  • Is 87 mins enough time for international to domestic connection at CLT
    Mar 16, 2017
    We are flying from MBJ to ORD with a stop in CLT for 87 minutes. We will have checked baggage. Is this enough time to go through customs, recheck bags, go through security, and get to the new gate? It will be landing at 2:58 pm on a Thurday and departing at 4:25 pm. Do I need to try to get a later flight and pay a change fee?


    That is a difficult connection. However, you are not required to pay a change fee. I would try it and if you miss your connection, American will rebook you to Chicago. It is possible if everything goes smoothly.


  • 17 hours of connection between flights

    Hi all, I am checking flights to Cuba and the only options in my days is to fly to Charlotte and that means 17 hours connection. I am Spanish and I was wondering if is possible to leave the airport for sleeping in a hotel until my next flight. What do we need to do? Thanks!


    Yes, when you arrive in the US you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs and then are free to go where you want. Spanish citizens do not require a visa to visit the US. You just have to complete ESTA.

    I will be arriving from an international flight at 4:00pm and my domestic flight leaves at 6:00 pm. Is that enough time to clear customs?


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Enough time?

    I land from London on 30th March at 3.05pm and have a connection to Orlando at 4.30pm. Is this enough time and do I have to clear Immigration in Charlotte or Orlando? Thanks


    In Charlotte you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You are 5 minutes short of the recommended International to Domestic connection time in Charlotte. That will be a difficult connection, especially if you have checked bags.


    Thanks. As the flights are booked under one reference number. If I miss the connection, does the flight operator have to find us a new flight?


    Yes, you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Orlando.

    Land on AA #1794 at 1:52p and need to catch AA #1837 that departs at 2:34p. Is 42 minutes enough time?


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


  • Fly in from IAD and going out to Turks and Cacios (Intl)
    Mar 6, 2017
    My arrival is supposed to be at gate E35A at 10:56am and my connection is at gate D7 at 11:35. Do I have enough time and will I have to go through a security check?


    You do not have to go through security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have just enough time if your flight from IAD is on-time.

    Have international connect in clt 90 minutes.Three ladies over 70 can i prearrange a cart to take us from tsa to connecting gate?Thanks


    If you feel the need, you can request wheelchair assistance by contacting your airline. It does not guarantee you a cart. It is for people who need mobility assistance, not for people with short connections.


  • CLT to LHR
    Mar 5, 2017
    I will be arriving to CLT on May 9 at 8:55 pm. I have a connecting flight to LHR at 9:55 pm. Is 60 minutes enough time to get from a domestic terminal to the international terminal?


    p/s I will be flying from CRW to CLT on May 9 and arriving at 8:55 pm. My flight to LHR leaves at 9:55 pm. Is that enough time to get to the international terminal from the domestic terminal?


    Charlotte only has one terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Arriving on flight a72f750 departing flighta71f750 March 2, 2017 where are the gates located


    Whatever you posted makes no sense. However, you won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight, which appears to be tomorrow. Assuming your flights are on American, just check online at


  • Do we have enough time between connection?
    Mar 1, 2017
    Aug. 2nd-Arriving from Madison, Wisconsin at 10:40 AM on American Eagle. Depart for Boston at 11:30 AM on American. I assume we'd be arriving at the "A" concourse and departing from there also. Seems like enough time between flights but is it?


    Both flights may not be in the same concourse. AA uses almost the whole airport. Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Madison is on-time.

    What is time needed to connect between flights


    If the first flight is domestic I recommend 45-60 minutes minimum.
