Lufthansa

About Lufthansa

Lufthansa is the main airline in Germany and is the largest in Europe by fleet size and also by the number of passengers it carries. Having hubs in both Frankfurt and Munich, it has routes to 321 destinations in more than 100 countries, which results in more than 22,500 flights each week. It has been in business since 1955, has its head offices in Cologne and an operations centre at Frankfurt Airport.

Lufthansa flights are part of the Star Alliance along with such companies as Air Canada and Turkish Airlines, and it codeshares with more than 30 airlines including Air New Zealand, Etihad Airways and United Airlines. They also have subsidiary airlines around Europe including Air Dolomiti and Brussels Airlines which are based in Munich and Brussels respectively. Lufthansa’s frequent flyer program is called Miles and More and has 25 million members with more than 40 airlines as participants including all the Star Alliance airlines.

How do I check-in online with Lufthansa?

The Lufthansa check-in system is available for use from 23 hours before your flight is scheduled to leave, but closes one hour before departure. You can choose your seat free of charge and then print your boarding pass, or send it electronically to a digital device such as your phone. If you would like to pay a fee you can pre-book your seat before this check-in stage. Once at the airport, you can deposit your bags at the Lufthansa baggage drop desks or self-service kiosks before showing your printed or downloaded boarding pass at the gate.

What is my checked baggage allowance on Lufthansa?

Lufthansa’s baggage policy for transatlantic flights includes a free allowance of one bag (up to 23 kg) if you are travelling in Economy class, and there are different levels for each class up to three bags of 32 kg each for First Class travellers. European flights are different and only carry-on baggage up to a weight of 8 kg is included in an Economy Light fare. An Economy Classic or Flex fare, however, covers both this carry-on allowance as well as a 23 kg bag for the hold. Frequent Travellers and members of this airline’s reward schemes will be allowed additional baggage allowances on top of these basic levels.

As well as these weight restrictions, all bags must have a maximum size of 158 cm (when adding up width + height + length), and any baggage that is over the allowed limit of either size or weight will be subject to excess baggage fees. If you are travelling with a small child or baby, Lufthansa will also allow you to travel with a pushchair or a baby basket without fee. And disabled customers may transport either two wheelchairs or additional aids for mobility without extra charges being applied.

What hand luggage can I take on Lufthansa?

In every class except First and Business, passengers are allowed one item of luggage with a maximum weight of 8 kg, but in the upper classes you are allowed two items of 8 kg each. This can be a bag, small suitcase or garment bag. In addition to this, a small article of luggage is also allowed such as a handbag or laptop bag. The larger item can be up to 55 cm x 40 cm x 23 cm except in the case of garment bags when 57 cm x 54 cm x 15 cm is allowed. The smaller item can only be 40 cm x30 cm x 10 cm and should be placed under the seat in front of you.

The Lufthansa hand luggage allowance also enables you to take other items onto the plane if you are travelling with a small child or if you are disabled. Those with children are allowed a foldaway stroller, a carry cot or an approved car safety seat. For disabled passengers, allowance is made for mobility aids and this could be a wheelchair or orthopaedic walkers or rollators.

Regulations apply when it comes to travelling with liquids in your carry-on luggage. If you want to take liquids, gels and creams with you on a Lufthansa flight the easiest way is to put them in your hold luggage. However, if you would like to take some into the cabin with you, there are rules you must follow. No liquid must be in a container larger than 100ml, and all liquids you intend to take onto the plane must be in a re-sealable plastic bag. The bag must be see-through and no larger than 20 cm x 20 cm. Don’t forget that toothpaste, deodorant and even lipstick can be classed as a liquid, so make sure you have less than ten such items, and they all fit comfortably in your plastic bag as this must be shown to security on your way through the airport.

my flight from LHR to FRA on lufthansa was great. and the flight from FRA to malta was also good, but the 55 minutes between flights at frankfort was ridiculous ... i only made it because i ran the last two miles to the air malta gate where the desk agent said that if i had been twenty seconds later, i wouldn't have been let on. the distance between the two flight gates plus having to go through passport control literally took the whole 55 minutes with nothing to spare. at 71 this took me a half hour to recover from. this connection should not even be considered !
