I have an unbelievably short amount of time to make my flight connection to Rome at Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airport in Paris. 45 minutes: The minimum allowed according to the CDG rules. Even in the best circumstances 45 minutes is barely enough time but add that the airport is in France, under construction, and I'll be suffering from sleep deprivation and it sounds like I have my work cut out for me. So in an effort to be fully aware of the situation I started checking reviews of Air France and CDG.
Main hub of Air France is Charles De Gaulle airport, the AIRPORT OF ALL THINGS UNHOLY!
Three passport checks, two security checks, two bus rides later, two hours of connection time disappears.
Don't check anything you really, really want to see again.
Avoid this airport if you are traveling anywhere else other than France and you need to get a connecting flight.
Food Quality- Satisfactory Customer Service- Very unhelpful Punctuality- Awful Space- Comfortable Value for Money- Poor
There are many, many horror stories out there about CDG. Lots of complaints about having to climb stairs, take buses between terminals, and leave the secure area and re-enter. I wasn't really expecting quite so many complaints about both Air France and CDG but now that I know, I'm kind of intrigued. Just how much will go wrong? Will I become outraged? Is it really that bad?
