I have an overnight layover in Charlotte from MEM with my next flight leaving the following morning. Once I get in Charlotte, how do I get around to booking a hotel for the night before my next flight?
Go online and search for airport hotels in Charlotte and book one with a complimentary airport shuttle.
I land at CLT at 5:15pm on American and my connecting flight is at 5:50pm on American. Is this long enough to make my connecting flight?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Am flying American Airlines from Charlottesville to Charlotte and have a 29 minute layover for flight to Asheville. Enough time?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I am debating this flight that has a 51 minute layover through CLT. I'll have checked baggage as well.
Do you think think i'll have enough time? I would be landing early afternoon on a Sunday.
I forgot to mention, both flights are American.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
flying into CLT at 1047, then leaving for MBJ (Jamaica, international) at 11:30AM - 43min layover, is that enough time to make the flight and bag transfer?
Yes, that's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. It obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if it isn't.
On a Friday, if I arrive at 5:20p can I make the next flight that departs at 5:59p?
Thanks, Jackie
If both flights are on American and the first flight is on-time, yes, it is possible.
I've got a flight from London to Charlotte with a connection to Columbus OH all on American with a 1 hour 47 minute layover - is that enough time to clear customs and immigration ?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Is 2 hours long enough to clear customs
Yes, that should be enough time.
Nervous flyers, we have an hour and fourteen min. layover in Charlotte, Miami to Richmond, with only carry on, what are the chances we can make it?
Is it hard to determine where we are supposed to catch this second plane? Will it be on the ticket?
1hr 14min Should Be Enough Time. If you booked it together it should be on he ticket. It should be in concourse B,C, or D.
It won't be on your ticket and probably not on your boarding pass - the best place to look is the departure monitors in the terminal in Charlotte. You have enough time and all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am traveling from London to GSP with a 90 minutes layover at Charlotte. Is this much time is sufficient for immigration and everything. considering i am inexperienced international traveler. I will be reaching CLT at 14:55 on 8th aug.
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
