Preferred First Class Lounge at CDG-T2?

Anyone knows which is/are the preferred first class lounge at CDG T2? I will be taking JAL from CDG to HND and not familiar with lounge access there and found no thread on this topic. Thanks.

BTW, I have no premium status with JAL for now.

There is only one lounge that you have access to, which is the Air France business class lounge.

Air France guards it La Premier First Class Lounge heavily, and literally only passengers on Air France F gets access to it.

You only get access to the one that is i the area that JAL departs from. That is K if I remember correctly. So no lounge hopping.

Hi,

If in JAL F you get escorted ( I did) to a small ( 20 seats perhaps) special section at the side of the Air France K lounge for JAL F ( separated from the main lounge section by tensa Barriers and a JAL F sign. It has a few snacks and a few bottles of wine /champagne and soft drinks. For anything else you use the main lounge. There is a small selection of magazines. There is nothing to stop you grabbing food and drink from the main lounge and take it to your seat. It is a large lounge with more seating and dining up the stairs so although it was busy there was plenty of seats and felt it was a very good business class lounge.

For 8 F pax in JAL F the 20 seats are plenty. The room tempreature is and the chairs are comfortable but there is no windows just walls.

PS check in opened at 4pm sharp for the flight and a queue built up from around 320pm onwards but just before the check in opens, a staff member went down the line directing F pax to the check in desks so if you are queuing you will be checked in quickly


Regards

TBS
