  • Enough time?
    Oct 10, 2015
    We have booked a last minute holiday to Cancun leaving London on Friday (16th October), flights are with United via IAH. We have 2 hours between flights. When booking we were told this was plenty of time but also that we had to clear customs, reclaim our bags and check in for the final leg to Cancun. Is this enough time and do you have any tips for doing this quickly!


  • Will I have time

    Flying from las vegas to IAH. Connecting flight to MCO orlando. Will 1 hr be enough time. Will my luggage go direct to orlando.


    Yes, as long as both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will go straight to Orlando.


    many thanks for your reply... will I have time to purchase a snack ?? Any idea which terminal ? regards pete


    Both gates will likely be in C. You will probbably have enough time for a snack


  • Houston Layover
    Sep 28, 2015
    I will be landing on a domestic United Express flight in Terminal B. I will have 2:15 hours to transfer to my international flight departing from Terminal D. What is the best way to make this transfer?


    You just have to take the TerminaLink train from B to D. It runs inside security. As long as both tickets are on the same reservation you have plenty of time.


  • 1hour 50 min lay over enough?

    arr from PUJ at 7:30pm International terminal and have a domestic connection to SFO from term C departing 9:20. Assuming I will need to collect bags and recheck? can i do from international terminal or do I need to lug it to Term C.. how do I get to Term C?


    You can re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after clearing Customs. You can then go through security in E and walk to C. YOu have enough time.

    We have an 8 hour layover at Houston flying with United from Las Vegas to Cancun.. Can we leave airport and is our luggage checked through to Cancun?


    Yes, your bags will be checked through to Cancun, and yes, you can leave the airport, although unless you have friends there there's not much to do in a few hours in Houston.

  • Question about my grandpa traveling from Greece with Turkish airlines
    Sep 2, 2015
    Hello, I would like to ask and see if there is any way that I can meet my grandfather who is 90 years old, does not speak english and he is traveling from Athens Greece with Turkish airlines to your airport. He has a separate connection to Albuquerque and I would like to meet him in HOU and travel with him and get him to the next airline. Who can I ask for help; where can I possibly meet him? Thank you, Anna


    First of all this is not the airport's website. Once he clears US Customs in Terminal D he will be outside security. You could meet him there. If you are traveling with him to Albuquerque you could then go through security together and to your departure gate, if you are not traveling then you will not be allowed to go through security.


  • Change flights for non English speaking person
    Aug 26, 2015
    Hello! My mom is going to visit me in US. She will arrive from Frankfurt, Germany and after that has a flight with UA from HOU to BRO,TX. But she is not speaking English at all, she is 62 and has high blood pressure. Is there any service to help her go through? I saw wheelchairs from AirServ there. Can I order it and where? Thanks.


    If she needs wheelchair service she can request it by contacting her airline.


    But if it's not connected flights, we bought separate tickets, whom should we ask? Lufthansa or United Airlines?


    You will have to ask both then.


  • International Flight, connection to a Domestic
    Aug 24, 2015
    Hi, I will be traveling from Monterrey Mexico to Miami with a stop in IAH. My flight from Monterrey Mexico is scheduled to arrived at 2:18pm to terminal E (Aeromexico airlines). Then I have to take the flight to Miami in terminal A (American Airlines) at 4:45 pm. Do I have enough time for my connection? Do I have to exit the terminal and then do the check in for my next flight at terminal A?


    Aeromexico does not use Terminal E, they use Terminal D. Since it sounds like you purchased two separate reservations you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminal A and re-check your bags with American at the AA ticket counter (you will have to pay a checked bag fee), get your AA boarding pass, and go through security.


  • Terminal A arrival need to use United Club with Shower
    Aug 23, 2015
    My CEO is arriving in Terminal A and needs to shower prior to a meeting. Best options for doing this? Does he need to go through security to get to terminal C?


    The TerminaLink train runs inside security between all terminals. if your CEO is a United Club member he can take the TerminaLink train to C after he arrives and use the Club.

    I like this Airport very much,was there for 5 times.Usually I fly to Costa Rica. The only convenient way for me to get to and from the Airport is taking a taxi (usually I use http://kiwitaxi.com). Last time I got up so late, but fortunatelly I got in time for my flight!

    Hello. I will be flying in to Houston International Airport from Guatemala. The flight is scheduled to arrive at 4pm. I have a separate flight booked to New Orleans at 550 and will have to clear customs (I am an Irish citizen) and get my bags. Have I left myself with enough time? I spoke to a representative of the airline I'm flying with and she said the connection time should be fine, but I'm still not sure.


    It's 20 minutes longer than the minimum time and about 10 minutes shorter than what I recommend. You should be fine, and if you do miss your connection, United has lots of flights from Houston to New Orleans you can be rebooked on.


    Thanks Zap. I'm looking at flights for the later flight (today, as an example) and it is cheaper than changing my flight now, so I will leave it and hope for the best (may be see if I can take my luggage on the flight. Thanks for your help.

    Both flights will likely be in Terminal B. Your flight from Shreveport may arrive in Terminal A. If you have to change Terminals, all terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.
