Help! Need to book flights today. Is this enough time in Munich airport?

I'm looking at a flight from Philadelphia on US Air into Munich which lands at 9:00 am on a Monday late June and then taking a Lufthansa flight to Marseille which leaves at 10:45. I'm thinking the timing is too close for comfort.

Munich airport experts, please help! Tell me if I am crazy to book this.

I think that is enough time at any airport, anywhere.

1 hour 45 minutes is enough. Both flights will use the same terminal building.
After landing and passport control and security, you will simply go one level down to the Schengen level of Terminal 2 for your connecting flight to Marseille.
If, against all odds, you should be in a hurry, use the shortest line at passport control, regardless of EU vs non-EU citizens designation. The officers don't care.

1h45m should be enough time, IF you arrive on time. I flew to Munich (final destination) a year ago. After I bought my tickets I started watching the arrival times for USAir in Munich on their website. For the next two months they averaged about 1½ hours late, but my flight arrived on time. However, there are probably lots of flights from Munich to Marseille, so if USAir gets in late, they'll probably put you on a later flight.

Ops! That's 1-1/2 hours late. I guess this site doesn't recognise HTML '&' codes.
