She will arrived in FRA with Gate Z58 and with a connecting flight via Gate Z66 going to HK with 1 HR. and 5 minutes lay over? Is this enough time to find gate Z66? Kindly assist us on how to find gate Z66?


  • 55 mins layover at Frankfurt Airport
    Jun 16, 2016
    Have a 55 mins layover at Frankfurt Airport soon. Will Lufthansa rebook if I miss my connection? Is rebooking restricted by my ticket class? Will the airport/airline arrrange direct shuttle transfer on the tarmac for affected passengers?


  • observation and connection question
    Jun 14, 2016
    Observation: We connect through FRA fairly often and know that it always takes more time than you think if you are changing terminals or have to clear customs and return through security. Last year my wife had recent hip surgery and used a hiking stick. 5 security agents tried to argue she couldn't take it through security because it had a little point and they said "someone might take it from you and use it to attack" but she couldn't walk without it and a woman agent came along and overruled them. Just a caution. Question: we are using United miles to fly home from Frankfurt in August. Our trip is actually to Scotland. Flights FRA to/from Ediinburg were not available for award travel due to the festival. We are happy to purchase but they won't link the flights so we have to claim our baggage and then check bags on United and go back through security.on the return.We are in business class on United. Is 1 hour 40 minutes enough time to connect on the return? Do we have to change terminals? Thanks for any advice.

  • Term 1, B area to E concourse

    We'll be arriving from Dubrovnik into Frankfurt Terminal 1 (section B) and then we have to connect in Concourse E for an American Airlines flight in 2 hours. What is the fastest way to accomplish this?

  • Lufthansa connection DEN-FRA-CDG
    Jun 9, 2016
    Flying on US passport, arriving on LH447 and departing on LH1034. Recently LH1034 has departed from Pier A while LH447 has arrived at Pier B or Z (perhaps even C once). Connection time is about 90 minutes. B to A looks like perhaps the tunnel might be the best bet? Unsure what to expect in Z to A... I know C to A would likely not be pleasant. Also, only carry-ons. Will I be able to avoid multiple (or any?) security and passport control checkpoints?


    You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 2
    Jun 9, 2016
    American passport from SFO to Iceland to Frankfurt. Not sure where I clear customs. Scheduled arrival is 11:45 - will i have enough time to get from terminal 2 to Lufthansa in terminal 1 for a 13:15 connection?


  • Enough connection time?
    Jun 8, 2016
    I flight Croatian Airlines from Split to FRA (Terminal 1) and leave 1hr 45 min later on American from Terminal 2. THey are on 2 separate reservations. American Airlinessays I need 1hr 15 min. I am worried though. Do I have enough time to deal with checked luggage/customs/terminal transfer?


  • connection times in Frankfurt
    Jun 8, 2016
    Have a group arriving on Condor and transfering to Frankfurt...issued two seperate we need to do customs, claim luggage, check in with LH and clear much time do we need to allow?


    They don't have the TSA in Europe ;) It's just called security. I would want 3 hours between those flights, although maybe a little less would be possible.


    Thanks...I used wrong word of TSA...let's hope the 3 hours works


  • 65 Min connection from Naples to USA
    Jun 6, 2016
    My parents are in ther 70's and not very fast. We only have a 65 minute layover between Lufthansa flights LH337 and LH438, both in Terminal 1. We have 8 travelers booked 5 and 3, but they are all booked from Naples through to Dallas, TX. Do we have to go through schengen passport control and/or security of any kind? I know we won't have to deal with checked bags, but wondered how hard this connection will be and if we needed to find assistance.


    You will go through Schengen exit passport control - you should have enough time.




  • Enough time to connect
    Jun 9, 2016
    We will be arriving on Monday morning from Venice on luftansa. Will be connecting to an American flight to the US. Traveling on US passport have checked luggage. Will a two hour layover be adequate? Thanks!


    Are you on two separate reservations or one reservation?


    Two separate reservations.


    No, then that is not enough time.


    Thanks. We will adjust our plans.


    I arrive from Copenhagen to Frankfurt at 21.05 and at 22.00hours I have the next fly to Budapest. Are 55min enough to change fly on Frankfurt????


    Cristian, if both flights are on the same reservation on Lufthansa, that is enough time. You will not be leaving the Schengen Area.


    what if I am travelling from Asia to Frankfurt, and Frankfurt to New York on one reservation. and have a transit time of 40 minutes. will this be enough?


  • 55 minute enough for Copenhagen to US on Lufthansa for US Citizens?
    Jun 4, 2016
    Hi ZAP--First of all, many thanks for all the help you give to us worried travelers! Please help! Last year, we flew Prague to US with 1:15 min connection time and it was brutal. We were bused from plane to terminal which meant we had to go through security again and barely made flight--though my son and I ran the whole way. Guess I am crazy to try again, but I can get a great fare from Copenhagen to US on Luthansa if I take 55 min connection in Frankfurt. Do we stand a chance? No checked bags. Thank you in advance for any and all helps!!!


    It's not impossible. But you know exactly how difficult it is.


  • Frankfort to larnaca
    Jun 4, 2016
    Has anyone flown from Dublin to Frankfort and on to larnaca with a 50 minute changeover with Lufthansa? I wonder is this enough time? Thanks for your comments


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
