Urgent: Get boarding pass at CDG for 6/15/22 am flight

I am checked in for my flight tomorrow but cannot get a boarding pass due to UA system error re tsa/global entry errors.
Very early flight, concerned that counter wont be open to get boarding pass.
Are there boarding pass machines at CDG in T2A where I can get a printed boarding pass? If so what do I need to present?
2 hours on Premiere line with zero help.

Counter will be open - usually boarding passes cannot be issued out of the country without a check of documents.

Sort it out at the airport.

There will be airport personnel to help, however early or late the flight would be.

If there is a flight departing then rest assured counters will be open There are many reasons why a BP will not issue; usually a quick fix at a check-in counter. How do you know it is a GE/TSA error? Just curious.

Right - there's always a counter open for early flights - people need to check bags!

It seems you had asked the same question in the past.

Consolidated CDG connection time/logistics/lounge

In general, UA counter will open 3 hours prior to flight time. Just check-in as usual with an agent.

On the handful of times I was not issued a digital boarding pass on an international flight, it is because I've been designated SSSS.

Hopefully not the case for you- but an FYI.

Agree, most likely a SSSS situation.

I've been unable to do online check-in a number of times and it's almost always due to travel documents - the system didn't like what I provided for some reason and wouldn't let me check in until a human at the check-in counter confirmed I did in fact have the appropriate visa, etc. Never got an SSSS in those situations but it did sometimes take a tad longer to check in. Not a big deal, but either way I'd just get there a bit early if you're concerned.

This could very well be the root cause as well. When I was leaving CUN last month, it kept kicking back my COVID test. However, the app wouldn't move past the check in phase.

It's been a common occurrence in Delta-world that I can't get a BP issued for an INTL flight because of some issue with COVID-related forms. Annoying, but it's not the end of the world - plenty of people don't OLCI at all and show up at the airport to get their boarding passes, no matter what time the flight is at.

There will be someone 2-3 hours before departure ready to deal with any problem you might have, and to check your bags. Some people have visas and things which require them to do this every time!

Give yourself a bit more time than usual, and be prepared to stand in line, but you'll be able to get a BP with enough time to go through security and make it to your flight.

I had that happen at EDI last week with UA. Got the boarding pass at airport, but it had the dreaded SSSS, so I got an extra security check at the gate. I do have precheck. My wife could get her boarding pass no problem.

Are you sure you're on a very early UA flight, not a partner-operated codeshare? UA doesn't have anything out of CDG before 9am.

Don't worry. Check-in counters will be open. Just go there in the morning.
