Amazing Airport! If you get stuck here, be sure to look upstairs between the D and the lounges for the prayer chapel and wonderful rocking chairs. I even took a nap here and it was great! The American Express centurion lounge is amazing with wonderful staff. They had great food and because our flight was delayed allowed us to come in multiple times. We arrived at 8 AM for an 11 AM flight and family left at 6 PM. However, we found excellent eating choices in the plaza. I recommend going there.
Charlotte Airport is a lovely airport although it is in a perpetual state of construction. Big airport and plenty of options for good food. Lots of lines here on a Saturday afternoon. My advice for flying in is to tell your ride to pick you up at the departures instead of arrivals... much less traffic at departures and much easier of an exit. I'll post an update when we leave Charlotte.
The Charlotte airport is one of the busiest American Airlines hubs in the US. This airport is quite long, and unfortunately there are no good transportation systems besides moving walkways to get between terminals. As always, the airport is packed. One of the nice things though is that they have many different food choices if you get hungry. For example, they have a main food hall right in the center of the terminal with several fast food chains. If you walk a little further down to terminal D, theres another full fast food hall that also includes Shake Shack. For those looking to relax and a lounge, there are two Minute Suites locations (one in the center of the airport by the main food court, one near terminal D). Both of these fill up quite fast, so it is very important to go there as soon as possible and get a quiet room to relax. Right now, only one American Airlines lounge is open in terminal B. This is an extremely small lounge, and to get in, you have to wait in a line outside. The reason for this mass congestion is that the main lounge located between terminals D & C is currently under renovation. This lounge is the massive one that can easily seat several hundred people without feeling overcrowded. Overall, I like this airport in terms of the amenities, but if there was someway to solve the congestion within the airport itself, that would make this even better.

The gate planning at this airport is terrible. They make sure you walk a mile if you have a connection here. Walking is not a problem when you have a long enough layover. If you prefer short layovers like me, oh man, you better run as fast as you can to get to your connecting flight, which would more than likely be at the very end of the furthest terminal from your arrival gate. (Based on multiple experiences. )
This review is coming from someone who had a 9 hour layover here, so I got to know a lot about this airport. Its a really beautiful airport honestly, I love the trees and natural lighting that were incorporated in this airport. Its very peaceful if you need to relax, or if you need to sleep. This airport is good for that too with there minute suites located in the central part of the airport. The airport has some nice food, and friendly people. Not a bad place for a long layover.
