Anyone any ideas why this ridiculous state of affairs exists ?

SNCF obviously don't have any international fares programmed into
their ticket machines at Biarritz. That doesn't excuse the sloppy
station staff though.

Might be tricky to sell half-international tickets
for the morning section of overnighters.

already daft that Renfe can operate from Spain to Hendaye (but not
FROM Hendaye to Spain), and SNCF can operate to Irun but not FROM Irun
to France.

The northbound broad gauge track extends into Hendaye station and
gives onward standard gauge connections into FRance. The southbound
standard gauge track extends into Irun station and gives onward broad
gauge connections into Spain. Presumably no-one sees the need to run
trains in the other direction?

I was on the very first service TGV from Paris to Irun.

They have been discontinued last December. If you want to travel
southbound further than Hendaye, change to El Topo.
