    Nice staff and great facilities - the Delta terminal A could use a facelift ! Breakfast at uptown bar & lounge rather limited A had to pay extra for milk in my coffee ! Only cream in small packets !

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    Customer service all over this airport has always been superb! Darrell took great care to get me from concourse A to C with last minute change in his cart. Been delayed here a lot always leave happy.

    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!

    Be prepared to wait once you land. CLT needs a traffic analysis done for planes driving the tarmac. And the airport is always crowded and your gate is far away and everyone walks slow! Worst airport.

    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)

    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:)

    Free WI-FI is nice, except it is up/down off/on. Each time it reconnects, you MUST accept the Terms of Usage! Not sure if it is worth it - reconnect in Food Court, between Concourses, and even Gates!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you are in CLT, first ask yourself why. If the answer is because it was't in your control, take a deep breath, leave. If you are here voluntarily, lift your head up high and blow your brains out.

    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!

    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!

    Things I always forget about this airport: it takes a LONG time to get from one end to the other (leave plenty of time to connect) and the bathrooms have attendants who awkwardly talk while you pee.

    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.

    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!

    Word to the wise: get out your laptop, take off your shoes and belt, and don't stand there holding up the security line if you want to get on your plane with as little irritation as possible.

    Sprinter to downtown leaves every 20 minutes, gets to the Downtown Transit Center in about 20 minutes & costs $2 each way (2013). Helpful drivers will direct you to transfers for your hotel downtown.

    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 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.

    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.

    ...if time allows & feeling hungry, head over to Brookwood Farms Carolina Pit BBQ for some delicious BBQ! Try the Combo (pulled pork and 2 sides, plus a fried pickle) tastes great... Read more

    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. :)

    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.

    Little sandwich stalls in 'E' sell delicious fruity yoghurt things with crunchy doodahs u can sprinkle on it. Better than any of the other buttery fried cheese covered gristly fastfood that is running

    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.

    This airport is huge, people walk REALLY slow and don't get the concept of stand to the right/walk to the left on the people movers. So be patient and hope you have 10-15 min between flights.

    Hungry for Cuban food while flying to the Caribbean in the Charlotte Airport? Try authentic Cuban cuisine at the Original Rum Bar and Grill by gate D2. Try the pressed Cuban Sandwich!

    Don't rush to baggage claim. Often, espec. during busy hours, it takes several minutes for the luggage from a flight to come out. Check boards across from the bottom of the escalator for your flight.

    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.

    This airport is so effing long. Takes forever to walk from one side to the other. If you land in Terminal A and you have a tight connection in Terminal E, prepare to run and barrel thru bystanders.

    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!

    If you have a connecting flight go to your terminal first before using the bathroom or getting food, it's a big airport with large crowds,so it takes a bit to get to your next terminal.

    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!

    Gates B11-B16 seem to be the most congested when I'm here if I have time to sit,I do it in the rocking chairs before I have to get to the gate, at the gate if you want to sit you sit on the floor

    Unless you have a long layover the airport is horrible!!! You have to walk 5miles to get to a connecting flight! Everyone is so nice but if I am running late MOVE OVER southern hospitality my ass! :)
