NOTE:   Be prepared to spend time in line at  Immigration /Customs processing - even though extra facilities are available, the few staffers there are in no rush to serve the passengers and service can be dismal.  Airport reviews have consistently complained about it & not much seems to have changed in recent years to address these grievances.  Hopefully, the summer season of 2016 has brought some positive changes. On the plus site CDG has an excellent Terminal map and its flight transfer site is commendable.
