Was at FRA just yesterday. Arrived there on LH widebody international flight, stuck to deplaning in the rain at remote stand, on uncovered airstairs, to a bus, etc. So yeah, that's SOP in FRA, they don't have enough gates for the traffic. This is not likely to change for a good while.

The FRA new A-pier (A-plus) is currently under construction; ready maybe towards end of 2012, should help a bit. No real drastic improvements until when (if?) the new Terminal 3 in south side of airport is completed.
