I thought I was going to have to get a paper boarding pass for the LH flight, but am I good to go with the BP in the UA App?? If so, that is great news!

Also, I've got a nice 3 hour connection which should be good based on everything I've read here. This is my first time transiting through FRA (I'm routing through MUC on the return). Suggestions? Tips? Advice?
Follow the signs for A gates where your flight to GOT departs. From US arrivals in Z to A you simply go downstairs and go through passport control but no security. The SEN lounge in A is on the way to gate A50.

Very extensive (& expensive) shopping area, but I head for the (semi-}serenity off the Senator lounge

Definitely enjoy the lounge, which will be nice (but probably crowded). I also enjoy walking around some after a long flight. FRA is nothing special, but it is efficient (generally), has solid lounges, good shopping, and is nice for people watching. Enjoy!

MUC, btw, is very easy to get around and is a very nice airport. One of the best in Europe. Enjoy your trip to Sweden!

Thank you! I get home next Saturday and turn around and fly to Warsaw on Sunday, through LHR on LOT... everyone thinks Iím crazy for flying all the way home, but Iím getting oh so much closer to $50k PQD... LOL, so hoping I make GS next year. The nice part is that I have a few free days in Sweden and 2 free days in Warsaw!

I'm impressed you're chasing GS and have never been to FRA

This lowly 1K probably transits there 3x annually.

LOL! 3x LHR, 2x YYZ, 1 HKG, 1 SIN, and a bunch of domestic (a lot of TPA-IAD). Booked travel through September has me at $48,000+ PQD and a bunch of new airports, including FRA & MUC finally!

A very good point, and I would also be shocked. But for some reason I have never found the routes through there to be a big PQD generator. Maybe it is the competition that keeps fares down. I've had the misfortune of visiting the palace of the bus 4x this year and it still seems Asia/Australia dwarfs it in PQD.
