I've got a friend who's flying from Newark EWR to Frankfurt on LH 403 on 5/13 (arrival on 5/14) and is continuing on to LH 174 to TXL on 5/14 - given that the transit is only 1 hour 20 minutes in FRA, will she be running into any problems?
I say this especially because the flight leaves out of EWR on the European bank of evening departures which are usually prone to ground delays, and when she lands in FRA she'll have to transfer from the non-shcengen zone to the shcengen zone. Do you think it's safe to do this itinerary without missing her connection in Frankfurt?
Also, because she's flying on a restricted ticket it's probably too late to change flights - is there anyone who can help me out with a seat assignment towards the front of the economy section of the LH B744 so that at least she can dart out of the airplane if it is delayed on arrival at FRA?
Are there any helpful tips you guys could advise so she she makes her flight? She's got a meeting to attend in Berlin and is kind of a nervous flier, so any help would be much appreciated I'm sure!
