My sister and I are flying EI to CDG (currently booked for late April with a wary eye on Covid, so no need to lecture or bring any of that up).
I'm a little unsure, in a 'normal' world, what the process at Dublin would be (security, passport, etc) - both inbound and outbound. We are on 1 ticket, with checked luggage.
So upon arrival from the US, headed to CDG, is there anything will we will have to do, other than finding our gate?
It's my understanding that for return to the US, we get off the plane, have to go thru security again, then US Pre clearance (where we identify our checked bag on video), then another security check - is this also correct? Also, are we able to avail ourselves of shopping before we get to Pre Clearance (yes, i'm looking at a buying an inexpensive bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream on the way home).
The Dublin airport's not entirely clear - and while I know there are connection ambassadors, I prefer to overplan and not just go with the flow entirely :)
