  • Enough connection time?
    Jun 8, 2016
    I flight Croatian Airlines from Split to FRA (Terminal 1) and leave 1hr 45 min later on American from Terminal 2. THey are on 2 separate reservations. American Airlinessays I need 1hr 15 min. I am worried though. Do I have enough time to deal with checked luggage/customs/terminal transfer?

    Have a group arriving on Condor and transfering to Frankfurt...issued two seperate we need to do customs, claim luggage, check in with LH and clear much time do we need to allow?


    They don't have the TSA in Europe ;) It's just called security. I would want 3 hours between those flights, although maybe a little less would be possible.


    Thanks...I used wrong word of TSA...let's hope the 3 hours works


  • 65 Min connection from Naples to USA
    Jun 6, 2016
    My parents are in ther 70's and not very fast. We only have a 65 minute layover between Lufthansa flights LH337 and LH438, both in Terminal 1. We have 8 travelers booked 5 and 3, but they are all booked from Naples through to Dallas, TX. Do we have to go through schengen passport control and/or security of any kind? I know we won't have to deal with checked bags, but wondered how hard this connection will be and if we needed to find assistance.


    You will go through Schengen exit passport control - you should have enough time.




  • Enough time to connect

    We will be arriving on Monday morning from Venice on luftansa. Will be connecting to an American flight to the US. Traveling on US passport have checked luggage. Will a two hour layover be adequate? Thanks!


    Are you on two separate reservations or one reservation?


    Two separate reservations.


    No, then that is not enough time.


    Thanks. We will adjust our plans.


    I arrive from Copenhagen to Frankfurt at 21.05 and at 22.00hours I have the next fly to Budapest. Are 55min enough to change fly on Frankfurt????


    Cristian, if both flights are on the same reservation on Lufthansa, that is enough time. You will not be leaving the Schengen Area.


    what if I am travelling from Asia to Frankfurt, and Frankfurt to New York on one reservation. and have a transit time of 40 minutes. will this be enough?


  • 55 minute enough for Copenhagen to US on Lufthansa for US Citizens?
    Jun 4, 2016
    Hi ZAP--First of all, many thanks for all the help you give to us worried travelers! Please help! Last year, we flew Prague to US with 1:15 min connection time and it was brutal. We were bused from plane to terminal which meant we had to go through security again and barely made flight--though my son and I ran the whole way. Guess I am crazy to try again, but I can get a great fare from Copenhagen to US on Luthansa if I take 55 min connection in Frankfurt. Do we stand a chance? No checked bags. Thank you in advance for any and all helps!!!


    It's not impossible. But you know exactly how difficult it is.

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    American passenger arriving in Frankfurt at approx 11:45AM on WOW Air and need to connect to a Lufthansa flight to Munchen at 2:15. Will this be time to collect luggage, clear customs and get to Lufthansa ? Thanks in advance


    You don't have to go through Immigration or customs as Iceland is in the Schengen Area. You should have enough time.

    We are flying American Airlines from CLT to FRA then need to transfer to a Lufthansa flight (separate itinerary) for a flight from FRA to CDG. We have about 2hr 10 min to go through customes, collect bags and then recheck them for next flight. Is that enough time?

    Canadian citizen flying from London to Split, Croatia with a 1hr connection time in FRA. Do I need to go through passport control and do I have enough time to make my connection? Thank you!


    You will not have to go through passport control since you are not entering the schengen area. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thank you, whoever you are!!
