Is 01h10 legal connection FRA-IAH-STL?

Hi!

First time flying Continental internationally and first time connecting through Houston. We arrive from Frankfurt to IAH at 5:50p and get the flight to STL at 7:00pm. Going through Immigration, getting the luggage and then to domestic terminal, will we make it? I am not familiar with how busy IAH can be....if this is ORD, this connection time wouldn't work.

Thanks for your insights.

The minimum connect time is 55 or 60 minutes for international to domestic at IAH. It will be tight, but it should be possible. Definitely not much time to dally after landing.

If it's bookable then it's legal. CO.com (and third party websites such as Orbitz etc.) will not display connecting flights unless the connection is legal. If you try to build segment by segment there are edits to prevent this as well.

Thanks sbm12 and COpltASgldPHX.

I'll try to see how the segment by segment goes.
