Wait times in FRA
 
Will be arriving 11/7 in FRA from LAX. Flying J . What can I expect in wait times? Any suggestions?

Itd be helpful to know what youd actually want to know. Wait time at immigration? Wait time for security control? (There is a dedicated thread for the above two)
Wait time for the luggage? Maybe for the train? For the connecting flight?

Yes, could be one of many things & a Strike day by UFO also ....

But the good news is that whatever you are waiting for (ie security, immigration) it will still be far better than what non-Americans without a priority ie Global Entry etc would experience at LAX or most US port of entry airports. Even as an 'other' passport holder the queues at immigration are not lengthy. Certainly no 2-3 hour waits have been reported that I have ever seen for FRA!

Luggage takes longer at FRA than at MUC in my experience, but I am usually first down in baggage claim so someone who does not use an EU/Schengen lane and who walks at a more average speed and perhaps stops for a break on the way may arrive just a few minutes before baggage arrives.

Also which dates are you talking about: 7th November or 11th July ? Summer season you might wait more for immigration for examples.

The wait time can be at least 10 in my experience, especially on a day in November :)

What are you waiting for???

Srklaw7 Nov 6, 19 11:24 am

Sorry for my vagueness. The 2 pressing issues are security and for immigration. I am flying J and do have global entry. It appears we are arriving in the Z read at a gate in the 60's. I am then connecting with TAP after about a 2 hours layover.

Srklaw7 Nov 6, 19 11:31 am

Yes I just checked and we are supposed to arrive at gate Z 62. so I have to clear immigration and security and get to a lounge if time or to TAP gate. I hope that information helps.

LondonElite Nov 6, 19 11:32 am

You'll be fine. GE doesn't mean anything here. The whole exercise should be under 30 minutes. There is a dedicated 'connecting in FRA' thread in the LH forum. You are on one ticket I assume?

The TAP flight leaves from either A or the Schengen B gates. If you arrive at a Z gate, you will not need to clear security, just immigration.

Thank you all. I know this is might be the wrong thread, but any recommendations on lunges , especially near the TAP gate. That sounds like an easy process.

If you are meaning NOV 7th you will not be arriving with LH... Unfortunately...

LondonElite Nov 6, 19 1:27 pm

You are aware of the cabin crew strikes, right? That aside, dont lunge at anyone ;) there is a business lounge at the start of the A gates that should work for you.

LondonElite Nov 6, 19 1:30 pm

Looks like LH457 is still scheduled to operate tonight.
