After a long break, a transatlantic flight is back on schedule at Charlotte Douglas International Airport for summer 2023. American Airlines is bringing back nonstop flights from Charlotte to Paris. Can we get an oui oui?!

American Airlines revealed in a news release that it will once again offer nonstop service from the Queen City to Paris this coming summer after what will have been a four-year hiatus. The last time this flight took place was before Covid-19.

This is not the only international route that will start again, the other is to Frankfurt Germany. That route is ‘currently in service”. It last flew in the summer of 2021. For more information get details from Channel 9.

I have never been, and I am more inclined to go if there is a nonstop flight. Maybe summer 2023 is my year to take a trip to Paris.

Study Finds Charlotte Douglas Is One Of The Most On-Time US Airports

Flying can be stressful these days. And for the most part, you don’t have too many options where you fly out or into. So when you need to get to your destination on time, it’s comforting to know that our local airport-Charlotte Douglas- ranks as one of the most on-time US Airports. I’ve flown several times in the past few months in/out of a total of 6 different airports and somehow I’ve gotten lucky and not had any significant delays or issues. But I’m well aware that’s not commonplace. Which is why this is such a telling and remarkable statistic.

It comes from a study by Booking.com, in which they ranked the US airports based on a number of key metrics. This included the percentage of flights that depart on time which is what Charlotte-Douglas ranked high in. To create their overall rankings they also used the average Google review score, average daily aircraft operations, total passengers on flights, the number of shops and restaurants, and other metrics. CLT didn’t crack the top 10 for overall rankings, but timeliness is in my opinion the most important. Shops and restaurants are nice, but ultimately I’m in the airport to get to somewhere else.
