indeed. I had the very bad surprise recently arriving in LYS from AMS to have a passport control on arrival. One booth open only. It took me 30 min to go through and as several flights arrived after mine, the line behind me was getting totally out of control.
And I agree with you, it is all due to understaffing + in the case of CDG it seems that the network used by the police IT system & PARAFES is very slow (the response time of the system is very long, so if you loose 15 sec/pax, it counts at the end of the day)
