  • Connecting flight times
    Mar 3, 2016
    Looking at booking a flight from London - Charlotte - Fort Myers ( sturdy afternoon). Have a 1 hour 20 minute changeover at Charlotte - is this enough time for immigration etc?? Any help/advice appreciated. Thank you


    That connection time is likely inadequate the minimum International to domestic connection time in Charlotte is 90 minutes. However, without checked bags you could probably make it if your flight from London is on-time.


    Thanks for advice, appreciate it. I would have checked bags & also 2 kids & 2 parents plus me & husband so no way it would work! B thanks anyway

    Traveling from Rome through Charlotte to Portland, OR. Arriving from Rome at 3:55P. Departing CLT at 6:10P. My partner and I have Global Entry/TSA Pre. Do we leave the secure area after clearing customs and immigration, or do we just recheck our bags and proceed to the domestic gate?


    Once you clear customs and re-check your bags at the re-check desk you will be outside security. You will have to go through security to get to your departure gate.


    I assume 115 minutes between flights to accomplish all of this is quite sufficient at CLT.


    Yes, it should be.

    My flight for this Saturday from IND to CLT had a schedule change so I will be arriving a little over an hour later than originally planned. This change only give me about 40 minutes to connect to my flight to the Dominican Republic. Will this be enough time?


    It is possible, but leaves no room to spare. Unfortunately only a day before your trip there's not much you can do with regards to changing your booking. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Like everyone else, I'm worried about my connection times. My family is traveling from Hartford CT to Jamaica with a 75 min. layover in CLT. All flights on American. Will we have to get bags/clear customs in CLT? Will this be enough time? On the return, we have 2 hours 15 minutes. Thanks for any advice!


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Charlotte on your way to Jamaica is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time on your return, where you WILL go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check, and go through security.


    Thank you! Will we need to collect bags on our way to Jamaica at CLT?


    No, you will not. All you have to do on your way to Jamaica is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 48 Min connection with baggage
    Feb 16, 2016
    Hi. AA has changed my ATL-CLT-CHS flight times and I now have only 48 minutes in Charlotte. Will my checked baggage make the connection? Thanks


    It should be enough time. That's 2 short flights you're taking!


    I know!!! Thanks (at least I get extra tier points!!)

    My daughter's flight is delayed and now only has 15 minutes till her connecting flight leaves. She lands at E35 and connects to B4. Can she make it? If not, what are her options?


    It's possible. There's a chance the second flight will be delayed too. If she doesn't make it then she will be rebooked on the next available flight to her destination.


  • Customs

    Have 1 hr. 15 minutes to go thru customs from St. Martin on a Saturday night in May. Is that enough time?


    On a Saturday night I don't think that should be an issue.


    Actually Saturday is the day when more than usual island flights are coming in making US Customs backed up. Not saying you won't make that flight but I'd be running once I made it thru customs. I'm a firm believer there should be a MINIMUM 2 HOUR connection time when coming in from an international destination


    I agree but it's AA that screwed this up. Hopefully we`ll make it.

    Just received notice of flight change from American. Originally had 89 minutes to transfer. New flight arrives at 5:13, and departing flight to Cdg is 6:20. Enough time to transfer?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We have 1 hour between our flight in from St Marteen and connecting to Kansas Cit due to time change by airline. Will we have enough time to go thru customs and make connecting flight?


    No, that is not enough time. You need to call American and reject the schedule change and request a later flight to Kansas City or an alternate routing.


  • Layover from MBJ
    Feb 28, 2016
    Is an 80 minute layover long enough to catch a connecting flight on American from Montego Bay Jamaica to Washington, DC via CLT?


    It's not impossible but it is shorter than the recommended international to domestic connection time. It will definitely help if you have no checked bags.


    thanks ZAP - there is an alternate flight with a 3 hour layover, ill plan to go relaxed and do dinner :)


    We will be flying from London to Orlando via Charlotte will we go through immigration at Charlotte. Will we need to reclaim our luggage? Both flights are with AA.

    My family is flying from Minneapolis to Key West with a transfer at CLT. We only have 39 minutes. We are flying in on American but flying to Key west on republic airlines as american eagle. Will we have enough time?


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

    My daughter is flying from Boston to Tallahassee and has a layover at CLT. Her flight arrives at 12:20 and her connecting flights leaves at 1:15. She is flying alone (16 yrs old)and I wondered if it was going to be difficult for her to find the terminal for her connecting flight. She has never been to this airport. Are all of the American Airlines flights in the same area?


    Charlotte only has one terminal and American uses almost the entire airport. She has enough time. All she has to do is follow signs from her arrival gate to her departure gate.


  • Cleveland to CLT to St. Maarten
    Feb 11, 2016
    Our flight leaves Cleveland at 7 a.m. and arrives in Charlotte at 8:37 a.m. The flight to St. Maarten departs at 9:40 a.m. This sounds kind of tight. Is 63 minutes enough time to do this, and hope our luggage makes it with us. This is all with American Airlines. Thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • American Domestic to American International minimum time
    Feb 8, 2016
    Is 24 minutes enough time to make this connection? The more direct question is: if the AA domestic and AA internation terminals are one and the same. Thanks for the help!


    Charlotte only has one terminal. You can make this if your first flight is on-time and you run.


  • Customs and Catching Next Flight
    Jan 31, 2016
    My husband and I are planning a December trip to Dominican Republic in December returning the 21st the flight I am looking at only has a 1:35 to get through customs and catch the next flight. Should I be concerned?


    That is possible, but doesn't leave much time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
