  • 45 minute connection time
    Jan 9, 2015
    Flight arriving from Calgary 12:05 pm, departing for Grand Cayman at 12:50- is that enough time to connect?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in IAH is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your first flight is on-time you have enough time.


  • connecting time 1:45PM->2:59PM int->dom??

    Our agency booked us a flight arriving at IAH from germany at 1:45PM (LH440/UA8866) on 03/30/15 with a connecting flight to orlando UA1083 at 2:59PM. Is it enough time or should we change flights?


    No, that is not enough time. Demand that your agency change you to a later flight to Orlando.

    we are flying in from YYC to IAH Terminal E connecting to MIA terminal C HAVE ABOUT 75 mins. what is quickest route? Will we have to collect our checked luggage, or will it be transferred for us?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Houston. You have plenty of time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C, not E.

  • SAL - IAH - EWR - BHX with 2.05 connection time @ IAH
    Dec 31, 2015
    Good morning everybody and happy 2015! ^___^ I have the following flight plan on January the 8th, 2015: San Salvador (El Salvador) SAL - Houston IAH {UA 1467} (2 hours 5 minutes connection time) Houston IAH - Newark EWR {UA 0369} (1 hour 50 minutes connection time) Newark EWR - Birmingham (United Kingdom) BHX {UA 0027} I bought the three flights as a single ticket with United. Although I wish I could check in my bag in SAL to final destination and claim it at BHX, I doubt that this is allowed on a International-to-National and National-to-International USA connection combo like the one I have at IAH-EWR The question is: do I have to claim my bag at IAH, or EWR, or it can be sent straight to final destination? And: how long does it take to claim and re-check my bag at IAH? Does United have any priority queue for short connections? Kindly let me know! Your insight is much appreciated! And, again, have a wonderful 2015! ^___^ - Sam


  • Connection MTY-IAH-DFW and DFW-IAH-MTY
    Jan 13, 2015
    Hi, my sister and I have a roundtrip flight this january 1st, 2015 from MTY ( Mexico)-DFW ( Dallas,Tx) and returning on January 5th. Both flights (with United Airlines) have connection in Houston (IAH). From MTY Arriving (Terminal E) at 19:30PM and a flight departing from IAH to DFW ( Terminal C) at 21:05PM having 1hr 35min to make the connection. Is enough time to go through US Immigration and Customs,I-94,etc? But I'm worried more about the return (DFW-MTY). From DFW Arriving ( Terminal C) at 8:05AM and the flight to MTY is departing (Terminal B) at 9:00AM, giving us only 55 mins, it is enough time for us? For the return (to MTY) our baggage will be transferred (no need to re-check)? Do we have to pass the US immigration and customs? (Like returning the I-94 form, etc)? Thanks!!! and Happy New Year!!!


    On your entry you have enough time but just barely. On your return all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. You do not go through US Immigration when exiting the US. Also, the paper I-94 form was eliminated last year. Exit is recorded electronically by airline manifests.




  • 50 min transfer
    Dec 29, 2015
    I have a 50 minute transfer time between arriving from Miami and departing to Edmonton AB Canada. Is that enough time? Also, will our baggage be automatically transferred?


    Yes, your baggage will automatically be transferred. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you need to change terminals the TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • International Layover at Houston in 1.20hrs?
    Dec 29, 2015
    Hello, I am from Germany and I am considering taking a flight tomorrow from Munich and I have to catch the flight to Bogota within 1:20hrs. Is this enough? Last year I did not make it as I did not have an onward ticket, but this year maybe that is not a problem. Thanks for your help!


    It will still be quite difficult. That is 10 minutes shorter than the recommended time for such a connection. It's possible, but difficult.


  • connecting houston 2.5 hours layover
    Dec 29, 2015
    I am flying from Belize to San Francisco on United tomorrow 30 the December. I have a 2.5 hour connection ti e - what are immigration clearance times like right now - do I have to collect luggage and re-check-in for the IAH to SFO flight?


    That should be enough time. Yes, you will have to claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • From chicago to houston to san jose
    Dec 28, 2014
    We have 40 min to connect to a flight leaving to San Jose coming into Houston from Chicago on United Airlines. Whats the probability we make the flight ? It is called a legal flight set up by United Airlines. I am worried cuz I have never left Chicago on time.


    It's possible if your flight is on-time but obviously there isn't much time to spare in case of delays. Because the flight is between two United hubs and lots of passengers are connecting, United tries especially hard to make these flights on-time if they can.


  • connection terminal C - D
    Dec 26, 2014
    I'm considering booking a flight from Las Vegas to Frankfurt through IAH with a 1h 36 minute layover. Is that enough time, terminal C - terminal D ?


    Yes. That is plenty of time.
