I'm arriving 8:41 am at CLT then i have flight to buffalo so i have 39 minutes layover is it enough?
If the first flight is domestic that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight from Dublin to St. Louis with CLT as a stopover. The layover time is only 1 hour 40 minutes. Do you think this is enough time? Do we have to re-check our bags in? Thank you
You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Dublin. All you have to do in CLT is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I'm arriving in Charlotte at 3:28pm from Dallas . My next flight to Frankfurt will be at 4:40pm. Is there any chance to get this flight ???
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
that would be good. Thanx for your fast response :-)
I only have a 40 minute layover to change gates from B14 to D9, Charlotte to cancun, carry on luggage only, will that be enough time?
Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time.
I am arriving in Charlotte from Cancun at 6:40pm. My next flight to Charleston is at 7:44pm. Will this be enough time to go through customs if I am not checking any bags?
With no checked bags you have a chance. However, it depends on the security lines being short after you clear immigration and customs.
I'm flying AA from Rome connecting to CLT 2 hrs and 15 min. Do I have enough Time to pass customs/ immigration and rechecking my bags?
Yes, that should be enough time.
short layover time. Both are american air
Yes, that will both be on concourse E.
I have 45 minutes between 2 domestic flights (memphis-charlotte then Charlotte-JFK), both AA. As I will have luggage checked, I wonder whether this is not too short? Thanks!
It is possible. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.
I am arriving from SJO Costa Rica at 910p. my connection to JFK is an hour later. WIll i have enough time. Do i need to get bag and clear custom then recheck bag?
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. This is well below the minimum recommended international to domestic connection time at CLT, although with the late evening arrival it may be possible. Be prepared to spend the night in Charlotte.
Thanks for the quick reply.
