Transit Time

Transit Time

  1. Woodrow

    My return flight from FLR to SFO is on Air France and has only an 1:05 layover at CDG. This does not seem like much time to disembark a commuter plane and board an A380. Will I have to deal with any type of customs? This is J class, so I would presume I’d have some expecting privileges? Is this realistic?

    I assume the flights are both on the same ticket? If so it’s a legal connection. It should be just like making a connection on two flights within the US – no Customs to deal with or anything like that. However I’ve heard CDG is not a lot of fun to transit so hopefully someone who’s been there can chime in.

    Yes, 1 ticket, all Air France. Thanks!

    No customs of any kind since the connection in CDG is between Schengen countries. However, I’d watch closely for delays and what not and keep in mind some backup itineraries for rebooking should that problem arise. Also, assuming your flight is on time, let the cabin crew know you have a tight connection. The captain can sometimes let the airport know and may hold the connecting flight for you. The cabin crew may also arrange it so that you’re first off the plane.
