We are flying from Grand Cayman through IAH then on to Portland. Is an hour and 20 minutes long enough to go through customs and catch our flight to PDX? I'm nervous...
That is below the minimum International to Domestic connection time in Houston. It might be possible with no checked bags. Probably not possible with checked bags.
Ugh..... I asked my travel agent and she assured me that it was enough time. I guess we will see tonight. I'm pretty nervous about it though. Thanks ZAP! Do you have any recommendations for us to speed up the process?
Not much you can do. Maybe look at the schedule and see if there's a way they can rebook you to Portland through San Francisco or Denver if there is no later Nonstop flight to Portland.
Thanks for taking the time to talk to me, ZAP! Our arriving flight got in 30 minutes early so we were able to make the connection. It would've been really close if we hadn't been early!
Let me preface by saying I haven't flown in 20+ years. I have a 40 "layover" in Houston. My first flight will arrive in Terminal C, and my connecting flight departs from Terminal B. What's the quickest/easiest way to get from C to B, and is 40 minutes enough time, assuming the first flight is on time?
Thank you for your time.
Type-O. it should say 40 minute "layover"...
Terminals B and C are connected inside security by the Skyway train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi we are flying from LHR into IAH then onto MCO all with United. They have given us 2hrs 5mins (which we will have to clear immigration, collect bags, security, customs and return bags). I feel very nervous about this we are a family of 5. Do you think we will be ok?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
my son will be traveling from New Zealand tomorrow arriving at IAH at 12:45 PM. His flight to Orlando leaves at 2:30pm. He is a US citizen. Will he make it and what does he have to do in terms of re-checking baggage? Thank you.
I should mention that he is traveling on one ticket so he should not have to go back to the check-in counter with the specs as they are checked through to his final destination. Thank you.
He will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim his bag, go through US Customs, re-check his bag at the re-check desk right after, then go through security and to his departure gate in Terminal C. He has just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from Seattle to Moscow by singapore airlines and make connection at IAH. I've got only about an hour between two flights. I was told that I would have to collect my checked bags at IAH and then go through the customs/security again. Is 1 hour enough for the connection?
That is incorrect. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If your bags are tagged through to Moscow then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
ZAP, thanks for your response. When I spoke with singapore airline representative and she said I would have to pick up my bags and go through security again. You think this is incorrect?
If you are purchasing two separate reservations, it is correct. If everything is on the same reservation, it is not correct. Either way, there is no US Customs when leaving the US.
