CDG help needed

We have not flown Air Canada or easyJet, but it looks like we will. Here is my question:

The easyJet flight arrives at CDG from Nice at 7:50. Air Canada departs CDG at 11:30. I know that seems like a good amount of time, but oh my! CDG is such a hassle. Any feedback, thoughts, validations or help would be greatly appreciated. I'll ask an easyJet question in another thread.

You shouldn't have a problem. Since Nice-Paris is domestic/Schengen, you just walk off the plane at CDG3, wait for luggage and then take the shuttle bus to CDG 2A, where Air Canada departs. You should have 3 hours or close to it. Plenty of time unless your easyjet flight is significantly delayed.

Off-topic, but I wonder if CDG's official website will ever have any langauge other than French. They used to have English, but not anymore.

Easyjet uses Terminal 3 at CDG, which is slightly far from the other terminals. Air Canada leaves from Terminal 2A. You'll take a shuttle bus (navette). Looks like you have ample time for connection.

You should be just fine. We recently flew into CDG3 on a Schengen flight (meaning you don't have to go through customs and immigration) and it was quite smooth. You will need to hop on a shuttle ("navette") but it is no big deal.

I can't see any problem unless your flight is seriously delayed of course. I don't think CDG is such a terrible hassle compared to many large international airports, which are just as bad or worse. In fact, I find it easier than Heathrow, for example. There are also some large US airports I have found worse, like JFK, IAH and Chicago, although I'm sure others will disagree.
