    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Incoming on American Depart on Delta
    Aug 25, 2016
    Ok Ive flown before but I have never booked separate flights. I'm traveling from Boston Mass to Jackson Miss. My first flight is on AA from Boston to Charlotte (50 minute layover) and then I board Delta to Atlanta. Will I been able to catch this flight? Might be a crazy question but my mother booked this flight and I hate the way she did it. Thanks!!


    If you don't have checked bags and check in for your Delta flight online before you leave Boston, you can make it as all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You can't do this connection if you have checked bags.


    Thanks for answering!! I will have a bag I need to check in. What else can I do?


    Your only options are either don't check a bag or change your tickets. There's no way you can make this with a checked bag.


    Hi I'm flying from London heathrow to Charlotte and then onto Las Vegas. My flights are with American Airlines - I have a stop over of 1 hour 45 mins will I make the connection. Will I have to collect my bags and check in again and will I have to go through passport control thanks


  • Connection time
    Jul 18, 2016
    How long will it take to get from one end of terminal B to the other in the terminal E to make a connection


    Charlotte only has one Terminal. B and E are just concourses. That walk shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

    Hi! My flight arrives from New York at 10:33 and leaves to Jan Jose at 11:29. Both flights are with American Airlines. Will I have enough time? Just in case, I will add I'm Estonian, not American.


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


    Thank you!


  • Is flight connection time too short
    Jul 14, 2016
    Flying from DTW-CHS with 57 min in CLT, then 41 min on return flight. Is that enough time?


    Yes, that's enough time if the respective first flights are on-time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Customs

    I arrive from Italy on American Airlines at 3:55 on Saturday and depart for Houston at 5:59. Is that enough time to go through customs and get re-checked in?


    Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to check in again. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • AA changed my international connection
    Jul 14, 2016
    Hello there, I'm new on here and looking for some advice. My parents are retiring this year and we're going for a special family holiday to Florida as a result. We booked flights with American Airlines through with an itinerary the was EDI-LHR (codeshare operated by BA) then LHR-CLT (with AA) then CLT-MIA (with AA). Because my parents are both slow on their feet due to age and because I've had long delays at US immigration in the past I'd allowed 3h20 connection in CLT. Last night I got an email from AA telling me they've rebooked my CLT-MIA flight and have now left me with an unrealistic 1h24 connection time. Given that I'll need to collect my bag, go through immigration and recheck my bag and get on another plane in this time I'm already expecting to miss that flight and have the hassle of having to get a new flight and "enjoy" a very long journey at the start of my holidays. My original CLT-MIA flight is still running and has spaces (I tried booking last night to see). What I wonder is what can I do about this? I spent many hours getting an itinerary we could afford but that didn't involve any really tight connections which would stress us out and which my parents would struggle to manage. I would really appreciate any help and advice. Many thanks


    Call American and ask for the later flight to Miami. The automated rebook in includes an illegal connection. They may even be willing to rebook you on a nonstop from London to Miami.


    Thank you very much for your help


  • Going to be switching plane in charlotte for 2 half hours
    Jul 12, 2016
    Hello i was wondering because i will be going to Florida and my flight will be stop in Charlotte for 2 and half hours to change plane do i have to go through security once again before getting on my plane to my destination?????


    Where are you flying into Charlotte from and what airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that information.


    I will be flying from Minnesota the airline is America Airline


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Charlotte. You don't have to go through security. You have plenty of time.


  • 45 min connection time with handicapped person
    Jul 11, 2016
    Hello! we will be travelling from ILM to FLL in October and our Connection time was just changed from original 1h34 to now 45min. My mother is visually impaired and not good by foot. I am now a bit worried we will not be able to make it. What do do you advise? Thank you!


    It is possible - you could call if other timings are available - that is a pretty significant involuntary schedule change.


    Thank you, i will give it a try.


  • Layover
    Jul 10, 2016
    Hi I'm traveling from London Heathrow to CLT airport I have to catch a connecting flight to Little Rock my layover tome is 1hour 40 minutes is this enough time? Feeling worried


    1hr 40min is plenty of time. Walk from Concourse D to which ever concourse your next flight departs in. Then go to your departure gate. All concourses are inside security.


    Please Ignore Fly123. First you will have to go through US Immigration, then claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • International connection
    Jul 7, 2016
    Hi! I wanted to see if any of your other answers would be useful in my case but I think it's a little too specfic. I'm coming from France with a study visa and connecting in Charlotte. My plane from CDG would be arriving at 14:00 and the one to Memphis leaving at 15:59. From what I saw in this forum it would normally be plenty of time but I don't know whether I'm supposed to get my luggage and check it again, go through CBP then or upon arriving in Memphis, or even how much time all that takes. Does anyone know a bit more?


    Yes, after you clear US Immigration, you will claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Flying DFW-CLT
    Jul 3, 2016
    I don't have terminal information on my tickets yet and I'm worried about arriving in CLT at 10:47am (AA#783) and my connecting flight leaves for Aruba (AA # 876) at 11:30am. Is it far from arrival to departure gates?


    Charlotte only has one terminal, so there's no Terminal Information to receive. It shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes to get from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you! What are the chances for luggage if we check in? 45 min


    I meant if we check luggage at DFW to CLT and it has to get onto the connecting flight to Aruba (45 min) do you think it will be ok?


    Your luggage will probably make it if your flight from DFW is on-time.


  • International trip
    Jun 28, 2016
    My trip is all on American Airlines. August 23 from San Francisco and arrives at CLT @ 701pm. I change planes to fly to Dublin Ireland @ 815pm. Is that enough time?? Very worried! How far do I have to walk to the international terminal for my departure flight? Any help would be greatly appreciated!


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


    You are flying internationally. I always make sure there is plenty of time between flights, but I don't mind long layovers. The Admirals Club certainly makes that more bearable. Factor in possible delays on your first flight, taxi time which is not factored in the arrival time to the gate. Then gathering and exiting the plane. Then walking. You will have to pass through CBP as well. Peace of mind can go a long way. I would change the ticket. You don't want to be dealing with an international flight delay.


    Taxi time actually IS factored in - stated times are gate to gate. You will NOT have to pass through CBP when leaving the country. Please ignore Justin's post as it is completely and utterly wrong.


    Thanks for the reply, I feel much better. I've never flown internationally but it's my understanding that CBP will be when I arrive at my destination of Ireland. Is that correct?


    Yes, you will go through Irish Immigration and customs in Dublin.


  • flight from cvg to fortlauderdale on sept. 6
    Jun 27, 2016
    This is a connecting flight that leaves cvg. Minutes past 7pm And arrives at fll minutes past 12 am With only a 42 minutes lay over. Is this enough time to collect my baggage and. Go to my next flight??


    When do you arrive and depart from Charlotte? What airlines are you flying?


    Depart with American airlines 5281 from CVG at 7:55pm. And arrive at CLT at 9:28pm and depart for FLL at 10:10 pm. On American airlines 1717. On august 22, 2016 (sept 6 is incorrect (for another flight)). Any advice on this..... worried much


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


    Ok. Great. Thank you very much. :)
