Re: Short taxi time at Charlotte.

As another poster said, it often depends on where you are in line during a big bank. At CLT, taxi times can easily go to 30-40 minutes in such banks.

I've noticed AA's putting E145s on STL-PHL in the coming months. Wonder if it holds.

At least they've got mainline (A319s) back on that route come June, but that may not hold either.
