The concrete donut that is CDG 1 has been in renovation for a long time so it is nice to be able to report that some new check in facilities are now in use there.

Described as "Check in Hall 5" , it will not astound any of our regular users of CDG, that it is not between "Halls 4 & 6" (actually aisles, not halls), as most might reasonably imagine it to be found, or infer from the counting skills they learn in preschool, or expect from concerns about moving passengers to the right place that other airports adopt.

Being CDG, 5 is on an entirely differing and lower floor than halls 4 & 6 are and the easiest way to find it is to seek out the Mc Donalds, as it is close by.

Perhaps "Check in Hall X" rather than Hall 5 might have helped make the point about this being in a different place, on a different floor.
Of course, being CDG it is not marked as Hall 5 even when you get there either and the most recent issue of the ADP magazine, on free offer at CDG, does not show it at all in their new map.

To accomodate this space, the "Boutiques" that once were on this level have largely vanished now, leaving a small News and Magazine Shop, a Pharmacy and a Post Office. A further shop is to open there run by Casino "shortly".

LOL, that's typical of the halfwitted bureaucrates at ADP (Aéroports de Paris), you gotta love them for their systematic sabotage of their airports. Big grin

Indeed you do have to admire their capacity for self harm.

Sadly, the French, who can agitate about many things, seem to accept ADP.
