FRA 70 minute connection from USA -Terminal 1Gate B19-Z62

I will have this connection in a couple of weeks and am nervous about it.

Last couple of days :

Connection in FRA Lufthansa Terminal 1Gate B19-Z62 & B17-A64

Is this doable in 70 min on flite from USA ?

Thanks !

FRA is a big airport - you don't have time to dawdle, but you don't need to sprint either.

I have made 55 min connections and missed 2 hr connections. If you plane is on time then 70min is ok. If it is not, all bets are off.


Most important perhaps is when is the next flight to your final destination. Lufthansa is good at rebooking onto the next available flight, but you should be informed of your options.

Make sure you have LH app on your smart phone set up in advance, or at least their FRA tel # so you can call them from the airport if you need to. Calling on the phone can be far easier than finding a service desk and waiting in line.

This is the gates they have used the last 3 days, either I was in error or they have changed. This still appears to be on 2 different levels, but maybe easier for me with only 70 minutes ? Thanks Anne

One factor will be if you connect to a Schengen destination (and have to go through passport control and security) or not (so you only go through security checkpoint).
So what is your final destination?

It's a fool's errand to try to figure out which gate you'll arrive and depart from. It just doesn't matter: your actions will be exactly the same regardless.

As soon as you get off your incoming flight, go to the nearest bank ov television monitors and find the gate number of your connecting flight. Next, look overhead for the signs pointing you to various gates. Follow those signs for your gate. At some point along the way, you may have to go through security and/or passport control. If so, follow those signs again until you reach your gate.

That's it, period.

If your incoming flight is on time, you will make your connection. If your incoming flight is late enough that you miss your connection, go to the airline's service desk.
