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?
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.
We have 56 minutes to catch our connection on a internal flight from Jacksonville to a international flight to London. Is this enough time assuming the first flight is on time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flight out of ORF has been changed leaving 57 minutes to catch connection. Flying in on American Eagle departing on American. Looking at airport map it seems we'll be fine, but...?
Yes, that's enough time if the first flight is on-time.
my granddaughter is flying into CLT on her way to Newport News Virginia. is it complicated or confusing to get to the proper terminal? she is nervous about finding where she needs to be to catch her next flight to Newport News
Charlotte only has one terminal. If her first flight is domestic all she has to do is follow signs from her arrival gate to her departure gate. She can find out her departure gate on or on the monitors in the terminal.
Have a flight into charlotte from montego bay. Checked one luggage. We have a 12 hour layover with aa. Will we have to pay to recheck bag or will they just do it?
If it's overnight you will have to pay to re-check your bag in the morning.
