    Hello All,

    I'm flying in on OpenSkies IAD-ORY, arriving at 0930, and then have a CDG-BEG flight departing at 1300.

    Question is- what would be the easiest/stress-free transfer?

    I know the 3 options are- taxi, AF bus, or RER train.

    Any thoughts/advice on choosing?

    BTW, ORY should be quiet upon arrival (saturday), I have Skyteam Elite, so checking should be easier at CDG, and carry-on only.

    Thanks!

    I'd choose a taxi... most stress-free by far, especially if there is traffic, etc. even on a weekend.

    Air France bus seems the best option : direct route (same as taxis ), shuttle every 30 mins, between 40 and 60 min drive depending on the traffic, pretty cheap (don't know if prices are still 10 euros like this last summer when I used it but i remember that air france shuttles between airports can be free of charge for FBlue elite members when flying on AF but I have no idea of the cabin class requirement)

    that explains why I was brushed off and told to take the train when I inquired about the bus service I saw advertised in the Air France magazine aboard their aircraft arriving Orly.

    Thanks for all the thoughts. I think the bus is close to €20 pp which would be cheaper than a taxi.

    So, skyteam elite will have to pay?

    I took the AF bus, very comfortable, stress free and I was able to relax.

    Thanks- thats what we'll probably do, assuming the OpenSkies arrival is on time or early.
