You are welcome. It is a pleasure to be able to fill one of the few gaps in the wiki for one of the less travelled-to destinations.

i did look in the Wiki and it was not clear to me (see below). Arriving from JFK I suppose we will go through customs and be thrown through arrivals airside, and I do not know which hall our flight will leave from. So how can we be sure to get into a lounge? We will be connecting to a domestic flight, it could leave from Hall 4... or will we be able to stay airside and pick any lounge we want? We will be flying in business with Platinum status.



Wiki:
  • ORY (West terminal) :
    • Hall 1 (Schengen) : contract lounge (Premium Traveler). More info here
    • Hall 2 (Schengen) - AF lounge : more info here and here
    • Hall 3 (non-Schengen) - AF lounge
    • Hall 4 lounge is now closed permanently since 1st June 2016.

I can’t tell you either from which hall you will depart from, except if it is a Navette flight (TLS/BOD/MPL/NCE) which depart from Hall 2. If you depart from Hall 4, indeed no lounge.

TLS airport

Name of the lounge

La croix du sud (contract lounge)

This contract lounge isn't advertised on the Air France website, thankfully there is this wiki.

Entry: usual Skyteam requirements.
Or 25€
Or owning one of those passes: Priority Pass, Diners Club International, Lounge Pass, Lounge Key, Lounge Buddy, Dragon Pass

The nice Dragon lady told me that I could invite a Pax as per my FB Platinum status allows me to.
​​​​​I also was allowed to take pictures, see below.

Location
Airside, around gate 33.
Air France & KLM flights usually depart from gates ~B25, so closer to security check B. It takes a 3 minuted walk at the right of said check-in B to reach the lounge.
​​​​​

Food offer
Sweet and salty snacks, yogurts, fruits.

Drinks offer
Soft drinks and hot drinks (self service)
Alcoholic drinks: a beer, a few wines and spirits (self)

Services
Wifi: YES
Showers: NO
Toilets: YES
Quiet zone: No, but the first floor is quieter. They also have reserved "phone call" areas, for those PAX who feel the need to shout their call to everybody. Sadly a pax sitting just in front of one of those areas was having a noisy call and didn't use them.
Business area: NO
Spa: NO
TV area: They advertise it on the website, although I missed it.
Passengers are called: NO
Information screen: YES
Newspapers: short selection
Computers and printers available.

Number of seats
For around 100 people.
Downstairs has tables for ~20 people, 40 added single seats, ~20 seats sofas altogether, upstairs around 20 seats of all kind.

Design
Red&Yellow everywhere, otherwise regular lounge design.

Level of noise
Medium downstairs, quiet upstairs, unless somebody feels free to shout at the phone.

Other information
See pictures.

Temporary partial closing of 2F2 lounge

Having a flight from 2F, I received an e-mail from AF telling me that the 2F2 lounge is partially closed from Jan 8 to Feb 4 for renovation. I don't know what they're doing since this lounge has already been recently renovated. The lounge is still open but operates at reduced capacity, so expect some crowding.

The AF lounge at BLR is now the Plaza Premium near Gate 18, if some kind person would like to update the Wiki.

Very busy and noisy before the 01:55 AF flight to CDG, with limited drinks. I did not try the food.

The lower floor is closed. The lounge doesn't announce what exactly they're doing either, though.

No. as indicated in the wiki, the full reopening is for June 2018. Today, if they are on-time, they are supposed to reopen the renovated half and start the renovation of the 2nd non-renovated half.
