CDG Lounge Access 6AM flight

For LH1053 which departs at 6.05 what are the lounge arrangements for SEN?

The LH lounge opens at 5:45 and although the *A opens at 5:00 it unfortunately located before security (unless I am mistaken).

Are the opening times for the SEN lounge correct?

If so, it's a shame the LH lounges can't open at 5AM too for their own status pax.

Am I to believe that every FTer has managed to avoid this flight and has no experience to advise me!

Why on earth do you want to be so early at the airport? If there is one time in Paris where you can be sure of empty roads and timely arrival, it 5am in the morning

Anyway the counters open at 5am and operations at 5.45am. I'll PM you further details so you can call and verify the info yourself

Thanks Oliver!

I don't mind the early flights, I recall out of TXL the SEN lounge would open at around 5AM giving plenty of time for a breakfast! But at TXL I can arrive at 5:30 or even later but in Paris I doubt it very much.

AFAIK the lounge is nothing to get excited about...

Indeed, I'm not expecting it to be, nor do I want to maximise my time in it, I'd just prefer to wait in a lounge and nearer to my gate.

SN Lounge Access at CDG

I searched and couldn't find anything, so apologies in advance if there's an answer somewhere.

Flying out of CDG on SN (connecting to BRU-IAD) in business.
I know there are several T1 lounges I theoretically have access to. The Star website indicates there is a contract lounge for Brussels and Eva passengers, though it provides little information (and I'd imagine would have to be pre-immigration if it combines Schengen and non-Schengen). Is my best bet just the LH lounge?

Thanks in advance.

According to the SN website they use the SAS lounge in CDG T1:

Exactly, so no access for FTL, only SEN/*G.

LH Business Lounge CDG

Does MM FT status allow access to the LH business lounge at CDG on LOT flights?

Yes, if you can make it to the door (not sure if they're in the same satelite).

Normally they are. But I also saw LOT departing from another satelite - there is a SAS lounge there, but FTL would not be sufficient for access.

Having time to burn (and LO being inflexible about letting me go on an earlier flight) I took a hike to the SAS lounge once w/o any problems - but that was a while ago.

LOT departs from satellite 7 and uses the SAS lounge. You can certainly choose to use the LH lounge instead, which has far better food and beverage offerings, though it is worth noting that unlike the SAS lounge it is completely underground. The major issue is that you will need to go through security twice - first at satellite 6 to use the LH lounge and again at S7 to board your flight. The security folks may let you know that you are at the wrong satellite but will let you in.

Frankly, if you have time to spare, then skip the LH lounge and just head over to the Star Alliance Lounge in the main building, where you'll find significantly better amenities (despite low ceilings and no views per se.) You will have to go through passport control (leaving the Schengen zone) but that's typically better than going through security twice. Just in case, ask the checkin agent for a Star Alliance lounge invitation card - you won't need it to enter the lounge but it may be handy at passport control should you get questions.
