  • ClLT Iberia FLight operated by American
    Feb 4, 2016
    If I purchase a flight through Iberia Airlines from CLT it is cheaper than purchasing on American and appears to be the same flight!!!! Still not sure if it is!!!! Does anyone know for sure and also if I can still use the American Club lounge as assume my tickets will print Iberia even if it will be the American flight Airbus A333


    Your boarding passes will not say Iberia on them. They will say American. If you are flying Business Class you will be able to use the Admirals Club in CLT.

    I can get a cheaper fllight on Iberia, which says it is operated by American Airlines out of Charlotte to LHR. The plane is the same big one that flies to London. The Iberia flight shows a different flight number but this does not seem to exist and as the plane is the big London one, I can assume it is this. 1) Does anyone know if there is a whole separate check in counter for Iberia at Charlotte, as I cannot find it in the information. 2) Has anyone booked the Iberia flight and is it the same AA 732 flight on the big airbus A333 to London?


    Iberia does not fly to Charlotte. You will check in with American. The Airbus A333 flights from Charlotte to London are operated by American.


  • International to domestic connection

    We're traveling from Italy back to Miami, Fl through CLT. Is a two hour layover enough time to retrieve our luggage, get through customs, and make it onto our domestic flight to MIA? We're both Global Entry Members. Never had a flight through CTL though. Will this membership have benefits there?


    Yes, Global Entry should make everything pretty easy. You should have enough time.

    We are flying from PIT to Cancun through CLT with only one hour in between, would that be enough time and do we need to pick up our luggage and go through security. Both flights are using AA


    All you have to do in Charlotte on your way to Cancun is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. You should have enough time.

  • how long to get thru immigration/customs?
    Oct 24, 2014
    I am flying into charlotte douglas airport @ 6:30pm from jamaica Jan 1st. I will have 1 hour & 10 minutes to get thru customs/immigration to make my flight to Indianapolis, an hour enough time to get through security & customs/immegration?? thanks for any advise


    That is 20 minutes below the minimum International->Domestic connection time. It's possible you will make it but it leaves very little time to spare. There is one later flight to IND from CLT if you miss your connection. You could call US Airways and ask to be rebooked on it or you could try the connection you have and if you miss it, hope there's empty seats on the later flight.

    I'm flying from Caymans into CLT as my first connection thru AA but operated by US Air. Will have have to pay in the CLT airport to have my bags checked in again?


    You won't have to pay a second checked bag fee in Charlotte.


  • International Transfers

    We are transferring from a London-US international flight to a US domestic flight. Is 2.5hours adequate for US immigration, baggage collection and rechecking in, which I assume we will have to do? Any advice on making this as efficient as possible?


    Yes, 2.5 hours should be plenty of time. CLT is a very simple airport, just follow the signs.


    My concern isn't the "complication" of the airport, it's stuff like US immigration. Sometimes there are terrible delays, and the bags take a while....


  • International Connection- Enough Time?
    Jun 23, 2014
    Hello, I'm looking at booking a flight from London Heathrow to Kansas City International via Charlotte. The US Airways flight I'm looking at has a 2 hour, 11 minute layover. I was just wondering whether this would be a reasonable amount of time to go through immigration, customs etc? Thanks for your help!


    Yes, that is a reasonable amount of time. Charlotte is not a large airport by International hub standards.


  • Elderly Parents 1 hour connection
    May 14, 2014
    My parents both in their 80's Parkinson's and dementia have a 1 hour connection in CLT to Newark NJ. Past experiences have not been very good with the reliability of wheelchair and people movers. Do you think a 1hour connection is not enough time to catch their flight? They are not frequent travelers and need can we be sure they will be taken care of.


    CLT is a fairly easy airport and they won't have to go through any security. But if you're worried book a longer connection.
