Hi I am flying from South Africa to BJX (Mexico) via IAH. I will be arriving on an Emirates flight at 15:45 on a Saturday and the flight to BJX using United is departing at 19:10. would that be enough time to get through customs and get to the next flight? Thanks for the help
Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to bring your bags yourself from Customs to the United check-in desk to re-check your bags if you purchased two separate reservations.
Hi I am a British citizen flying from cancun with U.A to Las Vegas with a stop over connection in Houston of 1hr 23mins is this long enough to make my connection I land at 1.07 pm and depart 2.30 pm
That is not realistically enough time. The minimum International to domestic connection time in Houston is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended. They will rebook you on their next available flight to Vegas if you miss your connection, however, depending on the day of the week you are traveling that could be awhile as flights to Las Vegas are typically very full.
Thanks for your reply i arrive on a Sunday, I am not flying until next July do you recommend I try and change my connection now.
Chances are the schedule of your flights will change before next July anyway, so I would not pay a change fee at this point. If the schedule changes, you can call United and get changed to a longer connection without paying a change fee.
Thanks zap for your very helpful information fingers crossed for a schedule change
I'm flying Auckland to Houston on Air NewZealand, then onto NYC - my flight from Auckland arrives at 12.30pm and I'm looking at a 2.20pm flight to NYC (American Airlines), will that be enough time to clear customs and make it to the gate?
Since American and Air New Zealand don't have an interline agreement, you can't simply drop your bags at the recheck desk. You'll have to walk to the American desk and check it in. This is not enough time, in all likelihood. You need at least 2h10m in this situation to safely guarantee that you'll make the flight. I reccomend that you choose a later American flight, or fly United, as they do have an interlude agreement with Air New Zealand, so you would only need 1h45m for the connection.
