  • VCE-FRA-PHL Connection time
    Feb 18, 2016
    We are flying from Venice arriving at 0835 on LH our connection via AA to PHL departing at 1100. They are two separate tickets. Will we have enough time to deplane, collect luggage, clear customs, change terminals, check in and make it to the gate?? My thanks


    That should be barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You won't have to go through any checks upon arrival because Italy and Germany are both in the Schengen Area.


    Great...thanks so much!!


  • 55 min connection time
    Feb 19, 2016
    Arriving from HEL, departing to ZRH - both flight on LH, Termninal 1. Is 55 minutes sufficient? Thanks!


    Yes, since everything is within the Schengen Area that should be enough time.


    Thanks a lot!


  • no English ,no German need quick connection

    On March 21st connection between LH 1133 from BCN with LH 510 to Buenos Aires. Pls need instructions in advance. Passport control could be done in Spain? Pax does not speak neither English nor German, only Spanish. Thanks for your help!


    Schengen exit passport control will be in Frankfurt. Just follow signs to the departure gate and you'll get where you're going.


    Thank you very much for your advise, very precise. It sounds like is really on the other side of the airport and she has overweight and suffers of COPD.Any way to faster transit?


    She can request wheelchair service by calling Lufthansa. That might be the best option.


    Thank you very much

    I m going to FRA next april. My fligth will arrive at 3:00pm. I need to go to Amsterdan( fligth LH998, 5:20 pm). It's not a official conection, the fly tickets were bought separately. I' ll have enough time to take the fligth to Amsterdan? My tickets are business class.


    What airline are you flying on the first flight? Where is it coming from?


  • arrive at FRA from BCN and need to fly to Singapore
    Feb 16, 2016
    Hi, I will be arriving at Frankfurt main airport Terminal 2 at 9.35am with Vueling Airlines and I need to catch my flight to Singapore using Turkish Airlines at Terminal 1 by 12.10. Is the time sufficient for me to get my check-in luggage from vueling and then transfer to Terminal 1 departure hall? Which one is faster to transfer from Terminal 2 to terminal 1, by bus or sky line? Many thanks.


    That should be enough time. You should take the sky line.


  • Sufficient time for connection?

    I will be flying United from SFO to Frankfurt, then on Lufthansa to Marseilles with 1h 35m between flights. United is issuing both tickets. Do I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Sufficient Time?

    I am travelling from Manchester to Frankfurt arriving at 11.30 am. My connecting flight has now been brought forward by 3 hours which will now only give me 1 hour to make the connection, do I have sufficient time to do this? My incoming and outgoing flight I am informed are both at terminal 1.Do I have to pass through passport control again to get to my connecting flight?


    Where are you flying to?


    I am flying to the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana and then on to Puerto Plata


    If all your tickets are on the same reservation then you shouldn't have to go through passport control since you are not entering the schengen area. You should be able to go directly to your departure gate.

    I am flying with Lufhansa from Birmingham (UK) to Jo'burg and changing at Frankfurt. Has anyone got tips on what to expect as the timescale is quite tight.


    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive at a bus gate.

    Im flying into Frankfurt from Montreal, Canada to make a connection onto Prague. I realize I will need to get a boarding pass from Lufthansa transfer desk but will I need to clear customs with my luggage or will it be checked straight threw to Prague?


    I should note I am flying to Frankfurt on Air Canada then on Lufthansa onto Prague


    If both tickets are on the same reservation then your bags will be checked through to Prague. In that case Air Canada should also be able to issue your Lufthansa boarding pass.


  • 1hr 5min connection possible?
    Feb 9, 2016
    I'm flying LAX to FCO on Luftansa and the connecting flight is through FRA with a plane change, but still on Luftansa all in terminal 1. I have 1hr 5min to get connecting flight. Will I have time issues? Booked all in one through Luftansa as 1 ticket.


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Arriving from PMI Departing to DTW
    Feb 9, 2016
    I want to take flight BER7773 arriving Terminal 2 at 920am and then I'd need to connect in Terminal 1 on LH442 to DTW. I will not have checked luggage. Will I have enough time and will I need to leave the secure zone to make the transfer?


    Sorry, LH442 departs at 1055am


    Without checked luggage you should be able to take the Skyline train between terminals inside the secure area. You will have to get your Lufthansa boarding pass from a Lufthansa transfer desk.


    I cannot get my boarding pass on the mobile app?


    Sometimes for International flights you can't if the airline hasn't already confirmed your passport details.


  • DL 0014 connect LH 0598
    Feb 7, 2016
    DL 0014 arrives FRA Terminal 2 at 08:25. Will I have time to connect to LH 0598 departs Terminal 1 at 10:25. Since DL won't transfer luggage, can I connect with checked bags in two hours?


    No, I do not think that would be possible.


  • Enough layover time between Lufthansa flights?
    Feb 7, 2016
    I am looking to book flight to larnaca from Birmingham with Lufthansa the first flight arrives Sunday 8am and my connecting flight is 9am with Lufthansa again is an hour enough?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi I am travelling from Bangalor eto Frankfurt via LH755 and coonecting to Detroit flight LH442 with 1 hour layover time. I am travelling with Infant. Is 1 hr sufficient for layover?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Bangalore is on-time. You will go to your departure gate and through security.


    Thanks Zap. I am travelling on monday. So the queue should be ok to clear the security.


    Yes, it will be sort of just for that gate, so it shouldn't be long. They do a good job.


  • one hour connection
    Feb 4, 2016
    Is one hour enough for connection between ligfht from kiev to Frankfurt opperated by UIA and from Frankfurt to New York by Air France? It seems both flights are to and from terminal 2,not 100% sure


    Air France does not fly from Frankfurt to New York. Is that flight operated by Delta? Are all your tickets on the same reservation or separate? Will you have checked bags?
