From London to Paris to US

Jump to last reply

Hi, so I'm travelling alone internationally for the first time. The first leg of the trip is a nonstop flight from the US (Philadelphia International Airport) to Heathrow. I'm not too worried about this because I've had so many people explain the process to me.

However, on the way home I leave from Heathrow and have a short stop in Paris at CDG before returning to Philly. It's from a British Airway flight to an American Airlines flight (not sure if that part matters). I'm just very nervous about the layover because there is less than two hours between the flights and I don't know if it will require me to recheck my bags, go through customs/security and how long that will take and if I'm going to be cutting it too close if I'm in a huge airport alone with no idea what to do.

Any help would be appreciated! Will I need to get my bag then re-check it? What about customs?

My plane is suppose to arrive at CDG at 11:15 AM and my flight is set to leave from CDG to Philly at 1:10 PM. Is that enough time?

I'm just very nervous about messing up and being stuck in a Paris!
