I am trying to decide between two flights returning to the U.S. from Paris. There is a flight that departs CDG at 1:30PM and another at 4:40PM and I was wondering which one you guys would recommend -- I will be staying in Montpellier so I will have to take an approx 4 hr TGV ride and there are two - one that arrives in CDG at 10:57AM and another that arrives at 12:29 PM.
1) Is arriving at 10:57am ample time for the 1:30PM flight? Does TGV ever get delayed? and if for some reason I miss the TGV that arrives at 10:57am, will it be too late to arrive for the 1:30PM flight taking the later train that arrives at CDG at 12:29PM?
2) Should I just give myself ample time and go for the 4:40PM flight? If I do that, I will likely take the TGV that arrives at CDG at 12:29PM, which means I will have to sit at the airport for 4 hrs! Not sure I want to do that..
In general, how early does one usually need to arrive at CDG prior to an international flight? Not sure how CDG generally performs with keeping their flights on-time...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! thanks
