CDG is a mess by any reasonable measure. It’s wonderfully French.....but just a nightmare for connecting. London did have an (almost) greenfield new airport which opened in 1991, it was the bright new future once. It’s not that BAA didn’t actually try and do better than LHR, they really did, it was that we (the market) looked and went “Nahhh”. So we all went back to Dorval, er Heathrow I mean.
