LH/TG NUE-FRA-BKK, short connection in FRA

Hello,
2 pax, travelling in F (TG award ticket), 1 hour connection time in FRA. Any problems to be expected?

Thanks!

I guess you are asking for LH147 as Feeder.
It will arrive usually short to 1pm at FRA.
TG921 will leave from there at ~2:25pm

As long as LH147 has no delay and the Sec.-lines at C are not too crowded, you are safe.
But there is no guarantee! Especially the later can be a problem.

I would choose LH145 even if it is way too early

Yes. Thai-Member Staff usually will greet and lead you at FRA as soon as you step out of the Bus entering the building. They will hold up a Name Board. Just follow the Transit. They will guide you (walking) up to, usually, C-Gates.

When you return to FRA, Thai-Member Staff will greet and lead you right when you leave the Plane and guide you through Immigration (Diplomatic Counter) and Security as well all the way up to (if you flight goes back to NUE) Sen-Lounge at A26. (walking again) .

No, the feeder is LH153, arrival in FRA at 8:10 pm, TG923 departs at 9:10 pm. :-)

In worst case, re-booking for next day would be ok, or would TG re-book on LH782 leaving on same day at 10:15 pm?
Thanks!

If your flight is in the coming days, LH153 is expected to arrive at 19:55 or 20:05 depending on the day. In any case, I would not like the stress of such a short connection. Late afternoon LH flights can be delayed if the aircraft has accumulated delays during the day. There are many other commuter flights before LH153, I would strongly suggest changing that flight.
If your flight is in a few months, you also run the risk that TG reschedules to an earlier schedule.

You may also review my TR:

US Envoy Suites (Business) vs. TG First [my first TR]

My inbound flight was late but Fraport (TG handling agent in FRA) sent a rep to pick me up from a LH flight - my baggage also made it to BKK and on to TPE - see post #2.

I've found your report, thanks for this very nice detailed read!

However you cannot be sure that TG would delay their longhaul flight just because of two connecting F pax?
