| I have flown through FRA a few times now, both for point-to-point flights and also connecting, so I feel I've developed enough of an experience to write an evidence-based review. And sadly, I have rarely enjoyed the experience. The airport is huge, as we all know, with massive numbers of passengers every single day, but despite this the airport seems to have failed to keep up with the demand when it comes to providing services. My entire experience of FRA seems to involve queueing for long periods of time as (far too few) staff slowly work through the crowds of people. On arriving at the airport regional train station, I headed for a shuttle to the other terminal to catch my flight. Clearly, not enough shuttles run. They are constantly overflowing with people, with no space to sit unless you're lucky. Check-in was also a very slow process, and of course security was too. I can't be the only one who likes to fully advance through the security screening before relaxing and seeking out a coffee etc? However, in FRA (at least in some cases), that is not a good idea. After advancing through all the various stages of screening, I arrived at the area of gates D1-D4. There is only a small shop to get some water/sweets/souvenirs. All the restaurants and cafes are before security, which I also find to be a poor airport design. I will say the airport is fairly clean and well-signposted, so you're unlikely to get lost. Just don't get there in a hurry to catch a flight!
