Thank you.

CompManiac - 15-2-2009 @ 08:49 AM

a stopover in Paris may not exceed 24 hours only means, they fly into Paris from Asia and then on to your chosen destination (Marseille eg.). between incoming and outgoing flight may not be more than 24hrs, otherwise it's not considered a stopover (sorry, travel agent terms...)

so if you were to travel just to Paris you are just fine.

but, I'm actually gonna win this one, sorry... ;)
