CDG airport, 2 tickets

Jump to last reply

In my naive planning for my trip that leaves in 2 days, I bought a ticket on American Airlines leaving JFK with arrival CDG terminal 2A at 6:45 AM and then a SECOND ticket on Air France that departs CDG terminal 2F at 9:45 AM for Rome. I thought that since I am not checking a bag and would print my boarding pass prior that I would be able to "connect" with ease. I NOW know that I am doing NO such thing since I have a second ticket (and thus not a true connection, so I cannot follow the signs for connection/correspondance).

Is this the process? 1) Head to passport control/immigration as quickly as possibly in Terminal 2A which will dump me out into non-secure area. 2) Take N1 shuttle (or run) to 2F terminal heading straight to security since I have my boarding pass and do not need to drop a bag. I know that passport control can be long, and security can be long, and that my initial flight could run late. That said, if I know where I am going and COMMIT to the journey, is this doable?
