What will be the seating class for this trip ? Eco or Business ?
|Quoting mrskyguy (Thread starter):|
flying to Paris and taking the high-speed through the countryside to Bordeaux
Thru trains from Roissy (CDG
) to Bordeaux appear to be infrequent in the early afternoon.
You'd be advised to check if train times match favorably with air arrivals (the flight you are looking into).
If you use AF
065 arriving at 1125h, your option would be TGV 05218 departing CDG2/Roissy 1337h arriving Bordeaux St. Jean at 1800h sharp, making it a 4h23min ride.
2 hours of layover and a 4.5-hour train ride after a redeye flight across the pond ? Hardly something I would fancy ...
Will you have plenty of luggage/baggage to drag along ?
How much more expensive would it be to fly AF
all the way to BOD
? If you choose AF
065 and then AF
7624 you'll ariive at BOD
Taking a train from "downtown" Paris will mean even more hassle, as you first will have to take the RER to Paris Montparnasse.
I think I would prefer flying to BOD
