KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Houston.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Houston is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Houston with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Houston up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.

Pros: "Movie selection. Flight attendants very polite and friendly and helpful. Roomy upstairs with room to stretch and stand."
Cons: "Poor wine selection (one red one white) Flight attendants overserved alcohol to passenger in my area to point of slurring and not walking off plane. Food..bread hard and poor."
Cons: "First flight was delayed too much for me to make a connecting flight to Frankfurt. Had to ask twice to be rebooked. Had to connect through Chicago O'Hare and walk for miles there. Arrived in Germany 3 hours behind schedule."
Cons: "No volume on entertainment system for our row. But the crew were excellent - very professional, courteous and apologetic."
Cons: "Very poor connecting flight information for check in. United connecting flight through Lufthansa has no information. Have to ask around airport and nobody seems to know exactly when United will open for checkin. Discover next morning it is only 2 hrs before flight, 1.5 hrs before boarding. Lufthansa made no effort to pass along their connecting flight information, they just drop all responsibility and say it is a United flight so offer no help. First and last time with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew nice. Plenty of food"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic. Very long lines and not managed well"
Pros: "Telling you you're stupid"
Cons: "getting too many emails about a flight that I've never took"
Cons: "Same reason as above."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. And the food was very good."
Pros: "Crew, condition of planes, food all excellent"
Cons: "Connection at Frankfurt bad. Had to be unloaded from plane and put on buses and dumped at terminal. Extra 25 minutes plus customs and ran to make connecting international flight. They have a HUGE opportunity for improvement in the way they move people in Airport."
Pros: "Same as a above"
Pros: "I have always wanted to travel with Lufthansa and will do so in future too. For my wife it was her first and she loved it."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "I got 2 vegetarian meals on this flight. The first one was so mushy that it induced my gag reflex. I managed one bite and no more. The second meal had some ravioli that was much better but still was heated unevenly. But at that point I was so hungry that I ate it anyway. The boarding was chaotic because all economy rows boarded at the same time"
Pros: "nice personality"
Pros: "La tripulación muy amable y la comida muy buena ."
Pros: "Great A380 aircraft"
Pros: "Most all was good."
Cons: "The kids screaming!"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped. A little about my height, I'm 5'2" and had a difficult time with no leg room. I sat by the window which gave me a little more wiggle room but it was not the most comfortable flight. Also a note about being able to get up from the seat to move about. The other person in the row had to get up to allow me in and out and I still had to make sure not to pull on the seat in front of me just trying to get up out of the seat. Thankfully, I only had to get out twice through the whole flight."
Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."
Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."
Pros: "With German precision the crew worked the area. When I started to feel hungry they came with food. When I was getting thirsty, they delivered beverages. Overall, I liked Lufthansa and I would recommend them to others."
Cons: "There was an obstruction in the way of where my feet would go. I was on the aisle and the guy at the window seat had the same problem. Luckily, we had no one seated between us. We basically did the unspoken and we shared the foot space of the vacant middle seat."
Pros: "The on-board crew could not have been better......their professionalism, service, attentiveness was the best that I have experience in Economy class travel. The plane was clean, the toilets were nice throughout the flight. The seats were comfortable and noticeably wider than some other carriers offer. The food was MUCH better on Lufthansa flights that originate in Europe than flights that originate in the US. I will definitely fly again."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, I have never, even in India, experienced less organization of a boarding process. Actually, there were no lines, just a crowd of passengers pushing and shoving towards two gates. This was made worse by the occasional golf cart trying to move thru this throng of passengers. Most dangerous was that the flow of passengers down the escalators was not regulated, when I reached the bottom of the escalator there was no place to go, I was pushed awkwardly to the side by passengers piling up behind me. I am 67 years old, and found this very unsafe to my self and others. I hope that no injuries occurred."
Pros: "Just much more professional than US carriers... Also much more leg room in economy class then most US carriers"
Pros: "Lufthanza is very bad with customer service. They have a NO COMMUNICATION POLICY. Tell the customer nothing. Leave them in the dark."
Cons: "no announcements about a flight that did't occur for one hour later"
Cons: "I will never gonna buy a ticket here again because didn't even take me i lost all my money"
Pros: "Very efficient service! Debarkation at MUC very fast and efficient for making it easy for connections to other flights. Nice crew!"
Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The controls on movie screen did not respond to touch very well."
Cons: "I did nt like the food offered."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "Seats, The website would not let me upgrade to premium seats. I am also a Gold Star Alliance member and thought that I should have been able to have the Premium seating available, especially since there were vacant seating. But it was a great flight. The best airline flight I have had so far."
Pros: "The food was very good, as well as the crew"
Cons: "The assistant to the handicap people is very poor l missed my flight from Frankfurt to Cairo because of the poor assistance it took them for ever to transfer me to my connection although I letting them know the timing of my flight"
Pros: "the ease of booking the trip"
Cons: "The fact that my mother suffered a major medical episode which lead to her being hospitalized for six days in Germany has left me very bitter regarding our flight. I have flown Lufthansa before in the past and AWAYS had a wonderful experience. However, I have NOTHING good to say regarding Lufthansa/KAYAK/Vaymara regarding your missed flight/re-booking policy, nor working with anyone who speaks anything other than broken English at best. If it had been possible my mother and I would have completed the flight from Frankfurt to Houston on 5/15/16; however, my mother's medical condition precluded that from happening. I submitted hospital admission paperwork which I was told that the airline was requesting that I needed to get the forms in English. REALLY???? We were in Germany; the hospital admission and discharge paperwork are in German. Lufthansa is a German - based airline. Nobody speaks or can read German? The hospital did not offer an option of English paperwork and I could pay for translating the paperwork for a price and it would take a couple of weeks.. I had to re-book through another carrier after receiving clearance and a certificate that my mother was medically cleared to fly. The price was ridiculously high but I had no other option since your representative told me it would take 4-6 weeks to reach a decision. Thank you so VERY much for inquiring in to my satisfaction on flight from Frankfurt to Houston Intercontinental on Lufthansa. As you can tell....it was quite the experience."
Pros: "Flight on time, overall good."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive in San Francisco which believe the problem started at the Malta airport. I was booked in as a stand by according to staff at SFO. I had booked my flight in Jan. with a seat assignment confirmed so not sure why I was booked in as a stand by passenger. Bag arrived to my home the day after I arrived home. Overall, good flight."
Pros: "Frequent food and beverage service, plus 2 hot towel offerings."
Cons: "My headphones stopped working 1 hour into the flight, so I just watched movies with subtitles. No air vents, so it was really warm. I'm only 5'2" and felt really cramped in the seats."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and kind . Really makes a difference"
Cons: "No new release movies , tv shows were also not good choices."
Pros: "Crew were attentive and the plane is always a great one to fly"
Cons: "Boarding was a joke as it's really bad add there is no real order and business class queue doesn't seem to have business people boarding but everyone"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Plenty of room. Amazing Service. Very helpful, kind flight attendants. I was in economy but felt like I was flying in Business Class the entire flight."
