Meeting at CDG

Jump to last reply

My mom (75) and I are going to Burgundy for a month in the fall. On past trips we have travelled together on the same flight from Boston. I now live on the west coast and so I will be leaving from San Francisco (on United) and she from Boston (on Delta/AF) arriving within a couple hours of each other the next morning at CDG.
I have flown to Paris on both airlines and they arrive in different terninals.

I am tying to determine the best way to meet up. Mom arrives a couple of hours before me, likely in terminal 2e. I will likely arrive in terminal 1. I have never had to meet someone else in another terminal so I am not sure if I can get there once I have collected my luggage.

To make things more complicated, my mom has low vision and so she has trouble recognizing unfamiliar sighns and landmarks. She is not timid and can speak a few basic words of French. If I can determine an easily recognizeable spot, she will just wait for me.

I was hoping there would be some very obvious landmark that I could direct her to without confusion. She will not have a cell phone - her large format model doesn't operate in Europe.

TIA
