This one's been bugging me for a while. Seems that every time I fly through CDG (about once every 12-18 months), my flight is swapped to some new terminal.
I recall back before the days of 2E, most of the flights from the US landed and departed from 2C. My last flights in and out of CDG on AF (CDG-IAH and back) left from 2E (and by 2E, I mean I took a bus from 2E out to the parking lot of AF jets), and arrived in 2F.
I thought that 2E was supposed to be AF's new terminal for long hauls, with 2F being more specifically for EU destinations. I understand that 2E is still under re-construction and thus is not operating anywhere near full capacity. Also, a domestic flight I took (LYS-CDG) was supposed to go to 2F, but wound up going to 2D, which I thought AF had left to other airlines.
Upon further research, it seems that AF still operates from about every sub-terminal in CDG2.
So, what my question boils down to is, what is the overall plan for allocating AF flights to CDG2 terminals? And second, why doesn't CO as a Skyteam partner fly into 2E or 2F like DL does, but instead is serving 2A with mainly non-skyteam airlines?
