Navigating IAH

Question about getting around IAH before departure: Rather than do the bag drop and navigate the security lines at Continental's C terminal, is it faster to do this in the international terminal (E) and then simply walk to the C-gates on the other side of security?
Thanks in advance for your input.

Better yet, go through the B terminal and take the tram to C.

I don't think that it would be any faster. I have seen long lines at E and especially at B. It is nicer to transit through E than the other two however. Your domestic flight might actually leave out of E (as was the case for me just this week), so set a trip alert to let you know.

Depends on when you're leaving...

Early morning, I'd go with E and walk to C. Afternoon, it's a crapshoot either way.

C is a nightmare for check-in but they're working on it. Last couple of times through everything moved pretty well. I'll report more after my trip next week to SFO.

Thanks all for the replies. Looking forward to the updates.

(IAH was busy tonite... Friday rush-hour plus afternoon T-storms...)
