Lufthansa First Layover Advice

    So I'm flying into Frankfurt at around 9pm, and my flight in Lufthansa First leaves around 10am the next day.

    Can I go into the first class terminal and occupy one of the nap rooms for the night? Would I even be able to check in the night before, as I'm coming in on BA?

    Any knowledge is great.

    So I'm flying in Frankfurt at 9pm on Wednesday on BA and my flight in Lufthansa First leaves the next morning at around 10.

    Can I check in to the terminal the night before and occupy a nap room for the night? Or can I only do this in the morning?

    Am I even able to drop my bags the day before?

    Any help/knowledge is appreciated.

    Welcome @Joe Barnes - are your inbound & outbound flights on the same PNR or are they two separate tickets? If it's all on one ticket your bags should be checked through to your final destination.

    Hopefully someone who's gotten to experience the FCT can answer the question about nap rooms.

    Hi @Joe Barnes, and welcome!

    I'm pretty sure that regardless of whether your flights are on the same or separate tickets, you only have access to the FCT on the same day as your LH Group First flight. The lounges also aren't open overnight, so you would only be able to stay until just before the last departure.

    I'd recommend getting a hotel at the airport -- there are several serviceable options within walking distance.

    Sounds like a fun trip!
