Unfortunately, departures and arrivals are thoroughly separated in T2E, so you won't be able to access any of the 2E peers if your connection departs from 2G.
You can access the arrivals lounge (if you fly in Business Class or if Flying Blue Gold or Platinum) located in the terminal 2C if you don't mind to go landside.

you can't stay in 2E. The only alternative if you don't want to go to 2G immediately is to go landside, as if you were ending your trip in Paris, and do whatever you want (including the arrival lounge in 2C).

Thanks for the info, everyone.

A detailed description of the BOD lounge has been posted here
http://corporate.airfrance.com/en/pr...in-bordeaux-1/


THE NEW AIR FRANCE LOUNGE IN BORDEAUX IN A NUTSHELL:
- A larger and more comfortable lounge (180 sq. m. compared with 126 previously);
- 60 seats available;
- A personalized welcome by Air France agents, to assist each customer within the framework of his/her trip;
- A relaxation and work area and a large convivial guest table;
- A completely new catering offer, including a selection of Bordeaux wines available late afternoon
- Free Wi-Fi;
- A wide choice of regional, national and international press, as well as many available for download from the Air France Press App on smartphone and tablet;
- An ideal location in hall B, near the boarding gates;
- High-end furnishings and contemporary decor with furniture exclusively created for Air France, an architectural concept designed by Brandimage, a design and branding consulting agency;
- Access reserved for HOP! Air France SkyTeam Elite Plus (Flying Blue Platinum, Flying Blue Gold) customers and La Première and Business customers with a connection at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
the catering seems to be slightly upgraded:

The catering offer has also been redesigned and is adapted to the time of day, with biscuits in the morning, mini-sandwiches and savoury canapés at mealtimes and cakes and sweet biscuits at tea time. Throughout the day, hot and cold drinks are also available. Bordeaux wines are also available late afternoon. Renewed regularly over the months and seasons, customers can discover different regional wines, in cooperation with the Interprofessional Council of Bordeaux wines
Are there no AF flights in the evening? No food and wine description for late departures...

Quick question on the CDG lounges (I didnt find it in the thread or elsewhere, but sorry if it's somewhere else and I missed it !)

I've seen that, in some cases, it's possible to get from one concourse of the 2E terminal to another (for example from L to M with the bus, and then back with the same bus - not sure if it's possible to get out at another terminal).
Has anyone tried to do this in order to get to a "better" AF lounge ? For example, for going to the M lounge instead of the vastly inferior L lounge ?

It never hurts to ask a transfer desk, but personally, I would not endure the hassle of a double security check just for hot food.

True!
My impression was, though, that the bus line that tours the non-schengen terminals does not require one to go through security again - so that specific point wouldn't be an issue.

No, it's not possible to go to a concourse where you're not departing from. This was allowed exceptionally last year when K lounge was closed for renovation.

I am sitting in the new BOD lounge right now. Very nice. There is no more code to type to enter but a dragon is there. It still smells new furniture. Some AF staff has been sent from Paris to manage the opening.

Thanks. Can you share pictures of it ?

Improved compared to the previous Patio :
- food : to the usual biscuits and crackers have been added small sandwiches
- drinks : there is a sort of "self service wine bar" but do not expect todrink Grand Crus

The atmosphere is really nice IMO : great furniture, colors, fabrics.

Unfortunately no :(

The fact that the lounge was quite crowded (Thursday evening, during Vinexpo) did not encourage to take pictures.

I have a picture of the really nice tiling with AF logo on it though but the presence of my shoes on it makes me a bit reluctant to post it ;)

Is it possible to get from 2E to T1 airside? Any recent experiences [using Shuttle]?

Reason I am asking is that I've dropped from FB G to FB S, so don't have lounge access anymore.

However, I do have Lounge Club membership and they have a lounge at CDG T1, but I am flying back to LHR from 2E. On the outbound, they have lounge at LHR T4, which makes it easy.

This is what Lounge Club app says about it:

Absolutely impossible if you do not hold a boarding pass for a flight departing in T1.
