we are flying american airlines arriving in terminal c need to transfer to terminal b. questions: do we have to retrieve our own luggage. we have a little over an hour...is this enough time
if both flights are on American you don't have to do anything with your bags in DCA if both flights are on the same reservation. You should have enough time.

Arriving from MCO (Terminal B) and connecting to YYZ (should be Terminal A), both AA, checked baggage and about 2 hours to change.
Have we go through the security again? I'm worried about the terminal plan? Or is the there a airside shuttle? Thank you!
Yes, you will have to go through security again. It is a very short walk and security lines at DCA are almost always very short and you have plenty of time.
I have a flight that arrives at 3:56pm at DCA in terminal C and my next flight is at 4:30pm in terminal B, both are American Airlines and no checked bags. Will I have enough time to make it to my connecting flight?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We will have a short layover between our flights - 40 min. I cannot walk fast due to bad knees. Is there a handicap cart that can pick me up at C and take me to B terminal ? Not a wheel chair - due to luggage.
There is no way to guarantee a cart. You have to ask your airline.
I do not know my gates yet but on Tuesday, March 14th I arrive at DCA at 8:00 am and have to go to CLT boarding at 8:55 am. Traveling on AA Eagle first flight then getting on AA for flight to CLT. We will have checked bags. Will I make my connection ok? About how long is it.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My son is flying from Syr to Reagan, arriving at 7:00pm. His connecting flight to Tampa departs at 7:35pm. Flights are 3/9/17. Will he need to go through security again? Not sure of gates yet, but looking like arriving Gate 40's and leaving Gate 20's. He will have 1 checked bag.
Update: His gate for arrival is Gate 42 and departure is Gate 33. Will 35 min be enough time, if he has to go through security again? Thank you for any help! It's his first time flying alone.
He will have to go through security again, but the lines at DCA are typically very short. He should be OK if the flight from Syracuse is on-time.
Terminal c to terminal a?
About 10 minutes.
I have 1 hour and 15 minutes to connect from Terminal c to Terminal B. Is this enough time?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I arrive to gate 35x terminal C at 6:51pm and my connecting flight leaves 7:30pm from gate 25 terminal B. It's American and I don't have checked luggage.
That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.
Can my son walk from terminal B baggage claim to terminal C inside so I can pick him and a friend up in one location?
He may have to briefly go outside, but it's a very short walk.
