Travel irritations are a common complaint at airports. Charlotte is no exception.
Charlotte Douglas International Airport is a hub for American Airlines. This is part of the reason it is one of the world’s busiest airports with nearly 120,000 travelers passing through each day. Continued construction and the addition of new flights are signs of an airport struggling to keep up with a growing region.
At the same time, that construction has led to confusion and frustration for travelers. The airport has also been affected by airline staff shortages. For example, hundreds of flights were delayed last July 4th.
As we head into another holiday season, are more delays expected? What can passengers do to protect themselves? What does air travel look like after the COVID-19 restrictions? How is Charlotte stacking up at airports around the world? And will that construction ever be finished?
Mike Collins and our panel of guests discuss the upcoming Charlotte talks.
