I'm flying to LAX from heathrow with a connecting flight in Frankfurt, will 1 hour layover be enough time to get my connecting flight?
If both flights are on Lufthansa, yes, that should be enough time.
I am flying from South Africa to Croatia via FRA, all on Lufthansa. I have a Croatian visa, but will I need to go through security checks during transit and therefore require a Schengen visa?
Security checks alone do not require a transit visa. Only border control does, unless you are a citizen of the few dozen countries that require an airport transit visa.
I am flying from Oslo with Lufthansa to Frankfurt and my connecting flight to Miami is also Lufthansa, layover time is 1 hour and 40 minutes. Date is 21/12 2017. Is the layover time sufficient?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from iAd on united airlines to Frankfurt and my connecting flight to Delhi is Lufthansa, layover time is one hour and thirty five minutes.Is it sufficient.

I am flying from Philadelphia on American Airlines into Frankfurt. The flight lands at 8:30 am. I am departing FRA to Hanover on Lufthansa at 9:50 am. Is this enough time between flights? Will I have to claim my luggage and then re-check in with Lufthansa? The flights are on separate tickets.
That is not realistically enough time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags and then transfer them between terminals yourself.
Traveling Atl to FRA on Delta. Traveling FRA to Split on Croatia Airlines. Layover is 2.5hrs. What is the transfer procedure in FRA? What is the minimum time I need for the transfer?
You will have to go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, Take the skyline or shuttle to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Croatian, and go through security and Schengen Exit passport control.
Hello. I already have boarding passes from Helsinki to Fra (Terminal 2) with Finnair. Do I have to collect my luggage and go to Terminal 1 for Frankfurt- Montego Bay. I have to check in my luggage. I have about 2 hours for this. is it enough time for this? When I have my luggage in Terminal 2- what is the best way to go to Terminal 1?
I think with checked luggage you can still take the Skyline to Terminal 1. 2 Hours is pretty difficult.
Thanks! But i need to check my luggage in at terminal 1. So can i still take a skytrain or you meant security check?
Yes, there is a skyline car that runs outside security.
Arrive on Lufthansia from Houston to Frankfurt at 8:40. Flight to Nuremberg at 10:00. Will I have enough time?

Coming into FRA on a UA flight from EWR transfer to LH flight to Aberdeen. The reverse on the return.
Am I correct that 2 hours will be plenty of time?
yes, that should be plenty of time.
And since US to UK with transfer in FRA, US passport,II will just have passport control in both directions?
Actually you won't have passport control, since you aren't entering the Schengen Area. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Aberdeen flight will probably be a bus gate.
Hi, I am flying from Washington DC (IAD) to Frankfurt on United UA989 and then on to Vienna (VIE) on Lufthansa with a 1hr 40min connection time. Will this be enough time? Will my luggage automatically transfer? Do I need to change terminals?
Yes, your bags will be transferred automatically and both flights will be in Terminal 1. You should have enough time. You just have to go through passport control in Frankfurt.
Thank you!
