We have booked a flight with one stop in IAH. We arrive at 8:25am, get off one flight and board another with departure time of 9:09am. How do our bags get from one plane to another? Is there somewhere special we need to go before boarding the plane that takes us out of the country? Both flights are through United Airlines but 2 separate planes. Our flight is this Friday!
Were are you flying from? If it's somewhere in the US then all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
We are coming home (US Citizens) from Calgary to Atlanta, through Houston. I have called United Customer Service twice and they are telling me that we don't have to go get our bags and go through customs in Houston, that we do this in Atlanta. We only have an hour in Houston, and if they are wrong, I am afraid we will miss our connecting flight. Do we pick up our bags and go through customs in Houston, or are they correct. The flight is today.
Actually they are completely wrong. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Calgary.
