  • From SDF to Grand Cayman with layover in CLT
    Sep 9, 2016
    We are flying from Louisville to Grand Cayman on a Sunday. Flight leaves Louisville at 9:20 with expected arrival of 10:57 and 36 minute layover in CLT and flight leaving for Cayman at 11:30. We're flying American Airlines. Should go from terminal E to D. Does this give us enough time to make our flight before they close the doors before departure? We are checking one bag and carrying on all others. Is this also enough time for our bags to make it to the next flight as well? We are flying AA for both flights. Also, is there a chance that since we're flying AA for both that if the flight leaving for Grand Cayman knew they had passengers coming from another AA flight would they wait a few minutes longer if not everyone has made it yet?


    Charlotte only has one Terminal. E and D are just concourses. They usually don't hold flights. You have enough time but obviously only if the flight from Louisville is on-time.

    Sep 7, 2016
    I will be arriving to CLT from Miami on September 18 (Sunday) at 8:37am and I my connection to Los Angeles will be departing at 9:30am which is only one hour later. All are American Airlines flights. Is it enough time to make it even if I have checked luggage? Is my luggage going to make it with me?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • what gates do I arrive and leave from and are gates close

    Arrive on American at CLT from LEX at 10:53 am and leave for BOS at 11:30am, Can you please tell me what gate at CLT I will be arriving at and what gate I will leave from and how far are they from each other?


    You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight.


  • Connection in Charlotte
    Sep 6, 2016
    I will be returning to the UK, flying from Louisville, connecting in Charlotte for my flight to London, both on AA. I only have a 55 minute connection time, will this be enough time. Will I go straight to the gate or will I gave to reclaim and recheck in luggage / customs etc?


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.


  • 1 hr and 10 mins between AA flights
    Oct 20, 2016
    I received a notice saying my flight from Tampa to CLT would be an hour later than planned. This only gives me one hour to connect to my 2nd AA flight to St. Maarten. Have to check luggage. 1. Is that enough time to make my connection? It is in early December, early morning flight. 2. Would my luggage be put on my connecting flight? What are chances that this wouldn't happen in time? What would happen if my luggage didn't get there? Would AA put it on a later flight and I'd have to get it at the airport in SXM?? Thanks


    If both flights are on AA on the same reservation you do not have to do anything with your bags in Charlotte on your way to St. Maarten.


    B3 to C9 how much time will that take??


  • how far are the terminals from one another?
    Sep 5, 2016
    I have a flight from Denver to Charlotte / then from Charlotte to Paris. The layover is 1 hour. I was told when I booked my flight that this would be enough time to get from one terminal to another. Is it?


    Charlotte only has one Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    It has one terminal but 5 concourses. It should be enough time to use the bathroom and get to another concourse if you have to.


  • SFO to CHS VIA CLT - checked baggage
    Sep 1, 2016
    I have a 35 minute layover between AAL1702 landing and AAL5318 departing. I have checked baggage as I was international from SFO. Whats the likelyhood of my bags making it to my next plan in CLT?


    If the flight from SFO is on-time you have a chance.


  • Cutting it close
    Aug 31, 2016
    Sept 06 I have an AA flight from Phoenix connecting in Charlotte to another American flight to Harrisburg. I have only 35 minute connection time. Not checking any luggage, only carryon. Am I okay?


    It's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. It obviously leaves no time to spare if there are delays.


  • Connecting in CLT
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have a flight on AA arriving on Saturday 10/8 at 4:35 pm, coming from Cancun. Our flight to Chicago leaves at 5:57 pm. Will there be enough time to clear customs and make the flight? Carry on baggage only.


    With carry-ons that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying from CLT to ATL to Bogota. Do I check in at the regular Delta counter?AND I only have 50 minutes in ATL before my flight to BOG. Will I make it?


    There is only one Delta counter in Charlotte. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Charlotte is on-time.


  • Wiil I make it?
    Aug 29, 2016
    35 minutes to get from B11 to E31? Is it possible?


    It's possible but leaves no time to spare.

    Hi I'm flying from London heathrow to Charlotte and then onto Las Vegas. My flights are with American Airlines - I have a stop over of 1 hour 45 mins will I make the connection. Will I have to collect my bags and check in again and will I have to go through passport control thanks


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Sufficient Layover Time?
    Aug 25, 2016
    Traveling Monday Sept 12 from TPA to CLT to CDG. Published layover time in CLT is 1hr 2min. Is this sufficient?


    Yes, all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you.


  • Enough time!
    Aug 25, 2016
    Traveling from YUL to CLT and then GCM with a 1:25 lawover. Will it be enough?


    *layover =)


    Yes, that is enough time. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Charlotte on your way to Grand Cayman is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.




  • Clearing Customs
    Aug 24, 2016
    Hi, I am a US citizen, flying American from Costa Rica to Boston, with a layover in Charlotte. Will 1 hour 26 minutes be enough to clear customs and recheck my bags for my connecting flight?


    That's slightly below the recommended minimum International to Domestic connection time in Charlotte. You may make it, but be prepared to miss your connection.
