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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
