For those that have departed the U.S. through Houston international, I have a silly question for you. First time flying international as a civilian so I am not sure what will happen with my bags once I reach Houston or who would be responsible for them. Once I depart my plane in Houston do I then need to go to the luggage collection conveyor thingamajigger and get my bag and then head off to the international terminal and once at the international terminal once again check my luggage? Or once I leave Tucson will my lugage be checked all the way through to Belize city?

Might I suggest calling your airline. They could probably answer that for you.

Time flys - have fun!

Outbound - once you check in at Tucson, youre Golden until you get to Goldson laugh

They way IAH is setup, you won't even know that you are or are not in the Int'l terminal. I've left from both. ( Term E is for arriving Int'l flights and they also use it for outbound domestics/int'l ( double set of corridors/cattle gates, so they can send you to Immigration/Customs inbound without breaching security & control) ---- too much info, I know wink

Never been on an int'l flight ( or any flight for that matter) where baagage was NOT checkesd through

When you get to Houston, you have to go thru Immig. 1st. Then they shuttle you to claim your luggage (YOU HAVE TO DO THIS - IF YOU DON'T CLAIM YOUR LUGGAGE IT WILL JUST SIT THERE FOREVER). You put them on a cart, wheel it about 10' to customs, they ask you if you have anything to claim, then wheel it about another 10' and whatever airline you are flying on will take it and see that it gets to where it needs to go. It a pain, but it doesn't really take very long once you actually grab your stuff off the carousel.

hahahaha u got it right.......but I'd only add this - after you drop the lugage run like hell to catch your flight bacause thats what 95% of the people had to do lately. Oh yeah, and they re-clear security again (take off those Tivas)

tip a few for me, since I saved some for you

If you check your bags in Tuscon, they should show up in Belize City. No need to reclaim and recheck in Houston. Have a good trip!
