Even the signage by the lift to the lounge area at MAN still mentions the Escape Lounge for AF/KLM, so it is not just the website at fault. It still seems like a temporary arrangement and the staff in the 1903 lounge do not know if it is to be made permanent. All users should praise 1903 whenever a chance arises!

By the way, I found out that the papers in 1903 cannot be taken away by PAX. So it is not quite perfect...

Well, I know two people who have asked to be Quality Observers on an upcoming ex-MAN flight and I'm sure they'll leave very positive comments about the lounge ;)

interesting. The Dzahri lounge is closed. TAP and Iberia pax are redirected to the AF lounge instead.

OMG ! :eek:

CAN VIP lounge T2
Please remove or resize if required

A very nice lounge with a reasonable selection of food and drink and many types of seating. WiFi is good but most social media is blocked. The only view is of the corridor s and shops below.

As it happens, my partner will be transiting CDG at the same time with a similar layover (also on AF, not in La Premiere, and not the same flights).

Does anyone know the details/policy about having him join me in the lounge? It seems straightforward (I let them know whatís going on, he checks in at the desk, and then comes in once Iím there). But any advice or insight is welcome.

Many thanks.

no need to ask in several threads. Multiple posting is not allowed on FT.

Does anyone know if I am on an AF ticket arriving into terminal 2E but departing 2C if I can gain lounge access in 2E before transitting? The onward flight is an AF codeshare but I have over 6 hours to kill and the lounge I can access in 2E only opens 3 hours before that flight hence using a lounge on arrival in 2E.

Thanks for any assistance

You cannot access 2E lounges without a boarding pass for a flight departing from 2E.

Wow, 3 different kind of sausages! That is the triple of what is offered at STR. :D
(Of course, MUC lounge is at least triple the size and capacity of what STR could offer :D )

Orly West Hall 4
Maybe helpful for some (I posted questions earlier): Hall 4 at Orly Ouest does not have a AF lounge. There is a Icare lounge, EUR 30 per person, fairly decent but nothing special, not in the Priority Pass network either. They say Priority Pass is coming, no word about AF (whereas in Hall 1, the Premium Traveller lounge is accessible to Platinum). Not really worth it unless you have a very long layover. No bathroom (one is just outside), no shower.

I can see that JIB is still a question mark.
Happy to report that passengers can use the Air France lounge at JIB.

I was on a KQ flight so I canít comment on the specifics of the AF flight, but I can say the following for sure:

The lounge is after gate 1 security and opens c. 1 hour before boarding time
There are c. 25 seats so it must get really crowded before the AF flight
Good selection of beverages, food consists mostly of mignardises and is not super filling
The bathroom is really shabby, donít plan on number twoing at the airport

Lounge entrance

Bar area with snacks, beverages, and newspapers

Another sitting area

It is really nice. AF has sone a great job there.
The entrance has changed (but I donít know if this will be permanent or if it is just a temporary entrance during the renovation work). When you pass security in L concourse, you have to go to the extreme right and you will see signs for the lounge.

In the access coridor, itís a huge TV wall displaying small bubbles mimicking a Champagne glass. Well done. Then you arrive in the main room. Similar design as in 2G or ORY hall 2 lounges. There is an open kitchen area which was not in function when I was there (it was outside meal times).

Then you have corridors leading to :
- the Clarins spa (bigger than before) where you can register for a massage via an I-pad
- restrooms, showers
- some quieter smaller rooms
- a rest area similar as the one in the P lounge
- and the private room for Ultimates ;) Ö with its private bar and newspaper/magazines selection !

One personal criticism : all the secondary area of the lounge are blind (no window).
Again, big thumbs up to AF for making such a nice lounge ! ^ ^ ^

Hello I am new here :)

I have a question about this lounge, would I be able to get here when flying Schengen? I know in Amsterdam you can easily move between the schengen and non-schengen areas at the airport to use the other lounge. Is this possible in CDG?

The reason I am asking is that I will fly schengen (CDG to AMS) and would love to use this lounge. I will plan either a long layover or arrive to the airport well before my flight.

Hope somebody can answer me :)
