Chicago to Krakow via Franfurt and Munich - Meet up Questions

Jump to last reply

A group of us are flying from Chicago to Krakow, a few via Frankfurt and a few via Munich. As this is all on the same ticket we expect to check luggage through to our final destination, and since both Germany & Poland are Schengen countries I blelieve both parties will have to go through customs at the point of entry (i.e. Frankfurt or Munich), am I correct on this?

I'm trying to make this as painless and unintimidating as I can for the both sides, and map out for them what to expect. I think I'm correct with "land in Frankfurt/Munich, proceed through Immigration, get back into the security line to check in for connecting flight to Krakow. In Krakow wait by later arriving flights gate in the Lufthansa terminal"; is this what the two separate parties should agree to?

Only 1 person in the party (that would be me), travels internationaly on a regular basis (usually direct). When both parties arrive in Krakow, from two different cities but on the same airline (Lufthansa), will we be able to remain in the gate area and regroup before we proceed to baggage then customs?

Thanks for your help - never did a rendevous before and I want to ensure there are not frightening surprises for either party.
