    We are leaving Valencia,Spain to connect at Frankfurt to San Francisco. Is 11/2 hours enough?? Or would 4 hr layover be better???

     

    90 minutes should be enough time.

    Travelling to FRA from SJC via LH489 and have a 1 hour 25 minutes layover before I take LH754 from FRA to BLR. The flight arrives at Terminal 1 and LH754 also departs from Terminal 1. Is the layover too tight.

     

    That should be enough time. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We fly into F'Furt from Manchester and then have 5.45 mins before the 20.45 flight to J'Burg. Realise that we can check our luggage straight through , but will we remain airside for this duration? Trying to work out what to do - thinking a meal but then lounge (Luxe) e is landside , so don't know how that would work and probably want to be more active rather that sit down - any ideas for a walk ( round the airport) and where we could leave our hand luggage? Would there be anywhere to have a shower prior to our evening flight? Any suggestions for a restaurant?

     

    Yes, you will stay airside. FRA airside is very large so there's lots of places to walk.

    I am traveling to Dubai with the layover of 1hr 30 min in Frankfurt is this much time is enough

     

    My flight is from From US to Dubai with layover of 1:30 at Frankfurt

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Assuming all tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I made a mistake looking at my itinerary. I actually have 2 hours and 15 minutes layover in Frankfurt. Will that be enough time? And how do I ensure my luggage will transfer from Lufthansa to Aegean? Also, the 45 minute layover is in Thessaloniki Greece going to Santorini. Is that enough time? I know that is a smaller airport. Thank you so very much.

     

    2 hrs 15 mins should be plenty of time. If you purchased your tickets together the bags will be tagged through to Santorini. Both Lufthansa and Aegean are in Star Alliance.

    I am coming from the US and traveling to Thessaloniki Greece with a layover in Frankfurt. My layover time is 45 minutes. I understand Frankfurt is a huge airport and I want to make sure that is enough time. Also, will my luggage be transferred or would I need to get my luggage and check in again?? Any advice or tips would be much appreciated.

     

    You will not have to claim your luggage but that is a very tough connection since you will go through Schengen Immigration and security on your way to your departure gate.

    You barely have enough time fo ryour connection. Yes, you need to go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, re-check your bags with United, then take the ATS Train from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 and go through security and to your departure gate. Just bringing a carry-on will save you a little time.

     

    Oooo wow. Thank you so much for you reply! I really appreciate it. It really has helped. I guess I should just bring a carry on... :(

    I am travelling from San Francisco (USA) to Barcelona (Spain) having a layover at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). I am arriving at Frankfurt via United UA926 with layover of 1hr15min to catch Lufthanan LH1132. Would 1hr 15min be too rush in this case? Thanks in advance for any advise
