Another Fly vs Train Question - Paris to Barcelona

Jump to last reply

So I have read many posts...

I am flying Atlanta to CDG on June 8th arriving June 9th at 6:10am

We need to get to Barcelona to start our trip...

At first I thought we'd fly - we are at the airport right...


Most Likely 10am Flights would be fine - but a little nerve wracking.... if delays
There is a 10am fights - Veuling/Easy Jet (can't remember) for 72
And a 10am on Air France $122 (we are flying in on Delta/Air France)

To avoid the stress I thought id do the later flights ....
There are later flights 2:34-/3:45 that are $50 +/-

We will have small rolling suitcases but worried about the strictness....

That makes a 10am train intriguing - but also TIGHT on timing. That train is neutral on price
The later Train - Would be more expensive and be getting into BCN late.

Thoughts???
Kids want to take a train, and we wouldn't have to worry about luggage, but that timing is too tight right????
I'm trying to read the luggage rules... and should do more of that to know if we'd come out close to Neutral on Air France
We are Gold Medallion on Delta

Money matters, but more is having a smooth transition.....
