I am not familiar with overnight public transport options from the Gare du Nord to CDG, so the previous evening I reserved a 'navette' for €26.
Said navette picked me up promptly at 04:15, arriving at CDG 2D shortly after 05:00.
Time for a quick coffee before checking in. I was travelling on a standard fare which does not include hold luggage and the best seats are extra. I declined but was still assigned an emergency exit row window seat. The middle seat was also free.
After security I grabbed some breakfast and had a smoke downstairs in the designated outdoor area.
Once again I was very impressed by the CC. They are always friendly and do not hesitate to help pax with HBO.
I dozed for the 3 hours, catching a now familiar glimpse of the runway at GIB and of Tangier.
We arrived at Marrakech at 08:30 local time to join a horrible immigration queue – easily 60 minutes – and the only negative aspect of the trip.
