Flight Connection Time from TLV

We will be returning to the U.S. from Israel connecting to a 2:20 pm American Airlines flight from Frankfurt. I checked and El Al flight from TLV to FRA arrives at 1:00 pm. Are we crazy to plan a 1 hour 20 minute connection? According to the FRA airport website the two airlines use the same Terminal 1C. The only alternative is to pay twice as much for the ticket to go earlier in the morning ($1500 compared to $700 each) or go the night before.

Frankfurt and Munich airports have both been working toward a 30-min. international transit time. Don't know if they've made it yet, but I would think 1h20 ought to give you ample time.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as much as I know, if your trip is all written as one reservation, on the same ticket, you have no worry. Just as your luggage would be transfered to your next flight in FRA, so is the airline responsible for putting you on the next available flight if your ElAl flight is late in arrival to FRA, and you miss your conecting flight.
