Minimum connection time at CDG

Does anyone know please where I can find details of the official minimum connection time EY-BA (both Terminal 2A/C) please? AA is telling me that it is 180 minutes, which seems extraordinary.

Utter non-sense of course, providing you travel on one ticket as this is non-Schengen to non-Schengen in the same terminal, so you will have only to go through security. If you travel on separate ticket, the MCT concept is not applicable and, in that case, 3 to 4 hrs is highly recommended.

Thanks. Agreed, but the difficulty is that AA will not ticket a connection shorter than 180 minutes.

But as this is BA+EY, why do you want to deal with AA ? Can you work on this with BA or EY, or with an OTA or TA ?

It's an AA reward ticket. 180 mins has been confirmed on the BA forum:

Thanks for all the information. This is really ridiculous and do you know what is the MCT for BA to AA (or reverse) in CDG ? Because that is the exact same situation as yours (non-Sch to non-Sch, same terminal). And I am guessing it will be much shorter.
