AF Lounge in Beijing?

Which lounge can I use at Beijing Airport when flying Air France Business class? Is there a choice between BGS and Air China Lounge or...?

IIRC, AF uses a the BGS lounge which is not that bad. Some workstations with free internet access, hot and cold meal, including dim-sum, large choice of booze and...a groom in the toilet who cleans it up after your visit ! Pretty disturbing when you're stuck inside due to the traveller's tummy

Last time I was there, there was no choice : shared lounge, which is quite decent.

Was PEK in dec, the lounge is in my opinion worthless, could be crouded due to the efect that this is a shared lounge, the lounge is suspended and open 1 stair near the shops, quite noisy and poor service.

The shared lounge (with BA and others) is not bad at all. MUCH better than the equivalent at PVG which is an absolute shocker.

Fully agree on this.. AF has 10 flights per week (+7 codeshare with MU) to PVG with very high load in biz class + KLM 7 flight per week and they are unable to get a proper common lounge for this destination.

The PVG lounge is just a joke. Hopefully when they will open the new terminal in PVG AF/KLM might finally decide to open their own????

Nothing has changed so far...
14 flights per week now for AF + MU codeshare, and still invited to the cramped lounge in the middle of the terminal, (shared access with KE passengers as well)
AF remains in the older terminal of PVG

Well, AF remains in the old terminal at PEK. So perhaps, the lounge is less crowded with all the Star Alliance (and others) having moved to Terminal 3 at the end of last month. The lounge itself was (is) worthless...

When you look at how many flights there is from PEK and PVG now (AF and KL) and how full they are most of the days in biz and first it is amaizing that AF still offers those very poor lounge in both airport or that Skyteam doesn't try to make something in common
