Short-haul economy connecting onto long-haul business - do I have lounge access?

Tomorrow I'm flying CDG-AMS in economy and AMS-PEK in business, both segments on the same ticket. Do I have access to the AF lounge in CDG? Thanks!

Misread your initial post sorry, I don’t believe you’d get access in CDG unless you are Skyteam Elite +.

do try it though, a friend of mine got access the other day just by asking nicely (was at a not so crowded 2G lounge though). Since they do provide “paid” access when lounge is not crowded, they can sometime wave the fee. Mention you’re connecting J in AMS

To answer my own question: both the check in and lounge stuff said I wasn't eligible, but when they scanned my BP the green light flashed so I got in!

Sounds like a scene from Little Britain. "Computer says no yes!"
