I will arrive on a United flight in the A gates of Terminal 1, then will connect to a Lufthansa flight in the same A gates. I have 75 minutes. Is that enough time to enter Schengen?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Entire trip is on Lufthansa. I have 1 hour to connect to a Munich flight in Frankfurt. Arrive and depart Terminal 1. Do I go through immigration in Frankfurt? Do I also have to retrieve my bags in Frankfurt or do they follow me to final destination Munich with no action on my part?
Yes, since you are entering the Schengen Area in Frankfurt you will go through Schengen Entry passport control there. You do not have to do anything with your bags.
I am flying into from New York to Frankfurt Terminal 1 via SIngapore Airlines to connect to Munich via Lufthansa also at Terminal 1. Do I need to clear immigration at Frankfurt? Thanks
Yes, since you are entering the Schengen Area in Frankfurt you will go through Schengen Entry passport control there.
Thank you for your reply. For luggage, can it be cleared from New York directly to Munich?
Do I hv to clear luggage / bags since arriving Frankfurt is by SIngapore Airlines and departing Frankfurt to Munich is by Lufthansa? Connection time is 1.5 hours. Thanks.
I have a flight to Detroit (USA) from New Delhi in Lufthansa airlines. It has a layover in Frankfurt of 2.5 hours. I am travelling on a international flight for the first time. Kindly let me know what is the best thing to do on Frankfurt airport in those 2.5 hours? And also please let me know if anyone knows about the transfer procedures as I have the same airline going to Detroit after the layover.
In Frankfurt you just go through security and to your departure gate.
flying from Porto, Portugal to FRA on LH arrive at 345pm and then transfer to United to San Francisco as 5:25pm. This is only 1:40hour this enough?
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
I will be flying LH business class from Los Angeles (LAX) to Milan (MXP) with 1 hour connection (Flights LH457 – LH252). Seating in the front of the aircraft (3 rows from the exit), is it doable? What should I expect for checks? Is the “gate to gate” service recommended?
Yes, that should be possible. You just have to go through Schengen Entry Passport Control and to your departure gate.
Many thanks for the response! Truly appreciated!
In addition to Passport Control, would I have to go through security check at any point at Frankfurt?
Once again, many thanks for your help!
I will be traveling from CUBA to FRANKFURT then onto Singapore with Singapore airlines

I will have only had luggage will I be able to connect in transit without going through immigration

as the german embassy say i will not need a transit visa if I can do this as i hold a Cuban passport but if i have to go through migration I will need one

Thank you
Since Condor and Singapore Airlines both use Terminal 1, you should be able to do this without having to go through Immigration as long as your bags are checked through to Singapore or you have no checked bags.
