    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!

    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

    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

    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

    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 !

    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!

    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.

    Lovely open atrium, plus they have rocking chairs and a wide selection of restaurants and shops to make your layover less stressful.

    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!

    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.

    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 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

    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!

    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.

    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.
  • Goutham G.
    One of my fav airports.. If ur an AA customer then probably u would have been here a lot of times.. Lot of options for food!! Starbucks at every corner 😀

    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!

    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. :)

    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

    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.

    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.
  • Bobby G.
    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.

    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)

    Great airport easy to get around just read the sings. If you have a long layover sit on the rocking chairs specially at night. Ppl are very nice! A taste of Southern hospitality

    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!

    Place is very crowded stick close to the walls when your walking or if u want to be a bulldozer like myself walk right through the middle haha anyway this place has plenty to do! You won't get bored!

    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.

    Very nice airport. Nice scenic view of planes taking off on the runway, which I enjoy watching. Nice small selection of stores to shop at-especially the Body Shop.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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 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!

    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.
  • Chris H.

    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.

    Look for the row of white rocking chairs along the moving walkway under the skylight. There's a decent internet connection, plenty of places to plug in, and a live jazz pianist.

    Don't forget to grab a snack for our troops at any of the little stores. There is a basket you can pick from and they put all the donated snacks in the USO. Show a little love.

    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

    This is the cleanest and nicest airport I have been to! There are white rocking chairs everywhere to relax in aka the best part.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    The lady cleaning the ladies' washroom near gate C18 on Dec 22/14 needs a hug and a raise! She was sooooo nice and friendly! Positive spirit, too. Muah!

    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.
