I am flying Lufthansa from DFW to FRA connecting from FRA to MAN on Lufthansa. I have a 2 hour connection. Do I have to clear immigration? Do I connect in the same terminal?
I am flying from IAD to FRA on United connecting to Manchester, UK on Lufthansa with a 2 1/2 hour connection time. Do I have to clear immigration? Do I have to change terminals?
I fly from Denver to Florence with the connection in Frankfurt on Lufthansa on the same reservation. I have 1-1/2 hour layover will this be enough time to make my connecting flight and will I be in the same terminal for arrival and departure?
Yes, that is enough time and yes, both flights will be in Terminal 1.
I have a similar flight scheduled from Boston to Rome with connection in Frankfurt and a 1 hr 35 min layover. Glad to know it is enough time. How does this work for passport control? Is it within the terminal?
If I understand correctly, Z and A are both in Terminal 1 but Z is up,a level from A, is that correct? Are there any tips for direction heading down to A from Z (for,example if arriving at Z54 and leaving from A50 or A15)? Is it similar to (my experience recently) connecting in Amsterdam where there will be a "Passport Control" checkpoint in between Z and going to A where we'll get our passports stamped?
Yes, Z is on a different level from A but is essentially the same set of gates. Yes, there will be passport control in FRA.
I'll be arriving in Frankfurt at 4:25pm and departing to Chicago at 5:15pm. Is 50m enough to make the connection?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

One reservation, no checked bags.

On my return flight to the US (ZAG to SEA via FRA on Croatia airlines then Lufthansa) I only have a 1 hr 30 min layover. Both flight were booked on the same reservation and I will have a checked bag. Is this enough time? Will I have to go through security or passport control?
All you have to do in FRA is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We will be flying from San Francisco to Istanbul and will have a connection in Frankfurt. Flight from San Francisco is a United Airlines flight and flight from Frankfurt to Istanbul is a Lufthansa flight. So from a Non-Schengen to Non-Schengen flight connection. Seems like United tend to use Gate A20 for Arrival and flight to Istanbul departs from Gate B32. So we need to transfer from A20 to B32. Do we need to take the Transfer Tunnel or Sky Train, which has no control point to save time? Either way do we have to go thru any security or passport control which I doubt but not 100% sure? Does transfer tunnel from Pier A directly connects to B Gates or still have to go thru security check?
There is no security or passport control. Just follow the signs to the departure gate.
Hi! Flying lufthansa from Norway and are landing 14.50. And my next plane with Condor Flugdienst leave 15.50 to Punta Cana,(just an hour transfer). I dont know the terminal yet, but is there enough time you think? The trip has the same pnr-code.

Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags? Where are you flying to on Condor?
It's one reservation. Think the bags are going all the way to Punta Cana. Flying to Punta Cana on condor
