Q&A Regarding Deutsche Bahn

  • Q Is it possible to travel on an earlier/later train than the reserved train as shown on the ticket?

    A

    You may take any train as long as the connecting train to/from JL408/JL407 is within 24 hours of departure/arrival. Please check the train type and the departure time and allow extra time.

    • *When departing from Frankfurt by JL408, please arrive at the airport at least 90 mins before the flight departure.
  • Q Can I board Deutsche Bahn without pick up my checked baggage after JL407 arrival?

    A

    Your baggage will not be checked through to Deutsche Bahn.
    Pick up your baggage upon arrival at Frankfurt Airport and board the train.

  • Q Can I reserve a seat?

    A

    The ticket is issued not as a reserved-seat ticket but a railway ticket. Please take an available seat after boarding. If you prefer a reserved seat, purchase a reserved-seat ticket at the Deutsche Bahn counter.
    Also, please note that if characters are displayed on the electric board located on the overhead of seat, the seat is already reserved.

  • Q Can I use the Deutsche Bahn at the same time with JAL AIRPORT EXPRESS Bus Service?
