Stuck In Paris- Help needed
« on: April 26, 2017, 01:59:51 PM »
Anyone know who I can call to get food to hotel near CDG? Delta nonstop was diverted and they are delayed until tomorrow morning.
I emailed the Chabad listing closest to CDG, but no one answered the phone.

Why not just Uber into the city?
Enjoy a delicious dinner at Darjeeling, Thai One, or L'inte Cafe, see the Eiffel Tower...

Yup.
Nobody else around that wants to grab a bite to eat?

What time did they land in CDG? When do they depart?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

The train system isn't very hard to figure out. I flew into CDG, took the train to a restaurant, the Eiffel tower and back to sleep in the airport. Especially if Delta is offering any vouchers for the stay that shouldn't be hard.

Landed around 12,  tried to fix problem for four hours! Finally deplaned, and just got to hotel. It's 8:15 PM now and they need to be at airport tomorrow @6AM. Are restaurants open late in Paris?

Don't know if he's in the mood for any more adventure. I actually got him rebooked on a KLM flight, but they didn't let him on, as he got to the gate 15 minutes before departure and he wasn't checked in. Then he had to wander the airport to find the group again.

Take a cab, save the receipt for cab and food, try sending it into Delta for reimbursement.

If you insist on the closest to airport, Sarcelles is a suburb which is closer, has a huge jewish community (including Chabad) and many restaurants
