Transferring from CUN to LHR through CLT with American Airlines all the way. Will the bags get checked all the way through and will 2 hours be long enough to get through immigration ?? Thanks
You will have to 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. You should have enough time.
Hello. Our Flight departs from Rome, Italy, to Charlotte at 4:45, leaves for 2nd leg into Orlando at 6, on a Tuesday. What should we expect through customs and baggage and will this be enough time or should we have a plan b?
That will be pretty difficult. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to Orlando if one is available. Do you mean you arrive from Rome at 4:45?
Yes. We arrive at 4:45 and our connection takes off at 6. I am trying to research but finding conflicting information, should we expect to have to go through customs, get our luggage and then recheck them and then go throughly security again? Thanks for any insight.
Yes, in Charlotte after arriving from Rome you will have to 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.
We are travelling from Dublin to Fllorida via charlotte on 10 August. Do we need to re check our luggage at charlotte or does it just go straight through to Florida?
Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin, all you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have 40 minutes between arrival and boarding at CLT and would like to determine walking time between Concourses E and B with Security points as well as distance respectively. Thank you.
There are no security checkpoints you have to go through on that connection. You have enough time.
Thank you.
hello there. Is 1hr 20 enough time for a family of 5 to land at CLT, clear customs and grab a flight to Fort Myers - RSW. Or are we crazy to even think about it?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thank you very much
We will arrive at 6:35 pm on Friday Nov 10 and will need to clear customs to get to a connection at 8:10 pm. Is there a way to find out if Friday early eve is a busy time for customs clearance? Also, how helpful will our Nexus global entry cards be?
Where are you flying from and to? That should be enough time.
We will be coming into Charlotte on Sun 27th August from Orlando landing at 17.20hrs. The international flight back to Dublin is at 18.15hrs - the bags will have been checked through to Dublin in Orlando. Is 55 minutes long enough to make the international flight - if the domestic flight is not delayed? Many thanks
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Many thanks. Much appreciated.
Hello, I'm making connections from Detroit through CLT to Paris. Do I need to worry about checked luggage? Or will it arrive in paris? Thank you.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. if both flights are on American all you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My 15 year old traveling alone tomorrow and landing Terminal B, and continueng his flight fro Terminal E to Myrtle Beach, was wonderin how far between the terminals and does he catch a train? bus or walk ? Thank you !
Charlotte only has one terminal. B and E are just concourses. All he has to do is walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate.

You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
