It seems to be a cargo flight; you can find it on the Lufthansa Cargo website.

When you buy two separate tickets, if you miss your connection the airline won't help you. As far as they're concerned, your first flight coming in late is like your car breaking down on the way to the airport - unfortunate, but nothing to do with them. When you buy connecting tickets, once you check in onto the first flight, you're theirs and they will look ...

They expire after 3 years: Any mileage not redeemed within 36 months of the date of accrual (date of flight, start of hotel stay, time of car rental) will expire at the end of that quarter (e.g. miles expiring in August of any given year would expire at the end of September of that same year), failing other arrangements published in the Miles & More ...

Not strict at all! When I showed up to the gate with my dog in her soft-sided carrier, the Lufthansa representative didn't even look at it; she only asked me how much it weighed. The carrier I used was the "Bergan Comfort Carrier Soft-Sided Pet Carrier" in the "large" size. It worked perfectly, and fit under the seat without any problem. It also fit ...

First, your baggage will be checked through, and if you miss the connection, Lufthansa will put you on a later flight at no extra cost. Since you arrive early and there are many flights between Munich and Paris, it will probably be only an hour or two later. You will have to go through immigration and possibly security, but at 6 AM there probably won't be ...

This answer applies: No, you do not need a visa for going from the US to India via Frankfurt airport (or vice versa), as long as you stay in the transit area and have a connection in less than 12 hours. Lufthansa, emphasis mine: Indian nationals can Transit without Visa via FRA or MUC if holding a valid visa for the destination and a ...

Officially the "Minimum Connection Time" for United Domestic -> United International at SFO is 45 minutes, and as you're above this it is still what is considered a "legal" connection. However all this really means is that if you miss your connection the airline is responsible for finding you a seat on a later SFO-LHR flight. It doesn't mean that you'll ...

Since your reservation is a single one you are quite likely to have the luggage checked through directly to Heathrow. As far as SFO connection is concerned you may not need to go through security which will need to be confirmed with the gate personnel. United operates a shuttle that runs airside between terminals 3 and 1. The only thing is that United 930 ...

No you cannot except Basel (CH). The regulations state: to/from each of the more than 5,600 DB railway stations. to/from any German airport and Basel Airport on the entire DB rail network. Rail & Fly is meant for travelers that depart from or return to Germany or Basel. The train has to go to or from those destinations, either on the day of the trip ...

Based on what you've said, you are simply flying two legs on the same airline, booked on the same ticket. Given this, your luggage will be checked all the way through to Boston. In Frankfurt you will need to go through Passport Control (as you are leaving the Schengen region), however you will not need to collect your baggage - it will be automatically ...

Like most airlines, Lufthansa follow a fixed numbering schema for their flights. As per Wikipedia (in German), their current flight numbering schema, which they changed to in late 2010 includes : LH8000 – LH8515 Flüge der Lufthansa Cargo ie, Flight numbers between LH8000 and LH8515 are Flights for Lufthansa Cargo. As your flight number calls within this ...

No, it's not the same. Whether that's the case for a given journey will depend on a few details but, unlike the US, there is no blanket requirement to pick up your luggage and walk it through customs when entering Germany or the EU. Usually, in Europe, your luggage will be routed to your final destination and you will clear customs there. You haven't ...

This has been a comment, but was suggested to become upgraded to an answer (I also took the freedom to rewrite it slightly)… Back when I got through Frankfurt quite a bit, the minimal connection time was 45 minutes (from LH to LH flights). But that was before Schengen, and I stayed in the "international" section. As Ireland is not part of Schengen, this has ...

A One hour transfer should be enough at Frankfurt airport. Especially if your luggage is booked through, but even then it should be ok. There are some hints and tips on the airport website. http://www.frankfurt-airport.com/content/frankfurt_airport/en/transfer/faqs-tips.html The printed guide (on page 7) ...

Trying to be as objective as possible - your case will be extremely difficult to prove that the error was on the airline side. In a way, the airline can show that they did the utmost in order to inform you on the gate change Using the PA multiple times and NOT assigning a gate number at least 30 minutes before departure. (Was not on the screen) You can ...

Munchen airport is relatively small and it has no common transfer zone between two terminals. For you it means that you must pass the border during arrival. It will takes a time (it depends of amount of passangers). Say at least 20 minutes on arriving. Don't forget about queues on departure - 10 minutes (it's always full of people). Also since you fly by ...

Yes, that should be possible. Just ask for your luggage to be checked through when checking in in Rome. In my experience, it's generally possible to check through one's luggage if (and only if) both flights are operated by the same carrier. You don't necessarily have to buy the two flights in one.

Since this answer hasn't seen much love here, I'm cross-posting answers from the linked FlyerTalk forum post made by OP. While not an answer specific to Lufthansa, one poster states: Most carriers are extremely lenient with soft side carriers as they can be squeezed in spaces that a hard sided carrier will not fit in. In fact AA even mentions ...

Short answer: Almost certainly yes -- but double check with the check-in agent and then double check the final destination on the baggage stub you get. Longer answer follows. If you booked both tickets together then definitely yes, it'll be booked as a single journey and your luggage will go to Boston as there's no policy requiring you to recheck luggage ...

If the booking system offered the connection, it is doable. Also, if I remember correctly, LH is using the same terminal for all their flights, so you would not have to change terminal. The connection is tight, and there are chances that you won't make it. You will then be automatically booked on the next available flight. If the baggage makes it but you ...

No, you do not need to collect your baggage before catching your connecting flight. When you check in your luggage at the check-in desk at the airport, let them know that you would like your baggage check-in straight through to your final destination.

We already have questions about transfers in Munich, e.g. Is 1½ hours enough for a transit at Munich airport? Your situation is different because you have separate tickets but the answers seem encouraging. It's always risky especially if you have a long-haul flight in the mix and can't count on the airline's assistance. 2 hours is very short in any case ...

You will arrive and depart in Terminal 2 which was specifically designed for short transfer times down to 30 min. There are even extra cars which take you directly from plane to plane (via security) if needed, see: http://www.munich-airport.de/en/consumer/aufenthalt_trans/airportstop/minconntime/hcc/index.jsp Most likely you will arrive in Terminal 2, ...

You'll manage it, otherwise Lufthansa wouldn't have offered the connection. Since yours is a long-flight from Mumbai to Munich, there is a chance that you come earlier, and in reality you have 1 h. The only caveat is that from my personal experience, your checked-in luggage possibly won't manage to catch the next plane. Missing baggage after connected ...
