I would like to make sure 1hr 50mins is enough to connect onto my flight to Costa Rica. Both flights with United on the same booking.

Also I'd like to know which terminal I will arrive in (coming from London Heathrow), and which terminal I will depart from - I expect my bags will be checked through to Costa Rica (Liberia). Thanks!
You will both arrive and depart in Terminal E. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I'm flying from Vancouver YVR to IAH where I'll catch a connection flight to Fort Lauderdale- FLL, and from there another one to Brazil (all flights in only one ticket from United Airlines). Since I'll probably have already made the US customs preclearance in Vancouver, will I have to recheck my baggage in IAH or is it going all the way to the final destination?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Houston - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Wow, you are fast! Thank you so much!
I have a 40 minute connection time between landing in IAH and my flight to Toronto is this enough time?
Where are you flying into IAH from?
We are flying via United from cancun to Omaha, NE with connection at IAH. The layover is only 1hr 30 min. Is that enough time to make it through customs?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi, my husband arrives at IAH from Auckland NZ then transferrs to a donestic flight to Syracuse NY ... If his bag is tagged all the way to Syracuse will he have to recheck it after customs or is there a drop off point for Inernational to Domestic transfers ??
In Houston he will go through US Immigration, claim his bag, go through US Customs, then re-check his bag right after at the re-check drop desk, then go through security and to his departure gate.
Thanks for your reply ... Is this an airline specific drop or just a transfer drop point ?
It's a general drop point, although nearly everybody will be getting on a United flight.
can I leave from terminal C for an international flight to canada?
Yes, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. United flights to Canada depart from Terminals B and C.
I'm taking a flight with United Airlines from Mexico City to Chicago with a 1h55m layover at Houston and a terminal change, is this enough time to make this connection? Do I have to get through security again or re-check luggage? Thanks!
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight from Toronto through Santiago connecting in Houston. There is only one hour between the connecting flights.

However, US customs from Toronto to Houston are in the Toronto Airport. Once we land in Houston, will we still have to get our bags to check them in again?
No, 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. You have enough time.
We are leaving from Termial A but have Global Entry interviews at Terminal E. How do we get from TA to TE inside security.
You can take the Skyway train from A to E inside security.
We are travelling from SFO to IAH, and then on to LHR, with a 1hr stopver in IAH. Is this enough time? Thank you.
If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks for the prompt. Yes, all is on the same reservation
