My wife is booked on a flight departing from LHR on Lufthansa flying into Frankfurt and then departing Lufthansa to BKK.

The transit time at Frankfurt appears to be just a little under 2 hours. Anyone have any comments about this, i.e. is it adequate time to change flights?
 

Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

She should have ample time; I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Thanks for the feedback. My wife isn't exactly travel-savvy especially when she's travelling on her own.

2 hours is plenty of time. Minimum connection time at FRA for LH->LH is 45 minutes.

The important thing for a first time visitor to FRA is to check the monitors for the gate for BKK flight (likely to be B something) and then follow the signs to the right pier and gates. It's a very big airport but reasonably well signposted. Depending on arrival gate/stand may get a bus ride to terminal, a short train ride between terminal piers or short or long walk. IIRC LHR flights arrive in non-schengen B part of terminal so most likely a short walk only and no security or passport checks.

Thanks for the insight, I'll let my wife know that it's no big deal.
