    I will be flying on American on a Friday arriving from Turks and Caicos to Charlotte at 6:50p departing on American at 7:55p to Chicago, will I need to go through customs in Charlotte and will I be able to make that connection? First time flying international, can you please tell me what all I will need to do?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. 65 minutes is nearly impossible unless the flight from Turks and Caicos is quite early.

    I will be flying from turks and caicos to o'hare with a layover of 1hr5min in charlotte on american airlines, will I have to go through customs in charlotte and will that be enough time, had longer layover but aa just changed flight times.


    That's really difficult. CLT isn't usually too bad, but 65 minutes is really short.

    flight lands in char at 5:15 I have a 6:25 connection to London ... is that enough time? Where would I pass thru customes if not in Atl


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through UK Immigration and Customs in London. All you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I land at 10:48 AM gate C17 and depart at 11:45 AM at gate E25. Will this be enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Walking between gates shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

    I arrive at CLT at gate E18 at 1:54. My connecting flight is at gate C13 at 2:30. Will I be able to make it in time? I am 73 so I won't be running!


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time but doesn't leave much to spare.

    I will be travelling back from Barcelona in May and connecxting thru Charlotte. The flight I am looking at only has a 2 hour layover before my last flight option home that evening. Will 2 hours be enough to clear and get us to our short flight to Louisville with checked luggage?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 2 hr 20 Min layover in CLT from St Lucia
    Feb 19, 2017
    I'm looking to book a trip to St. Lucia. The return flight option gives my a 2 hour and 20 minute layover in CLT before I head to Houston on American Airlines. Will this be enough time to clear customs and get my bags rechecked?


    Yes, that is enough time.

    Hello, proposing to fly into Charlotte from Nashville and then onto Sarasota. Will I have to collect my bags and re check them or are they transferred to my next flight


    No, if both flights are on American all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    You don't have to expedite. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I will be traveling with a 4 month old. I will have her in a carrier in the front of me with a carseat in in a gate check bag on my back. two carry one bags and a baby bag. I will be coming into gate b15 and need to make it to gate e35 in 40 prefer 30 mins by what the airport says. will I have enough time? also will a cart be able to assist me.


    Check your carseat at the check-in desk (you won't be charged) so you don't have to carry it between flights (unless you're really worried about it missing the connection). The electric carts are for handicapped people.


    You can bring the carrier with you. If you can detach the car seat, TSA will just run it through the X-ray machine while you walk through the metal detector with your baby. If it doesn't detach that's fine, they'll just do a quick test on the car seat and you'll be on your way. Another tip is to take out any bottles, milk, formula and place them in the bin to be scanned. It makes it easier for them to identify the liquids and cuts down on the possibility of your bag having to be stopped and checked. Depending on the airline they do offer carts but that mostly used for the disabled or elderly. CLT isn't that big of an airport so you'd have plenty of time to get to your gate.

    On American, I fly from St Louis to CLT, with a layover of 1 hr 20 min before a connecting flight to Turks and Caicos. Will that be enough time? Returning, I fly from Turks to CLT, with a layover of 1 hr 42 min before the connecting flight to St Louis. Will that be enough time to clear US Immigration, security, baggage lines, etc.


    Yes, that is enough time both ways. On the way to Turks and Caicos all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 48 min layyover

    Flying from MSY to Cozumel with connecting flight in CLT with only 48 minute layover. Do you think this is enough time? Also, both flights are with AA, will they take care of my checked luggage for the connecting flight?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do on your way to Cozumel is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate - nothing with your checked bags.
