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.

Sufficient time ? Do we get the subway from TA to TD ?

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.

Thanks!
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
Hi,
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.
I'm soon buying a flight ticket from New orleans (MSY) to honolulu (HNL) and will have a connecting flight in huston. will 1h 05 min be enough time to go from gate to gate. and since I've never been to that airport before will it be a security control or is it different from domestic and international connections. or would you recommend buying the other ticket that has 3h layover?

thanks!

Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to go through security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, our flight arrives at IAH from XNA (Arkansas) at 8:34am. We depart for Cancun at 9:10. Will we have enough time to make the connection?
Yes, that is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
On 2nd Feb 2018 , I am flying in from Monterrey to Houston ETA 8.30am and catch a connecting flight to Japan at 10.30am. Is 2 hrs enough to clear customs ?
The travel arrangement is done on 1 ticket from the carrier .
If there is delays in flight or customs , will the carrier provide a rescheduled flight arrangements?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, if your flight from Monterrey is delayed you will be rebooked to Tokyo.
Thanks ZAP,

For the info , I appreciate the fast reply. I was getting worried about the transit time
