How long is a piece of a string? Having flown Lufthansa over 20 times this year alone and 100s of times in total here are my experiences. If your carry on is large you risk a weighing more often. If the flight is totally full you risk a weighing more often. If you arrive late at check in you risk a weighing more often. In reality if you are on time and ...

If it's a single booking, your bags will automatically checked through to your final destination. You should be getting the boarding passes of both flights in Hamburg from the Kiosk and the baggage tag should show your final destination. See https://www.lufthansa.com/de/en/Checking-in-baggage for baggage drop off instruction in Hamburg More info on using ...

Yes. According to Carry-on baggage rules at Lufthansa For a smooth boarding procedure, more stowage space on board and a punctual departure, it is essential that your carry-on baggage corresponds to the regulations. That is why we check your carry-on baggage against the permitted dimensions, quantity and weight at departure airports. And from a ...

If your flights are on a single booking, check-in kiosks will generally always print baggage tags that route your bags through to your final destination. You can check before you attach the tag to your bag that it shows the airport code for your final destination in large letters. If it doesn't, seek help to have it retagged from the airline staff that are ...

Minimally, you will only need your passports, but ideally bring a printed copy of your itinerary that includes the PNR reference. You can go directly to a check in desk with your passport; there is no need to go to a ticket desk first. As long as your names were correctly entered in the booking the airline can find your eticket from only your name. Some ...

In the end it was indeed a case of overbooking. As a premium economy passenger I was offered the option to downgrade to economy for 400 EUR in cash. Economy passengers were offered to fly on the next day for 600 EUR. There were plenty volunteers for both, so I didn't lose my seat.

Occasionally. In my experience, it happens about in 10%-20% of my LH group flights (including Swiss and Austrian). I have a pretty big roll aboard suitcase which probably triggers more attention than a smaller piece of carry on. In all cases, taking out a jacket or moving something heavy to my backpack did the trick, but I always make sure I'm not ...

It means that you hold a waitlisted reservation in the current booking class, not a confirmed reservation. You are not presently confirmed to be on this flight. There is a waitlist per booking class; not per plane. So the airline might theoretically continue to sell confirmed tickets in C class while there is a waitlist for D class (the next lowest class ...

You can't. Please note that you may not carry liquids bought in duty free shops at airports outside the EU when flying from Frankfurt Airport. This also applies to any duty-free items that you have bought on board a non-EU airline.

What if I still check in the second person - do i get an empty seat next to me, as i initially reserved the seat? Not necessarily. Your boarding pass will say that you must board by a certain number of minutes before departure. Anybody who has not boarded at that time has their reservation cancelled, and their seat can be given away to a standby ...

You can't double dip. Your booking is always associated with a single frequent flyer account, regardless which carrier flies, markets, books or operates it. You can easily change it anytime before the flight typically until check in, but there can be only one at a time Benefits get credited after completion of the flight depending on what frequent flyer is ...

I emailed Lufthansa on Saturday. They emailed me back from the refund team on Wednesday, mentioning that I could change the payment method, while they will keep my ticket alive for some days. I do not know if the refund team would contact me anyway, regardless of the email I sent to customer relations, I had to call their phone center and provide my card ...

As carry-on luggage Most airlines have rules that limit the size of carry-on luggage (mostly so that it fits under the seat in front of you or in the overhead luggage bins). To make it easier to check, they usually state the rules as maximum length, width, height, rather than the sum of the 3 (as is more often the case for checked luggage). For instance, ...

With Lufthansa you can always bring a carry on and a personal item, as mentioned on the page https://www.lufthansa.com/de/en/carry-on-baggage. The problem is, that the part about the personal item on that page is not translated to english. It's the part under "Zusätzliche kostenfreie Gepäckstücke in der Kabine", which says Ein weiteres kleines Gepäckstück ...

Under the EU passenger rights regulation, the airline should have offered you both rerouting and the standard compensation for lost time (where applicable). If they didn't, it sounds plausible that you have a legal claim both for the compensation and for the expenses you incurred yourself as a result of their failure to reroute you. Typically the standard ...

Yes, you'll go through US customs and immigration in Vancouver (known as "preclearance"; source: US Customs and Border Patrol). That means that changing planes in San Francisco will be just like changing between two domestic flights. You don't mention the length of your layover in Vancouver; I hope it's long enough for you to get through preclearance. 50&...

I do not know of any web-sites with that information. In Australia Jetstar is notorious for using a portable set of scales on a trolley at the gate lounge. It is random, not at every gate lounge and not at every airport but I have seen it in operation several times at Gold Coast and Melbourne. If your carry-on, including any handbags or computer bags, ...

I20 refers to a "remote stand", where you will need to then catch a bus from the plane to the terminal. Munich Airports website confirms this, showing the plane arriving at "Gate REMOTE" : As far as connection times, Munich is one of (if not THE) best airport in the world for short connections presuming both flights are on Lufthansa, with many flights ...

I will assume that when you talk about frequent flyer miles when taking Lufthansa flights, you are referring to the Miles & More programme. Please edit your question if you are referring to other frequent flyer programmes. Summary: No, you don't receive the frequent flyer miles for the return portion. The FAQ on how frequent flyer miles are calculated ...

See Transporting animals as additional carry-on baggage in the cabin, especially "Specifications for the transport container": "The maximum size is 55 x 40 x 23 cm (22 x 16 x 9 in).". The container has to go under the seat in front of you, so the dimensions really do matter. 23x15x16 is likely to be too tall to fit.

Lufthansa considers powerbanks to be spare lithium batteries and thus they may be carried in your carry-on and only in your carry-on.

Considering the miles you get from a single flight is the same with both cards, either cards will maximize the number of miles you get for that one flight. When you get a more advanced tier level, some programs have a multiplier which makes a difference, for example getting 1.25 miles for each mile flown, instead of 1. The main point is not maximizing the ...

Contrary to what is written on their website, the correct answer to this question is Yes, you can. I was able to carry liquor purchased at delhi airport through FRA airport (on 2/18/19). It has to be in a tamper proof sealed bag.

You’re coming from a Schengen country into Munich and departing to a non-Schengen but EU country. Your itinerary consists only of Star Alliance flights (Adria Airways and Lufthansa). This means that you will be arriving at and departing from terminal 2 which is used exclusively by Lufthansa and its Star Alliance partners. You will need to clear exit ...

As long as you confirmed the reservation through the My Bookings page, and haven't made a completely new booking, you don't have to pay the reservation fee. More likely the credit card transaction, that you see is only a hold and not an actual deduction. The hold should disappear in a couple of days. If not, then you can dispute that transaction with the ...

Your bags should be tagged for Copenhagen and not made available to you in Munich. As you will not have time to leave the airport during your layover, head straight to your connecting gate, without passing baggage claim. Your entire layover should be in terminal 2. Arriving from an airport in a “safe” country you should normally not have to go through ...

It was not clear from the question if there actually was a self-drop counter for LH there (which in that case was out of service?) or not. Assuming there wasn't: One likely cause is "Not willing to pay for being the pioneer" or otherwise not getting the payback. Although I suppose LH is big also there. If you are (among) the first self-drop counter(s) on a ...

As other people said, you won't have to claim and re-check your baggage. I would add that I had multiple times short-time layovers in Munich, even just 55 minutes and I never had any problems, even when my flight had a 20-mins delay. Munich is a very large airport but signs are everywhere so you will know where to go and should be fine!

They might, but you should not worry too much. If it is weighted and goes over the limit and the check-in clerk does not let you "pass this time" you have other options. You can swap items form carry-on luggage to checked-in luggage. You can leave the desk and check-in later with some items in your pockets, etc. The best advice, however, is to check-in ...

I am assuming that you will fly from lufthansa: It is not possible to make a retroactive name change for a booking. Lufthansa provides the carriage service to the passenger named in the ticket only and only against presentation of a corresponding valid ticket that contains the flight coupon for the relevant flight, all subsequent flight coupons ...
