We are travelling from Dub to CLT in Sept, flight lands at 1.10pm and next flight to vegas is 2.55, all American, can we check our bags from Dub to Vegas without going to baggage hall? We have cleared in Dub. On the way back Vegas flight lands at 4.40pm and Dub flight departs 6.15pm, all American, can bags be checked from Vegas to Dub without picking from baggage hall? Can we use global entry to fast track on the way home?
Yes, your bags will be checked through to Las Vegas on the way there and Dublin on the way back. All you have to do in Charlotte both ways is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I'm flying from Lhr to Clt and have got 1 hour 20 min between flights there's 9 of us including 3 kids and 2 oap's we have obviously got to go through immigration and collect bags is it doable?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I recommend more time.
Do you know how many international flights fly into charlotte on a Wednesday afternoon.. just wondering if immigration will be busy.
It depends on the time of year. Charlotte is a major transatlantic and caribbean hub for American.
I'm traveling on wed 18th oct
Land About 3pm
A Wednesday in October won't be busy.
Thank you for your advice. X
We are flying with AA from Dublin into Charlotte in October. So will already have cleared immigration. We will be connecting to onward flight to Orlando. Do you normally have to change concourse or do both flights arrive and leave from the same concourse.
You may have to change concourses. Regardless all flights in Charlotte are connected inside security and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We are arriving to CLT at 8:34 on American Airlines and then connecting at 9:20 on American Airlines to Florida. If we come in on concourse A, which is listed on their map, do we connect on the same concourse? We don't have gate assignments yet and I wasn't sure if the same airline would go out of another concourse.
Really worried about the short time...only about 45 minutes. American moved up our departure flight. Yikes!!
You won't know until the day of your flight. American uses every concourse in Charlotte. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Dear Sirs
We are flying form Barcelona to Charlotte and from Charlotte to La Havana for humanitarian cause. We are a Community that are travelling from 31 of July to 15 of August to help in the School of Peace with the most disadvantaged children in the most difficult situation and areas.
We have learned that perhaps we cannot fly from USA to Cuba.
Please, tell us how to proceed as we have already our flight tickets and our Community is waiting there for our help,
That is not true. You are just asked the reason for your ticket purchase to Cuba when purchasing, since you are not US Citizens this technically does not matter, but just answer "Aid for the people of Cuba". If you have already purchased your tickets you have nothing to worry about - you just have to complete ESTA (assuming you are all Spanish citizens) because you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Charlotte.
Sweet thanks for your complete answer. We will proceed as per your kind indications. Have a wonderful day!
It takes20min to walk from b to e. It is far. And there are only moving sidewalks to help. Charlotte has a-e concourses and e is the farthest. It is taking you15-20to walk from a,b or c
I arrive at E 27 (1:51 pm.); depart from B7 (2:45 p.m). How far is it between these gates? Is there assistance to travel between gates?
Depending how you walk it will take about15min. Just to walk...brisk. Not including going to get your bags. You will need to carry on to make it
Coming into CLT from Antigua (international flight), how long should be allowed to get to a connecting flight after going through immigration and customs? The only connecting flight to my destination is 1.5 hours after landing at CLT. Thank you.
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I arrive at gate B6 at 10:16 and leave at E14 at 11:40 is that enough time or do I need to get assistance ?
That is plenty of time. It should take less than 15 minutes to walk that distance.
sweet thanks I was in a panic for a minute ..:)
How long does it take to get from C9 to B5?
Charlotte only has one terminal. That should take only 5-10 minutes.
