Do the Paris airports have enough customs/passport control to handle screening all Schengen flights the same as non-Schengen flights?
Extra staff will certainly be mobilised, probably not enough for normal throughput so delays will occur.

They can't close their borders, all they can do is close airports. Anything else has been cut down so stupidly and so severely that an effective supervision let alone lockdown of the border is impossible now.
Of course it's possible to put mobile control posts at entry points with the help of all diverse forces (police, gendarmerie, army, etc).
And remember that a border has two sides, so help can be provided from forces on the other side if both countries agree. Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain are "friend" countries who could be facing the same threats. I doubt they will not cooperate.
