  • Is 50 minutes from landing to departure enough?
    Jan 23, 2016
    Hi! With all this crazy weather, my flight had to be rebooked. I had to do it over the phone, and I forgot to ask how long the layover was. I arrive at 8:34 and take off at that enough time to transfer flights?


    Sorry, to edit that post. I'm pretty sure I'll land in concourse E and fly out of concourse C if that helps.


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. You can walk between most gates at CLT in less than 15 minutes.

    I am looking at a flight from London to New Orleans, via Charlotte, will the 90 minutes connection time be sufficient to clear costoms and get to the gate?


    90 minutes is the minimum allowed time. So it should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi I am looking at flights with BA from London to Knoxville, they offer a flight connecting through Charlotte with 1 hour 55 minutes between flights. I believe we have to go through passport control and customs in charlotte. Does this leave us enough time to collect luggage and check it in and get to where we need to be for the domestic flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from London is on-time. Note that both flights will be operated by American Airlines/American Eagle.


  • GCM - CLT - PHL

    Arrive CLT 1828, Jan 21 from GCM. Depart CLT 2005 to PHL. Carry on only. Please advise if time allotted is adequate. Thank you


    With carry-on only that should definitely be doable if the flight from Grand Cayman is on-time.


    Thank you ZAP. It appears that both arriving and departing CLT fights are in Terminal D. Where is passport control and customs located in relation to Terminal D.


    Charlotte only has one terminal. D is a concourse and immigration and customs is located below it.


  • Minimum connection time international to domestic
    Jan 19, 2016
    Where can I find an official listing of the minimum connection time for international to domestic flights in Charlotte. Airline changed my flights from 3hour connection time to 1 hour 15 minutes. Airline insists this is a "legal" connection.


    It's certainly possible. Where are you flying afterwards? Maybe there is no later flight and that's why they don't want to offer you one.


    That's correct. There is no later flight now that the schedule is changed. I purchased new return flights on another airline with longer connection time and asked for a refund from original airline. They refused stating 1 hr 15 minutes was a legal connection. I'm just trying to find out where you got the 90 minute International to domestic MCT previously mentioned in this forum in order to make a stronger argument for a refund.


    You are entitled to a refund in any instance where there is a substantial schedule change, even if the resulting itinerary is "legal" this is covered under American's contract of carriage under the section "Involuntary Refunds: In the event the refund is required because of American's failure to operate on schedule or refusal to transport, the following refund will be made directly to you."


  • Stop over time
    Jan 22, 2016
    I plan on flying from Boston to Pensecola with a connection at CLT. Going out there is 1.30 stop over returning only 53 mins. Is this enough time? I have arthritic knees so am slow walking.


    I have 43 minutes in CLT to connect from an American airlines flight from NYC to a PSA Airlines flight to Knoxville. Is that enough time?


    Yes, both of you should have enough time.


  • Do I have enough time to change planes.
    Jan 22, 2016
    My plane from Myrtle Beach arrives at 10:20am. The flight to Philadelphia departs at 11:15. Is that enough time to get from one terminal to another?


    Charlotte only has one Terminal. You should have plenty of time if your flight from Myrtle Beach is on-time.

    Hello i have a question, my husband has a conection flight from charlotte to FLL he arrives at 9:49 and the next flight is at 10:09 he arrives at gate E21 and the other flight leaves from gate C4, can he make it?


    That's barely enough time if his first flight is on-time.

    Hi, I am flying from Chicago to Dublin via CLT. The connection time from arrival to CLT to departure to Dublin is 75 mins. Is this enough time?


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

    I am flying through Charlotte for trip to Puerto Rico. Going to Puerto Rico, is 1 hr 15 min layover enough time? Then for return trip, I have 1 hr 30 min layover to catch the next domestic flight? Not sure if Puerto Rico is considered international and whether I need to go through customs or any other necessary extra things


    For all intents and purposes, Puerto Rico is considered domestic. All you have to do in Charlotte both ways is just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    I am travelling from Barbados to Charlotte with 1 hour and 38 minutes to clear customs and board my flight to Indianapolis, IN. Is that enough time?

    I am flying from london to New orleans and make a connecting flight in charlotte. i only have 1 hour to make this connection? will this be enough time? both flights are booked with american airlines


    No, the minimum connection time for International to Domestic through Charlotte is 90 minutes. You need to be rebooked on an earlier flight from London, a later flight to New Orleans or through another AA hub.


  • Check Baggage
    Jan 1, 2015
    I'm travelling from BUF to MCO with a 1 hr 20 min connection at CLT. I'm checking in baggage in BUF. Do I have to claim, recheck my bags, and clear security in CLT before catching the 2nd flight? Both flights are with Americian Airlines.


    All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You have plenty of time.
