I fly on Delta Airlines all the time. and on each trip my boarding passes always have my full first and last names printed on them, but my middle name is partially cut off (middle name is 'Jameson' but only shows up as 'James'). It has never been an issue at the TSA checkpoints when flying domestically here in the U.S. I'm flying to Germany later this year for the first time. Should there be any issue with this when going through the checkpoint in Frankfurt for the flight back to the U.S.?
My wife and I are traveling to Germany later this year. She has to use a CPAP machine and this is our first time flying internationally with it.. We've never had any trouble at security or the airline (we mostly fly with Delta and will be for this trip) when flying domestically with the machine. Am I right in saying that when we go through security in Frankfurt for our flight back to the U.S,. we should expect pretty much the same procedure with it as here in the States? Or is there, by chance, different procedures for things like that in Germany? Just trying to make sure we do things right as this will be our first time to visit Europe.
I will have connecting flights from US to Nice with Lufthansa. My dog is in the cabin and will need relief from 10 hour flight. Does FRA have an animal relief area and if so, is it in the terminal like DFW?
My 20 year old daughter (who has a torn meniscus and is on crutches) will be leaving Dublin (Lufthansa) at 05:00 am arriving in FRA at 8:00 am and then leaving (United) for SFO @ 12:54 pm. Will she have to go through any kind of custom control and is there an area in Terminal 1 (I'm assuming Terminal 1 for both arrival and departure) where she will be able to rest comfortably? I thought I could get her into the Lufthansa lounge, with my United Club pass but it does not seem to be the case.
All she has to do is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate since she is not entering the Schengen Area. That is correct - United Club day passes cannot be used at other airlines' lounges, even partner airlines.
do checked bags from US to TLV via FRA get transferred directly to TLV flight? Do travelers in transit have to clear any passport control? 1hr 30min connecting time sufficient if no inbound delays?
All you have to do in Frnakfurt if both flights are on Lufthansa is go directly to your departure gate where there will be Israeli security. You have enough time.
I am due to arrive on Singapore Airlines in Frankfurt at 6.45 am I have a connecting flight to Budapest on Lufthansa leaving at 8.20 am. Will I have enough time or should I book a later flight. ! am assuming my luggage will be checked through to Budapest. Will I have to go through immigration in Frankfurt?
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Frankfurt. If it's two separate reservations that is barely enough time.
It is one reservation....can I still make it......I thought I would take advantage of Frankfurt Airport's Gate to Gate Service.
We are flying from Rome to Dallas-Fort Worth on Lufthansa. The scheduled connection time in Frankfurt is 60 minutes. Assuming the planes are on time is this enough time to make the connection.
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there,

I am flying with Air Canada arriving from Tegel airport Berlin and have an hour and 15 minutes to transfer and catch a flight to Toronto Pearson via Air Canada. Do I need to collect my bags and go through security for this and is there enough time? Thanks in advance,
DT
Arriving on Lufthansa, have a 1 Hr 20 minute layover and leave on Condor to Seattle USA. Are the 2 airlines in the same terminal and will we have enough time to make our connection?
We also have the option of having a 5 hour layover. Would that be a better flight to choose?
Yes, Condor and Lufthansa both use Terminal 1. If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. If it's two separate reservations you need the longer layover.
Hello, I'm flying from USA to Frankfurt with Condor, then with 2 hours layover I have a connection flight to Moscow operated by Airflot. Do I need a transit visa to get to my next flight in Frankfurt?
Thanks.
What is your citizenship?

Unless you are traveling with no checked bags it appears you will have to transfer them yourself between Condor and Aeroflot, which means you will need a Short-Stay Schengen Visa issued by Germany.
