Later this year, my girlfriend and I will be flying with Lufthansa on a transatlantic flight. To keep this question as generic as possible, let's call the itinerary A-FRA-C, with A (and FRA, of course) being within the Schengen area and C obviously being outside Schengen. Our ticket includes both legs (and the return flights) and it includes both me and my girlfriend.
AFAIK, with Lufthansa, you can check-in online 23 hours before the flight, which is also when you can pick a seat for free. My questions are:
- Will we able to check in both of us at the same time (as in, with one login to the web form), making sure we can get seats next to each other?
- Will we be able to check in to our second leg 23 hours before the scheduled departure of the first leg, or do we have to check in twice?
I'm especially interested in the answer to the second question (both for personal reasons and in general, since this would give passengers with a feeder flight an advantage when it comes to picking a "good" seat compared to passengers flying directly from a hub).
