Munich to Frankfurt to Charlotte flight question

I am flying from Munich (Lufthansa ) changing to US Airways in Frankfurt with a direct flight to Charlotte. What do I do in Frankfurt concerning passport control, customs, security etc? Is 1 1/2 hours enough time to change planes etc.

No passport control or customs. there will be security -- and it will take time as flights to the US. have "special" security arrangements. 90 minutes will be enough time. I fthe hop from Munich is late, though, it could get interesting.

Munich-Frankfurt is a domestic flight, so you will have to pass immigration and security at Frankfurt.

Your luggage should be checked through from Munich to Charlotte.

1.5 hours is tight re the extra security for US flights, but if you are on one ticket is should be a valid connection.
