Skyteam Lounge LHR VIP area

I have an upcoming flight of LHR-CDG-JFK on Air France. The Paris-New York leg is in first class. Is there a VIP area of the T4 lounge for first class passengers? If so, would I have access to it? Is it anything special? I do like the regular lounge quite a lot.

Have used that lounge for years, never seen anything like that. Good luck. YMMV.

When they have P pax, I'm pretty sure they reserve some seats for those pax in the lounge. After that the lounge amenities are the same. But the best will be for the connection in CDG

I don't remember seeing it either. Will report back.

IIRC, the upper floor of the ST lounge has areas reserved for VIPs and F paxs.

Not really, you do not have showers, massage chairs, nor oxygen bar upstairs. There are also private rooms upstairs that you won't find downstairs.

Oxygen bar has not been there for a while, IIRC.

It is generally more quiet.
But the layout is not THAT different (same ugly corporate design)

And the basic answer is no. While there is a separate VIP room, I don't appear to be I enough for it to be open.

But the lounge is so quiet @ 8:30 on a Saturday morning it hardly matters.

Hi all, not a SkyTeamer any more but quick question: do I get access to this lounge flying business LHR-CDG on AF? Only a 50-minute flight but seems to qualify as "international" per SkyTeam lounge rules. Thanks!

You should.

By the way, on two subsequent trips, I was granted access to the private room upstairs when transferring to a Premiere flight out of CDG.
