United Airlines has big plans for Terminal B at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). Earlier in the year, the airline announced its plans to renovate Terminal B at the airport, giving the aging building a more modern touch and even adjusting gates and equipment to accommodate larger airplanes.
