Hi I am arriving into Houston from New Zealand on 4th Dec at 1.45pm and connecting to Columbus via UA. Flight leaves for Columbus at 3.50 same day. Please could you advise if i will have enough time to make it.
Many thanks and appreciation
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I'm flying Delta from LGA to IAH and then Spirit from IAH to SJD (Cabo). I have 81 minutes in between. I assume this is fine, considering it's same terminal so I just go from arrival gate to departure gate (no customs or immgration as I'm leaving US)? Even if I have to leave and re-enter through security, I feel like I definitely have more than enough time?

I'm more worried about the trip back... SJD to IAH on Spirit, then IAH to LGA on Delta. I have 90 minutes in between. Is this enough to clear immigration and customs in terminal D or E, travel to terminal A, go through security and make the second flight? I have global entry and TSA pre check. However, my companion with same itinerary does not...

Any thoughts would be helpful!
I agree that it should be enough on the way there but is borderline impossible on the way back.
Do you think we should cancel and book different flights?
Well, Spirit flights aren't changeable. I guess I would just try it and if you miss it, you'll just have to pay the same day change fee with Delta. It would be cheaper than paying $200 per person now in change fees.
Hi - I'm traveling from DEN to IAH and then on to the Cayman Islands. I only have 70 minutes between connections at IAH. Do I have to go through customs at IAH and do I have enough time? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I'll be traveling on December from Caracas airport to Tampa airport, so far I have two flight options: One makes a connection on IAH, and the other one makes a connection on IAH and FLL. Both require terminal changes. What I'd like to know:

Do I have to claim and re-check my bags when I get to IAH or FLL?
Both flights are from United, the one that makes the connection on FLL also has a flight from Silver Airways.
In Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. I would try to book the flight that goes directly from Houston to Tampa. Connecting to Silver at FLL is a bit of a hassle.
Is 49 min connection in IAH enough? Not checking bags.
Coming from Pittsburgh going to Cabo San Lucas. Flying United.
What terminal are we expected to fly into and what terminal will we be flying out of to catch flight to Cabo San Lucas?

Thank you.
That is enough time. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal E. However, you have no time to spare if the flight from Pittsburgh is late.
I will have to arrive at the airport just one hour prior to my departure time(to chicago). Will I be okay with this? I am thinking of checking in online before I get there.
Yes, definitely check in online. You should be OK but there's no guarantees.
My flight from DFW to MUN (Germany) is via IAH. Do I need to do security check again and IAH. My flight is throughout united airlines.
Is 50 minutes layover sufficient
All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security again. You have enough time.
Hello! I'm looking to fly from Minneapolis to Managua, Nicaragua. It connects in Houston with a 65 minuyte layover.

Is this enough time to get to the flight for Managua? Will we need to claim our baggage or will it be passed through automatically?

Ready to book the tickets, but need to ensure it'll work as planned. Thanks in advance for any guidance!
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on United then all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
i am arriving domestic United and going to international United for Buenos Aries, do in have enough time for a 45 minute connection? thank you
Yes, that's enough time but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
Sunday 11/13 I am flying United 335 from GDL on to United 6148 to ATL, I have 1hr 55min between flights. Will I Make it through customs in time for my connection and what terminal will I arrive in and how far is that from my connecting terminal?
You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. You will depart from Terminal B or C. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
