  • Enough time?
    May 24, 2014
    I am travelling from IST-IAH, and need to book a flight from IAH to dallas. Is 1 hr 45min enough time to clear customs, get luggage, check-in for my new flight and get to the boarding gate? If not, my other option (which is more expensive, so I'm trying to avoid it) gives me 2 hs 15mins. Is that enough time to clear customs, get luggage, check-in, etc...?? I don't know if it helps, but I will be travelling business on turkish airlines, so maybe there is a special line through customs for business class passengers? Also, i'm an american citizen, so maybe that will speed things along too. Thanks for the help!!!


    While you arrive with Turkish at Terminal D (TD) under today's departure listings United flies from IAH to DAL (that's the domestic Dallas terminal close to the city) - no listing for DFW - the internat'l Airport. If you buy a United Airline ticket (both Turkish & United are Star Alliance members) your bags should be automatically transferred after customs clearance & baggage re-check. Can't tell you which Concourse your connection will be (United is the only one using all Terminals, other than TD). For Arrivals procedure & transfers I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

  • Elderly Mother Arriving at International Terminal
    May 27, 2014
    My mother is arriving from over seas. She is wheel chair bound. She is going to have 2 large bags with her. Is there any way that I can get into the international baggage claim area to help her with the luggage. If not, how can I get her help.


    No, you cannot. If she has wheelchair service they should assist with her bags until she exits customs.


    elderly father is arriving from Louisiana on united airlines where can I pick him up?


  • Layover time
    Apr 10, 2014
    Hi. I am wanting to book a flight with United from Austin to London Heathrow (domestic - international) via Houston on a Friday night. Is 1 hour enough time for a layover if the flight is on time? WIll I need to change tereminals?


    At IAH, United uses Terminals A, B, C & E - reached by the above-ground TerminaLink train inside security - you have enough time for transfer.


    You will likely arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal E.


  • how early should I leave airport Marriott for flight to Guatemala
    Apr 3, 2014
    I will arrive at IAH on United from Denver around 1:30am and don't need to catch my next flight on United to Guatemala City until 9:30am. I am planning to spend the night at the airport Marriott but am wondering what time I should leave the hotel in order to have enough time to go back through security and get to my terminal and catch the 9:30 flight. Thanks.


    I would leave at about 8:30 if you are able to check in online and 8 if you are not.

    Am flying DB7342 from Harlington and NEED ASSISTANCE at IAH to connect to my flight to Chicago. Only have 30 minutes to make it and an electric cart.


    You need to contact United (the operating carrier) and request wheelchair assistance.


  • UA1700 and connect to UA1
    Feb 11, 2014
    I am planning to book my flight to Tokyo JP from Philadelphia with United, the layover time in IAH is only 1 hour 5 mins. United website didn't show the in&out terminals. Will I have enough time for the connection?


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E, which are directly connected.


  • Smoking
    Feb 10, 2014
    Terminal B arrival, terminal E departure. 3.5 hr layover. Which terminal do I exit to have a smoke?


    Probably easiest to take your smoke break outside Terminal B, then go back inside when you're done, take the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminal E, and then go through security there. You could alternatively go back through security in B, then take the TerminaLink train to E.


  • Need assistance
    Jan 27, 2014
    Arriving at IAH on UA1563at 8:05 AM departing to Calgary on UA729 at 8:50 AM. Need wheel chair assistance. Can this be done in the 45 minutes allocated?


    Have you already called United to request wheelchair assistance? You should have enough time as both flights should be in Terminal C.


  • arrival elderly person
    Jan 14, 2014
    can I go to the gate to pick up my father (late 80s)


    Usually no, if he has wheelchair service they will bring him out and you can meet him in the baggage claim and if not can he find the baggage claim on his own? It's well marked.


  • Fly in from LoveField to get on Flight to Buenos Aries
    Jan 14, 2014
    We scheduled to arrive @ 820 PM (UA flight) and need to get on UA flight to Buenos Aries @ 900 PM. Since we've never been to IAH, I can see a big problem looming and I couldn't find any UA live help. Please help. Thanks.


    That is barely enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. They are connected beyond security by the TerminaLink train. Your flight from DAL will have to be on-time.


  • 32 minutes between flights? Will we make it?
    Dec 27, 2013
    United changed our flight times. We arrive from Newark at 12:04. Flight leaves IAH at 12:36 for Orange County. It looks like we will arrive and depart from the same terminal- C- although the departure gate has not been announced yet. I am a nervous wreck!! Will we make it?!


    by the way, we leave tomorrow!!


    Yes, both of your flights will likely be in C. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


  • arrive from Chi with 55 minutes to transfer to POS with UA
    Dec 26, 2013
    is that enough time?


    Yes if your first flight is on time. You will arrive in C or E and depart from C.


    Sorry you will depart from E not C.


  • Terminal D Check in
    Dec 16, 2013
    I am flying IAH to Dubai with Emirates from Terminal D. I have very restricted mobility. Emirates will provide wheelchair from Check In desk only. From limo drop off is it far to check in ? Are there valets available at drop off to take luggage ?


  • Travelling with children
    Dec 10, 2013
    Hi My wife is arriving at IAH from Dubai with 2 kids (4yrs and 1 yr) She also has 6 checked in bags. is there any way i can arrange for some one to help her. she and my elder son can walk, and she cannot carry the younger once and get the bags by herself what would be the best way to get help


    There are baggage carts available for free in International baggage claim. If she cannot get the bags from the belt to the cart she will just have to ask someone to help her. http://www.fly2houston.com/iah-terminals-and-amenities
