A major water main break has deprived the Charlotte airport of water. Restaurants have to close. People can’t use the restrooms, let alone wash their hands (I seem to remember something about needing to do this frequently and for 20 seconds).
The City of Charlotte has experienced a water main break in the vicinity of the Airport. There is little to no water pressure in the terminal at this time. The Airport is in contact with Charlotte Water to assess the situation.

American Airlines is telling passengers that they should use lavatories on board their aircraft prior to deplaning. Get out the coffee grounds
I feel badly for Charlotte passengers even in normal times. Rocking chairs aside, gates there simply aren’t designed for the density of American Airlines aircraft and there’s frequently little room to maneuver.
