TGV Basel to Paris questions

We will be arriving in Basel from Lucerne with only 9 minutes to change to the TGV to Paris. I know that the Swiss have an amazing reputation for being on time (love it!), but is 9 minutes really enough time? Also, does the TGV arrive at the CDG airport Paris station?

The TGV from Basel to Paris arrives at Paris Est. Another train is required to get to the airport.

If you use the www.fahrplan.sbb.ch rail planner it goes from Luzern to Strasbourg and then onto another TGV direct to the airport. They give the train you are suggesting as a direct connection. However when I am going to Basel fro the TGV I leave Luzern on the train that leaves at 30 minutes past the hour and arrives in Basel with 18 minutes transfer time.

too risky, give yourself some more time. especially since you will have reservations on teh TGV and you do not want to miss them. plus you will have to get new ones and that is not as easy (or cheap).

laos make sure from where you will take teh tgv, Basel SBB or Basel SBB Gl. 30-35 ?

if it is the second, youz must calculate about 15 minutes. it is in teh same building and not very far away, but till you find it, negotiate the unyielding crowds etc... it takes time
