  • Transfer from Cancun to London
    Jun 28, 2016
    Hi, Friday 24. June we arrive at Charlotte from Cancun 18.40, and our flight to London is at 20.20. Will this be enough time? Thanks


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    You may have to pass through CBP which can take a good amount of time. You may have to wait in line to speak to an agent. You will also have to declare any single thing you brought back, although you will likely have lax regulations coming from Cancun. Factor in taxiing on the runway and apron. Also, gathering things and waiting to get off of the plane.


  • international connection time

    my 16yr old grandson will be flying from Tampa to Dublin via CLT with a 56 minute layover is this too tight for an inexperienced traveler on an international flight?


    Yes, that is enough time. All he has to do in charlotte is walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate.


  • 38 minutes enough time?
    Jun 15, 2016
    I'm arriving 6:52am from CHS connecting at 7:30am to SFO. Is this enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Charleston is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you very much!

    I have 1:35 minute delay from MBJ (Jamaica) into CLT. Is this enough time to make my connection?


    Its an afternoon flight on a Monday if that helps...


    You mean you have 1 hr 35 minutes to make your connection? That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connection Time

    Will a connection time of 45 minutes be sufficient ? I travel from Gainesville, Florida to Lubbock, Texas.


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


  • Will we make connecting flight?
    Jun 13, 2016
    We fly into CLT from Cancun tomorrow at 6:40, will we have enough to time to get off plane, customs, security, etc and make connecting flight in one hour? Called customer service, they said yes....


    I really doubt that's enough time. Prepare to spend the night at CLT if there isn't a later flight to your destination.


  • Quick connection advice thanks

    Hello returning from my US trip from San Antonio to Toronto at the end , looking at a flight with a 43 minute minute connection with American what is the scene like there do I just need to walk a little bit to the next gate or pass security again ? Thanks from 9:27-10:10 PM


    You just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • 53 min layover
    Jun 8, 2016
    Hi, I have a layover in CLT going to CANCUN from ATL. It's a 53 min layover (we get in at like 6:50 AM) and I see I land in Concourse C, but depart form Concourse B. I was curious if this is enough time to get over there? Wanted to make sure it wasn't like our airport in ATL where you have to get on a train and all that stuff. Thanks!


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • How much time needed
    Jun 8, 2016
    Good evening We are looking to fly from London Heathrow to Fort Myres and have a stop in Charlotte Douglas airport, at the moment the only flight we can find gives us 2 hours between the 2 flights, would you think this would be enough time to disembark, claim Bags, clear customs and check bags back in for flight to fort Myres Thank you Darren


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you, will book the flight and hopefully all goes well. It's myself wife and our little one travelling hope this flight works as we are really limited by choice of flights to get to fort Myres that time of year without having big stop overs or long flights or it costing the earth.


    Yes, Fort Myers is only popular with American tourists during the winter and spring - during the summer most find it too hot, so there are very few flights there during the summer and fall.


  • Can I make my connection?
    Jun 28, 2016
    I am on an American Airlines flight arriving at 6:51PM on Weds 6/22. My connecting flight to SFO leaves at 7:55PM. Can I get through customs and make my flight? We are in first class, row 1 so we will be the first off the plane. American Airlines customer service says I fly into C gates, and leave out of a D gate. I can switch to a later flight, but don't want to if I can make the first flight.


    Where are you arriving from? I can't answer your question without that info.


    We will be coming from Turks and Caicos. (PLS) one hour will be tight. We are first class on both flights. It will help to be the first off our flight. What are your thoughts about our chances on making the connecting flight? I talked to American Airlines customer service, and they said they wouldn't have booked me like this if they did not think we could make the connecting flight. (Whatever that is worth from a customer service agent)


    Yeah, flying first class it's not impossible, especially arriving in the evening on a wednesday when immigration shouldn't be crowded. It obviously leaves no time to spare.


    Thank you very much. I appreciate your opinion. After getting your response, we are going to chance it snd see if we can make our connection.


    Please update with your experience. Thanks


  • flying from india to CVG
    Jun 7, 2016
    Hi, i am travelling from Bangalore to CVG. i have layovers at london, Newyark and CLT. i got to know that i have to clear immigration at new yark, as it is the port of entry. my question is when i start from new yark to CVG, i have layover at CLT; at CLT do i need to check in once again to get the boarding pass? alos, i have 90 mins layover at CLT, will that be fine enough to catch the connecting flight to CVG? I am travelling by AA for the whole trip. thanks in Advance


    In CLT all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


    Thanks ZAP


  • Tight connection in CLT... Will my Luggage make it?
    Jun 5, 2016
    I fly Saturday morning 18 June from DC to Caymans with a 58 minute connection in CLT. I am worried about my dive gear making it from the DCA flight to the CLT to Caymans flight... any Advice on how to increase my odds??


    That should be enough time. If you're really worried you can pack your essential gear in your carry-on. Your regulator and mask shouldn't take up too much space and if you really wanted to you could probably make space for a wetsuit.


    Thanks.. I always carry-on my computer, mask, regulator, a wet suit, and a couple of changes of shorts/tees, but cannot fit my BC, flippers, etc. Will gate agents call down to the baggage handlers to confirm my checked bag transferred to my connection?


    No, that's probably not something that their workload would give them time to do.


  • Customs
    May 31, 2016
    I arrive at 9pm on a Saturday with a connecting flight at 10:30. Can I get through customs and make the connection?


    It's possible, especially that late in the evening on a Saturday.


  • Puerto Plata to Jackson thru CLT
    May 31, 2016
    We will be coming back from Puerto Plata to Jackson Ms thru Charlotte. We will have one hour between flights. I assume we will not make it. What will AA do to help?


    They will re-book you on the next available flight to Jackson, possibly through DFW.


  • Arriving from DTW
    May 31, 2016
    I'm flying AA, coming in from DTW on the 31st at 1:45. I need to catch a connecting flight to Savannah at 2:27. Is this enough time?


    It is possible if the flight from Detroit is on-time.
