American Airlines offers me a flight from Kansas City to NYC-LaGuardia via a connection at CLT, only 35 min for the connection. I guess it should be time enough if the company offers but could somebody confirm or not? Travelling with two kids (7 and 10 yerars old) Thanx
It's possible but it's pretty risky. I wouldn't try it, especially with kids.
We are landing at 6:54 am and our connecting flight is leaving for San Fran at 7:30am. Will we make it? Has anyone ever had to make this connection before?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Atlanta is on-time.
Once through customs, is there a desk where you recheck luggage rather than go to AA main checkin desk.
Yes, there is.
Thanks for the info. I take it that 3 hours at Charlotte is plenty of time to clear everything before my flight to Norfolk?
Flying from Turks and Caicos (ending Sat of Spring Break) arrive CLT at 4:50p and leave on next flight at 6:05p is this enough time to clear customs??!
That will be very difficult.
We are flying from Madrid to JFK with a connection in CLT. We have a 5 hour layover. Would we have to get our luggage and go thru customs and then go thru TSA again to board our flight to JFK? Would we have to A). Re check our luggage B) Have time leave the airport and go eat BBQ at the place just outside the airprt?
Yes, you have to claim your bags to go through US Customs then re-check it. The Brookfield Farms BBQ restaurant is actually inside the airport. There are no restaurants just outside the airport.
We are arriving from DR at 6:12 pm and depart to DFW at 7:45. Will this be enough time to clear customs? AA changed out flight after it was booked.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, I will be flying into Charlotte from Vegas to catch a connecting flight to Cancun. Is 1 hour and 15 minutes enough time to transfer?
Yes, that's plenty of time. All you have to do in Charlotte on the way to Cancun is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

Will i have enough time. Will i have to run. If i need a cart to drive me how do i set that up so i make my connection
You need to call American and request wheelchair assistance.
Arriving Gate C6 at 4:59 and connecting flight is gate B8 at 5:45. Will I have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
hi im flying into charlotte from heathrow and am unsure whether my luggage automatically gets put on to my next flight to orlando and what is the process when checking in for onward flight both are with AA
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.
