If I arrive in DUS at 2:15 flying Eurowings Is that enough time to connect to my lufthansa flight which leaves at 3:20 ?
It's all in the same terminal.
Update: My Eurowings flight is delayed by 15 minutes, which will only leave me with 45 min. to get to my LH flight in Duss. The 2 flights aren't on the same pnr, they were booked separately.
What are my options if I miss my second leg, due to the delay ? Will they rebook me onto other options ?

Forgot to add. I would be booking both flights via AA Awards over the phone. Not sure if that results in two separate tickets, or not.

Minimum legal connection is 1h 45min for that itinerary.
Your connection time is 1h 05min. 40 minutes to short.

AA would not book that for you.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Flying SQ next week from JFK-FRA which is supposed to land at 9:50AM. I am continuing on to VIE and have to decide if I want to take LH or OS flight from FRA leaving at either 10:50AM or 11:50AM. I have no luggage, just a carry on.

Is 10:50 pushing it? Is SQ usually on time? Any help would be appreciated.

1 hour in FRA to get to from the *A to the OW area? I'd say nearly impossible, unless you arrive at a gate (not a remote stand) early and are a sprinter. For a 1 hour difference I'd definitely go with the 11:50 flight.

Got it. Thanks. 11:50 it is. Even on a Friday. ;)

It's a 80 min flight. I think it'll be okay, assuming it's not delayed.

Definitely should be ok just figured if it was a super easy way to connect that its a waste to take the later flight. Happy I asked.

FRA is massive. We had a LH flight ZRH-FRA and AC FRA-YYC. Our flight landed 25 minutes late. We taxied 10 minutes to a remote stand, and only had a 70 min connection (or so). If AC hadn't send a bus to take the 9 passengers who were connecting to their flight directly to the gate (well technically to the passport control nearest the gate including a dedicated line just for the 9 of us, regardless of our citizenship) we'd have missed the flight.

100% dont play it tight in FRA.. Not a smart move. 1:30 + is ideal

Landing in DXB at 705am and departing AUH at 1045am. Is it doable?
