I am arriving at Frankfort Airport on UA flight 46 on Saturday morning at 11:40. I need to transfer to EgyptAir flight 786 (to Cairo). I am 73 and worried. I have 3 hours between flights. Should I rush? Any stairs? Do I take the train? Is there any staff to accompany me?
I only have 1 hour to connect in Frankfurt from Florence to Chicago, do I need to pass immigration in Frankfurt if coming from Florence, Italy. I hold an american passport.
thanks.
Forgot to add that I am flying on Lufthansa.
You will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control in Frankfurt.
Hi, I'm arriving from Barcelona on LH at 11:55am going to Chicago on UA at 1pm. I only have an hour connect time.. Do you think I'll make my flight? or should I re-book?
Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
need assistance
arriving from Addis with 6 hr layover then departing to denver
do I have time for day room at Sheraton
Wondering if we will have to go through security / customs when having a connecting flight in Frankfurt from Chicago going to Venice. We originally had 1.5 hours but now only have 55 minutes. Both flights are with Lufthansa. I see they have express lanes for security but we've never been before and want to have an idea of where were going so we don't miss our connecting flight.
You go through Schengen Entry Passport Control in Frankfurt. You don't have to go through security. You have just enough time.
I am arriving from the US on a Lufthansa aircraft with only carry on bags on one ticket and flying out on a Lufthansa flight on a separate ticket. will I need to go through customs or can I check in at the departure gate for my next flight.
Where are you flying to?
I am flying from FRA to RUH
I am arriving FRA @ Gate B23A and departing @ Gate B61
You can go directly to your departure gate.
Hi,

I have an hour long connection at Frankfurt (although looking at the flight statistics, there's a good chance it will be closer to 1.5 hours). Arriving on El Al TLV-FRA, apparently to Terminal 1 Concourse C. My connecting flight is with British Airways to LHR, apparently leaving from Terminal 2 Concourse D. Separate tickets, only carry-on luggage, and tickets pre-printed through online checkin for the BA flight.

As these are both non-Schengen, will I need to go through any type of passport or security check? Is it a long way from C to D, with the new SkyLine C station?
With carry-ons only I think you can make it.
I will be coming from Bucharest to Frankfurt at 8.10 AM by LH. I have booked my ongoing flight in a different airline with a gap of 2.5 hr. Will it be enough to finish customs, get my baggage and board next flight
What different airline? Where are you flying to?
Flying by Ethihad from Frankfurt to India thru AUH
Then both flights will be in Terminal 1. That should be just enough time.
Flying Lufthansa. Coming in from the United States into Frankfurt in June 2018 at 5:40 AM in the morning. Terminal one. Need to catch next flight to Athens at 6:40 AM. Terminal one. Enough time? Thank you in advance!
If the second flight is also on Lufthansa, yes, that should be enough time.
