  • Getting from A to Z in 1 hour connection to IAD
    Apr 25, 2016

    I traveled through Frankfurt 2 days ago. I arrived from Brussels (via Florence). Plane parked on tarmac and we were bused to A (stops at A1). The loading and travel time was almost 25 mins. From there I went up the stairs and encountered a huge line for passport control. I waited in this line for 15 mins before realizing I would miss my flight if I did not do something. In this huge mass of people, I got the attention of one of the Lufthansa agents that are posted in the front of the line for no apparent reason. You would think they might be there to organize the line based on flight priority, but no. They do nothing. I said my flight leaves in 20 mins, what should I do? No suggestions or offer of help. The other people in line, who were also in danger of missing their flights, said I should just cut the line. So I did, collecting others with me along the way. We got near the head. At that point I started directing people to the open passport control agents. I seriously worried about getting arrested for upsetting the order of things but there really is no order. If you don't cut the line you will miss your flight! If you are lucky perhaps there won't be much of a line as it was for me when I traveled over (larger planes can park at the gate which shortens the time). But the truth of the matter is you have to cut. What they need to do is set up some kind of queue priority based on flight time. But that should have happened by now. Even after cutting the line I had to run to gate Z22 and only made the flight by 5 mins. Ridiculous.

Do I have to go through security and passport control ... Do I have to take train or only walking .. How long it take? Thanks

     

    You will go through Schengen exit passport control. You should not have to take the train. An hour would be sufficient.

    I'm travelling on United from IAD to FRA and then FRA to DXB on LH. I have an 1:55 connection time in between the two legs. Is that enough time? It's all booked on one ticket.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do at IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Did you mean at FRA? I'm departing from IAD and connecting through FRA. Thanks

     

    Sorry, yes, I meant FRA.

    My wife and daughter are travelling from Bangalore to detroit and have one hour gap between two flights, is the time enough to clear security and walk all the distance from one terminal to another terminal

     

    If both flights are on Lufthansa you will not have to change terminals. you should have enough time.

    I have one hour connection in FRA, all booked on one ticket, but inbound to FRA with United, then outbound to LIN with LH. Is this enough time?

     

    That should be just enough time. You will go through passport control in Frankfurt.

     

    Thank you ZAP! Your prompt response is greatly appreciated!

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage or go through security in Frankfurt - you just have to go through passport control.

    UK citizen flying from Zuruch to Frankfurt then connecting to Manchester all with LH. Is a 55 minute connection doable?

     

    It's possible. It leaves no time to spare if there's any issues with the first flight or at passport control in Frankfurt.

    Hi, I will be travelling NCE-FRA-MEX on LH1059/498 with 55min connection time. Will I be ok? Thx

     

    It's possible but doesn't leave much room for any issues. You will go through Schengen exit passport control in Frankfurt.

    First connecting flight we have booked and are nervous 1 hour 20 min, is this enough time and is it less complicated than I think.

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

    I have a 60min transfer time in FRA between my flight from Istanbul and the connecting one to Washington DC. Can I make it?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through security and to you departure gate.

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation, yes, that should be enough time.
