transit time- arrival Paris CDG/T2 & have only 3hrs before flight out of T1

Jump to last reply

Hi guys, I want to thank you in advance for your help. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I'm not an active member, but I find that whenever I need travel advice, Fodors members are the most helpful.

My flight from JFK is scheduled to arrive at Paris/CDG Terminal 2 at 5:45am on a Friday. Do you think I'll have time to take a flight to Rome/FCO from Kuwait Airways that departs from Terminal 1 at 9am?

Kuwait Airways states from their website that from CDG, I should check in 2 hours and 30 minutes before actual time of departure. Now I'm not sure if this is just the time the check in counters will open, or it is actually the cut off time. They say that from New York/JFK is 4 hours! I've flown many international flights out of JFK and never have I encounter a cut off time four hours prior to departure.

Alitalia says 40 minutes for medium haul international flights and Air France also seems to be the same at 40 minutes.

Unfortunately, I'll be traveling with check-in luggage. Would the airline have a right to refuse my check in luggage and refuse to let me on if I really don't get there by 6:30am??

Many thanks in advance!!
