Lounge Review: Air France Lounge CDG 2F

Air France Lounge Paris CDG 2F Buffet

Air France Lounge CDG 2F is one of many different lounges at the primary hub of Air France. The lounge is located in Terminal 2F and is mainly used by passengers who transfer between two European flights. We were actually surprised how small and crowded the lounge was upon our arrival. Overall, our lounge review shows you why we didn’t really “fell in love” with the Air France Lounge Charles de Gaulle 2F.

The Air France Lounge CDG 2F is a very good option for everyone who is transferring between two flights which arrive and depart at Terminal 2F.

The lounge was extremly crowded when we entered it

This is most likely the case when you are transferring from one European destination to another one in Paris as flights to Germany, Italy and several other countries leave at Terminal 2F.

From the Air France Lounge CDG 2F, it’s actually not any far to most gates of the terminal.

Seating in the Air France Lounge CDG 2F

The Air France Lounge CDG 2F has two floors which means that you can find a spot either in the upper floor (with more light and better views) or the lower floors (which is actually a basement with some windows).

Air France Lounge Paris CDG 2F Seating

There are plenty of seats, but the lounge tends to be extremly crowded

Both areas are pretty much of the same size and come with different seating styles. What you’ll find the most are plain leather chairs next to a small table.

While there are mostly armchairs, there’s also an area with dining tables

I really find this layout to be rather fitting to an airport lounge as most guests are traveling alone.

Moreover, there are some dining tables in the Air France Lounge CDG 2F. All seating is quite comfortable and is also quite inviting.

Interestingly, there was some private seating in one corner of the lounge

Yet, it is worth pointing out that there was rarely any spot left in rush hour which is a real issue as there is no other lounge nearby.

Buffet in the Air France Lounge CDG 2F

We are actually used to the sparse offerings at the Air France Lounge Berlin, but were surprised to also find a rather disappointing buffet at the Air France Lounge CDG 2F.

There’s plenty of alcohol, but not a lot to eat in the lounge

For breakfast, the food offerings were limited to some chocolate croissants, normal croissants, bread with jam and some cake.

That’s pretty much the whole selection for breakfast

There was also a very small extra buffet with some yoghurts, some ham and cheese as well as fruit salad and milk. While the quality of everything we tried was decent, we found the choice to be quite bad for a lounge at an airline’s hub.

The drink offerings including decent hot options, some juices and soft drinks was totally fine at the same time.

Entertainment in the Air France Lounge CDG 2F

Staying entertained is not really our focus when visiting a lounge as we usually have either work to do or something to read with us. Nevertheless, it was interesting to have a glimpse on the offerings of the Air France Lounge CDG 2F. At first, I did only find French newspapers, but there’s also a selection of a few international newspapers. Yet, there were no international magazines available.

There are also neither television nor computers in the lounge which makes it kind of boring if you didn’t bring anything. The Wi-Fi at the Air France Lounge CDG 2F was average at best, too. Yet, this issue may have occurred due to the lounge being overcrowded.

Bottom line Air France Lounge CDG 2F

I have to admit that I was a little surprised that visiting the Air France Lounge CDG 2F was such an average experience. While we had a decent experience flying with Air France in the regional Economy Class, we found the lounge experience to be underwhelming.

Air France Lounge Paris CDG 2F Washrooms

The washrooms are a little old, but still okay

Nothing is really bad as there is comfortable seating, a choice of a few food items and some entertainment options. Nevertheless, nothing was really “great” at the same time. It’s just the perfect wording to call the Air France Lounge CDG 2F average.

 

Curious what the world of lounges has to offer in comparison?
