Hi - I am on LH423 BOS-FRA arriving at 0555 at the Z gates and connecting with LH800 to ARN departing at 0710 from the A gates. Is this enough time for this connection and will I have to go through passport control and/or security?
Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Schengen Entry passport control.
I am flying from Bangkok to Paris and am looking at a flight with a one hour connection. I am booking through united but my first flight is thai airways and the second Lufthansa. Will I have to go through passport control? Is this too tight of a connection?
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control and security in Frankfurt. It is a difficult connection but not impossible.
Planning on flying to Detroit from Brussels, connecting in Frankfurt. Flights are LH1005, and LH442. Google tells me this would mean I'm arriving at A40, and departing from Z52 50 minutes later. Is this enough time to make the transfer? The map of FRA makes it look like Z gates are a level above A gates?
Yes, they are on different levels. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying Boston-Frankfurt-Munich-Chisinau. I arrive from Boston in FRA at 5:35am with LH423 and have flight at 6.45am with LH92. Then I arrive in Munich at 7:45am with LH92 and have flight with LH1742 at 8.55 am to Chisinau. All flight are with Lufthansa. Will I be able to switch planes in 70 min twice?
I think it's possible, especially with the early morning arrivals.
I am coming in Lufthansa flight from Newyork to Frankfurt terminal 1 by 12.00 Noon and my connection flight to Doha is 13.15 PM by Lufthansa LH 634 Terminal 1. This single booking with Lufthansa. Is this time is sufficient to catch connection flight in Terminal 1. It very short layover. what is the on time record of flight LH 405. I will have check in bag upto Doha. How much time it will take change the flight. Do i need to go through Security check and any other.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. you don't have to do anything with your bag or do any checks.
Hi, I'm traveling from Belgrade, Serbia to Toronto, Canada on September 11, 2016 via Frankfurt, and have a short connection of 1 hr and 5 min. Is it enough time to switch flights? My 1st flight is Lufthansa landing in FRA on Terminal 1, and the 2nd flight us Air Canada taking off from Terminal 1. The flights are on the same ticket. Thanks
Tomorrow I'm flying from Berlin TXL to SFO via Frankfurt on Lufthansa connecting to United. I'm a little worried about my 60 min connection time. Does this seem like enough or should I see if LH will book me on an earlier flight?
It's back open now. Still a mess but by tomorrow it should be fine
