"insufficient and confusing signs"

(Germany)

Trip Verified | Very large airport with confusing layout, extremely long walkways, insufficient and confusing signs, very ugly buildings. Transfer to city with RER is comfortable, but quite pricey.

"the worst airport I've ever seen"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Unbelievably low quality, close to zero respect for customers, poorly organized, and dirty airport for the "city of light"! Few seating areas, crowded, uncomfortable seats, few cafes with long lines for relatively few, not appetizing choices. I'm dreading the long layover here (4-5 hrs). No doubt, the worst airport I've ever seen.

"not disability friendly at all"

(New Zealand)

Not Verified | Horrible airport. Couldn’t find any information centre or person willing to help as my mother was on crutches. Also not disability friendly at all with the only options being stairs or a steep travelator. Went through security and waited to get food as most normal main airports have a selection of options once through security. There was one Brioche Doree, how ridiculous. There are several hundred people sitting at our gate queuing for one cafe.

"Terrible customer service"

(Ireland)

Not Verified | Terrible customer service, starting from painfully slow busses that operate between terminals (good luck catching your transfer flight) and rude, non-English speaking security/customer service staff that shout at the people in an aggressive manner when asked for assistance or directions. I missed my flight and was sent to the customer service desk to replace my ticket only to stand in the row for more than 4 hours with only 10-12 people before me and missed another flight. Finally, I got my ticket for 6 hours later that evening and was told that they can't offer any food or drink voucher since I arrived with another, non-Air-France company. I never wrote a negative review in my life but this whole experience was absolutely disgraceful.

"the worst airport in Europe"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | This is hands down the worst airport in Europe. The lounges refuse access without explanation, despite them not being full. There are small sparrows living in the terminals, which run around like rats. The staff working here are miserable. Delays are more than frequent. Air France regularly strike and the whole place comes to a standstill, the sooner Air France call it a day, the better. Despite cancelled flights and promises of compensation, their customer service systems are non responsive, until they are backed into a corner. CDG is terrible.

"Experience pure confusion"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Looking for a unique form of exercise? Want to meet new people? Have fun experiences with paid liars? Then take a walk on the wild side. Experience pure confusion, up close and personal, security searches more than once, long lonely walks, bus rides to parts of the airport that no one knew exists only to line up again and go through yet another security line. You will meet cute little French gals in adorable outfits who are paid to lie (only a 2 minute walk). Then after walking around the airport in circles with no signs, you might have to take a leak (only if you were able to find some water for sale) and this task of finding a bathroom becomes one of the most annoying parts of your journey! I highly recommend buying some adult diapers! Once through security and customs, you will head “just a few steps” to the twilight zone, no signs, to yet another line waiting to get on yet another bus! Yay! After waiting for 2 buses you are dropped on the tarmac land and have climb the steep set of metal stairs in the rain. Stairs are slick but the airport knows you won’t care because you are departing from a nightmare! Never ever going here again! Wishing you the best of luck going through a living nightmare at Charles De Gaulle airport! This review box asked if I would like to submit any photos, there is no time to take any photos of anything! Oh, I might add that our bags never made it to our destination for 30 hours!

"no place for passengers to relax properly or to rest"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | There is no place for passengers with a long wait between flights to relax properly or to rest. I have four hours to wait for my next flight. There are only standard waiting room rows of seats, or a few scooped seats bolted to the floor. It would be nice to have places for passengers to lie out. Should I just throw myself on the floor? It does have some carpet. I can see several other passengers also being very uncomfortable here.

"one of the worst airports in the world"

(United States)

Not Verified | This is one of the worst airports in the world for flying internationally, and I would rate it a 0 on 10 if possible. The security check points are hopeless, they make you scan your boarding passes at least 4 times for no particular reason, and the security check points are extremely inefficient. The water kiosks are ancient, it's like they were taken out of the historical sites in the city of Paris and transferred to the airport - there is no automatic water filling station, and if you have a big water bottle, good luck filling it. Only one brioche doree is serving hot food near my gate, and the service is slow and appalling. Very limited seating, and I feel this airport should be turned into a tourist spot for being the most ancient airport in terms of technology. I feel sorry to say this, but this airport is a stark contrast to the wonderful time I had in Paris. The airport is an insult to the WW2 hero that it is named after.
