    Any dates set yet when the A concourse extension will open? I have "somewhen in 2012" in mind, not sure about that. Also, what Lounges in the then extended A concourse? The A26 lounges will probably stay there, where are new lounges planned?

    There are planned HON / SEN / FTL Lounges in the middle of the concourse. A26 lounges will stay. 2012 was communicated.

    I have a long layover in FRA in April, connecting LHR to ICN. Advice - ? Best F lounge is to go to the Terminal I assume?

    It will move. It is not on the Map. But it is still a rumour.

    LHR flights often arrive at the B gates, therefore I'd recommend FCL B.
    If you arrive at an apron position, I'd walk over to the FCT.

    Just away. There will be a kind of bridge with curbside check-in.

    I think it was a space problem.

    LH have announced once again that LHR flights will in future park at a gate in FRA. Departures to LHR will also be from a gate (B24 or B27).

    They made a similar announcement about a year ago and did not honour the promise, so whether it will happen this time is anyone's guess.

    As they even park longhaul 747s on the apron, I'd assume their announcement is not worth very much.

    It's kinda sad that they have to announce such "unimportant" things...

    Unimportant? I think it's very important. [​IMG]
    But I agree that it's unfortunate they have to make an identical announcement 9 months later.

    Does LH / FRA offer assistance to elderly travelers? My parents will be transiting for the first time soon and do not have any experience flying internationally. I tried to avoid FRA, but it ended up being the best option. I'm considering getting a ticket BUD-FRA-BUD just to help them transit FRA to their next flight.

    Check these Tips for elderfy passengers on lufthansa.com. They offer assistance for those with limited mobility without charge. Alternatively you can pay for a Guide service.

    Thanks NewbieRunner -- I should have been more specific (and possibly posted in a different forum), but they will not be flying LH. They might be on LH from BUD (can't recall for sure), but then connect to AA.
