Hi, we are flying to CDG, but then immediately need to connect with another flight to Vienna. The flights are on 2 separate tickets, because the inbound to CDG flight is part of an award ticket. The award ticket part is set, and we will not change that. We plan to continue to Vienna, with Austrian Airlines. We will arrive with Air Canada. I read that Air Canada has interline agreement with Austrian, and we thought that we can check through our luggage to Vienna. Is that possible? I am trying to get confirmation from Air Canada. Can we also stay airside in CDG and take the airside shuttle bus vs having to pick up our luggage. We will just carry 1 checked luggage, but still going out, get the luggage, bring it back in the other terminal is something that we can do without, if we could. The AC flight will arrive in terminal 2A. The Austrian flight will leave out of terminal 2D. I read on CDG website that as long as we have a boarding pass for our next flight, we can take the airside bus. Any experts here care to chime in?
