Just received a notice that AA changed our flight. We were supposed to come in from Jamica to Houston but now we were diverted to CLT. Will we have enough time to clear customs and get to our connecting flight to Omaha in 90 minutes?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. Also, I suspect you mean Dallas, not Houston as AA does not have a hub in Houston.
Thank you very much and "yes" I do mean Dallas.
If I am arriving from Cozumel, Mexico on American Airlines and continuing on with a connecting flight with American Airlines to St. Louis, MO, will I have to claim my baggage or will it be directly transferred to my plane? Also, will an hour and 20 minutes be enough time to go through customs, etc.?
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. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am arriving to CLT from Mexico at 19:55 Gate D4 Terminal 1 and we departure to Chicago at 19:55 Terminal 3. Travelling Family of 8, with my parents (late 70s). Do you think we can make the connection? any advice to move fast? Both flights are same airline AA. Thanks
Charlotte only has one Terminal. You posted the same time for arrival and departure in Charlotte, so I'm thinking you mistyped.
I'm sorry, yes arrival 18:40 and departing 19:55. One hour and 15 mins for the connection, we should go through immigration, customs? Move to terminal and security. I need some advice how to make it. Thanks
Yes, that should be just enough time. 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.
My flights arrive at gate B5 at 12:13. My connecting flight is at gate E4 12:49 will I make it in time?
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I arrive at gate B and need to connect at gate E. I only have 35 minutes between the two fights. Will I make it?
Not a chance in H#@LL Concourse E way too far away and a disaster at that.
I've a direct flight with AA from London to CLT. May I know where will be the point that I need to go thru the custom and security check as I understood that CLT does not have this facility like other major airport in US such as LAX, DFW, JFK and ORD? If I've a transit at London before to CLT, do I need to collect my checked-in luggage for screening first?
You understand incorrectly. In Charlotte you will go through US Immigration and Customs. Charlotte is a major airport.
Am I safe arriving at 8:15p from St Lucia, clearing customs and then connecting for a 10:10p departure to Denver?
Yes, that is enough time.
we have a flight from columbus to charlotte on American Airlines 4405 arriving at 9:20 PM and have a connecting flight to london heathrow on American Airlines 732 departing at 10:05 PM is that enough time to make the flight? how far is the walk as we dont know which gate each will arrive or depart from ? thank you
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. Walking between gates shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. You should have enough time.
I am coming into CLT from Punta Cana. Our flight gets in at 4:55p gate D4 and our flight to Chicago departs at 6:05p gate D6. We do have a checked bag. Will this be enough time?
That will be really difficult, bordering on impossible.
I'm traveling from punta Cana to charlotte and have a connecting flight to Washington (IAD) in 1hr and 14 mins. Do I have enough time to go through immigration, customs for checked in bag and security check ? My flight is on may 31.
I'm flying on American Airlines coming from Philadelphia connecting in Charlotte to Savannah. Plane is coming in gate C17 - probably flying out of terminal E. Only have 30 minutes for the connection - can I make the connection
Yes, that is possible if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
