I will be arriving at 11am on a Monday on Lufthansa from San Francisco...I then depart an hour later on Scandinavian is this doable....by this stage I will have completed 25 hours flying having originated from New Zealand (home)
It's possible but it doesn't leave much time to spare.
Happy to not have a spare time just want to know I can get next flight :-)
Will I need to go through any security or passport controls?
Will the 2 flights be from the same terminal?
In march I'm flying from Manchester to Toronto via Frankfurt. I'm apprehensive as I've never caught a connecting flight so I'd like to know a few things to put my mind at ease. I'm flying with Lufthansa then Air Canada.

1. Will I need to recheck baggage?
2. Will I need to go through security/check-in again?
3. Will the arrival and departure gate be in the same terminal?
No, you don't need to do anything with your bags, you don't have to go through security, and both flights will be in Terminal 1.
I will be landing from Leipzig Germany terminal 1A 3:25 PM and need to catch a flight to Toronto 5:10 PM terminal 1B. Is this doable?
Yes, you just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Traveling Lufthansa and have a 50 minute connection in Frankfurt with my 9 month old by myself. Is this enough time?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you! Do I have to go through passport screening or do I just go straight to my gate?
Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Entry Passport Control.
Will be arriving UA from Washington DC with a 1hr 50 min layover to the connecting Adria flight to Ljubljana. Plan on carryon luggage only. Connection procedure? and is this enough time?
You will go through Schengen Entry passport control, then to the Adria transfer desk if you don't already have your boarding pass, and then to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
I´m traveling from BKK to Vienna with a stopover 3 hours in Vie. before flying to Frankfurt. There i have 1 hour 25 minutes to next flight to Keflavik. Is that enough time? All flights are Lufthansa and I´m a Schengen resident. The flights are booked in 1 ticket. Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time. Note that your flight from Bangkok to Vienna will be operated by Austrian Airlines.
Hello! I am travelling from DFW to CPH, via FRA. Our connection is 1hr 20 minutes, and all of our flights are LH. When we arrive to FRA, what exactly do we do? Do we have to claim our bags and recheck them, is our connection enough time? Thank you!
All you have to do is go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Hi,
Ill b traveling with a toddler (less than 2), and my flight will land at 7:10 and next flight will leave at 10:00..will that be enough time? I'll just need to change his diaper on the layover and then go straight to gate.
my flight arrives Frankfurt at 6:20 am local time. i will have to clear immigration and claim luggage before checking in to my next flight to Copenhagen which leaves same day at 9:25 am. do i have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
I'm flying from BLR to FRA via Lufthansa arriving at 8:50 am. I have a connecting flight to Dallas at 10 am via Lufthansa. This gives me a transit time of 70 mins only. Will there be good enough time for my connecting flight to Dallas, USA?

Thanks
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am travelling from London on a United ticket on flight UA 9232 but by Lufthansa carrier to Frankfurt on 12 May 17. I have to catch the connecting United Airlines flight to Chicago UA 906 the dame day. The difference between these two flights arrival and departure is one hour and 30 minutes. Can someone clarify whether is it possible for me to check in my baggage at London itself and collect it at Chicago ? And is the time of just one and half hour enough to change gates at Frankfurt ? In essence; whether United Airlines operating through another airline -Lufthansa in this case would provide me the facility of a through check in at London and I would not be burdened to collect and re-check in my bags at Frankfurt.
Yes, you do not have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Many thanks ......you made my day !
