Well - can only comment on Beauvais. It's a small airport, and a plus is you can be out of there in 20 minutes, including baggage retrieval. Bus to Porte Maillot costs 13 euro each way.

Yeah but Beauvais is about 1 hour away from Paris. My votes would be in this order:

Orly
CDG
Beauvais

Orly is close and smallish so the best choice by far. CDG is at least not so far away. Beauvais is just to far.

Ditto Morgan, except that Beauvais is TOO far.

Ditto Morgan & Ira -- and if you should have to try getting a re-route on another carrier out of Beauvais because you happen to have an issue...?

Another vote for Orly. Beauvais only if you're interested in seeing the town's cathedral.
