I hadn't noticed that AF don't themselves fly to AUH, I flew out via CDG on an AF marketed EY flight so it would seem reasonable that an AF marketed flight would grant access in AUH but since when does reason apply I found it quite odd that on Facebook KLM were quite sure I would have no access due to not travelling on a Skyteam flight, whereas Air France said I should use this lounge.

I've sent another question to AF to see what they say about AF marketed flights.

FYI, I have updated the wiki with the new (BGO, ORK, WRO, DFW, TPE, UIO, CTA, BEG, NBO) and cancelled routes (IKA) announced by AF during the last months + some lounge infos that were missing and for which I found something. But we are still missing information for some of those routes.

I'll try to post some pictures and reports when I visit the lounge tomorrow. With the current yellow vest protests in Paris I wonder how it will feel to take tea in the style of Marie Antoinette! Hope there is no guillotine at the end of the Sky Priority security line.

La Premiere Lounge in MIA

Would anyone know what lounge La Premiere uses in MIA, is it just a room within the Delta lounge?

Thank you in advance.

I don't recall seeing a separate room at the MIA SkyClub for La Premiere, so just the regular areas in the lounge, I think.

I am sure AF P pax are not sent in the horrible DL SkyClubs with their so-called hummous, plastic cheese and other horrible stuff they serve. Is there a VS lounge in MIA ? It seems AF is sometimes using VS lounge for their P pax (e.g. SFO).
Also there is P to MIA only when the A380 is used.

No there's not, Virgin passengers use the SkyClub as well.

I am here right now, and the upstairs area is now quite nice. Our Ultimate friends will be happy to know that no less than 3 white clothed tables are reserved for them, complemented with a large sign on the to let everyone know how special you are (I would be really embarrassed personally).

There is an area overlooking the stairs that is roped off and an AF staff who is there to cater to the P pax needs. So, yes it is the DL lounge but segregated seating, car to the plane and "waiter" service.

Well I may take back my initial comment hah! I'm currently sitting in the 2G lounge at CDG and I wish I could access the Ultimate space ... This is a zoo in here! First time in this terminal and hopefully the last - not even mentioning the dreadful and glauquissime connection between 2E and 2G ...

For KIX, I don't think it is the JL "Sakura" Lounge anymore but rather the "KIX airside lounge".
Voucher given at check-in desk to access the lounge as STE+ (after security check & passport control, but before the shuttle to the gates AF/KL are using).
Decent experience (especially food and service) although it seemed to me quite small for a lounge.

Currently at the AF Lounge in BOD terminal B. It is correct that there is a contract lounge available, for pax doing BOD->AMS and thus departing from Terminal A (A and B aren't connected airside).

BOD->LYS and BOD->LIL used to leave from Terminal A, but they now depart from Terminal B 99% of the time.
Also, Chalair pax cannot access the lounge.

As I'm doing BOD->LYS, I cannot access Terminal A.


​​​​​​Also, I'm here during dinner time. The snack offer is better than the current LYS patio: during 12-14h and 17:30-closure, they have additionnal aperitives: small wraps and similar starters. Other than that, you have the minimal service as reported by Goldorak.
