Was in P lounge this week. Sad to say it was pretty empty ...
AF should regret their recent dramatic increase of P lounge access vouchers from 300Ä to 500Ä for J ticket holders ...

knowing the current context, itís hard to say if this is the reason or because of the virus. Likely both.

for sure virus first as most of companies turned into a kind of travel ban .
Wih decent prices of P vouchers, they could increase the visits of the lounge to generate a bit extra $$$

Definitely...
I am not sure how many of us are using miles to book P tickets but the recent increases make it almost impossible

I was thinking about actually paying money for a P ticket. But on most connections and same travel dates AF is just twice as expensive.

Precisely. Those are the two that I usually compare as I can combine my longhaul destination with a stopover in one of my two bases, Paris and Zurich. ZRH-CDG-GRU for several dates I checked was >12,000 EUR. CDG-ZRH-GRU Swiss was 6,900 EUR. To get a more decent AF fare I would have needed to book 60 days in advance (impossible for me) or spend the weekend at destination (not possible either).

Do not you get discounts with your corporate scheme ? Most of companies do not pay this full price

Thank you matmatlr. Your post is bringing a bit of fresh air during this horrible period.
