CDG yesterday, Wednesday

Just so those wanting to know approximate transfer times. We arrived at 8:05 and taxied until 8:25 or so to a tarmac spot to park. We then boarded buses and took the well known "grand tour" of the airport and were finally taken to 2E, I believe. It was now close to 8:45 when we approached immigration. That took only another 10 minutes or so. Then we had to exit the baggage area and go towards 2F. The security there was not too horribly crowded but it took another 10 minutes or so. We finally arrived inside the gate area of 2F, walking fairly briskly, around 9:05 a.m.

Also, we were forced to go out into the public non -secure area to catch our connecting flight, perhaps because we did not unload at a jetway, but rather on the tarmac and by bus.

So you can see that all even going well, it is a long procedure at CDG. Those waiting for bags were told before we disembarked that it would be a 42- minute- wait for their bags at arrival.
