Charles De Gaulle Airport Informative - Air travel in France
FRANCE -- SHAMEFUL TREATMENT
of the type Banana Republic
On July 22, 2007, my wife transited at France Charles De Gaulle Airport, while traveling from Dubai to Toronto.
2 hours standing
Arriving on flight AF 525 around 06:00 hours in CDG (France), the passengers were lined up before the first gate and left standing there, without further care, for two hours, while other plane passengers were processed.
Reason given: other planes were late and needed to connect with other flights.
Waiting in line were: elderly, parents with young children, persons with health concerns such as back and knee problems, etc. Requests to supply chairs to elderly and mothers with babies were totally ignored. They had no more care than cattle in an auction pen.
When passengers asked to talk to Manager/Supervisor, they were threaten to be arrested by the police for disturbance.
The treatment of these passengers is shameful and a total disgrace to the country of France, its carrier and its airport. In our experience, it put these in a worst category than Egypt Air.
Transiting in France was demeaning.
From a man disgusted by the treatment of his wife by the French.
