  • 1 hour connection
    Sep 28, 2016
    I am flying from Bangkok to Paris and am looking at a flight with a one hour connection. I am booking through united but my first flight is thai airways and the second Lufthansa. Will I have to go through passport control? Is this too tight of a connection?


    Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and security in Frankfurt. It is a difficult connection but not impossible.


  • Brussels - Frankfurt - Detroit transfer
    Sep 28, 2016
    Planning on flying to Detroit from Brussels, connecting in Frankfurt. Flights are LH1005, and LH442. Google tells me this would mean I'm arriving at A40, and departing from Z52 50 minutes later. Is this enough time to make the transfer? The map of FRA makes it look like Z gates are a level above A gates?


    Yes, they are on different levels. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    OK, thanks ZAP!

    I only have 1hr 30 mins to connect, is this sufficient to collect baggage and go through airport security?


    Where are you connecting and going to and from? You only listed two airports. What airlines are you flying?

Then I arrive in Munich at 7:45am with LH92 and have flight with LH1742 at 8.55 am to Chisinau. All flight are with Lufthansa. Will I be able to switch planes in 70 min twice?

  • 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.
