Hi, I am flying with Lufthansa from Washington to FRA and after with same company to Tunisia time between flight 1h30 I have 3 kids, it is my first time how can I go to my departure gate? thanks
If both flights are the same reservation all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Travelling with a 3 yr old on 3/18 arriving from CLT on AA at 6:20 am. We have another flight at 9 am to LYS on Lufthansa that is not on the same reservation. I know I will have to get our luggage and recheck. Just wondering if there will be enough time to do it all. Thanks in advance for any input.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that you will also have to change terminals.
Yes, I am aware... :) I just hope the congestion due to construction has eased up since last summer. We took a bus for the transfer and it was a nightmare.
Hi. I am flying Air Canada from Toronto to Frankfurt with a 1.15minute connection before flying with Lufthansa to Florence. Is that enough time to make the next flight? Will I need to collect luggage or clear customs?

Thanks!
No need to ask the same question twice. You will go through Schengen entry passport control. You don't have to do anything with your luggage if both flights are on the same reservation.
Thanks for your help! Sorry - didn't see that the first post went through. Much appreciated!
Hi there! I'm taking SQ26 from Singapore to Frankfurt which will arrive at 620am. My next connect to Berlin is LH174 at 745am, all in terminal 1. So do I need to go thru passport control and security check? Is 1hr25 mins sufficient for connection? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Hi. I am flying from Toronto to Florence with a 1 hour and 15 minute layover in Frankfurt. Is that enough time to make the next flight? (flights are with Air Canada and Lufthansa). Thanks for your help.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. you just have to go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate.
Arriving AC9583 at 8.30 am and leaving AC0873 at 9.20 am both from Terminal 1. Is 50 mins sufficient for transit?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Will 1 hour 20 min layover be enough time to clear customs and immigration?
Yes, all you have to do in Frankfurt is go through Schengen exit passport control. Where are you flying to from Frankfurt?
Flying to Fra from Mumbai. Arrive at 8:00 at terminal 1 and leave from terminal 1 at 9:20. Will we have time for transfer? Thank you
Where are you flying to?
I've a flight from Zagreb to Frankfurt (OU410) arriving 0915 in FRA Terminal 1. Then I have flight from FRA to London at 1055 (BA 0903) departing from Terminal 2. Do I have enough time? Do I have to collect my luggage and clear immigration again? Thanks.
If it's two separate reservations, you will have to go through Immigration, claim your bags, take the Skyline to Terminal 2, re-check your bags, go through security and schengen exit passport control. That will be very difficult to do in that amount of time.
Thanks! very helpful advice. Looks like I won't risk it.
Flying Orlando FL to Prague. Change planes in Frankfurt. Will arrive and leave from terminal 1. What do we have to do upon arrival? Passport check? Is 90 min enough time?
If both flights are on Lufthansa then all you have to do is go through Schengen entry passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
