Haved used it once, Frankfurt to Tokyo in June 2013 (don't remember what kind of plane it was). My usage is mostly the same as yours, and I had no problem with it. Actually, I had bought 24 hours of wifi access at Frankfurt airport for about 5 euros, and was quite surprised to find that I could also use it on the plane. (If you buy it on the plane, it's 17 ...

There is a lot of information about this on the Lufthansa website (ie; paid internet on 90% of the long-haul flights) see: http://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/Fly-Net My personal experience with any airline is that you are better off calling them because they are often dealing with older planes that don't have services like that and they tend to 'forget' to ...

I did this yesterday morning. Took me 32 minutes from the plane stairs (apron parking, so we were bussed to the terminal A) to exiting immigration and walking to a gate in terminal B. I can confirm that there is no security (and this would have been my main concern time-wise). As far as I can tell, you only go through security if you come from a non-...

Normally, the airline is very interested that you make your connection, as many others explained, and for most places in the world that would do. But especially Lufthansa in Germany has unfortunately a history of not caring much. Those connector flights are often delayed significantly, and arrive only after the international connection left already. If this ...

I'm not sure if this is still true, but I remember that I once realized that there was no airside connection from terminal A/B to C, which means that you will also have to pass through security, further cutting into your time. Also, the smaller aircraft more often get outfield parking positions, then you will be bussed to the terminal, which also takes ...

You will have to go through passport control as you are exiting the Schengen zone. This in and of itself can easily soak up the 1:40 that you have available to you. Not to mention the time it takes to cover the distance from gates A -> Terminal Lobby -> Passport Control -> C -> Gate 15 Now the good news is that everyone at the airport will know which ...

Well, if it's on the same ticket, operated by Lufthansa, they certainly expect you to make it, and they'll sort you out if you don't (due to delays or whatever it might be). For your own sanity, for a domestic-to-international transfer like that at Frankfurt, the estimate is around 45 minutes. So you'll have a bit of leeway around that anyway.

Doing so seems impossible before check-in but is no hassle at (online-) check-in. So I did call up website support and customer service of Lufthansa and Miles & More. Staff was not knowledgeable on my request and they even wrongly told me there was no chance to change the loyalty program selected during booking at all (but the same employee did take out ...

There are up to 4 fields that a booking can contain to do with your frequent flyer number: - FQTR - FF# used as source of a redemption booking - FQTS - FF# used for status, i.e. lounge entry - FQTV - FF# of account that will be credited - FQTU - FF# of account used to upgrade They're not all available, and even if they were, often the airline ...
