  • Layover time
    Jun 5, 2014
    I'm flying Toronto (YYZ) to Frankfurt (FRA) on Lufthansa 6789 (operated by AC) with a 2h 15m layover until my flight from Frankfurt (FRA) to Budapest (BUD) on Lufthansa 1336 (operated by Lufthansa). Is the 2h 15m layover sufficient?


    forgot to add all flts are on DL


    You will arrive in Terminal 4. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta. Then you can go up to the departures level and through security then take Delta's shuttle bus to Terminal 2 where your ORD flight will depart. Or you can take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and go through security in T2.


  • layover time
    May 29, 2014
    Hi, I am traveling with a child from Birmingham to Johannesburg. Both flights are with Lufthansa.It will be my first time at FRA. My layover is only 1 hour 5 minutes. Is this enough time to get to my gate. I am getting really worried it won't be enough time as I've heard you have to walk a lot, plus security checks etc. Thanks for your help


  • New Delhi to Frankfurt to Lisbon
    May 28, 2014
    Hi We will be traveling from New Delhi to Frankfurt and on to Lisbon. All flights operated by Lufthansa. Our arrival time at Frankfurt is 0715 and departure to Lisbon at 0915. Will there be enough time and do we need to go through security again? Will be traveling with young children so please advice on walking distance/time to the connecting gate. Thanks in advance. AG.


  • distance between terminal 1C and Terminal 1 AB gate no Z22
    May 21, 2014
    I amarriving fom Mumbai by LH 757 and then proceeding to Detroit by LH 442. Please advise me with the walking distance and the time required as I am travellling for the first time


    On arrival at FRA you will have to go through 'non-Schengen' foreign arrivals procedure: going through passport check, picking up your bags, going with them through customs clearance, then re-checking bags in & proceeding to your connecting gate. Lufthansa uses Piers A & B (A & B gates). Frankfurt is easy to transfer and signs will guide you. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. On arrival in Detroit you will have to go through passport check, pick up bags and go through customs clearance before exiting the terminal.

    May 16, 2014
    At what level is Gate B22A...I have to catch Air Canada flight AC 873 from Gate B42...can anybody suggest how far is both gate?


    From B22 walk towards B19, pass B30-33 and enter B41-48 (B gates look like 2 arms connected to the chest (chest B gates 30-33).

  • Frankfurt-Milan
    May 8, 2014
    I have 60 min to connect from Terminal 1 gate C16A (coming from Boston) to Milan leaving from Terminal 1 gate A24. Is this enough time and what is the fastest way to get there? Thanks.


    c16a is terminal 2, you will need to use the skytrain


    They are both Lufthansa flights so I assumed gate C16 is Terminal 1?


  • 70 minute connection is it doable & need basic instructions?
    May 5, 2014
    I have a connection this coming week at FRA, from USA, I have never flown internationally :( best guess is I need to go from Z69 to A 30 or something similar. I looked at some airport maps and am not clear. Any instructions would be appreciated. Thanks Anne 4/23 Z66-A07 4/24 Z69-A16 4/25 Z69-A09 4/26 Z69-A06 4/27 Z69-A19 4/28 Z58-A19 4/29 B26A-A30 4/30 Z58-A52 5/1 Z69-A60 5/2 Z69-A23 5/3 Z69-A03


    Where are you connecting to?


    Chicago USA to Budapest via Frankfurt. Thanks


    here is what i did, i deboarded and followed the signs marked with a big A. Voila. It was really difficult because an european A looks very different from an american A. But i made it.


    FOR SHERMAN ONLY. Thanks for your help Sterling. What does a German A look like? Thanks again Anne


    Not Sherman, meant STERLING. Dang Auto Correct.


  • Enough time??
    Apr 21, 2014
    My fiance will be arriving to the Frankfurt airport through Qatar Airways, then he has 2 hours and 20 minutes to make it to his next flight which is operated by US airways in another terminal. Will he be able to make it to his next flight and what will he have to do in order to make it to his next flight such as security, customs, etc.? He wont have any baggage to check in at that point. Thank you


    Yes that will be enough time for transfer. I suggest you open, click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    I dont think you will make it, especially with Terminal 2 being such a mess, transfering via Skyline and US airways one of the worst airlines (thank god they are gone soon). FRA transits are only manageable within T1.


  • Hi i am traveling from Banglaore-India to Stockholm
    Jul 4, 2014
    Hi i have 60 min connectivity time to catch the stockholm flight in frankfurt. will it be easy or what is the best way to reachstockholm termainal quick,


    Your arrival & departure depends on which airline you take. Frankfurt Airport is well organized and easy to transfer. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Hi Vinod, I am catching the same flight with the same route. Did you faced any problem in your journey to stockholm from bangalore. Was 1 hr was enough?


  • LAX/Frankfurt/Prague
    Apr 14, 2014
    Flying Lufthansa from LA to Frankfurt. Is an hour and a 1/2 enough time to connect to the next Lufthansa to Prague. What is the arrival terminal and any chance it would also be the departing terminal?


    Yes, all Luftansa flights are in the same terminal. You will follow signs to your departing gate and on the way you will clear Schengen immigration and pass through security. You should have enough time.


  • Amsterdam-Frankfurt-India flight Connection time 70 mins at Frankfurt
    Apr 4, 2014
    Hi, I am taking houston to mumbai flight which has a stop at Amsterdam and Frankfurt. The frankfurt layover time is 70 mins and the departing flight is at the terminal . Would this be a sufficient time ?


    Forgot to mention , the departing flight from Frankfurt is at the same terminal where the flight from Amsterdam gets down.


    What airlines are you flying? Were all your tickets bought on the same itinerary?


  • 1 hour 20 min connection time for 16 years old child travel alone
    Mar 18, 2014
    US citizen flying from Barcelona to Frankfurt on a Lufthansa flight. Have 1 hour and 20 to connect to a United Airline Flight going to Los Angeles, CA. Is this enough time for that connection?


    Actually, Frankfurt-LAX is a Luftansa flight as well, United does not fly that route. 80 minutes should be enough time.
