    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

    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?
    Jul 3, 2013
    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.

  • 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.


  • where to check in for United international flights

  • Transfer Counter???
    Jun 26, 2013
    Arriving on Delta from CVG to IAH. Will be then flying out on United to San Fran and then to Auckland,NZ. Been told there is a transfer counter at IAH Delta arrival baggage? or will I have to get my bag, take a tram out of security,go to Terminal C United and then check in there. Please advise quickest process. Thanks


    Were your tickets bought on one reservation? If so your bags should be transfered automatically. United also has a check-in desk in Terminal A for United Express flights. You might be able to use that. Otherwise you'll just have to take it with you to Terminal C on the Inter-Terminal train.

    I'm arriving from Monterrey, Mexico on United Express and my connection Houston-Newark on United leaves 2 hours and 20 minutes after my arrival. Do you believe I can make it through customs in that time and catch the plane? What would be the fastest way after I clear customs to get to my next plane, seems like I arrive terminal E and leave from terminal C.


    Yes, you should have enough time. You can go back through security in E and walk to your gate in C.


    Okay, it's just that I've been reading about 2 hour wait in customs line and that makes me wonder if that would be enough time


  • What Terminal?
    Jun 25, 2013
    I'm flying on United from Phoenix into IAH the end of July, what terminal does United normally fly into from Phoenix? I've never been to IAH and understand it is very large. I also have a connecting flight from IAH to Cleveland, don't know what terminal I will fly out of either. HELP! Only have 1 hour between flights....and I am scared to death to fly and flying into an unknown airport is unsettling!


    If your Phoenix-Houston flight is operated by United, it will arrive in Terminal C or E (usually C). If it is operated by US Airways it will arrive in Terminal A-South. If your flight to Cleveland is operated by United Express it will leave from B or C. If it is operated by regular United it will likely leave from C. If you need to go between terminals the TerminaLink train runs inside security and allows you to get between any two gates in the airport in under 25 minutes.

    Nice wine list.... But using a silver plastic fork to cut a Filet is a big no no! If you are going to have Opus One on the wine list, get some proper cutlery. Also, you recommend your steak mid-rare, so make sure your cooks don't mistake that for mid-well. The two stars are for my server, Katy was easy going and knowledgable.
