  • Possible Delays/Cancellations

    SFo-iah-rsw departing at noon, what does it look like the chance for delays or cancellations at this point due to Isaac? Thanks

     

    This will depend on what airline you are flying. Have you checked with them or on the status of your flight?

    We are flying out of Houston to Orlando on Tuesday, 8/28. Are the flight paths going to be changed? Or our flights going to be canceled?

     

    We suggest you check with your airline. Your airline will always have the most accurate information regarding your flight. Just today, United Airlines sent out exception policies for Tropical Storm Isaac, however, IAH was not one of the airports listed. bit.ly/HEi0I2

     

    UPDATED info is now available from United: bit.ly/HEi0I2 Not sure if this is the airline you are flying with.

     

    Open your airline's website and look for special announcements at main page.

     

  • go from Bush Airport to Hobby

    I would like to know of alternatives to get to Hobby airport, other than limo or taxi. I am travelling alone with 2 suitcases. Thank you for your help.

     

    I suggest you call the Metro Airport Direct information line at 713.635.4000 - find out if their buses connect t Hobby and if they take 2 suitcases. Otherwise, contact the SuperShuttle shared-ride service (Tel: 713.523.8888)

     

  • terrible international airport

    Second time in 3 months that I have had to sprint to my next flight because of IAH's ineffective and downright maddening customs/connections to domestic flights. I will avoid IAH as an international connection airport at all costs in the future.

     

    Finding your way at IAH after arriving from an international flight and transferring to a domestic flight: The International Arrivals building (part of TE)at IAH can be accessed from both TE and TC, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby, which has an escalator down to Inter-Terminal Train - serving all other terminals. There take the escalator up, go through security check and on to your connecting gate. Allow at rush hours mornings & evening, as well during summer time, for more time (suggested gate-to-connecting-gate transfer 1 hr 15 mins.)

    I have a flight late tonight/arriving early morn from Portland, OR connecting through IAH then on to Tamps, FL. What are expectations of keeping schedule based on weather (current and forecast).

     

    Both IAH and Tampa are prone to thunderstorms happening at this time of the year - I suggest you open www.ifly.com/flight-tracker.

     

  • Terminal E to B connection

    I make a Connection in Houston. I arrive at Terminal E and have to go to Terminal C. How can I do that?

     

    At IAH Terminal E is for international arrivals. At the International Arrivals building (part of TE)you go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there you go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby; take the escalator down to the inter-terminal train and get off at Terminal C. where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Terminal E to B in one hour???

    Hi, my teenage daughter is flying alone and will be arriving at terminal E with an hour connection to terminal B. This is a domestic flight. I am assuming that the tram will connect her without her going downstairs through customs. Am I correct and will that give her enough time to get to her next flight. Thanks so much

     

    As your daughter arrives at the International Terminal E, she is apparently an international arrival and consequently has to go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there she will through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, thereafter, going straight out she will arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby which has an escalator down to the train to Terminals B. She should count on an hour for customs & transfer time. However, if she only has a carry-on bag, this will make it much quicker.

    I am leading a student mission trip to Guatemala and we have an hour to go from C5 to E 12. What is our most direct route to make the connection

     

    When arriving at IAH at gate C5 follow signs to TerminaLink Train which connects all terminals: Transfer time should be no more than 15 mins.

     

  • interntl' to domestic w/1 hr. layover
    May 29, 2012

    We are coming from Costa Rica with a 1 hr layover before catching a flight to San Francisco. Am I reading it correct in the previous posts, that that will not be enough time due to security checks in Houston???

     

    You will arrive either at Terminals E or C - both of which have US customs and the international arrivals building, part of TE can be accessed from both. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby and the Exits. This area also has an escalator down to the inter-terminal train to domestic Terminals A, B & C (where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. I would not recommend taking the connecting flight to SFO departing an hour later. Going through customs & re-checking in bags can take alone 35-50 mins. Add waiting for train, standing in line for security check and walking to connecting gate - is stretching it quite a bit.

    Beware flying into Houston if you need to clear customs. The wait can be as long as two hours. Customs officials are indifferent as to whether you make your flight or not, generally rude and over worked. There were more customs officers working at 11 pm in Calgary Alberta than in the fifth busiest airport in North America. Shame on them and I try to avoid connections in Houston if possible

     

  • TSA, slowest in the industry

    Arrived 1 1/2 hrs early to get through security. We realized we weren't going to get on our plane and no TSA would help us, Not even the manager. They delayed our stay longer when they went through every item of clothing in my small carry on bag. Even tested my 3 oz saline solution. Missed my flight and had to stay in Denver for 6 HOURS. Thanks a lot. Guy with Dreads under a cap ( Like Cat in the Hat). Needs to have an attitude adjustment, Better yet another job.
