Well, the day arrived eventually.

My son drove me the the local park & ride for the airport bus, to connect me with Air France's 11:15 flight to Paris CdG. All was going well until the airline and the airport (I suspect the latter) organised a 25 minute delay.

My transfer time in Paris was 70 minutes. I made it, but it was close. It was helpful that the transfer was within Terminal 2E - both being Air France non-Schengen flights.

The 15:15 to Casablanca was a little late too, but only 10-15 minutes.

I decided on the train into the city centre. First of all it was rush hour. Then my hotel (Novotel) is just across the street from the Casa Port station - terminus for the airport trains. Last but not least, I was in no hurry.

The service runs every hour - not quite 24 hours - and costs 43 Dirhams (€3.8 or £3.4) in 2nd class. It takes 50 minutes.

ONCF's "offering" in 2nd class isn't luxury, but I may splash out on 1st class next time.

The last time I visited Morocco I used the train a lot (Casablanca - Marrakech - Meknes - Fes - Casablanca) and took a 1st class seat whenever I could.
