Will a 1 hour 10 min layover be enough time to connect between a flight from Spain to the States? Also, will I have to go through customs in FRA? I’m flying Lufthansa all on one reservation and will have both checked and carry on luggage. I’m a Grandma (though spry) and do not speak German. Thanks!
Will arrive on Croatia Air at Frankfurt Airport at 9:30 am at a gate in Pier A. Depart on LH at 11am from a gate in Pier Z. Given Pier Z is above Pier A, How dow I get from Pier A to Pier Z. Is there a security check? Approximate how long will it take? Thank you.
Just follow the signs to your departure gate. I believe coming from Croatia there is no security check. However, I don't know where you're flying TO so I can't definitively answer your question without knowing that.
What is flying "TO"?
Think I got it. NY,NY.
Hi just noticed my layover time is only 1.5 hrs flight from air canada from calgary (canada) always arriving late at frankfurt. we surly land at b gate (b40 or somewhere but for sure B) area and surely have to go C gate (may be c 16 or c 17) to take lufthansa. what are chances if i have 25 mins to transfer and reach this location? secondly do we need to go thru passport control and security again?Thanks
You do not have to go through passport control or security.

thank you so much for reply.
from Dominican Republic to Frankfurt from 2235 Cóndor, Frankfurt to Warsaw Poland lot 384 what is the procedure to make this connection, my passport is American I do not need a visa to enter Germany
If it's two separate reservations and you have checked bags you will go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, re-check them with LOT, then go through security and to your departure gate. If it's all one reservation then you just have to go through Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
thank you very much, it's all a reservation
I will fly from Krakow to Franfurt and from Frankfurt to Calgary.How much time i need to walk between gates from Krakow flight arrival to Calgary flight departure?
If both flights are on the same reservation you need at least an hour. If it's two separate reservations you'll want at least 2 hours.

Arriving on American and transferring to Lufthansa. Do I have to go through customs and I also have to get my suitcase from American and take it to Lufthansa. Suggestions?
Yes, you have to go through Schengen Entry Passport Control, claim your bags, go to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Lufthansa, and go through security (and Schengen Exit Passport Control if you're leaving the Schengen Area). You need at least 3 hours.
I am travelling from SFO to BHX with a connecting flight in FRA. Will 1 hour be enough of a layover and do I have to collect luggage or go through customs?
If both flights are on United/Lufthansa all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
How long will I need after arriving on an international flight from the States toget to the train station for long distance trains? Is there a map to help me get oriented?
