Traveling from US (DFW) on one ticket on AA, traveling onward to Croatia on LF with a 4 or 5 hour layover. What will our process be? I assume we will have to collect our bags and recheck as I don't believe AA will check them all the way to DBV. How long will that process take to go through immigration and passport, collect bags, check back in, go back through processing, and reach a gate?

2) In the event that AA would check bags all the way, then what happens then? Do we go through passport control or just transit to the next gate and how long will it take? I assume this will involve changing terminals.
I have a shortish connection time in FRA and appreciate an idea of the typical process based on my expected gates...

I'll be arriving from the UK. It looks like the arrival gate is usually around Z20 at FRA, and the departure gate (to Canada) is usually around Gate B40. So all in Terminal 1.

I was expecting to wait in line for security (1x) between these gates, and not have to do customs or passport control... Do you know if that assumption is right or will there be 2 security checks to go through (and/or passport control)? Should I expect to wait in line for passport control if coming from the UK and heading on to Canada - or just security between gates? Thanks in advance.
Oh I should note that my bags will be checked through. I'm flying all star alliance.
I'm connecting in FRA from LIS arriving from LIS at Gate A38 and departing from Gate C11 to SFO.
Do I need to go out and back through security? How long should I expect the transfer time to take on a Sunday afternoon?

We are on a LH flight from Spain to FRA on one ticket with LH, connecting to an AC flight to Toronto on separate ticket. Will we be able to check our baggage in Spain right thru to Toronto? We have 1.5 hours connection time in FRA. Thanks!
If you show your AC reservation to the LH check in agent in Spain you should be able to get your bags checked through to Canada.
