    Arriving from New Orleans going onto Las Vegas with an hour connection. Will bags have to be collected and will that be enough time. Both flights with United

     

    You don't have to collect your bags in Houston. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If they are in different terminals the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

  • Connecting flight San Jose Costa rica to London only 1 hour and 14 min

    Hi! United booked us on a flight with only 1 hour and 14 minutes connecting time in Houston. Will we be able to make it? We both have checked bags and have swedish passports. We tried to change it but basically it has been a nightmare talking with United airlines.

     

    It's possible. If you are on an International to International connection through Houston you do not have to claim and re-check your bags. However, you still have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. There's no time to spare though.

    Flying from Mke on American connecting in IAH on LAN to Santiago, Chile. Time between flights is listed as 50 minutes (landing to departure). How am I best to make this tight connection?

     

    American does not fly from Milwaukee to Houston are you on United or are you connecting through Dallas? LAN also doesn't fly to Houston or Dallas. Please double check your reservation.

     

  • Domestic arrival at Terminal E, no checked bag

    Can I exit at Terminal E if I have no checked bag, rather than walking to Terminal C if I arrive on a domestic flight? If so, how?

     

    There should be an exit next to the security checkpoint that is on the departures level of Terminal E. If there isn't you can ask the agent there where the nearest exit is, there has to be one somewhere in Terminal E.

    Coming back from Merida, Mexico to Atlanta by way of IAH, is 72 minutes sufficient transfer time to clear customs and change from Terminal E to C?

     

    No, the minimum International to Domestic connection time is 90 minutes and I recommend 2 hours. If this is already booked you need to contact your airline or travel agent to be rebooked.

     

  • No Priority line at TSA for International returns

    FYI: Just returned from Belize through Houston. There were no Priority lines at TSA check point (same as I experienced last year). Do not count on whisking through this point, no mater your ticket level. The line did move pretty briskly, however. About 20 minutes at Customs and 20 minutes thhrough the TSA check. We will be getting our Global entry and TSA pre checks to help reduce some time for next years trips. :-) Does anyone know if precheck will help with the TSA line or does this merely mitigate that you have to take off (shoes/belt) at the line?

     

    Yes, Pre-check gets a separate line at security at most airports.

     

    Thanks, Do you know if that is still true at IAH on international returns? I did not see any separate line, other than flight crew, at that TSA checkpoint.

    In December I will be flying in from Seattle and arriving at IAH at 623PM and departing to GDL at 910PM. Can you tell me what and where I need to go when I get to IAH and what do what and where do I need to catch flight to GDL? Will I have enough time to eat? Can you change US money to Mexico money at IAH? Any advice is appreciated. Any information about purchasing bus tickets at GDL to get to Michoacán? Thanks. I think is great to be able to post.

     

    On your way to Guadalajara all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate, which will be in terminal C or E to your departure gate which will be in Terminal B or E. There will be a currency exchange at IAH but you will get better rates by getting Pesos from your local bank or even from your hotel in Mexico. You will go through Mexican immigration and customs when you get to Guadalajara. Where in Michoacan are you going? it's a fairly large state. https://www.primeraplus.com.mx/ is a bus service that operates in that region. I assume you speak Spanish or this will be a very difficult trip for you.

     

    I will be traveling to Cualcoman. Yes, I do speak Spanish. Thanks so much for your quick response.

    My wife and daughter are arriving @ IAH tonight. They are to arrive in terminal E, but if I remember baggage claim for domestic is in terminal C. Where do they go and where can I meet them?

     

    Yes, if they are on a domestic flight arriving into E they will claim their bags at the Terminal C baggage claim. You can meet them there.

    My aunt says that she will go thru customs in Honolulu but arriving at Terminal E this morning. Does that mean she has to go thru customs again? Can I meet her at the gate?

     

  • short layover in Houston from CUN

    Hi, My wife and I, along with our 2 small kids, have a 1 hour 12 minute layover in Houston coming in from Cancun. Will we even have time to clear customs and board my plane to LAX? Thanks, Fernando M.

     

    That is 18 minutes shorter than the minimum international to domestic connection time at IAH. I recommend contacting your travel agent or United for a later flight to LAX.

     

    thank you for the advice.
