Since she'll be traveling between two EU member countries (Romania and France), the formalities will be minimal. Assuming that she has Romanian citizenship, she has the right to travel freely inside the EU. She needs to have a valid passport or identity card. Unless something really unusual happens (e.g. her papers are damaged, her name matches that of a ...
I would probably teach the family member to hear (not read) the keywords in the usual questions that are asked and to respond with simple phonetically memorized answers: where - as in Where are you coming from? or Where you have been? This can be answered with the city name your relative has just left purpose or business or reason - as in What is the ...
The solution to the language barrier problem may be much simpler then relying on the immigration to provide the interpreter for the native language of your family member. Given that he/she is coming from your native country it is much simpler to do one of the following: Find a person on the plane who speaks one of the major languages as well as the native ...
This is not a rare issue or something that immigration officers do not know how to deal with. It is very common for all different employees in airports to face this especially the immigration/customs people.

The key is putting your bag ...
Given the photo in your question, I do not think there will be any problem, all the items shown are not listed under the prohibited carry-on items unless the ink will be in containers more than 100 ml or whatever quantity allowed by the airport authorities for liquids. For more information about items and whether they are allowed on board or only in ...

More of an answer to your secondary request, but FlightChecker by MoneySavingExpert is my go-to tool for 'flights under £X' using low-cost carriers to European destinations (either a specific place, anywhere in a given country or simply anywhere in Europe), within a range of dates or on specific dates.
So this had been bugging me as it'd never occurred to me before not to trust their scales, but your question makes perfect sense, especially as you've checked all your scales. So I did some digging. CBS Local in Boston did an investigative spot check with an inspector - (all airports are meant to be tested and standardised) and found 30% of them to be ...
