Passenger Terminal Layout at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Inter-Terminal Shuttes, and CDG Terminal details:

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.  On the plus site CDG has an excellent Terminal map and its flight transfer site is commendable.
