Yet another transfer review. CDG is quick and efficient in processing my entry to the EU. And my luggage kept on going to WAW without incident. Can't ask for much more.
Might help being there 6am-ish. Not much in the way of lines. Also might help that I'm not trying to check in. Although after WAW and JFK I'm not sure any airport's check-in can frighten me.
The terminal I know, 2F, is comfy and full of little storefronts that almost tempt you. I broke down and tried the Ladurée "mini-macarons." Don't. Whoever fills them missed the "mini" part. It's just a sugar bomb, not a macaron. The other, related chain Paul is fine for pan y cafe, or whatever the French call it. It's a kinda-mega-chain, but this still is an airport so there's not much choice.
If you're tight with usage, the 15 minutes of free wireless can stretch a while.
And I am amused that one related (unofficial) website insists that I "upgrade to Netscape" to use it. The European computer industry is so funny.
