Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) ... located near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is the largest airport in Germany, and third largest in Europe, serving as an important hub for international flights from around the world. It is run by Fraport AG. The southern side of the airport, Rhein-Main Air Base, was a major airlift base for the United States from 1947 until late 2005. It is located 12 km from the downtown core. Frankfurt is a hub of Lufthansa, the German national carrier. Because of under-capacity in Frankfurt, Lufthansa divides traffic between Frankfurt and Munich's Franz Josef Strauß International Airport when possible. Frankfurt currently serves more destinations (265 non-stop destinations) than London's Heathrow Airport, but in terms of passenger traffic Frankfurt is third in Europe, behind London's Heathrow Airport and Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport.
Newest Review: ... see how you can allow such a high trafficked area, in the middle of summer, to get to a point where the toilets reek. You get slightly nauseous just going in them from the heat and stench, and on top of that it seemed as if the cleaners just recently "did their job" as well. The queues for the toilets (the women's ones at least) were also ridiculous. The passport check lines are ... more

I have just recently flown with Lufthansa, from USA to Croatia with a single stop over in Frankfurt. Considering that this airport should be the largest in Germany and third largest in Europe I was quite disappointed. At least when it comes to the Terminal B. We were unloaded off a plane and had to get onto those little buses which were the usual, open, stinky and stuffed to the hilt with passengers. While fairly easy to navigate, the toilets and the lack of AC in the Terminal B were absolutely dreadful. I don't see how you can allow such a high trafficked area, in the middle of summer, to get to a point where the toilets reek. You get slightly nauseous ... Read the complete review

I use Frankfurt on a regular basis as a transit point to get to Berlin. The airport is huge and you must allow a good hour to transfer here. If you are arriving at terminal A you face a good 10 minute walk to terminal B plus queue time to get through passport control. Shopping facilities are the usual high class shops where you look in and think of teh lottery winnings - does anyone ever buy from there ? Lots of duty free shops with wide range of spirits perfumes and tobaccos Bargains none at the moment due to the very strong pound euro exchange rates. If you are coming from Birmingham the transfer is by bus and you get a good sight seeeing tour of the airport good . Read the complete review

Frankfurt Airport must be one of the most depressing, boring airports in the world. It is rare for an airport to be architecturally inspiring but whoever designed Frankfurt airport seems to have aimed to squeeze every possible ounce of warmth and humanity out of the place. When airports like this one are to be built it must be like manna from heaven to the suppliers of grey marble. There are 2 terminals, Terminal 1 is the main flying hub of Lufthansa and the second terminal known with subtle originality as Terminal 2 is used by some of the other international carriers including BA. As those who may have read my review of Lufthansa will know I hate Lufthansa. ... Read the complete review

Anyone expecting German efficiency at this airport is going to be sourly disappointed. What they will get is the most inefficient airport management in Europe, plus abuse. On 7 April, arriving on LH from Moscow and transferring to Paris CDG, I was sent around full circle by the atrociously confusing signposting at FRA, trying to make my way to the connecting flight at terminal 1. To my great dismay it took me a full 45 minutes to find myself again at square one, in the same hall, in front of the same border control post that I had successfully negotiated before. FRA had been bad enough up until then: cancellation of onward flight I had originally been booked on, long bus Read the complete review

Has to be one of the worst airports in the developed world. Long line for toilets - I want to know who designed the restrooms. Hardly any place to sit in the A Gates. Most of the people were sitting on the floor.
