Great to see a French aviation thread. I really enjoy the very successful Irish aviation threads, and as an Irish citizen living in France for the past 4 years now, I will be very interested in this thread. Good luck and long live the French Aviation Thread!

CDG is no more a mess for connection then LHR or FRA or some of the bigest US airports!!!
To be honest, give me CDG
any day! I don't honestly understand the problem so many people have with CDG
, I like it and find it very user friendly (yet I do admit CDG1 should just be rebuilt from zero). When living in Spain and before there were so many direction air connections between Spain and Ireland (and today there is an enormouse number of flights), I usually opeted to fly AF
and never had a problem. A year ago, as a loyal EI
customer and since they recently dropped TLS
for the winter, I booked AF TLS
and EI CDG
. Now EI
use CDG1. On my return flight I only had a 55 minute connection between the arrival of my EI
flight into CDG1 and my AF
departure from CDG2 for TLS
. Luckily EI
had booked my luggage straight through to TLS
(even though I was on separate tickets) -and the luggage arrived in TLS
on the intended flight, and the kind EI
woman at DUB
when she saw my tight connection and as she couldn't issue me with my AF
boarding pass, send me to AF
ticket sales at DUB
who issue dmy boarding pass. We arrived in CDG2 5 minutes ahead of schedule, and disembarked with only 45 minutes nevertheless until my departure for TLS
. I took the airside coach, and made it in time to even have a cup of coffee before my TLS
flight departed on time. So you see, with a bit of cop, it's easy to transfer at CDG

Also, the TGV website is light years ahead of any airline website I've ever seen.
Thanks for the link, I had never seen that one, always just used www.sncf.com.
When i have time later I'll post some more on my own issues with my local airport (TLS
) and also some comments on Bordeaux and Carcasonne, other provincial French airport I frequent.
A bientôt tout le monde!
