Hi we are flying first class from LAX to Grand Cayman and have a 1 hour 10 minute connection in Houston. Is that enough time to transfer from a domestic flight from LAX to an international flight to Grand Cayman. I should mention we will have a 1 year old in toe.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you!
Hi there, my wife and flying with United from Guatemala City to Frankfort/Germany. We will be landing in Houston at 16:35, continuing 18:10 also with United. Do we have to claim our baggage und re-check them? Is there enough time to catch the connecting flight? Thanks for any information!
Since it's an International to International connection all on United you don't have to claim your bags. You have just enough time.
Great! Thanks for the speedy response!
I am flying with United airlines ( flight UA879) from Heathrow to Managua via Houston. I have an ESTA but am not a US citizen so can I take advantage of the one stop immigration or will have have to reclaim my bags and check them in again for the Houston to Managua flight (UA1421). Thank you
Yes, you can use Onestop.
So that means I don't have to claim my bags at Houston correct?

thank you
We are flying with Untied from Tulsa, OK to Punta Cana with our connection in Houston. We are to arrive in Houston at 8:50am and depart at 9:50am. Is this enough time to go through customs and security, and make our connection?
There is no US Customs or special security when leaving the US. All you have to do on your way to Punta Cana is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Houston. You have enough time.
Thank you! Our return from Punta Cana to IAH has a 2 hour layover in IAH before getting on our plane to go home. Should this be enough time to get through customs and security?
Yes, that is enough time on your return.
We are travelling to Cancun after arriving in IAH on an International flight. Is 1hour 40mins enough transit time?
I forgot to mention we are flying from New Zealand with a Star Alliance carrier
That's possible but really pushing the limits.
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.
