I will be arriving with United from Costa Rica in Terminal E and havng a connection flight with Lufhansa from Terminal D in Houston. Do I have to immigrate into the US and what's about the luggage. Do I have to clear the Luggage in Terminal E after arrival from Costa Rica and re check in or will the luggae directly tranferred to my final destination to Frankfurt ?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, Customs and security. However, since you are on an International to International connection, you should not have to claim your bags.
Nov. 7 I arrive from New Orleans at 7:51 AM on United Airlines UA1117 and I leave at 8;45 on UA1776 to Calgary. Will my checked bag be transferred directly to the ongoing flight and, in general, should I be able to make the connection? Any suggestions to increase my odds of making it?
Yes, your bags will be transferred for you. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Thanks for the reassurance. The tight connections makes me nervous.
Hi there. I'm flying from Dublin to Houston on January 1st, landing at 3.15pm flying via London. I have the chance to swap and fly through Newark landing in Houston at 4.05pm having being pre cleared in Dublin. Which do you think would get me through quicker? Thanks.
It would be about the same. I personally would avoid the connection in Newark.
We will be arriving in IAH at 5:20pm in Cancun MX. We need to clear customs and make it to our connecting flight to SNA by 7:00pm. Will that work? Was not aware that we would have to do this when booking the flight.
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am arriving Air NZ terminal D & leaving terminal A to Toronto on Air Canada. Is there a recheck of bags at Terminal D for Air Canada flights (is all on one ticket & is code share)? I have 3 hrs between flights - presume this is enough? Thanks
Yes, you can re-check your bags in Terminal D at the re-check desk. You should have enough time.
