CDG - DUB - ORD Connection with a baby

Hello Everyone - My wife and I are taking a trip later this year with our to be just over 1 year old son. For our flight home from Paris, there are two options for the layover in Dublin, 1 hr and 15 mins or 4 hr and 15 mins. It's all on Aer Lingus and we all have US Global Entry. Is 1 hr 15 mins too tight? I'm not thrilled with the idea of waiting 4 hours, but also don't want to miss our connection.

Appreciate the advice!

If you book the 1hr and 15 minute connection and don’t make it because of the late arrival of the plane from CDG then they’ll put you on the next plane. So from that point of view there’s nothing to worry about. They’ll get you through USCBP quickly too if you’re running late.

Hi -- similar question. We are flying CDG-DUB-SFO. We are scheduled to arrive DUB at 11:05 and depart at 12:50. We both have Global Entry but it seems kind of tight -- I've never been through that airport before. I'm thinking we should pay extra to sit closer to the front on the CDG-DUB leg?

I've done similar in the past with slightly less time scheduled in DUB and despite some delay with the gate still made it with time for a quick stop at 51st&green.

There were quite a few alternative ways to get to SFO later with a connection somewhere else in the US if it came down to it, but that wasn't needed.

With Global Entry you should be fine. If there’s a delay make it known to cabin crew you’re transferring. There’s a transfer lane in the terminal that will get you to pre clearance in minutes. And they’ll call for you to skip the queue if your departure time is approaching
