    We had very bad experience travelling thru Frankfurt from Toronto to Wroclaw and I just wonder what we should arrange to be transfer to business lounge for our waiting time over 4 hrs instead being stacked in the crowded waiting room.


  • LAX to FRA 1:15 layover
    Mar 13, 2016
    I am flying into FRA from Los Angeles on April 2nd and my layover is only an hour and 15 minutes... Am I going to have to claim my bag, go through customs and then board the next plane? Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Where are you flying on your next flight? Are all your flights on the same reservation? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without that information.


    Lufthansa - LAX to FRA to NCE all one reservation.


    You don't have to claim your bags, you just go through passport control and to your departure gate.

  • Tranfer from Delta to Austrian
    Feb 13, 2016
    Arriving in FRA on Delta from DTW connecting to VIE on Austrian. Is 1 hr 50 min sufficient? No checked luggage


    Yes, that should be enough time. Check in for your Austrian flight online before you leave Detroit. You will have to take the skyline train between terminals in Frankfurt.

    I have a Bangalore - Detroit Lufthansa flight with 1 hour layover in Frankfurt. Is 1 hour sufficient time to transit between the 2 flights? Should we go through security?


    You will have to go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time if your flight from Bangalore arrives on-time.


  • 1 hour layover BRU-FRA to FRA-PEK
    Jan 14, 2016
    Arriving from BRU to FRA and connecting to FRA - PEK in only 1 hour. Sufficient or better take an earlier flight BRU-FRA?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation it's possible but leaves no room to spare. If you can book an earlier flight I'd try to do that.


  • Transfer

    Hello, I just want to ask you about transfer between two flights. I will arrive on FRA airport (Terminal 1) and I have only one hour for my transfer to another flight to Arlanda (Sweden) - also terminal 1. Is one hour all right for this transfer?


    Where are you flying to FRA from?

  • Transit Visa
    Nov 17, 2015
    I'm travelling from United Kingdom (Manchester) to Brazil (Rio de Jeniero) through Frankfurt in Lufthansa Flight. My Outbound journey is on 24th November & flight &number is 'LH 947' which land in terminal one in Frankfurt and connection flight from terminal 1 to GIG (Rio de janiero).The transit interval is 1hour 40 minutes. My inbound journey is on 30th November from GIG (Rio de Janiero) and land in Frankfurt in terminal 1 in flight number 'LH 501'. The next flight is to Munich from terminal 1 itself - flight number LH 106 and from Munich to Manchester. My passport is Indian and hold a valid visa for UK and my final destination Brazil. To travel through Germany for this transit do i need a Schengen Visa or a transit Visa??. Please respond to my urgent query


    Am I correct in that on your return you are flying GIG-FRA-MUC-MAN? If so you will need a Schengen visa for that segment because your FRA-MUC segment will be within the Schengen zone.
