Hello! I've just realized that we only have 35 minutes to catch our international flight to CUN. I've noticed there are two different travel times that only allow at 35 min layover. Has anyone made this connection before? LIT to IAH to CUN. This is our honeymoon, and I really don't want to get bumped! Anything we can do to make sure we catch the flight?
It's possible but it's solely dependent on the first flight being on-time. You can't do anything to make a flight more on-time.
Will arrive Houston at 13.48 with United and due to depart with KLM to Amsterdam at 1530. Is the connection time sufficient.
No, that's not realistically enough time to make an International to International connection in Houston on two separate reservations, especially if you have checked bags. I recommend at least 3 hours.
Outgoing the connection at IAH from OKC is only 1hour.3 mins and its a change of terminal. Is it enough time.
Return the connection is 2hours 05 min - clear customs, get bags and make the connecting flight - is it enough time…..
Yes, both of those connection times should be sufficient.
Thanks for that! Rather too early than too late!!☺
Iam arriving at IAH from LHR in UA879 flight and my connection flight is UA6295 to OKC.is it required to collect my check -in luggages at IAH?
Yes, you must claim your bags in Houston to take them through US Customs, afterwards you immediately re-check them, then go through security and to your departure gate.

Landing American Airlines at 17:20 terminal A and departing Air New Zealand at 20:00 Terminal D.
Sufficient time ? Do we get the subway from TA to TD ?
Two checked in bags
Yes, you have to claim your bags, Take the Subway to Terminal D and then re-check your bags with ANZ and go through security. You have enough time.

Hello! I'm looking at flights from Toronto to Quito, Ecuador via Houston. Will a two hour layover be enough time? If I fly Air Canada to Houston and United Airlines to Quito, will I have to pick up my bags and recheck them? I'm worried this won't be enough time, but the only other option is a six hour layover.

You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston on the way to Quito is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skyway train. 2 Hours is enough time.
Thank you!
I am flying Air New Zealand to Brisbane Australia after arriving in IAH from Washington. I have I hour and twenty minutes from arrival time to departure time. Is this enough time?
If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and you have enough time.
I'm travelling from Costa Rica to California; there is an option to fly through IAH with 1:40 hrs connection. Is that enough time to do immigration, customs and change terminals?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thanks, Zap! I'll try another option
We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) with French passports + ESTA.
Flying on Sunday 11/2 from London to Cancun with connection at IAH, all the way with United.
We have 1h45 to connect.
Will it be sufficient to go through security & immigration without too much stress?

Many thanks in advance.
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly but doesn't leave much time to spare.
