Hi.My parents are flying in LH759 from Chennai,India to Frankfurt,terminal 1.After a layover of 4.5 hrs they will take UA906 flight to Chicago from Terminal 1. Since both the flights are from terminal 1 do they have to go through immigration and security before boarding their 2nd flight to Chicago?
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area they will not go through Immigration. Just through security and to their departure gate.
I'll be arriving from Singapore to Frankfurt for a plane transfer over to Italy via Lufthansa 779. I will be arriving at terminal 1 and my connecting flight is at terminal 1 .I have one hour to make the connection. Do i need to go through passport control/immigrations/customs and collect my checked in luggage and check in again?
All you have to do is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. You have just enough time.

I am flying Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong to Frankfurt Terminal 2 and Lufthansa from Frankfurt Terminal 1 to Prague, on two separation reservations. I have 3hr for transfer. Do I need to go through immigration/customs and collect my checked in luggage and check it in again?
Yes, you have to do all that. You should have enough time.
Ticket issued by United. Flight from CPH to FRA is Lufthansa. Flight from FRA to SFO is United. 1 hour connection at FRA. Is this time enough. Do I have to go through additional security screening at FRA. If so, is one hour enough.
Yes, that is enough time. No additional security required, just Schengen Exit Passport Control.
Thank you for the help. Arrival flight is at gate A. Departing flight is gate Z typically. Looks like 1 hr is enough?
Hi, my 18 yr old daughter is traveling from Detroit with a 2 hour transfer time to get a flight to Manchester. Bags will be checked through from Detroit to Manchester. Would you say that this is an easy transfer giving her enoughtime to arrive and depart without a huge worry that she will make it?
Connecting for the first time through FRA. Arriving on Air Canada and connecting through to Oslo on SAS. Is two hours enough time and is there security passport control between connecting international flights? thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time. You will just go through Schengen entry passport control in Frankfurt.
Thanks ZAP. Do you need to collect bags for Schengen entry or are they checked through to the final destination?
