    If you are looking for a place to grab some quick zZzZ's check out the flat benches by the window in B8, all other benches have arms so you can't sprawl out but these two blue benches are hidden gems!

    Very nice airport. Free wifi in all terminals as long as you sign up with one sponsors. There is a row of rocking chairs where you can recharge your phone or plug in. I also liked the rolling carpets

    For a great & cheap Southern meal or all day breakfast, stop by Bojangles at the end of Concourse B. Great biscuits, fried chicken, dirty rice and sweet tea! Sweet tea up on the rocking chairs b/w B&C

    Another great restaurant...Check out Backwood Farms Carolina's BBQ. Great bbq, okra, chollard greens and sweet tea like you can only find in the south. Comfort Food!

    One of the best airports in the US. It's huge, but easy to navigate if you pay attention. Great shopping over long layovers, or just chill in one of the quaint rocking chairs throughout the airport.

    Efficient airport--be prepared to walk a lot though! Also, if you are on the conveyor belt things, don't just stand! Or of you do, stand to the side so people can get by. :)

    If u have a connecting flite Make sure the concourse is close....running a mile before a flite within minutes is not fun . However the people are so pleasent and accommodating to get out of your way:)

    Bad Daddy's burgers in terminal C are awesome. I'm a pilot based at the CLT and in my personal opinion it's the best sit-down dining in the airport. I'm a veggie and they have vegetarian options too!

    The main concourse is a paradise compared to the four gate areas. Grab some decent sushi there and rock the white chairs while you watch the mini vintage planes go round hanging above the sushi place

    Free wifi, AWESOME food, white rocking chairs throughout, plentiful windows and vistas; it is an excellent and charming airport. I go out of my way to come here, and enjoy any layover I get.

    The curbside valet is a great service; I wouldn't have made my outbound flight otherwise! Plus my car was waiting for me after texting my claim ticket number from the gate. Worth the $$$ in a pinch!

    Head over to main Atrium between Concourse B and C to listen to live pianist. They are usually there in the evenings and sometimes during the day.

    If you use the curbside valet and are TSA Pre Approved you can pull up to the airport and be at your gate in 10 minutes or less. You gota love that!

    Simply by its designation (CLT), it rates high on my favorite airports. Also, it has Bojangles Fried Chicken and an overall nice selection of food outlets. Needs more charger plugs at Gate B tho, imo.

    If you're not comfy with restroom attendants, use the "family" restroom. My experience is that they're usually empty b/c families aren't using them so they're a breeze to get in and out. Just FYI :o)

    Some terminals areole upgraded than others so hope you are in a good one because flights are always delayed here. Check out the Fox Sports Bar to catch a game or grab a mani/pedi on the spa. No joke.

    Hey zone 5'ers! Sit down & stop blocking gates, you're not going anywhere anytime soon & your bags won't have bin space. Check the bag at the gate and stop running it for everyone, we have places 2 B!

    The airport is a melting pot where, on any given day, you can witness both love affairs and emotional meltdowns. And possibly a TSA strip-search or two.

    Long layover? Chill out at the First in Flight bar, while enjoying the live pianist and the interesting mobile/sculpture above your seat. There are power outlets under the bar!

    International terminal has the best food, and don't listen to Timothy D. He obviously lives in his own small minded world of bean-pole people. Prob still jerks it to the bra pages of sears catalogue.

    The Carolinas Aviation Museum is only a 5 minute taxi ride from the airport’s main terminal. The museum has an extensive collection of planes and a great observation deck.

    FREE WiFI. Love the rocking chairs and live piano music in atrium. Lots of places to plug in if you look around. Seems like some of the moving sidewalks are always broken.

    If you have a long layover, take a peek at Charlotte-Douglas' public viewing spot. Watch planes take off, land, and taxi to/from the runway at one of the best airport views in the U.S.

    A lot of places to eat, get something to read and rocking chairs to relax if you got before your flight. Security checkpoint has, for me, been very quick, 10 to 15 min waiting time.

    There are many moving sidewalks which make navigating this expansive airport a little challenging. The rocking chairs are a unique southern touch. Also plenty of shopping!

    Finding something healthy to eat can be hard at airports. Surprisingly, Chili's To Go is a good place to go - they carry Oikos Greek yogurt and the Sabra hummus/pretzel combo.

    If you ever get the chance to go to Einsteins Bagel on the E concourse it's a little walk from the main atrium but there breakfast/lunch/dinner are amazing!

    As a non-rev, I come here often.... If you have down time, it's easy to find an outlet away from the crowds. Especially in Terminal E- I've caught up on many tv shows there with great secure wifi

    No matter where you're coming from, or where you are going if you are connecting.... You will HAVE TO walk clear across the entire airport! Male sure to give yourself plenty of lay over time!

    If you are in terminal B looking for tasty food at a decent price. Go to Bojangle's famous fried chicken and biscuits. Dirty rice as a side is yummy.
  • Goutham G.

    A great place to get wifi, power, a stool and a bar to work on is the Cinnabon by Gate E3/4. next to the soda case.Buy something if you will sit here, don't be a freeloader.

    One of my favorite airports for layovers and such. They've got what I call The Huge Hall of Rocking Chairs which is Sooo relaxing, and a great place for people watching.

    If you can get to the main terminal there are a lot of good food options. Use the GateGuru app for lots of flying conveniences like where to find food & stores plus important flight info!

    One of the best airports in the world. Lots of amenities, free wi-if, flights rarely delayed and efficient. If you don't like it, you clearly don't travel enough.

    Executive Shoe Shine near Starbucks is the best of any airport or anywhere I've seen. They use a butane torch in one of the like 10 phases to melt the polish.

    There are really nice rocking chairs to relax and wait in while you're laid over. Also, the indoor trees and the whole open plaza/street atmosphere is relaxing!

    Food options are commercialized and mediocre. If you see something that looks good jump on it. Grab a rocking chair. They are a unique touch. E-Gate is a hike to or fro anywhere. Get a cart.

    Take three steps away from the baggage carousel so everyone can see. You have no guarantee that your bag is coming out first. Don't make faces if others have to push through; comes with the territory.

    There's a lady who restocks the concession stands, she's always singing or whistling and sometimes dancing. She waves and sings hello to everyone. Be on the lookout for her. She rocks.

    Large airport. Lots of walking but plenty of areas to rwlax in a rocking chair and plenty of food options. For a layover this is one of the better places to do it.
