  • 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

    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


  • rechecking bags from another airline
    Oct 21, 2013
    I have a connecting flight in Houston -- arriving in on an UA flight and transfering onto a Westjet flight. I understand I need to claim my bags in Houston, where would I need to go to recheck my bags with Westjet?


    Westjet does not fly to IAH. Please double check your itinerary to find the carrier that is operating your flight.

  • how do I get from gate A3D to gate C-43
    May 23, 2013
    Can anyone tell me how to get from gate A3D to gate C-43


    You arrive at Terminal A and need to take the above-ground TerminaLink train (follow signs), at the Terminal A station, connecting to Terminal C inside security. On arrival there, follow signs to the gateway to gates C43-C45
