Frankfurt Airport is 7 miles from the center of Frankfurt am Main. View on Map.
There is a train stop located in the basement of the airport that offers immediate and quick access to both ICE high speed trains and regional trains that can take you all over Germany and straight into the heart of Frankfurt. The Central Train Station is easily reached within twenty minutes on any number of trains departing from the airport stop. Along with trains, there are also bus and taxi options available.
Children can play pirate or explore space at Frankfurt Airport’s many themed children’s playgrounds, located in both Terminals 1 and 2. Additionally, there is a complimentary stroller service for parents who checked their strollers prior to their flight.
Aside from the complimentary movie options, there are also “Gaming Worlds” interspersed throughout Terminal 1. Here, visitors can play classic arcade games or interactive projector-based games both on their own and against other travelers. Additionally, there are “Entertainment Gates,” where visitors can catch a behind-the-scenes look into the work that keeps Frankfurt Airport running.
Frankfurt Airport has extremely extensive restaurant and dining options available; however, it is important to note that the majority of the options are pre-security and in the main terminals rather than post-security by the gates. By the gates, the food choices are largely limited to convenience store options.
Pros: NOTHING. My experience won't fit in the negative comments, so I'm starting it here. (1/4) We had a 21 hour layover in Iceland, so we left the airport for the night. The next morning, on our way to the airport, we tried to check-in online, but the online check-in service was not working. We arrived about two hours before our scheduled departure and had to wait in a long line since the online check-in service was not working. We checked our bags and ran into our first unfortunate encounter with the airport staff. He sent my friend's bags through, without checking the weight. When he weighed my bag, he then noticed that the first bag sent through was overweight, and mentioned that he had made a mistake. He decided to weigh both our bags together as one entity (to equal 88 lbs.) and made me empty out my suitcase of the extra weight from not only my single bag, but the extra weight from the first bag, as well. He said it was too late to retrieve the first bag, so my friend and I had to divvy up my stuff between our carry on bags. Had we known the first bag was overweight, we would have been able to easily taken stuff out of our OWN suitcases and into our OWN carry ons. Which would have been helpful for what was to come... We then walked through the foodcourt to buy some overpriced snacks for the plane. When we decided it was time to go to our gate, we passed a horrifically long line of people that we assumed couldn't be the line to get through customs, because the last few times we had been at this airport, there was always a maximum of 20 people in line. Once we realized that this line was for customs, we asked an employee working the line if we'd be able to make our flight on time if we had to wait in this line. He said not to worry, that we would be okay, because all of the airlines were notified of the unexpected delay at customs. We patiently waited in this line, and as soon as we were through, ran to our gates. At this point, we knew we were going to JUST miss the time for the gate to close, but were consoled by the fact that the employee at customs had told us that the airlines were notified that some of us would be late arriving due to the unexpected delay and line. We arrived at the gate, and the airport staff working the gate laughed in our faces and told us it was too late. They said they never heard from anyone about any delays at customs, and that the transportation bus to the airplane had left ten minutes ago. "Too bad!" they said. How could it have left ten minutes prior, if the gate said it had closed only a few minutes before we arrived? A lie. We asked about our luggage.
Cons: (2/4) They said that they would notify the plane, and the bags would be taken off, and that we could find them at baggage claim. So let me get this straight - the plane can wait for someone to sift through all of the baggage, find our bags, and remove them from the plane, but wouldn't allow us to take the probably less time to just get on the plane? We asked if there was anyone from WOW that we could speak to, and they pointed us in the direction of another gate. Once we got to that area, there was another group of people that also missed their flight due to the unexpected line at customs. They were speaking with a lady who was telling them that no one from WOW was at the airport, they all went home for the day. We also attempted to talk to this lady, but she was in a hurry to leave for the day, as well, and was very dismissive and talked to us in passing. On our way to baggage claim, we passed customs, which by this time, had no line. We spoke to three people that were standing in that area, and were looking for the guy who told us that our plane was notified of the delay. He was no longer around, but the staff standing there had said that they were unsure why we were told that any aircrafts were notified of delays because that was not true, and that they also were not even ALLOWED to tell travelers this information. So.... the guy that we spoke to in the customs line lied to my face, and was not even allowed to tell us what he did. This infuriates me for MANY reasons. If I had known that we would not make it through the customs line in time, I would have politely asked other travelers towards the front of the line if we could pass them. Most people are very nice, and would of course let us in front of them. I know I would have done that for someone. But instead, since a KEF AIRPORT STAFF told me that MY PLANE WAS NOTIFIED OF THE DELAY, I patiently waited in line. Yet another lie. We finally got to baggage claim, and spoke with one of the employees there. He told us that he was not aware of any bags coming back in, but it usually takes about 30 mins. At this point, it probably had already been that long, but my friend waited anyways. Meanwhile, I went back to the check-in area to see if there was anyone available to talk to about the circumstances, or if there was another flight we could get on because both my friend and I had to work the next day. There was no one anywhere, except for at the the Icelandair counter. The woman I spoke to there was very nice (shocker), but there was nothing she could do, that all of the flights leaving the airport to the US for the rest of the day had just closed their time for purchasing tickets. If we had not been lied to and if the staff had not been rude and pointing us in all different directions, I probably could have gotten us on a flight out that night. But yet again, we JUST missed the mark due to being misinformed and mistreated by the airport staff.
Pros: Price was very inexpensive, crew was polite and efficient and our flights were on time. Airport in Iceland seems new and hip, but is small.
Cons: No entertainment, but that’s how they keep costs low. Seating was not incredibly clean.
Pros: WOW airlines canceled my flight and won't refund my money
Cons: WOW airlines canceled my flight and won't refund my money
Pros: No frills budget carrier, mostly exactly as I expected.
Cons: If you overbuy luggage allowance, there is no way to undo it, even within 24 hours. I made a mistake, thinking I needed to purchase more luggage, recognized my mistake right away, and still ended up paying for luggage allowance I didn't need.
Cons: Poor customer service
Pros: Leg room. Help with connecting flight.
Cons: Good was ok. Could have been better
Cons: Again contact to customer service ahead of the flight was impossible I sent 3 messages about travel with ESA dog and got no response
Pros: All good
Cons: Boarding slightly convoluted but ok
Cons: Seats do not recline on this plane.
Pros: On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service.
Cons: All was perfect! Thank you.
Pros: Friendlier and much more helpful crew and decent though a bit lacking snack
Cons: No free entertainment. No free headphones. Slow baggage claim operation at the final destination. Very Uncomfortable seats. Messy boarding
Pros: The direct flight from PHX to FRA
Cons: pretty much everything about this experience. To start, the agents and online chat customer service were extremely rude and unhelpful, even after calling several times and waiting up to an hour on hold. At one point i expressed my frustration and answer i got was "I'm sorry you feel that way". No sympathy what so ever. On the flight -the seats were horrible and food was disgusting.
Pros: The plane didn't fall out of the sky. But that's about all I can say on a positive note.
Cons: Plane departs and arrives late. Crew extremely disorganized. Did not give clear direction to passengers. My "upgraded legroom" seats turned out to be a walkway to and from the restrooms which were right in front of me. I was constantly bothered with other flyers waking me and disturbing me as they used this walkway.
Cons: No assigned seats for a family of four with kids? No movies unless you had cash (their Visa machine wasn’t working)
Pros: The pasta lunch was very good! The cold sausages later.....hmmm not so much! Our seats were very comfortable and there was plenty of room in the overhead bins which was really nice! They did a great job of keeping us abreast of why our flight was running late, that was much appreciated! The steward on my side was just "OK", but the gal on the otherside was FABULOUS! She smiled and made eye contact with each person as she passed them a drink.
Cons: I felt there could have been more options for entertainment. I realize you could purchase a premium package, but for a 9 hour flight I think they could provide free a few more options for shows or movies. even the music options were very limited.
Cons: Lost my luggage
Pros: Great crew and food! Loved the comfort.
Cons: The selection of movies could be better. There wasn't a lot to choose from.
Pros: Seats offered decent space and crew was nice.
Cons: I called the airlines and requested a special meal, and was only provided it one-way so was left unable to eat anything. Water was free, but would only give you small amounts and was very infrequent. Waiting in the queue to check luggage took over an hour. There were only a few attendants, and at one point all attendants left except for the one that was checking in flight attendants. Awful.
Pros: Left on time.
Cons: Everything else. Utterly confusing answers to questions.
Pros: Good price , good career
Pros: Thre movie selection was great The crew was great Some of the food (in each meal) was good
Cons: Parts of each meal were great, parts were gross $4 for a can of soda? Really???
Cons: SFO-Copenhagen was cancelled. Only hint for that came from Kayak which I didn't even use for booking (I used Flyus). Sas and Flyus didn't notify us and sas customer service had to actually use 5 min to verify that flight was cancelled after we called them. That left some poor rebooking options. Anyway, I am very disappointed how Sas didn't notify us. It would have been even nastier if we had got to the airport before realizing that flight was cancelled.
Pros: great service flight was on time luggage was on time
Pros: For a middle seat, it wasn’t bad
Cons: The seat I selected was changed. I selected 45C and was assigned 54 E Upon check-in. Why? An aisle seat vs middle seat when I paid full faire is unacceptable. Also it was not made clear that I would have had to pay to check luggage. $120??!!!! I always carry on and this could have been easily avoided by not bringing gifts. Again, $120?!!!!! On top of an $1100 flight? You have to be kidding me.
Pros: Loved the service. Nice small plane. Very easy boarding. This is a quick inter-city flight. The plane is small and agile. It did some pretty nimble turns and sharp banking that might be a little too exciting for some.
Pros: Got In ahead of schedule
Cons: The boarding process
Pros: Thw crew were amezing, with a lot of patient. The entertainment was graet. The seats were graet.7;
Pros: The crew was excellent.My only complaint was as we were sitting in row 54 the crew made too much noise during sleeping time.Other than that they were very helpful and very nice.It was our first time flying Iberia.It was very enjoyable.I will be happy to recommend bthem.
Cons: Poor boarding process
Cons: Will never fly Iceland air again. N Horrible customer service
Pros: Great entertainment options on the plane, very clean plane
Cons: It was much too hot on the plane.
Pros: Everything was punctuated!
Cons: It was a long flight so they should give a snack or something to eat!
Pros: It got me to Iceland!!! The crew was courteous when asked but really quiet otherwise.
Cons: Maybe because it was an over night flight, the crew was very quiet and for 9 hours, only offered refreshments twice, and food choices could have been better. And really no leg room, even for my short legs. Didn’t move my seat back for 9 hours cuz I could feel the knees of the person behind.
Pros: Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air.
Cons: We had a 5 hour flight and they didnt serve snacks of food. The flight didnt include bags. 2 bags cost $160
Pros: Crew was good, seats were good.
Cons: Barely made connection because we were late landing.
Pros: Good service, entertainment screen were good. Food was good.
Pros: The crew, the seats, the food, the overall experiencience were amazing
Cons: Better headphones
Pros: Crew was good. Cramped seating as usual.
Cons: Extra seat leg and knee room like 4 more inches would make all the difference in the world.
Cons: British Airways lost my ski bag. I had plenty of time with connections and feel there was no excuse. I had to wait in line over 30 minutes to report, thus missing my train. I'm 4 hours behind in travel and who knows when my ski bag will show up. I am very upset.
Pros: Attendant was friendly and efficient.
Cons: No beverages or snacks.
Pros: Crew was very attentive and friendly
Cons: Boarding could be better.
Cons: The seats were incredibly hard and uncomfortable.
Pros: The ctew was awesome, super sweet and very acomodating
Cons: Its a flight to WV (my birth place).... it is what it is... smll planes, tight quarters and people who don’t get any of that and are not happy anout any of it
Cons: Everything was excellent.
Cons: Delayed first leg, missed connection 3 hours delayed AND they lost my baggage
Pros: Got me where I wanted on time
Cons: Toilet was disgusting, crew spoke over the pa and could not understand a thing, entertainment was an old in the back of the seat player very slow and bad picture. Breakfast was a piece of bread.
Cons: They didn’t even give water without charging for it. Water is a basic need The hidden baggage fees. I was informed at checkin that I wasn’t allowed a checked bag from Amsterdam via Madrid to Miami. It is the first time I have ever flown internationally where you don’t get 1 bag at least to check in. The. The fee was €150 one way to check a bag. I feel that the airport should have disclosed more clearly that the fair did not include luggage. I can understand for some short haul flights people can choose to take luggage but international long haul is just heap and dishonest
Pros: The plane was large and the seats very confy.
Cons: The AirEuropa App, doesn’t work very well with IPhone, getting constantly error signs. I decided to change my seat after getting the boarding pass, but it was impossible. The app didn’t allow me.
Pros: The price!
Cons: Never on time!
Pros: I liked the window seat.
Cons: They didn’t talk much about the landing card.
Pros: Kindness of the staff, quick check in, wonderful healthy food, my seat and overall experience.
Cons: Limited controls on the entertainment.
Pros: blueberry juice, service and friendliness
Cons: no choice of food, little space between the seats, touchscreen and headphones didn't work, for over 8 hours flight this was significant set back
Pros: The crew were helpful, pleasant and professional
Cons: There wasn't anything we actively didn't like. It was a good flight.
Pros: clean planes, timely service, nice flight attendants
Cons: no power outlets narrow selection of juices/water on the plane
Pros: I liked the food
Cons: Crew could have been more available. Once we took off, rarely to be seen.
Pros: The Air Canada Rouge crew was young, efficient & courteous; seats were good; and it was the only direct flight that I can get that day, at a convenient time during the daytime.
Cons: Better entertainment ( u can only get them streamed to your own device), and maybe a bit better food.
Cons: Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause.
Pros: I was only a few minutes late and was not allowed to check in my bag or to board the flight.
Cons: They could have let me board!!
Cons: Not enough washrooms for # of people. Denied us of from WR. Food carts blocked WR access to most people for long periods of time.
Pros: The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows.
Cons: The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare.
Pros: Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !
Cons: It was perfect !
Pros: The flight was smooth and on time. The flight crew did everything alright.
Cons: Connecting flights. All lies, no cooperation. Not a small airport as it takes nearly half an hour to get to Gate E. Too few characters allowed to explain all we went thru.
Pros: Crew was kind and gracious.
Cons: Hand carry was checked 3 different times. Goes to show that Swiss staff doesn’t trust its colleagues to determine if the bag passes muster.
Cons: Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore
Pros: The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service
Cons: Virtually everything
Cons: 4 hour plane availability delay - of course planned on weather but not planning
Pros: Nothing-never made it.
Cons: 3 flight cancellations.
Cons: It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here
Pros: Beautiful plane, new, very comfortable.
Cons: Two hour delay in taking off.
Cons: Everything! Flight was cancelled, only could get us on another flight 3 days later then that flight was delayed! Wth!
Pros: All good.
Cons: All good.
Pros: The flight was smooth and on time. The crew was competent.
Cons: For the second time my luggage was missing on arrival at Baltimore too. Didn't receive it until seven days after arrival.
Pros: I liked the upgraded seat on the first half of the journey but not the fact that I didn’t get the same seat on the second half without any apologies or attempts to make up for their faults.
Cons: They could have properly trained customer service against instead of maladjusted robots who show zero sympathy for their passengers concerns. I will never fly this airline again.
Cons: I did not like that I was unaware they changed my flight number from 404 to 406 but because of storm warning it made sense. I did not like how they board you on the plane in Iceland. They make you take a bus and then climb up stairs into plane out of ticket order. Standing on those stairs in rain and wind is not fun. also the food selection for morning is awful.
Pros: It was a budget flight not much to expect, service was nice.
Cons: Not enough leg room, I didn't expect to be in first class but even sitting upright I could barely sit in my seat.
Pros: non event --missed connection flight due to bad flight crew. my name is liam from new jersey
Pros: The price for the flight was very nice and the staff was on top of things especially for how long the flight was.
Cons: The food and drinks were very overpriced and taxed as well.
Cons: Disorganized and horribly untransparent. The flight left the airport more than an hour after we were supposed to, but we were given no updates. Instead, we stood in a hot tunnel for an hour, then in a hot shuttle, and then sat on the plane.
Cons: Would not let.me board the flight as my name was booked as Chris and not Christopher. When calling support they refused to change my name as it was 4 hours before the flight....horrible, they cost me a lot of.money!!!
Pros: There was a major problem with my booking and I went through almost 2 hours or stress thinking I would not be let on the flight. This has never happened with Kayak. But it was really bad. TAP insisted they could not book me on as Azores Airlines from Pinta Delgado to Toronto was not booked for me. I had to call bothe airlines. With no help from the desk. I finally got both to confirm and at the last minute was allowed on the flight. I chose this route to have a nice couple of days in Portugal and I will have. But the flight start was really upsetting.
Cons: I like Kayak. But am very concerned about booking through in the future with this treatment.
Cons: Long wait on crowded hot bus to the plane.
Pros: The crew was friendly and helpful.
Cons: I was in seat 35G. The space under the seat in front of me was very small, and it was nearly impossible to get to my bag when the person in front of me reclined. Also, the young boy sitting behind me was kicking the seat throughout most of the flight. Not your fault, but it was pretty crappy.
Cons: We called the day before to ask about baggage and was told was included in price of ticket. Only to get to airport and be told was not included and cost 95 euro per bag. absolutely unacceptable and will warn all future associates that travel to Portugal
Cons: There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late.
Pros: Delay was minimized. Wow left enough leeway to naked up some time after a big snow storm.
Pros: Price was very inexpensive, crew was polite and efficient and our flights were on time. The food was fine, but a little overpriced.
Cons: No entertainment, but that’s how they keep costs low. Seating was not incredibly clean.
Pros: The price
Cons: Boarding procedures are terrible. No perks. You pay the difference in price in your baggage and other fees.
Pros: (3/4) My friend finally came up from baggage claim and had told me that no bags came, and the staff member we were speaking to downstairs told us that our luggage was probably already on its way to Chicago. Note that he never asked for our names or our baggage claim ticket. We bought a plane ticket on Icelandair for the next afternoon, found an ACE Guesthouse to stay at, paid for another cab, and left with our carry-ons with nothing useful for overnight because of the first encounter at the check-in counter where we weren't able to properly remove our chosen belongings from our suitcases. The next morning after I woke up and as soon as I knew our original flight had landed, I tried to call O'Hare to confirm that our bags had indeed made it to Chicago. I was not able to get ahold of anyone that could help. When we got to the airport, 4.5 hours early, we checked in and went straight to baggage claim to double check where our bags were. We were not leaving Iceland until we were 100% sure of where our belongings were. Lo and behold, it's the same employee that was working in the baggage claim area the day before. He remembered us, and told us that he had good news and bad news. The good news was that they found our bags, the bad news was that was our bags were on their way to Boston. Boston? BOSTON?! He said they went to Boston because if there were bags left here, it was mandatory that they get sent as fast as they could to the country they are scheduled to arrive at, no matter what airport. That location happened to be Boston. We have NO idea why this was the case, when they knew that we had missed our flight and were still in Iceland. Isn't it mandatory that luggage stay with the owner? We wanted to call Boston to make sure that our bags were there, and to have them sent to Chicago so that they were in Chicago when we arrived later that day. He told us that there was nothing that we could do, that we would have to wait until we get to Chicago, file a claim, and then they would have our bags sent to us a day or so later. Note again, that he never asked for our names or our bag claim number. Begrudgingly, we left him, even more furious, and waited for our next flight. Meanwhile, I tried to get ahold of anyone from O'Hare – no luck. I tried to get ahold of anyone from Boston – no luck. Finally, I decided to call WOW Customer Service. I explained the situation to her, and told her that it was absolutely necessary to know where my bags were, and to know that they would be waiting for me in Chicago when I arrived, also questioning WHY protocol called for our bags being sent to Boston. She asked for the claim number, and told me the last time the bags were scanned was in Iceland. They were at the airport. I told her this was impossible, because I spoke to the same person the day before and today, and he said our bags were not at this airport. She insisted that they were.
Cons: (4/4) At this point, a few hours had gone by, and we were running short on time. With AN HOUR left until our DEPARTURE TIME, we went back to baggage claim and told the same employee that WOW had told us our bags were scanned in here. He seemed confused, and said he was not sure how this could be possible. My friend spotted her bag behind him, and pointed it out. He seemed shocked. I didn't see my bag anywhere, and asked him where it was, and he said that maybe it got swapped out with someone else's, because he didn't see it. My friend asked him to please check the back for my suitcase. Sure enough, it was there. CLEARLY, this employee had no idea what he was doing. He gave us misinformation numerous times. If we had not been so persistent, we never would have known that our bags were still at KEF in Iceland. HOW WOULD WE HAVE GOTTEN OUR BAGS TO CHICAGO??????????? If I had listened to the guy and trusted him, we would have landed in Chicago, filed a claim, and seen that there were NO bags in Chicago, and NO bags in Boston. Our belongings would have been stuck in Iceland. We then had hardly any time to go back to the check-in counter and check our bags. We waited in another line, checked our bags, and ran to our gate. Every other KEF staff member that we tried to speak to was very short and rude, unhelpful, and in a hurry to get us out of the way. Even when we tried to find someone at a kiosk, there was no one there working the kiosk. Nearly every employee at KEF had lied to my face, and did not care that I needed help. If I had not been lied to about information regarding notifications, flights, baggage, etc. on numerous accounts, I know for a FACT that I would have made sure I made my flight. This experience is absolutely unacceptable. The incapable, rude, and dishonest airport staff and unaccommodating airlines costed us an extra $1,000 each. It also cost us the couple hundred dollars we would have made at work the next day. I will never fly WOW again. I will never fly to or through Keflavik International Airport again. I will never recommend WOW. I will never recommend KEF. This left such a bad taste in my mouth that I don't really ever want to go to Iceland again. And I know my friend feels the same way.
