  • Checked Baggage + Layover
    Jun 27, 2016
    I have a 12-hour layover in Frankfurt and I'd like to explore the city. When we arrive for passport control, do we first claim our bags and then can we re-check them immediately? I am traveling with a rather large box of equipment that I cannot take with me out of the airport. I'm hoping to plan my packing accordingly so I only have a small bag with me for exploration and the rest is checked away.


    Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?


    Hi there! Flying from Johannesburg to Frankfurt (Lufthansa Flight 9545 - arrive 6:10 am) and then departing Frankfurt to San Francisco CA (Lufthansa Flight 9126 - Departing 5:25 pm). I'm hoping to meet a friend for lunch downtown, but want to make sure my giant bag can be checked through easily so I can leave the airport (Flying on a US Passport)


    Note that your first flight is on South African Airways and your second flight is on United. Your bags will be sent straight through, you don't have to do anything with them in Frankfurt.

  • Connection between Frankfurt to Berlin

    I have a 2 hour connection between Frankfurt int airport to Berlin TXL. If I bring along a luggage, would i have to pick my luggage and would it be enough time as there is no passport control.


    Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying? Are all tickets on the same reservation or separate?

    Arriving from Manchester (UK) and flying to Detroit. I have 60mins. Assuming I have no delays will I make it???


    arriving into Frankfurt United airlines and departing United Airlines to Detroit


    That should be enough time. Please note that both flights are operated by Lufthansa.
