    Public Sector strikes at FRA

    by SandiM Online Now Mar 26, 2012 at 8:32 PM

    Ok I just heard that there was a public sector strike throughout Germany today and FRA got affected by this (Air Canada just listed the alert). Does this happen a lot?? I'm plannin to fly out of Canada on April 1 to FRA and then to SZG (same day) and I am VERY concerned on how long these strikes go on for or if they are random and for a few hours etc etc? Anybody got news on this? I wonder if my flight will be affected....

  • Frankfurt Airport

    by TaliaP Online Now Sep 25, 2011 at 1:34 AM


    I'm traveling to Europe from Australia in about two months and on the way back I'm flying from London to Phuket via Frankfurt. My flight from London is a Lufthansa flight that arrives in Frankfurt at 12.35pm. I am then flying with Condor from Frankfurt to Phuket on a flight that departs at 3.30pm. My question is in two parts;

    a) will I have to clear customs and immigration and collect my bags etc and then recheck in for the Condor flight or am I able to remain in transit?

    and b) if I can't remain in transit, is 3 hours enough time or would I be better off trying to get on an earlier flight to Frankfurt?

    Thank you in advance for all your words of wisdom, I've never travelled to Europe before so I'm a little bit nervous about getting it all right!

    Cheers, TaliaP :D

    I'll travel to Frankfurt for business the following week. I'll have two spare days on Mar 21-22 (Mon & Tue). My plan is to base in Frankfurt and DB or even buses to travel around Frankfurt to explore more places to see. I've been to Freiburg and Heidelburg during my last visit, and I've been to the Schloss Neuschwanstein too. That was amazing experiences for me.

    During this trip, I'd like to do the similar thing again, and explore more fantastic destinations in Germany.

    Can someone give me any advise?

    2. What are the budget airlines from Frankfurt to Rome? Is the Ciampino Airport is near at the center or in St Peter Square? What are the budget hotel or recommendable in that area. Is there anymore Things to Do aside from roaming around at St. Peter Square?
    3. I end up my tour at Paris on Aug.29, is it possible to take train back to Frankfurt. How long it will take? ? ?

    I'll be in Frankfurt for 3 days at the end of June and I want to rent a car for this period, preferably from the airport.

    Which company do u thinks is best? Avis? Sixt? or another company? as there are some scary stories running on the net about mishaps with car rental companies.

    Also, I'll have to make a one day round-trip to Lumxembourg. Is it ok to go with the rented car? as both countries are EU members and in the Schengen Zone.

    Does this mean we have to get off the train and hop onto a bus and where will this change happen. We will have a large bag each (20 kg) and wonder whether we will be able to drag these bags onto the bus.
