I’m booking a flight on Lufthansa from Budapest to Frankfurt. In Frankfurt, we have a 3hr layover before connecting to a United flight back to States. Bags have to be retrieved from Lufthansa and rechecked on United. Both airlines in same terminal and there’s a “fast lane” for quick access to flight when time is short. Do you think 3hrs is enough time to collect bags, recheck, go through passport check and security before our flight? Never traveled on separate tickets before and these are the only flights that work for us unless I want to waste a night staying over at the Frankfurt airport. Lufthansa agent said I can ask at Budapest airport to have bags checked all the way through, but there’s no guarantee.
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.
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.
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
