Frankfurt Airport Review

by web-administrator (April, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) In the Lufthansa/United terminal there is only one restaurant with real German food--sit down only and no take away!! Imagine an hour layover with only frankfurters and a bakery to eat from! I wanted a wurst and the people looked at me like I had 2 heads! So to the frankfurter kiosk I went. The homemade kugle I got from a bar in that terminal was excellent!

Review sleeping airport Frankfurt

by web-administrator (November, 2014)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(email submission) Yesterday my girlfriend and me have to spend the night in Frankfurt a airport thanks to Lufthansa who screwed our flying plans. The experience however was really good. The terminal B is open 24 hours and you can rest on the chairs or find some of the benches without arms and sleep there. Some stores are open all night (Starbucks for example) and police and personal of the airport is always around so you can feel 100 safe. If you need more info, the airport provides a short but useful guide in the information points. Highly recommended Frankfurt airport if you need to spend the night.

Frankfurt Airport

by web-administrator (September, 2014)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(GUEST) Security here is way over the top; almost as bad as the US in attitude, but worse in redundancies. Really... You can easy go through two checkpoints, a random search while walking around, and still find yourself answering a barrage of probing questions to airline staff. This has nothing to do with 'security'. If anything, it certainly feels like everyone want some level of 'authority' to lord over someone. (FYI) I dress professionally, keep quiet, and travel often. This is the first airport where I've been screened three times and then bothered by United Airlines employees acting the role of security guards as well. If you don't like unpacking your bags more than two or three times or being randomly bothered with security and non-security personnel alike, find another airport.

A decent night's sleep

by Cybrie (October, 2013)

Where: Landside
Pros: Fairly empty most of the time
Cons: A few loud arrivals

I had a 24 hour layover at Frankfurt and I ended up sleeping in the C1 section on the first floor. I had wanted to sleep in the arrival hall but I realized too late that I couldn't return there once I exited. The chairs in C1 didn't have armrests and weren't too hard. I slept with my suitcase as a pillow, and I got woke up a couple times by a couple surges of arriving passengers. But after midnight it was dead quiet. I wasn't bothered by the police or security, even though they passed through a few times. Overall I had a good night's sleep, and the fact that I was jet lagged beyond belief helped a lot i'm sure.

Pleasantly Surprised

by nasromolla (July, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Airside
Pros: Seats without armrests
Cons: None

I had a 7 hour layover at Frankfurt after a late night flight so I wanted to get some sleep before my next flight. I was in the 'Z' gate section of the airport which I believe houses all the US destined flights. I walked around for a while getting a sense of the layout. I found an area of seating behind one of the shops between gates (around gate 56, if I remember correctly). It had almost no one sitting there and was hidden from the main part of the terminal by the shop in front of it. Perfect disconnected area for trying to get away from the traffic in the terminal. General announcements weren't too loud or bothersome and it was far enough from surrounding gates that there wasn't any distractions from boarding flights. Most (all?) of the seating is the armless type so I was able to really stretch out and fall asleep. Overall it was plea continued >>
