Looking at some Flying Blue redemption options, I saw an ATL-CDG-ZAG itinerary that might work for me. ZAG leg is on OU which departs from 2D, and it's a long transfer. Would I be able to make my way to the newest 2E lounge before going over to 2D for the ZAG flight? Apologies if the answer is obvious but I'm not at all familiar with CDG. Thanks!

That was fast! If you don't mind a follow up, what CDG lounge(s) would I be able to access on that itinerary?

I certainly donít mind
I suppose you are in J or are FB Gold/Platinum?
If yes, youíll have access to the DL SkyClub in ATL and to a contract lounge in CDG 2D.

I am indeed looking at J flights. Ugh I was hoping to experience an AF lounge at CDG, but I guess I'd have to settle for the contract lounge.

Quick question here - going from LHR to NRT via CDG; so a 2E to 2E connection.
Is 1hr 50 reasonable here, or should I go with the 4hr30 one. This is with luggage and in Y, so no lounge access. Don't particularly want to spend 4hrs in CDG if I dont have to ahead of a long flight.
I did a 1hr40 connection a few years back at FRA and didn't find it too bad so wondering if similar?

Thanks

Kevin

Flying in J with Air France, also i'm gold on FB but i want to know if it's possible to use Lounges at gate L or M even if my next flight is at gate K?
So if it's possible to switch gate before the flight, i have 5h layover

Thanks for the answer

I`m FBG flying YUL-CDG-AMS-CPH in 2 weeks, with a layover at CDG of 3H25. As far as I remember, i will not have admission to any one of the AF, Non Schengen lounges in terminal 2E. I have to use the lounge where my onward flight departs (Schengen lounge), is that correct?
Was sort of hoping that my memory was playing tricks with me

Normally, you are only allowed to access the terminal/concourse you are departing from.
