Smile Air France/KLM lounge meeting thread

Welcome to the updated Air France/KLM lounge meeting thread.

Plagiarized from the Delta Moderator slippahs, the idea has been copied to the Flying Blue Forum (as the other format was quite time intensive).

In short, you can fill in your details using the form if you are willing to sponsor or request access to a lounge.

To see the actual list of sponsors / requests made, please see the spreadsheet. As the spreadsheet updates every 5 minutes it may be possible that your request made is not directly visible.

All listings available as per 7 July have been copied into the spreadsheet. For completeness sake you are requested to add all future sponsor/requests using the form.

Is there a "lounge meet-up" thread for AF? I remember seeing ones for other airlines, perhaps LH...

In any case, I'll be in the CDG 2F lounge this evening, around 1830 to 2300. Can guest one. If anyone will be there, do holler!

P.S. I still don't have a FT tag and haven't seen any around...

FB Lounge Meeting Thread?

I always liked the lounge meeting thread we had in the M&M forum
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles...-meetings.html
would you agree that we should have a thread like that for our FB forum, where we post meeting availability around the world?

I would usher to you all that I would keep the thread updated, if you made the effort to post your availability

Can we make it a sticky in top FB forum, so it includes AF and KL lounges?

I post in LH lounge forum whenever I can, and have guested people in AF lounges before, so it would be nice to have one place for it.

Or as they do it: one can say [if they want to] that s/he will be in that lounge at certain time - and then add if they can/want to help anybody enter as a guest.

Yes, I think making it a sticky would be a great idea. I also wondered why there wasn't one like the one on the LH forum. Hmm so shall it be this thread or the other one just posted about this topic?

"Assure" not "usher", I think?

Yes I would like to see such a thread and it being made a sticky! I did try to start one recently but there's not much "business" so far.
