45 Minute Connection Time At HAM?

Wed May 30, 2007 6:42 pm

Hi all

I have as above a 45 minute connection in HAM on Friday on AB arriving from MAN at 14:30 and departing to ZRH at 15:15 i was wondering will HAM be good to connect through at that time or will i have a possible missed connection on my hands?

Thanks in advance

HAM is one of the easiest airports in Europe to connect, and 45 minutes should be plenty. Sometimes those immigration queues can get a bit nasty though...

Enjoy your flight.

Hi
You shouldnt have any problems. Mind you I am speaking regarding my flights with Lufthansa.

I flew MAN-FRA-ATH and the time at FRA was a 20min to get to the aircraft due to late arrival from MAN by 1hr. Lufthansa had someone at the gate wait for us and take us to the aircraft via customs in a hurry. We boarded he next aircraft and I felt the draft from the door closing behind me and the announcement "Boarding Complete".

However even though we made it to Athens on our connecting flight, unfortunately our luggage didnt. Lufthansa gave us an overnight pack and our luggage arrived 6 hrs later on the next flight then taxi to our hotel. Thats what I call service.

Our tickets cost us £215 each return from MAN-FRA-ATH-MUC-MAN.

we also only had 20mins on returning via Munich. We had the same routine again with someone waiting but this time our luggage made it through
