Is CDG Open At 1am For Check-in For The 10:55am?

Fri Jan 30, 2009 3:23 pm

Me and a friend are checking in at Manchester on the Sunday at 3pm but transfering in paris for the 10:55am flight the next day...
Do you think they can check us in all the way through with the 10:55am flight included in the manchester departure?

Would we need to pick up suitcases in CDG if the connecting flight with the same airline is the day after?

We just wanted to tour the city and eiffel tower while we waited for the next days flight (without a hotel)
So we thought to stay in the airport from around 1am-10:55am
Let me know if this sounds like a good idea in paris? thanks  

P.S There will be a massive trip report coming your way...Think Long haul flight Big grin

In MAN, if you are flying the same airline all along your journey (AF), they can check you in all the way to your final destination.

Normally no.

Why returning to CDG at 1.00 AM if your flight is only at 10:55 AM ? Spend your night in Paris ! go out, have fun and return to CDG early in the morning ....

While I have never been through Paris, based on the reviews of the airport at http://www.sleepinginairports.net/europe/paris.htm I would have to agree with FlySSC: find a hotel!

Back on topic, yep, as long as both flights are on the same ticket there should be no problem checking them all the way.

Have fun in CDG, should be an interesting TR.
Radial engines don't leak oil, they are just marking their territory!

Yeah I remember Paris...just some bright yellow and red chairs like you find in a diner Big grin
I guess I could find a hotel quite cheap  Smile

P.S Yes I will make a good report including the city trip and also the long haul trip  Smile

There is a cluster of reasonably priced Formule 1/Etap/Ibis hotels just a few minutes ride outside of CDG (with a free shuttle bus from/to CDG).

Thanks for that  Smile
I have put some words together for my end of flight  Smile

qui a été un bon/mal atterrissage. Puis-je jeter un oeil dans le cockpit  Smile


that was a good/bad landing. Can I take a look in the cockpit  Smile

hehe maybe I wouldnt say bad but I can't lie if the latter happens Big grin
Infact, I was on a Oz flight and he slammed it down, the captain said "He did it" Pointing to the 1st officer  Smile
