I've been flying from Calgary, Canada, to San Jose, Costa Rica through Houston. It's always very tight making the connector on the way back because of needing to go through US customs just to get on the Hou-Cgy flight. Always a VERY long/slow line and then you need to go back through security before racing to the next terminal.
I was reading older posts and someone said something about: if needing help with connecting flights to speak with one of the representatives waiting at the gate - because when you exit, you are directed towards the secure corridor and not through the boarding gate.
Is this right? It would save tons of time and even more stress. I've almost contemplated flying an extra 3 hours to Eastern Canada just to avoid this in Houston. Any tips? Please and thank you!
