AF lounge access in JFK flying Alitalia Magnifica?

Will have a 5 hour layover in JFK prior to flying Magnifica class to Rome on Alitalia. With such a long layover, it would be nice to experience the new AF lounge and was curious if my ticket would provide access to that lounge given the AF and Alitalia are skyteam partners? If it is worth anything, I am Gold on Delta. While I'm at it, could I also enter the Korean Air lounge since they are Skyteam as well? thanks!

Buying lounge access now possible on kiosks in selected airports

From AF travel agent portal (France) :
Après une phase expérimentale menée avec succès, depuis le mercredi 27 mai 2015, la vente Accès Salon payant du T2E est disponible sur toutes les Bornes libre-service AF de CDG.

La nouvelle fonctionnalité des Bornes libre-service sera ensuite étendue aux accès salon du T2F et du hall 3 d'Orly à compter du 23 juin 2015.

Eligibilité et Périmètre

- Vol Long Courrier opéré par AF au départ de CDG
- Salons : EK, EL et EM
- Clients munis d'un billet AF
- Clients Flying Blue Silver*, Ivory* et/ou voyageant en cabine Premium Economy


* l'ensemble des membres du PNR peut profiter de l'offre payante sous réserve de disponibilités
Translation :
since 27th may 2015, it is now possible to buy lounge access from AF automated check-in kiosks in CDG 2E. This possibility will be available also for CDG2F and ORY W Hall 3 from 23rd june 2015.
Conditions (as of today, because will change in june with 2F and ORY):
- long haul flight AF-operated from CDG
- concerned lounges : T2E (K, L and M concourses)
- customers having an AF-coded ticket
- customers FB silver*, Ivory* and/or traveling in Premium Economy

* : all pax on the same PNR can benefit of the paid access, pending availability of sufficient seats in the lounge.

I'm confused about the Ivory access : did I miss something ? I thought Ivory members were not eligible in CDG ? The rules are changing so often that I'm loosing track !

Just to share, I had a 2 hour layover on a weekday morning in one of the 2F lounges and couldn't get a slot for a shower (had a dozen names ahead of me in the waitlist).

This weekend, I am flying through CDG with a five hour layover on a trip from Africa to Germany. In the past, I was able to use the nice lounge in the international terminal (not sure which that is). I was just told by a colleague, however, that the CDG-DUS flight has been moved to a different terminal in which Air France has only a tiny lounge with very little service provided and that passengers are immediately shuttled to that terminal with no opportunity to access the larger lounge.

Is that true? I am hoping there is a way to get to the nicer terminal for the five hour layover after deplaning.

Edit... I just confirmed that I fly into Terminal 2G from Africa and depart Terminal 2E for DUS.

it is rather the opposite : you will arrive from Africa in 2E and will go to 2G for the DUS flight.

Unfortunately, it is true. DUS flights have been moved to 2G where there is nothing but a small cabinet called a "lounge". Avoid it or after 5 hrs in, you'll be a good candidate for the hospital
The only alternative I see for you is to go to the arrival lounge in 2C to have shower and breakfast and then to reach 2G after. The arrival lounge is certainly not a place I would spend 5hrs but much better than 2G.

Thank you for the information, and I am sorry I mixed up the gates.

Is there anyway for me to remain in 2E after deplaning upon arrival from Africa, or will Air France really coral us towards 2G that quickly?
