Hi
I just booked a trip to New York , from Dublin via CDG on AF. The dates are march 16th and returning march 19th. Its just my father and myself travelling together. The outbound leg is to EWR on an A340 and returning from JFK on the B777. Big grin
Is there anyway we can reserve our seats online cause i was kinda hoping for two seats to ourselves . I cant see any link on the Air France site where we can pick our seats. Its possible on BA so why not AF?
Thanks

It is possible by calling their regular reservations number. Online seat assignments is also an option by loging in. Hope that helps!

Also I don't know how much time you have to transfer but CDG is getting some very bad reviews on that front. Just to give you an idea I had almost 1 hour to transfer within the same terminal, just 8 gates apart, missed my connection due to some crazy lets get another security check line ordeal.

S**t ! I have 45minutes to transfer from 2F to 2C. TK787 , i am worried after your comments . Do you have any idea of the time it takes to transfer from 2f-2c? Do you think i'll make my connection or would it be wise to change my flights?

Hey good luck,
my brother is going to do the exact 2C-2F next Tuesday, and he is worried. AF thinks 45min. is enough to do a international transfer, I say not in "CDG".
I would definitely book another flight and allow yourself some more time

Interesting.....over the summer, I flew LHR-CDG-DXB-CDG-LHR on AF.......and yes..sometimes it can get bad, not because the terminals are bad, but if the plane winds up parking at a remote stop....then you are transferred via bus, and while you are getting off the bus, you have to show your ticket and passport to security/police.....in fact, the police made me delete some photos (guess it was a "no no" to take photos of them while they were peforming their duites)...not to mention, he didnt' speak to me in English (even though I had a United States passport), fortunately for me, I understand French.. biggrin 

anway, after that, you sometimes have to go through the security screening..that's where all the time adds up

walking from 2F-2C shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes actually..and if you get off at the gate itself, then you should be ok..

Ireland is not s Schengen country is it? If not you never actually have to clear immigration and re-clear security in Paris, just take the airside bus. Anyhow I did a 2E (before the collapse) to 2D international to Schengen connection in 20 min. 45 min is a little tight but that is what AF says is legal. Obviously if your flight is on-time you should be OK, but there isn't a huge amount of room for error.
