We will be flying into CLT from St Lucia on a Saturday arriving 7:55pm departing 10:11pm. Is that enough time to clear customs? Also do we need to recheck bags? Both flights on AA
Yes, you will 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. You should have enough time.
Hi, we are travelling from Aberdeen Scotland via BA to Lhr then Lhr to clt to Mco all American Airlines. We only have just under 2 hours at clt. I assume we will need to collect bags and recheck them in again at clt??
Yes, that is correct. You should have enough time.
I am a flight from DEN to TLH on July 31with a connecting flight in CLT.
Arrival at CLT is 3:24p
Depart is at 3:59p
Is this enough time to get off the plane and make it to the next flight?
It's possible. All you have to do in charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if your flight from Denver is delayed.
The plan is to arrive from st. Maarten on a Tuesday at 6.35pm and connect to Columbus at 7.45 pm. Terminal c first, then to terminal d. I think.Just carry on and some purchases. Do you think I have enough time

Charlotte only has one Terminal. No 70 minutes is NOT enough time for an International to Domestic connection through Charlotte.
I have a 8:55am Flight on Sunday Morning in Concourse A. What Time Should I get to the Airport to alow time for Security & Some Breakfast?
If you want to eat breakfast and have plenty of time to do so I recommend arriving at around 6:30
I fly out of ABE, PA. And arrive at CLT at 10:40am, connecting flight departs for Montego Bay at 11:30am, will this be enough time to make the connecting flight
Yes, all you have to go in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, We are coming from London in flight 733 amercian airlines and going to San Antonio and have 2 hours time in between. Will that sufficient to flight change, US Immigration, customs, and security
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have never been in/out of US before. AA booked my family of 4 (2 kiddos) a flight coming home from Cancun to Kansas City MO with a 60 min layover in Charlotte. I didn't know you had to go through immigration, customs, recheck baggage, etc. when it's not your final destination. Since our final destination is Kansas City MO do we still have to go through all of that at Charlotte? Is there an easier/faster way? Is this even enough time to make our flight home? I've called AA 4 times & each time they tell me it's a legal connection time & so if I want to change my flight I would have to pay $200 per person to do so. Please help!
No, you do not have enough time. You need to contact whoever you booked your ticket through and have them change your flight. AA is lying to you or uninformed. If they are unwilling to change it you'll just have to prepare to spend the night in Charlotte after you arrive from Cancun.
I've called AA four times. They say it's a legal connection so they won't change my flight unless I pay $200 per person (family of 4) to do so. Guess my hands are tied. I'm going to have to just hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Wish I would have looked into this before trusting that airlines wouldn't offer a flight/connection that couldn't be made. You'd sure think an airline would not have even offered it if it can't be done. How sad & frustrating. Now a trip that my kids were looking forward to will be a trip we will just be worried the whole time were in Cancun on how we are going to get home.
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.
