we arrived CDG for an 9.15 am flight around 7. 1k/J check in was full but through in 10 minutes. With access 1 code on your BP, immigration and security are not too bad. We were check in to gate in about 45 min or less...

Since I know for many people "free" is all important 8), let's pretend the AC lounge were closed and it's early morning. Where would you go? Is there any comfortable space you can pay for, at another restaurant or lounge? Or is there just nothing?

This was my experience on three trips (dont ask) through immigration and security at the end of July: at times, security backed up to the point where they stopped processing the immigration lines for 10 minutes or so. Nonetheless, I was through the whole pre-gate process in under 45 minutes each time with Accs No. 1.
