    i have a short stopover from New Bern NC to Charlotte with a connecting flight to Manchester NH. First time flyer and wanted to be sure it's easy to catch connecting fligh. Also, will any checked bags need to be picked up by me before connecting to next flight or will American Eagle/American Airlines take care of that?

     

    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags.

    I'm flying sat same airline both flights but I have 37 mins to connecting flight will I make it

     

    If your first flight is on time or early you should be able to make it. I will be honest though it is a tight connection.

    Flying in Tuesday, 9/13 at 6:15pm on American. I will need to go through immigration and back through security. No checked baggage. American flight to Chicago is scheduled to depart at 8pm. Will I have enough to time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    We will be flying into CLT from St Lucia on a Saturday arriving 7:55pm departing 10:11pm. Is that enough time to clear customs? Also do we need to recheck bags? Both flights on AA

     

    Yes, 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 should have enough time.

    Hi, we are travelling from Aberdeen Scotland via BA to Lhr then Lhr to clt to Mco all American Airlines. We only have just under 2 hours at clt. I assume we will need to collect bags and recheck them in again at clt??

     

    Yes, that is correct. You should have enough time.

    I am a flight from DEN to TLH on July 31with a connecting flight in CLT. Arrival at CLT is 3:24p Depart is at 3:59p Is this enough time to get off the plane and make it to the next flight?

     

    It's possible. All you have to do in charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if your flight from Denver is delayed.

    The plan is to arrive from st. Maarten on a Tuesday at 6.35pm and connect to Columbus at 7.45 pm. Terminal c first, then to terminal d. I think.Just carry on and some purchases. Do you think I have enough time f

     

    Charlotte only has one Terminal. No 70 minutes is NOT enough time for an International to Domestic connection through Charlotte.

  • Family of 4 coming home from Cancun Mexico

    I have never been in/out of US before. AA booked my family of 4 (2 kiddos) a flight coming home from Cancun to Kansas City MO with a 60 min layover in Charlotte. I didn't know you had to go through immigration, customs, recheck baggage, etc. when it's not your final destination. Since our final destination is Kansas City MO do we still have to go through all of that at Charlotte? Is there an easier/faster way? Is this even enough time to make our flight home? I've called AA 4 times & each time they tell me it's a legal connection time & so if I want to change my flight I would have to pay $200 per person to do so. Please help!

     

    No, you do not have enough time. You need to contact whoever you booked your ticket through and have them change your flight. AA is lying to you or uninformed. If they are unwilling to change it you'll just have to prepare to spend the night in Charlotte after you arrive from Cancun.

     

    I've called AA four times. They say it's a legal connection so they won't change my flight unless I pay $200 per person (family of 4) to do so. Guess my hands are tied. I'm going to have to just hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Wish I would have looked into this before trusting that airlines wouldn't offer a flight/connection that couldn't be made. You'd sure think an airline would not have even offered it if it can't be done. How sad & frustrating. Now a trip that my kids were looking forward to will be a trip we will just be worried the whole time were in Cancun on how we are going to get home.

     

  • Is an 80 minute layover long enough for checked luggage

    Hi everyone, I am traveling with American Airlines from New Orleans (MSY) to Baltimore (BWI) with a layover at CLT. The itinerary is: MSY - CLT 10:37-13:30 (AA2002) CLT - BWI 14:50-16:19 (AA2063) Unfortunately, I need checked luggage on this trip as I have an international flight the following day. Will this 80 minute layover at CLT be enough for my checked luggage to make it to Baltimore on the same flight?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi, we are are arriving in CLT from LHR on 31/3 and only have 90 mins connection time before our flight to PBI. We're a party of 7 with 2 young children, is it possible to arrange assistance to help us try and make our connection providing we're on time. Our travel agent insist it's enough time but I'm not convinced!

     

    There is no such service. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Enough time??

    I will be coming from Cancun on a Tuesday night. I will be getting in at 6:40pm and my next flight leaves st 7:49pm. Both on American. We are not checking any luggage. is this enough time??

     

    Even with no checked bags that will be very difficult. 69 minutes is well below the minimum International to Domestic connection time.
