    If you have a long layover between flights, Head over to E-5 in United's beautiful international terminal. The view is outstanding. You can watch aircraft depart three different runways from this here

    If you are arriving on an international flight be sure you plan plenty of time if you are connecting in Houston. Long lines in immigration and customs take a very long time to process through.

    If it's your first time driving in there to drop/pick-up, lay out your strategic battle plan beforehand, or risk being forever lost in this concrete Charlie Foxtrot of roads and sudden passageways.

    Pedestrian travelers beware the fleet of high-speed transport vehicles barreling haphazardly through the terminal. "To your left! To the right! In the middle!" It's like a game of Frogger out there.

    It's a big airport with free wifi! Terminal E has the best food spots like CatCora's, Cinnabon, sushi place, Pappasito's cantina and many others! It also has nice stores and a large seating area

    Relax @ le grand comptoir: my husband thinks the food is ropey & the wine is pedestrian, but I think the atmosphere & wine are lovely! Have a glass of sparkling to feel like royalty before you fly!

    Amazingly smooth US Customs check in via new kiosks, that scan your passports, ask you the questions, take your photo then print your form, advance to the customs officer and pass through!

    If you're waiting for your flight around the C-43ish gate area, you NEED to go to UpperCrest. They have the BEST fresh baguette sandwiches. No lie. Seriously wish they had one where I lived!

    Between Terminal C & E there is a food court. In the back, you'll find Pappasitos where you can get AWESOME breakfast and fajitas later in the day. Highly recommend--real local Tex-Mex.

    Very clean, open, and bright atmosphere. I always like coming through this airport and getting a coffee and a copy of the New York Times at Starbuck before stepping on the plane.

    If you're in Terminal A get a shoeshine from Clifford. He will deliver one of the best shoeshines you'll ever get, but an even better conversation. Don't forget the tip.

    Flew United and was a big fan of all the food and beverage options in Terminal 3. There's a great little sushi spot in the older part of the Terminal near the C Gates.

    Good airport, friendly staff. United lounge by gate C is great. From the UK watch out if you need to take money out as the ATMs aren't compatible with UK chip and pin cards.

    If you have time go check out Pappadeux's Seafood in Terminal E. Killer Cajun fare, with a great lunch Buffett from 10-3pm.

    Huge Airport but very organized, make sure you wear comfortable shoes. 23 miles north of Downtown Houston. The largest hub for United Airlines.

    When you check in at terminal C for United/ Continental flights you will most likely have to take the airport train to go to terminal B. Make sure to leave extra time for check in and transportation!

    Still one of my favorite connection airports. Much easier to maneuver than Atlanta or Charlotte. One of 4 airports that Baton Rouge connects in and out of.

    Plenty of good restaurants and stores in Terminal E. If you have a long layover between flights, worth taking the tram to Terminal E to check it out (if you're not flying out of Terminal E already).

    If Flying with united - come early - long lines even at 5am. Kiosk check in only for those who travel with carry on only. Of traveling domestic - use curbside: less people and faster check in.

    The Real Food Company in Terminal C is some of the best Airport food we've ever had! Lots of fresh, hot selections. Try the Monte Cristo grilled sandwich!

    In case you are desperate for nail polish, there is an Essie vending machine at terminal C, 33A. There's also Benefit cosmetics and Kindle machines.

    In terminal b they don't use the PA system. Get to your gate early and stand as close to the door as possible if you don't want to miss your flight. Also, united overbooked every flight.

    If you want a quiet space to work or just get away from the throngs of people, the D Concourse seems to be ideal. Especially D1

    If you're connecting from abroad and have Pre-check/Global Entry, skip the security lines by exiting to the left of the connecting bag area and taking the elevator up to the precheck line.

    It's like a long International boarding process regardless for every size aircraft or destination. I can swear I think United must had hired Southwest to implement their cattle call experience...LOL

    Expansive international airport in Houston. Can be very busy. Houston Hobby is a much faster airport in comparison. Southwest doesn't hub here.

    So your flight is delayed, you are beat down, hot, tired and a shower sounds like a god send. Good news showers are available at the United Club in E terminal. The $50 fee for non members is worth it.

    If departing out of concourse C and running late, go through the E concourse instead. There is almost never a wait and has saved me today and other days. Once through security take tram or walk to C.

    For such a busy airport, IAH is pretty efficient. I don't check bags and like to get picked up at passenger drop-off to save a little time and mix things up a bit!

    Arrived at 9:30pm and all restaurants and food cafes were shutting down. There was only one food stand in terminal B with wraps and a McDonalds. Of course our choice was to get the wraps!

    If you are using Super Shuttle, check in as quickly as you can. They put you in queue for a driver and it can take as long as 30 mins. Trust me, I learned from sad experience.
