When you arrive at Zürich airport, you can catch a train immediately to Luzern.
The timetable will help you understand the train ( and other public transport) schedules:
On any day, there are two trains per hour to consider for Luzern from Zürich airport, as well as longer routes with more connections.
At 1218 ( and other xx18 times) there is a train to Zürich Main statin. with a change to a train for Luzern. That particular train comes into Zürich at 1227, on track 32 in the lower levels. The train for Luzern leaves from the main rail platform area ( track9) at 1235. An 8 minute connection should be no trouble unless you have a lot of heavy luggage. If you have Swiss 2 frank coin in your pocket ( the deposit for a luggage cart available all throughout the station) you can even make that connection; the carts ride the escalators. Or. wait a half an hour and catch the next train to Luzern.
The direct train, which stops at Zürich main station but does not require a change of train, leaves the airport at every hour at xx47, such as 1147 or 1247, and arrives at Luzern 1 hour and 2 minutes later.
There is a food court on the top ( ground floor) of the train station at Zürich airport; trains are at lower levels. The train station is directly across the street from the arrival hal. God signage.
The time table can help you figure out possible excursions from Luzern.
