Charlotte Douglas International Airport
If someone blindfolded you and walked you into the terminal, you'd swear you were in an Upscale mall. Loved it! And since I'm a foodie, definitely loved the food court and restaurant options. Two thumbs up to the gentleman at Carolina Pit BBQ for recommending the Chopped BBQ Chicken. It was Excellent!
I'd love to rank the airport a bit higher, because the facilities are very nice. However, when I came through, about half of the stores and restaurants were closed, which was surprising since it was only late afternoon. I did appreciate the large amounts of charging stations and comfy rocking chairs, but found it difficult to hear announcements in the area of D gates since three flights were all boarding within 15 minutes of each other. Overall, not too bad, but still some room for growth from this traveler's perspective!
One of the nicest airports I've been to. I had an 8 1/2 hour layover and it was great. Awesome places to eat with something for everyone! I sat in the white rocking chairs and watched people walking by and listened to this nice gentleman play the piano! It made a very long trip enjoyable!
It was my first time making a connecting flight through this air port. My mother had a wheel chair . 3/5/2021 We had a Jamaican fellow named Howard ( who I ran into on my way back through the following evening 3/6/2021) who took Mom around in her wheel chair. very personable and very nice fellow . We talked about Bob Marley ( I am a musician) seems like he enjoys what he does. It's said the quality of a business is only as good as the people who represent it. If everyone else is even half as good as Howard, this place should always get five stars. Please if you read this, please say hello to Howard for me. The drummer from Philadelphia and keep up the great work
Easy to navigate layout. People walkers help move the masses so getting to your gate if you have a connecting flight should be no problem. Lines for eating anywhere are long, though and seating can be scarce. If you have more than 2 hours, this shouldn't be a problem, but less than than, the wait times will be a bother for sure.
