Charlotte needs a new airport. Way to small for the volume of travelers. Everything is outdated. Thank goodness for the antiquated people movers that cut down on collisions with people roaming aimlessly about.

You will be Ok, when you leave your arrival plane go directly to a gate airline desk and ask for where it would be your next flight gate. It's not far away. It's easy. Have a good flight.
