Hi, we are landing at Charlotte Douglas from Heathrow at 15.05 with a connecting flight to Orlando at 16.30. will this give us enough time to get through U.S immigration and passport control? Thanks.
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi we are a family travelling from Australia. I've booked a flight through AA from Orlando to LA and it stops in Charlotte. I've just received notification of a flight time change and am worried we will not have enough to get the connecting flight to LA. Our AA flight 1859 from Orlando arrives in Charlotte at 3.45pm 5th December and the connecting flight to LA is flight AA 0678 at 4.20pm. Will we have enought time to get to the other gate to get the other flight?
That should be enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time.
I will be flying in on American Flt 5368 at 12:25. I have to make a connection to American Flt 1808 at 1:00. How can I make sure I don't miss it? I won't be picking up luggage.
Sit as far towards the front of flight 5368 as you can and move as quickly as you can to your departure gate. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security, so it's really not any more complex than just moving as fast as you can.
Arriving on AA flight 648 at 10:10AM and departing on VIA Air flight 1180 at 11:01AM. Do I have sufficient time to make connection?
With no checked bags that's possible. With checked bags it will be very difficult to get to the Via Air check-in desk in time.
Thank you!
My plane arrives at 6:57am at Gate E38a. And my connection flight leaves at 7:35am at Gate B10. Will I have enough time to make it? Is there a number I can call when I get there just to let them know I'm at the airport?
They know when your flight arrives and that you are coming, there is no need and in fact no way to call them. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Will an hour be enough time to go from Concourse B to Concourse D? how long a walk is it? My husband has a difficult time walking fast.
Yes, that is plenty of time. Even at a slow pace you can do it in 15-20 minutes.
Hi there,

I am planning to fly with AA from Birmingham, ALB (BHM) via Charlotte (CLT) to Nassau, Bahamas (NAS). Connecting time on this itinary is 56 minutes in CLT before boarding the international flight to Nassau.

Is there any special procedure (interview by security about your luggage, etc.) that can slow one down during the transfer or are flights from the US to the Bahamas treated similar as "domestic" flights? To sum it up, are 56 minutes enough to make it?

Thanks a lot.
There is no special security or US Customs when leaving the US (to any country other than Israel). All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time if the first flight is on-time.
We will be arriving on american airlines at 11:43 and are connecting with an American airlines flight to aruba that leaves at 11:30.... is that enough time if we check in online that morning.
That should be 10:43. 😁
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.
I will arrive from Frankfurt Germany with AA with a connecting flight to Little Rock. after going through immigration, customs eg, do you have special baggage re-check counters for the connecting flight?
Yes, there are baggage re-check desks right after you clear customs.
Thanks you!
American lists a flight from PHL to CHS via CLT with only 32m to connect. What's the chance of making that? Will they hold the flight for connecting passangers? The nonstop flights from PHL to CLT on AA are stupidly expensive, like 4x higher than going through CLT. Thanks!
They will not hold the flight for you, however, it's possible if the first flight is on-time.
