I love AA and am a gold member. But be forewarned. If you are traveling from Hilton Head airport or from Savannah on your way to or from New York, and choose a Charlotte stopover.....the distance between arrival gates is enormous. At least a mile through multiple corridors. Leave a lot of time between flights. We had to run to make the connection in both directions and my husband was in a wheelchair pushed by very strong, willing helpers and it was a race we almost didn't make happen. Stressful way to travel. Never again.
