Q.

Can any one guide me about Frankfurt International Airport? I have to get a connection for Kolkata by Lufthansa Flight 750 departing at 10.30 A.M. and my United Air Flight UA900 from San Francisco arrives at Frankfurt at 9.45 AM. I have heard about long lines in security check there at Frankfurt. Somtimes UA flight arrives at Gate C and Luthansa Flight usualy departc from Gate B58. How I can reach the gates? and what happens if I miss my connection?

45 minutes are more than suffcient./ but if the UA flight arrives late, done worry, they will look after you and put u up on the next avialable flight to delhi. you just relax, if is the job airlines staff to ensure that u make the connection or to provide you with alternate connection

Woops you have a mad rush. My advise is to change your onward flifht and choose a new timing. Check here for details about the airport www.airportcity-frankfurt.com. Some airports are large and you have to make a transition from one terminus to another which at times takes more than 30 mins on the conveyor belts.

You have in fact a very leisure time to reach the gates and board the flights...missing kind of thing never happens, because sufficient alerts are also made through public address system time with required frequency of time...even if you miss your connecting flight for any reason beyond your control, you are taken the best care by the felicitation counter staff at the airport...so, make a hassle-free travel with pleasure...! All the best...!!

From one fllight changing to another you are expected to stay in transit zone of airport, what means you have not to pass full security check. For example your luggage that you checked-in in San Francisco you see it not before landing in Kolkata!!!

And if for some reason you miss your flight because UA900 is late go to the desk of United Airlines and they have to provide you with another flight and maybe hotel aswell if it is on the next day.
Can be that your flight to Kolkata will be anounced with little delay: nobody can predict what is going to happen in an airport...
Yes, there are 3 terminals A, B and C in Frankfurt, it is one of the huguest airports of Europe. and the 3 terminals are linked together. All walking distance and a lot of indicator panels like in all western airports... Maybe you hear already some anouncement of connections when just landed and before you get out of your UA900 flight. As soon as you get off the flight look to the monitors/screens to be sure which ...more

Before, you reach Frankfurt International Airport, in the TV screen all the connecting flights with Gate Nos shall be mentioned. What you have to do is that enquire from the cabin crew the exact location of the Gate and how to reach fast there. If the time mentioned by you is local time then you have hardly any time in your hands to move from arrival gate to departure gate. You might not be having a Visa for Germany, in that event it would be very difficult for you. Please check up with Lufthansa office at San Francisco to find out the solution, if the flight is missed.

Its very difficult time. Because of high passengers traffic in Morning. So better check for some other connections with minimum 2 hours break time. Moreover, they won't wait because both airlines belong to different groups.
