I have an American Airlines flight arriving at 7pm and would like to be on a 7:23pm Delta flight. Is 23 minutes enough time to make the connection?
No, that is not enough time.
We arrive at c35x and need to fly out at gate c43 thru aawith a55 minute layover will we have enough time
Yes, that should be enough time.
there is a bus that goes between the 2 terminals. you don't have to leave security. ask an AA employee what gate the shuttle runs out of. you go down the steps and get onto the bus. it drives right across the ramp to the other terminal. you exit the bus, go up the steps and you are right next to your gate.
We arrive on flight 419 at 11:00 on June 3rd. I am not sure of gate but our connection is at 11:31 and hoping this is sufficient time assuming all goes well.
What airline(s) are you flying?
american airlines - that would help!
I arrive at 9:42 am @ 25 B need to get to 39 C leaves at 10:15am - Ouch! This is what the booking connection gave me.. Do I run ? take a shuttle?
you run. There is no shuttle.
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.
