Charlotte Douglas International Airport
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.
One of my favorite airport to fly into. Their terminals have so much space, it never feels crowded. I love the rocking chairs they have. They have the best variety of food spots to pick from. Their restrooms are always well maintained.
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.
Possibly one of the airports I ever flew in that offers comfort and good food courts to passengers with long layovers. Between terminal B and C theres a huge area where people can find rocking chairs and tables to sit while enjoying food. The downside here is the narrow halls for gates, it can get super crowded during rush hours, to a point you can barely walk without knocking people over.
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.
