    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    DO I need a transit visa if I have very short stopovers in LHR and FRA while enroute to dEL?


    What is your Citizenship? Do you hold an entry visa or permanent residence to the US or UK?


    I am an Indian citizen.I only have canadian visa.


    Then you need a Schengen Airport Transit Visa.


    But i read on the uk and german gov websites that if i have a canadian valid visa i would not need it.
