  • Connection time at CLT
    Jan 17, 2017
    Arriving at CLT Terminal B at 1:58, with connecting flight from Terminal E at 2:40. Is that feasible?


    Charlotte only has one terminal. B and E are concourses. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    If I only have just over a hour in CTL arriving from SXM on an international flight and do not make it to my next flight? Will AA place me on another later flight availability permitting or will I be forced to buy another ticket?


    If you miss your connection due to a delay then you will be rebooked free of charge on the next available flight to your destination as long as they are both on the same reservation.

    On average, how long does it take to pass through customs in Charlotte? Looking at connecting flight times.


    You need a minimum of 90 minutes for an International to domestic connection in Charlotte, 2 hours would be better.

    We are arriving in Clt at 10:16 at terminal B. We have one hour and 10 minutes to connect to our flight to Costa Rica in terminal D. Is that enough time?


    Yes, if your first flight is domestic all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. B and D are concourses, not terminals.


  • Enough time for connection

    My arrival gate is E5 and I have a 30 minute layover and have to get to B3 will I have enough time.


    You will have to hope your first flight is on-time and run.


  • enough time?
    Jan 9, 2017
    arriving at E17 @ 3:41 PM and departing from B10 @ 4:19 pm--do i have enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time and you move quickly.

    Hi! I'm arriving on sunday evening from CUN with AA886 and connecting with AA732 to LHR. I have 1 hrs 40 mins between the flights. Is it enough to go trough customs and pre-check my baggages? Thank you!


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Do I have to run or can I walk normally and do I have time wait trough the lines, or do I have to bypass? And is the sunday busy day at CLT at 6PM -21 PM


    Yes, you have to wait in lines. It will be moderately busy but Charlotte runs pretty smoothly usually. You will have to hurry.


  • E32 to C6

    Charlotte airport terminal E32 to C6, how long to allow for connecting flight? Really hate that E terminal!


    I'd want 45 minutes at least.


  • Making 2nd flight
    Jan 4, 2017
    Arriving gate E9 at 12:30...connecting to LGA on flight scheduled at gate C37 at 1:07. No carry-ons to collect or check. How likely is it we'll make it onto that next flight, and is our luggage likely to make it as well?


    It's difficult and depends on the first flight being on-time, but it's not impossible.


  • Connecting from ORD thru CLT on to SXM!!
    Jan 4, 2017
    We are arriving from ORD at 8:28 am, departing at 9:30 am to SXM. Both American flights, will we have enough time to make our connection and do we have to go through customs or do anything special?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Gates E2 and E35
    Dec 28, 2016
    How long a walk to connect from arrival at E2 to To a E35 connection ?u


    It should be less than 10 minutes if you can walk quickly.


  • Is 2 hrs good for clearing immigration and catching connecting flight?
    Jan 9, 2017
    I am travelling to Memphis via CLT. Arriving from London at 14:10 and connecting flight to Memphis at 16:10. Is 2 hrs good for clearing immigration and catching the connecting flight? Both flights are on American Airlines.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Flying AA also, coming into Clt from fra. Will I have to go through customs and recheck my bags before boarding AA again?

    Dec 21, 2016
    Can I reach Bojangles at B6 from arriving at gate D10 without going through security? I've been out of the country for a few years now and I'm not sure if Bojos will be open on Christmas. Cheers!


    Yes, all gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


    however, if you're arriving on an International flight you have to go straight to US Immigration and Customs, you can't go to restaurants.


  • Minimum Connection Time
    Dec 20, 2016
    What would be the minimum domestic time that is reasonable if all things run on time...That being said...our layover with American would be 42 minutes...If there is a delay, assume American will make it right if we fail to make the connection?


    On that flight too smh. Stuck with this loud 5 year old until 230, what about you?


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time and domestic. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security. Yes, you would be rebooked on the next available flight, but depending on where you're going, that could be awhile.


  • Liberia, Costa Rica >> CLT >> JFK
    Dec 16, 2016
    I'll be going on a short trip to Costa rica, on my way back, I arrive from Liberia, Costa rica into CLT at 8:48 PM on American Airlines and my connecting flight to JFK on American Airlines is at 10:09 PM. Which gives me roughly 80 Minutes to pass through customs and TSA re-check in. Considering it it's in the evening, is this doable? We will only have carry-ons and will not be bringing with us anything that will slow us down (liquor, foods, etc)


    With only carry-ons I think that is possible if the flight from Costa Rica is on-time.
