Locking a checked bag at CDG (Paris)

Jump to last reply

I am flying PHL to CDG and back. Outbound, TSA requires locks with a master key on checked bags so they can inspect them. Fine, I will do that.

But what is the security procedure for locking checked baggage returning from CDG (Paris) to the USA? I asked my airline and they said ask TSA; I asked TSA and they said there was no standard procedure from France to the USA, so they don't know

TSA doesn't know???

I searched the French government web sites for clues, I searched the web site of the agency that runs CDG but no help.

My travel agent told me to lock the bag outbound from the USA per TSA regulations, then unlock the bag completely on the return leg and pray your stuff is still there when you get home.

I want to lock my checked suitcase on the flight back to the USA but if I use the TSA approved lock, will the French security folks rip my bag open?

Have any of you checked a bag lately at CDG for the return flight to the USA? What has been your experience?
