We are both arriving from the US, about half an hour apart from each other, on nonstop Delta/Air France flights to CDG. Both flights arrive at terminal 2E.
Is it possible for us to meet somewhere in 2E prior to clearing passport control and customs?
I haven't flown into CDG in a long time, so I don't know if we'll deplane into a sterile area where you are shunted to passport control and/or security rescreening immediately, or if we'll arrive into the airside area and be able to wander around (and find the later arriving person's arrival gate).
I am aware there is a meeting point in 2E landside, and if we have to meet there after clearing immigration and customs individually it is completely fine. But it's nice to wait with someone in those long passport control lines, especially as we are non-EU/EEA citizens.
