I've seen pictures of Air France planes in Houston before IAH opened. I think I've seen propeller driven AF planes at Hobby dating from the late fifties or early sixties.
Also, I think its obvious that the lengthy KLM service is due to Shell's lengthy presence in Houston. There may have even been joint ownership of Royal Dutch Shell and Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM) at one time.
Lufthansa is a relatively new arrival: late eighties or early nineties.

In addition to the aforementioned, Air Jamaica, AeroMexico, Aviateca, Cayman Airways, Grupo TACA, and Air Canada, as well as one other Mexican carrier (Aeroliteral?) service IAH. In the past IAH has seen South African Airways and Gulf Air, and I think Copa.

Do Cargo Carriers Count? Cargolux flies there. I was flying through houston Class B at night on the 24th of this month in a 172 and passed pretty close to a cargolux 747......I thought it was a pretty cool airplane.
