    I will be flying from Dublin/Ireland to Charlotte with connecting flight to JFK. All with AA. I have 110mins connecting time. Dublin airport has special preclearance immigration & customs facilities. But will I have to collect luggage at Charlotte & check it back in? Or can I walk directly from arrival gate to onward connecting gate?


    All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks for the help.

    Flying AA from Cancun to Kanas City MO through CLT with family of 4. AA only gave us 60 min layover. Will flight 882 and 1653 be anywhere close that this 60 min layover could be possible to met? AA won't change our flight as they say it's a legal & doable flight! Help!


    60 minutes is well below the international to domestic connection time in Charlotte hang up and call again until you get someone who knows what they're talking about.


    I've never traveled out of US before & didn't know what all you had to go thru coming back at CLT so thought 60 mins was plenty of time & AA booked this layover knowing I wanted Cancun to Kansas City. I've called AA 3 times now & they all keep telling me it's very doable & so if I want to switch I would have to pay $200 per person for family of 4 to switch. Help!?!?!


  • Is 44 min layover enough
    Apr 21, 2016
    I am traveling from DTW to RDU by AA on Saturday. My layover time is 44 minutes in Charlotte Airport. If my flight arrives at concourse "C" (may be gate at C3) and my connecting flight by AA eagle departs from concourse "B" (may be gate from B4), do I have sufficient time to catch my connecting flight.concourse "B" (may be gate from B4), will be suefficient to catch my connecting flight.


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your flight from Detroit is on-time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


  • Is 38 min layover enough

    I am starting from Gainesville, FL to CLT and have a 38 min layover before my flight to SFO. Is this enough time?


    It's just enough time as long as your flight from Gainesville is on-time.

    Flying home to Denver from Jamaica with a 90min layover in CLT.. is that enough time? How does the process work in CLT with customs when we arrive? Do we get our bags and then go through security again? Both flights are american airlines


    That's just enough time. You will arrive, 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.

    My flight will arrive CLT on Wednesday at 6:14PM from Grand Cayman and my connecting flight to National Reagan Airport will be at 7:44PM. Is it enough time to go thru Immigration, Custom, Recheck luggage and security line in 1 1/2 hours? Thanks in advance for your help


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 40 min landing time to takeoff of next flight
    Apr 11, 2016
    I will be landing at E31 and leaving again from E5. Will 40 min between landing and scheduled departure of the next flight be enough time?


    If your first flight is on-time that is enough time. Note that the times on your reservation are not "landing" and "takeoff" times but gate arrival and gate departure times.

    Flying Miami to Charlotte tomorrow (9 Apr) arrive at 1920 for connecting flt to London at 2015. Is this enough time. On American throughout, so do bags have to be collected and rechecked as on arrival 2 weeks ago?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US, so you don't have to do anything with your bags in Charlotte. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    My sister and her son coming to DC. the connection is CLT. Can you explain to me the process that they need to follow. They are coming from Mex City, they dont speak english. They have only 1.25 hours to get the next flight to DC. Thanks


    They need to go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US customs, re-check them at the recheck desk then go through security and to their departure gate. The minimum international to domestic connection time in Charlotte is 90 minutes so this is a difficult connection.


    Thank you for the quick response. Is there someone that can help them with this process. Is there someone who can help in Spanish? Thank you.


    There will be agents there who speak Spanish if necessary.


  • Will I have enough time
    Apr 4, 2016
    I arrive at CLT from CLE at 8:30 AM. My connection flight to Montego Bay takes off at 9:25. Will I have enough time? I don't have to recheck my bags, do I? I am flying with American Airlines. Thanks!


    All you have to do in Charlotte on your way to Montego Bay is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • D3 to E13
    Apr 4, 2016
    I arrive on an int'l flight from london at gate D3 and I have 40 min to get to E13 for my domestic flight. What's the best/fastest way to get from D3 to E13?


    That's completely impossible. The minimum International to domestic connection time at CLT is 90 minutes. You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security.


    Sorry, I meant 1h 40'. But is there a faster route?


    In that case that should be just enough time. The route I posted is the ONLY route.

    Need to get from E 24 to B5 with 39 min scheduled from one flight landing (from Syracuse)to departure of next flight(Houston) Is that even possible?!


    It's possible, but obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Syracuse is delayed.

    My daughter is flying London to CLT then to Tampa Sunday. She is unsure what she needs to do when she arrives at CLT re collecting bags changing terminals etc. She is flying with AA. Thank you


    She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to her departure gate. Charlotte only has one Terminal.


    Thank you


  • 36 minute connection - too short?
    Mar 30, 2016
    I am flying Houston to CLT arriving 8:38A then departing 9:14A CLT to JFK. That's a 36 minute layover. Is this enough time? Will both American Airline domestic flights depart from the same concourse (e.g. Concourse A)? Super nervous as it's imperative I make the JFK flight.


    There's no guarantee both flights will be on the same concourse. You have enough time as long as the flight from Houston is on-time. All gates are connected inside security.
