  • Enough time??
    Mar 27, 2016
    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.


  • Overnight Connection and Baggage
    Mar 22, 2016
    I have a Overnight connection in CLT. I am Coming at 9.11 PM and my nextflight is at 9.14 am to JFK, From JFK i am flying to India with Etihad airways.Does American Airlines will check my bags all the way to India or i have to claim bags in CLT and recheckin them next day morning.I am planning to stay inside the terminal. If they checkin i dont have to comeoutside to recheckin next day. Any Thoughts.


    You will probably have to claim your bags and re-check them the next morning due to the length of your layover. Also the concourses at CLT close at around midnight, so you'd have to leave the concourse area anyway.


  • Transport for disabled between gate
    Aug 25, 2016
    We are arriving at a commuter gate and departing from an int'l gate - a long walk. We have seen shuttles providing transport. How do we reserve?


    The golf carts in the concourses are for people needing wheelchair assistance.


    What about elderly, 80 yo with trouble walking, especially after 4 1/2 hour flight, then needs to go from the large terminal to the small terminal with very little time in between? This walk will be long and hard! But they aren't in a wheelchair. Can they get assistance from golf cart if they ask?


  • How long do I need to leave between changeovers
    Mar 5, 2016
    We are travelling from Dublin, Ireland to Orlando with a lay-over in Charlotte. I want to know do we need to re-check our baggage and if so how long would it take to get from the transaltantic terminal to the internal terminal. Am travelling with 3 kids and am trying to keep the travel time to a minimum


    Charlotte only has one Terminal. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate.


    Sorry, got cut off. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connecting
    Mar 5, 2016
    I'm flying from Cvg to San Juan connect in Charlotte, only have 55 minutes to change planes, is this enough time. The flight is on a Saturday


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


  • Customs and layover

    We are flying from Nassau to Minneapolis with a 65 minute layover at CLT. Is that enough time to do what we need to do and get to our connection to MSP? First time international traveler!


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


  • Small Children connecting flight
    Feb 14, 2016
    Our family of 5 is flying to charlotte airport next monday morning. Our 3 small children are getting picked up by their grandparents from the airport (age 2, 4, 6) while my husband and I get on a connection flight down to Florida 50 min after we land. What is the best way to get our small children to their grandparents without us having to leave and go back through security?


    Gee, with kids that little I don't think there is a way you could do it without exiting security.


  • 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.


  • Iberia
    Feb 1, 2016
    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
    Jan 22, 2016
    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.


  • Connection for domestic to international
    Jan 20, 2016
    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.
