  • TXL to SFO via FRA with 60 min connection
    Aug 31, 2016
    Tomorrow I'm flying from Berlin TXL to SFO via Frankfurt on Lufthansa connecting to United. I'm a little worried about my 60 min connection time. Does this seem like enough or should I see if LH will book me on an earlier flight?


    It's back open now. Still a mess but by tomorrow it should be fine


    Thanks. I meant in general, however.


  • Terminals A and Z are shut down

    Passengers have disembarked and EU citizens have left the airport. Some sort of security incident. Non EU citizens are in limbo


    Anything else on this?

    I am flying from Zurich to Bucharest, both are Luftansa flights and its a single ticket. Is 1 hour 10 minutes enough to change the planes in Frankfurt ? Do i pass through security again ?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Schengen exit passport control and to your departure gate.

    I am about to book a flight that arrives to Frankfurt from Athens at 9:20 AM and then I have to take the other flight to Miami leaving at 10:20 AM. I've seen that the second flight departs from the Z gates. The reservation is under the same ticket. Are 60 minutes enough?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
