1 Hr 55 mins enough time for CDG connection

Greetings, I know this topic comes up periodically, but hoping to get the most recent insights on this...we are flying US to Athens, connecting through CDG, transfering from 2E (don't know what hall) to 2F, with a 1 Hr 55 mins connection. NOT Sky Priority. On one AF ticket and bags checked through to Athens. Arriving in the morning (7:35). Do I need to worry about making our connecting flight or should this time be sufficient? EASYCDG suggests 90 mins is enough but have heard bad things.......thanks very much.

1;55 connection at CDG is usually fine and since you are on one ticket, AF should solve problems if your flight to CDG is late.

There are hundreds of threads here asking for the same question. Yes, it is completely fine if you are in the same ticket all the way through.

Well nothing in life is guaranteed. If the flight to CDG is on-time, then the odds of making the connection are probably 98%.
If the flight to CDG is an hour late, then the odds of making the connection fall to probably 40%.
So what really matters is the on-time arrival history of the US-CDG flight, which you can look up to at least get an idea of the statistics.
