Trip Report Report on connection time at Houston Bush Int'l - TIGHT!

I see people often asking about connection time at different airports and thought I would share my recent experience flying from Acapulco, Mexico to Boston via Houston.

Our flight from Acapulco landed, on time, at 5:50 PM on Sunday. Our 7:10 PM flight to Boston (in a different terminal) was to board at 6:35 PM.

We both had carryon luggage only and we did not get to our gate until 6:45 PM. So, we BARELY made it. The lines were quite long but pretty fast moving. Still, making it involved some aggressive walking with bags and taking advantage of extra lines that opened up going through customs. We did not have time to stop for a bathroom break, let alone a sandwich. Thankfully, CO still serves meals on their flights (hear this will change by Fall 2010).

Otherwise, our four flights on continental were delightful and we are thinking of making them one of our preferred airlines. We like to fly to Mexico and Asia so they seem like a good bet. We also have miles on American.

At no point did I see anyone from Continental to ask for help. Had we not had green cards/US passports, or had we had checked baggage, we probably would not have made it unless Continental intervened and held the plan.
