OOPS....we flew American.
I have read that Continental is very high on the list of missed flights, time changes and layovers. We flew with them this summer and did find this to happen. We had a good price tho, through
Sometimes money=time or vice versa.

I just returned from flying with Continental thru Houston and Milwaukee. All flights were on time. No long lines. I found much fewer people in the airports.
The most hassle I got was leaving my own little International airport, got searched twice, even my checked suitcase. Leaving Milwaukee they only gave me the all over body wand. They will ask you if the wand beeps, may I touch you at that spot. LOL
When my underwire bra beeped, I just gave him a hard look, and he did not touch. LOL
After the hassle in my airport, I got over my anxiety about my first flight since 9/11.
Traded one emotion for another. I had a great trip.

I must say the guy with continential was very nice. I plan on writting a letter to his superviser because he was doing everything in his power to help us and not make things hard. I got it all straightened out. I was more upset about the fact that no one called me. I felt that if they were going to change my flights at least they could have called. I am just trying to get 9 people to belize! I think a night in houston may be fun. How close to the city is the airport, anyone know? Like someone said before, it all part of the adventure!

I just got an itinerary from my travel agent, and the trip home is the same we have had before... leave BZE at 5p and arrive in Portland at midnight. However, getting there, we used to take a 6 a.m. flight. We now take a red-eye -- leaving at midnight and getting into BZE at 11:30 a.m. Hey! I can take getting to Belize earlier in the day! We used to get there about 4 p.m. or so.

yoo hoo!

polargirl, why not overnight in Calgary on your way down, instead of Houston? (unless Continental is picking up the tab but maybe they will anyway, Cdn $ being a better deal) Catch the 7:00 a.m.ish flight to Houston and then to Belize City. I don't think that schedule has changed much. You still get to BZ City around 3:30.

Are you form MKE or the surrounding area? I'm flying out of MKE on Continental in late February (1st timer), but while the flights times have changed, it's only been very slightly and in our favor even!

I just thought that I would mention that an hour in Houston is going to be really hard to manage a connection. When we were flying back we had two hours to make our connection, so we weren't worried. However, we didn't consider the fact that you have to go through customs upon entering the United States. You have to reclaim your luggage, go through customs and recheck your luggage. This process took an hour! We barely made our connection.
