I was transferring on a ONT-SLC-CDG-MAN journey. On arrival we were parked at a remote stand and then bussed into the terminal following a 20-minute wait on the incoming plane. We also had to queue in the pouring rain to get on the bus. There then followed long queues to go through the x-ray caused by a combination of the fact that the security personnel spoke only French and the procedure being different from that at other hub airports. Specifically we were made to remove all electronic devices from our carry-ons and put them through in separate trays: not just laptops but cameras noise cancelling headphones shavers etc. etc. Most passengers did not understand the instructions in French hence the growing queue. Some of the PA announcements were made in French only including a paging call for someone with an English sounding name and a change of gate for a flight to Detroit. If CDG is going to take the money in airport fees from passengers in transit between English speaking countries this should not be happening. On the flight to Manchester I was denied boarding through the priority lane despite being a Flying Blue silver (and thus entitled to use it) and was made to join the back of the general queue. Another bus ride and wait in the rain then followed.
