for munic at 4:30. will that be enought time? Do we have to pick up the luggage and recheck? Do we need to change Terminals?
That is below the minimum recommended time. You will not have to claim your bags, but you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. Both flights should be in Terminal E.
I mean Belize-Housten-Munic...
It was booked by United Airways...is there a possibilty to Speed up ?
You can use the OneStop line in Houston. But there's no guarantee that will be faster.
What will Happen if we miss the flight?
If I fly in on UA1490 (arriving 5:35pm) and need to clear customs to depart on UA1242 (departing 7:15pm), is 1 hr 40 min enough time? It's a Tuesday.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, I am considering purchasing a flight from HUX to CMH, passing through IAH. There is a 1.5 hr layover in IAH. I have Global Entry (as well as twin toddlers which slow us down). Is this enough time if no checked bag? With checked bags?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Not checking bags will make it easier.
Is it a long walk to customs?
I am flying into IAH terminal A at 19:05 on an American Airlines flight and get a connecting BA flight from terminal D at 20:25 and do not have any check bags but am from the UK does this leave me enoght time to catch my connecting flight?
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you already have your BA boarding pass you can just take the Skyway train from A to D and walk to your BA departure gate.
I fly in the afternoon from Huntsville to IAH with a flight out of IAH to Frankfurt, Germany. My connection time is 50 minutes and I will have checked bags. Is this too tight? What if I didn't check bags?

That is enough time if the flight from Huntsville is on-time. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Houston on the way to Huntsville, so bags don't matter.
We arrive from Harlingen,TX at Gate B5 and depart to Detroit at Gate B85. We have 30 minutes between flights. Will we have enough time? How far between gates? Should we request a motorized cart? If so, how do we do this?
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly. You can't specifically request a cart. Those are for people who have wheelchair service who need to go a long way. Just follow the signs and move as quickly as you can.
I am arriving from Montreal at 8.05 PM and have a connecting flight to Guatemala City at 9.55 PM. I was given contradictory information regarding the baggage by United employees so I am not sure whether I need to re-check the baggage or not. First, I was told that yes, I had to do it, and then that the baggage will be checked through till my final destination. Both flights are booked through United, but the air carrier of the first fllght is Air Seoul. Please advise, thank you!
On your way to Guatemala, since you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Houston. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Air Seoul does not fly from Montreal to Houston, so both flights will be on United.
Hi, I'll be flying from Minneapolis and connecting in Houston with a 95 min layover before going from Houston to Auckland. Wil this be sufficient time considering I am an Australian citizen?
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
