We have a friend who is flying back home to Italy from their first visit to the U.S.

Are we allowed to walk back with them and wait until they board the plane?
No, you are not.
I'm flying with American Airlines from Lhr with a connecting flight to Orlando what happens if I miss my connecting flight?
Then you will be rebooked on the next available American Airlines flight to Orlando.
Coming back from Bahamas is 57 minutes enough time to clear customs for a domestic flight arriving from nas

You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I will be coming in from Cancun Mexico and my original layover time was over 2 hours, but due to an airline schedule change, I now have a layover of 1 hour and 10 minutes. Will this be enough time or should I try to rebook my flights?
That is not really enough time. I would want at least 90 minutes.
We are flying from the Cayman's and have a layover in Charlotte on our way home. How long does customs and such take? Our current flight is delayed and I'm concerned we will miss our flight home. Thanks!
I have epilepsy and was wondering if i may have someone escort me to my flights
The only way to get that is by requesting wheelchair service.
How much time do I need to allow to be on time to catch my flight?
My flight is currently scheduled for 1:40PM, 7/26
If you don't have bags to check, getting there at 12:30 for a domestic flight and 12:00 for an International flight should be fine. Add another 15 minutes to check bags.
Thank you. This is helpful.
I will be coming home from abroad next week and my flight lands in Charlotte on a Thursday at 6:25 by connecting flight is at 8. Will this be enough time to go through customs and border patrol and make the next flight? I am a U.S. citizen
Yes, that should be enough time. Where are you coming from?
Barcelona, Spain
Then, yes, that is just enough time.
How much time will it take me to catch my connecting flight? I fly into Charlotte on American and I have 25 minutes to get to my connecting flight on American Eagle. Will this be enough time? What is the best way to make this connection?? Thank you!!
That's not really enough time for any connection. Maybe it's enough time if the first flight is early. It's pretty risky even though Charlotte is pretty simple and rarely has delays.
OK so I just realized that I misread my flight times. I arrive in Charlotte at 12:35 PM on America and my connecting flight leaves at 1:10 PM on American Eagle. Does that change your thoughts?? Thank you very much for your help!!
Yes, that makes it a little more doable.
Does Charlotte Douglas Airport have a plastic wrapping service for car tires ? If so, where is it located ?
