IAH - International connection time?

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at a Continental flight from Vancouver, BC to Panama City at the beginning of August. I'd have 1hr2mins for my connection in Houston, approximately between 2 and 3pm. Just going on what I've found online: I think my baggage would be sent through without me having to pick it up in transit, AND there is a somewhat shorter international transfer line in immigration, two points in my favour (if that information is correct...?).

I'm also told all international Continental flights operate in and out of terminal E, so I will only be in that terminal. I think? Also helpful, if true.

I will have my two children with me - they are 8 and 4. Ie: I'm probably not going to be able to leg it! Though that might be moot because how much can one leg it when standing in various queues?

Is it long enough? I mean, one would hope that the airline wouldn't offer it up as an option if it weren't physically possible to make it, but then again....! I thought fellow travellers might give me a more realistic opinion. My other flight options all involve a less hurried transfer, but in the middle of the night with two exhausted children - not ideal. So, if I can make this transfer or not is kind of a deal-breaker as far as this trip goes!
