Arriving at CDG the other day I did for the first time see the building "revealed" (before I didn't pay attention and/or it was hidden behind scaffolding) - and was thinking that it's huge, wondering whether its sole use is that of a lounge? The picture seems to suggest so. On the other hand, it needs to replace two existing lounges, add a bit of capacity, and from the picture it seems as if they've been quite generous with space for things that are decoration rather than seating space, restaurant space, etc.

Opening still in 2020?

I think yes, unless they decide to postpone some investments because of the current virus crisis

I was looking at the building yesterday, and yes, it is quite big, but not too big, I think.

You can find a bit more context, but few details in this post on the Air France corporate communications site posted 6 days ago.

sorry : I was not specific enough. AF has closed all lounges located in France.
I have no info related to other lounges outside its home country

JOUY31 Jun 12, 20 12:09 pm

2F1 lounge expected to re-open on June 16th, 2F2 on June 23rd; 2E-K in early August after some refresh work.

Can anybody comment on whether the lounges will have any offerings (apart from seating and toilets)?
The KLM Lounge in AMS has been open but without any food or drinks. I hope AF at least has some basic refreshments in the lounges they open, at least drinks and snacks.

Edit: Apparently some food and drinks are back at AMS Lounge 52

2F1 lounge yesterday evening : not a lot of people (while the gates area were quite busy). Both floors were open but the buffet was dressed only on the upper floor. It was the classical buffet as before Covid, but no more self-service. There is an attendant serving you. The rest is the same (fridges with soft drinks, wine bottles in self-service).
