JFK-CDG W to J for $489 today, 14 seats still available. On the fence, currently unemployed, but would love to actually sleep tonight. Still, I find AF service takes hours so I sometimes sleep less in Business.

Apologies if there is a corresponding AF thread, but I couldn't find it, and the offers seem to be very similar. And this is *technically* a KLM ticket, got rebooked at the last minute.

If you've not got status then I guess lounge access, sky priority, extra baggage, more leg room etc... For Cityhopper flights the on board product is the same as Economy Comfort really, except you get a different meal (and as someone who actually likes the cheese sandwiches in Y i'm not going to say better )

Does anyone know if for example one purchased an upgrade on the first leg of a connecting trip via AMS / CDG would the upgrade grant you access to the lounge at AMS / CDG before your connecting flight on top lounge access at the originating airport?

Nope, lounge access is always based on the departing flight (La PremiŤre being the only exception I'm aware of).

Was encouraged to upgrade via popup notification.
