I am leaving RDU with a connecting flight in IAH to Guatemala City. Will I have to pick up checked baggage and go thru customs at IAH and recheck baggage before going to gate to depart for Guatemala?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do on the way to Guatemala is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, I will arrive in terminal A from Salt Lake city and my connecting onward international flight is from terminal D. I will have 4 pieces baggage. Can I use baggage cart inside skytrain to move my luggage from terminal A to D?
What airlines are you flying? If you are flying on two separate reservations you have to use the Subway Train which runs underground outside security to Terminal D.
I am flying Delta till Houston. From Houston to Doha by Qatar.
If I have to use subway train, are carts allowed as I have 4 baggages. Also, are there tram services I can avail?
Hello: We arrive at terminal B on flights 6073 and depart from Terminal C on flight 1434. We have one hour between flights. Will this be a problem and do we need to go through security again in Houston with connecting flights.
You do not have to go through security again. Just take the Skyway train from B to C. You have enough time.
I am traveling from SFO to Mexico City with a 60 minute layover in Houston.

Do I have to go through security again?

Is this enough time to make my flight
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on United. you have enough time.
I will be arriving in IAH from Buenos Aires on United. I have a 2 hour and 30 minute layover before I have to take a connecting flight to Boston on United.

Is this enough time to clear customs, recheck bags, go through security, and change terminals?
Yes, that is enough time.
I have a flight that lands at 7:00 and the connection flight takes off at 7:46. Says there is a terminal change. Will I make it? Flight comes in from Birmingham, AL and departs to Orange County,CA
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
Hello,
My international flight (from Sydney, Australia) arrives at IAH at 10:30am and I have a connecting flight to Miami (MIA) at 12:10pm. This gives me a 1hr 40min layover. Will I make it to my connecting flight in time?
Thanks for your help
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I’m arriving on United Expressjet airline Flight #UA 4214 at 9:00 a.m. and depart on UA 1032 at 9:35 a.m. to Panama City, Panama. Will 35 minutes be enough time to make the connection?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
On Wednesday 12/6, I land at 6:10am in Houston from Santiago and then leave Houston for LAX at 7:37am.

1) Is that enough time to make the flight?
2) Will I have to go through customs in Houston?

Thanks!
Yes, in Houston you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security and to your departure gate. you have just enough time if everything goes smoothly if both flights are on United.
On Feb. 19th 2018 I shall arrive from Corpus Christi on UA3606 (United Express), terminal B, at 3:29pm continuing on UA0880 to London Heathrow, terminal E, at 4:20pm. So I have only 51 minutes. Do I have to pick up my checked bag in terminal B or will it go straight through? Can I use the Skyway between the terminals?
You don't have to do anything with your checked bag. Just take the Skyway to E and board your flight.
