  • landing in Frankfurt via Lufthansa and transit info
    Feb 14, 2017
    Will be arriving from Vancouver and transit to Johannesburg on Lufthansa flight operated by South African Airways. Are these type of flights arriving and leaving from one terminal. Or do I have to go through security ad passport control,


    Both flights will be in Terminal 1. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    No, you won't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt. You should have enough time.


  • Is a one hour connection enough time?
    Jan 8, 2017
    Arriving from San Francisco with a one hour connection to Naples, Italy, due to a change to my flight by Lufthansa. I've transited through Frankfurt before... it's such a huge airport and I'm worried that this won't be enough time to make my connecting flight, especially if I have to be bused in from my San Francisco flight to the terminal. What do you think?


    It's possible. It's not foolproof, but it's definitely possible.


  • Do I Have to Collect Checked Luggage?
    Jan 3, 2017
    I (+1 other passenger) am flying from Ukraine to Los Angeles with a layover in Frankfurt. If I check my luggage in Ukraine, will I have to collect my checked bag and go through security in Frankfurt? Have a 90 minute layover. Thank you!


    If both flights are on Lufthansa you don't have to do anything with your bags in Frankfurt - just go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hi, I am travelling Dublin, Frankfurt, Slazburg on the 26 December. I have 90 mins to change flights with 2 children. Bags booked through. I've struggled twice before to make this connection but this is the shortest time. Is this achievable.

    If FRA is the transfer site from Wash DC to Amsterdam, do you go thru security and customs? Looks like arv. Z gate and depart A gate


    You will go through Passport control.


  • Layover help
    Nov 4, 2016
    Is a 1:50 layover good enough for Miami-Moscow?


    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time.


    If my ticket is purchased through a third party website such as travelmerry or exploretrip, and if i am late to make the layover, due to the flight itself landing late, will Lufthansa put me on the next available flight? Or will I have to purchase a ticket again?


    Yes, they will still rebook you.

    Arrive from Houston to Frankfurt at 8:40a - Frankfurt to Barcelona at 9:50a - will I make it? Thanks


    If both flights are on United/Lufthansa that should be just enough time.


  • Will I have enough time to transfer flight?
    Sep 12, 2016
    I'm planning a trip to fly from Calgary Alberta Canada to Venice Italy with connection at Frankfrut airport. Would a connection time of 1 hour 30 min. be enough? Also, the return flight will have a connection time of 1 hour 10 min. Would it be enough time? Please help. Thanks.


    I think that should be just enough time for both connections if everything is on the same reservation.


  • Connection AA to DBV with 1 hour 55 min
    Sep 12, 2016
    Hello, We are flying on AA from Dallas arriving Terminal 2 at 0830. Is it possible to clear customs and make it to Croatia Airlines to Dubrovnik Terminal 1 at 1025. We do have checked luggage. Not sure if American can interline our bags to DBV. Is 1 hour and 55 minutes enough time if we must claim and re check our luggage?


    If your bags aren't checked through and you have checked bags I think that will be very difficult.

  • Connection in FRA
    Jul 27, 2016
    I am flying from Birmingham UK to FRA (Lufthansa), then from FRA to Toronto (Air Canada). My flights are both in/out of terminal 1. I have 1 hour 20 mins for connection. Will I have to go through security and any kind of other checks? Will 1 hour 20 mins be enough time? I have a UK passport.


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • connection with carry on luggage
    Jul 19, 2016
    We will be arriving in Frankfurt on a United flight and plan on carrying our luggage on. If it is larger than Lufthansa allows will we be able to gate check it or will we have to go through a check in counter?


    You will either be allowed to carry it on or will be able to gate check it.
