  • Enough time?
    Mar 23, 2016
    Scheduled to arrive at 8:21am from BWI and then leave at 9:30am for Mexico City. Both flights are on American. Will we have enough time to make our connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I fly from Jacksonville to charlotte, then have a 60 min wait for flight to London, is this possible, I from uk


    Yes, that is possible. All you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Customs or nah
    Mar 23, 2016
    I'm flying from Pittsburgh to CLT and then to Rome, all American Airlines. My layover in CLT is only 1 hour and 15 minutes. Do I need to go through customs in CLT?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • Long enough layover for international flight?
    Mar 23, 2016
    I have a 1hr 37m layover for an international flight. Will that be enough time? Will I have to retrieve my bags from first flight and recheck them as well as going through customs?


    Where are you flying into Charlotte from? If it's domestic then that's plenty of time. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.


  • 1 hour layover
    Mar 22, 2016
    Just received notice that our flight will be leaving DCA 15 min later than originally planned. That gives us 1 hour from arrival until our connecting flight takes off. For an 8:00am flight does boarding start around 7:30? Thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do if the first flight is domestic is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection Time
    Mar 22, 2016
    I arrive at CLT at 10:45 am and leave for an international flight to Nassau at 11:30. Is it possible to make that connection?


    Yes, assuming your first flight is domestic and also on American all you have to do in CLT is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at CLT are connected inside security.


  • International v Domestic
    Mar 21, 2016
    I am due to arrive from London at 14.55 and are scheduled to fly out at 16.20 to Fort Myers. Is there a distance between gates and is this connection possible ? thanks


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.


    Thanks for your prompt reply. Lets hope there is room on the next flight to Fort Myers then


  • Is 35 min connection enough time?
    Mar 21, 2016
    Arriving 10:39 a.m. AA#1936 from Austin. Have 35 min to make connection to AA#5430 to Charleston departing at 11:14 a.m. What concourse(s) do these flights usually use? AA#1936 comes in on an A319 and AA#5430 is on a CR9 if that matters. Thanks!


    Flights don't have "regular" concourses. You have barely enough time if the flight from Austin is on-time.


  • Flight Change to Short Layover
    Mar 21, 2016
    I arrive at 3:09 from Cancun and have a connecting flight 1 hour and 6 minutes later for domestic leg. Both legs are American. Is this enough time?


    No, that's shorter than the minimum International to Domestic connection time in Charlotte.


  • Which Terminal will I come into?
    Mar 23, 2016
    Coming in to CLT from PUJ onway to MHT in July. Whic h tgerminal will I arrive into CLZT from PUJ in? Flying on AA 321 model plane. Thanks


    Charlotte only has one terminal.


    I know, I have been there 12 times last year alone. I was currious which Wing. I have never been there for INT arrivals. ? A-E. Thanks


    And obviously it is not coming into E from PUJ as those would be the turboprops going out to TRI and Roanoke.


    International Arrivals use concourse D, but that's pretty irrelevant as you end up in the base of the terminal once you go through US Immigration and Customs.


  • B6 to E16A
    Mar 19, 2016
    I'm landing in Charlotte tomorrow at 3:08 pm at gate B6 and my connecting flight leaves at 4pm from E16A. How long will it take me from gate B6 to E16A? Thanks


    It should take less than 15 minutes as long as you can walk quickly.


  • Quick turnaround
    Mar 16, 2016
    I arrive at 349 at B2 and depart at 419 at C12 can I make it?


    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Connection.

    I have a hour and 15 minute layover in clt , is this enough time coming from Ord , this is a domestic flight , will I need to go threw security or claim bags ?


    Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to go through security or do anything with your bags.


  • Overnight stay before connecting flight
    Mar 13, 2016
    Traveling Aruba to Pittsburgh, via CLT with overnight stay in Charlotte (local hotel). I will be checking a bag in Aruba and assume I must claim it once landed in CLT. Can I take my checked bag with me to hotel or does it stay at airport and I need to keep some clothes, toiletries with me for the overnight stay?


    Yes, if you claim your bag in Charlotte you will take it with you. You will preclear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba, so you won't have to in Charlotte.
