We are flying from Des Moines to IAH with a 45 min. Connection to Liberia Costa Rica. If on time, is this even possible with carry-on luggage? And do we have to go through another check-in before boarding internatl?
This is is possible. You don't have to go through any checks in Houston. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
The first flight is on United but the second flight from IAH to Toronto is listed as a United flight but operated by AIr Canada. Will my bags be check through or will we have to collect them and recheck with Air Canada and if so will we have enough time with a 2 hr layover.
Since it's a connection between two separate airlines you may have to collect your bags, regardless, you should have enough time.
If arriving on American from Cancun; and then departing on Spirit an hour and ten min later? I am not sure what gate American arrives...from Cancun and if that is enough time or I need to allow another hour or two?
No, that's completely impossible. You need at least 2.5 hours if you have checked bags. Also, American doesn't fly from Cancun to Houston, so please double check whatever you are looking at.
No checked bags; and it's a connecting flight to CUN through DFW...actually. Thanks!
At DFW, you'd need at least 2 hours, even without checked bags since you will have to take a shuttle bus between terminals.
We are flying from Toronto to Auckland with a connection in Houston but only have a 75 minute layover, is that enough time to make our connection to Auckland?
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.
