Welcome to this new series, I decided this time to translate to English some intra- European flights just to have more variety in the FR English data base. The routing looks like this:



transit cdg


We had a three hours layover in CDG and needed to transit from 2F to 2G

The signs are clear but the yellow color is not, in my opinion, the nicest:

The FIDS, the flight is scheduled on time, but Air France is very well known for announcing the delays at the very last minute:

Those information screens are a great addition:

We boarded the bus and were alone inside:

We went to the lounge that just reopened after two weeks of renovations:

I had been informed that the floor went to an extensive clean up but did not notice anything special:

Nothing changed in the lavatories also:

OK, I didn't notice any big change. Let's see the buffet with here the coffee station:

This is something I will never understand. The lounge has bacon the whole day on offer and also a soup or quiche. When the lounge opened Air France promoted it with "An open kitchen where cooks and bakers will prepare fresh food". I have never seen anything like this since the opening.

Some breads:

Those waffles remind me about something.

Smoothies and raspberry tartlets:

I really like the new livery:

E70:

The gate is not yet announced but the AF app gives it always far more in advance than the FIDS:

The legroom isn't amazing on the first row of the E70, it is much better on the E90:

We took of a few minutes late, some view of Paris:

And then felt asleep until landing!

We leave the aircraft via jetbridge:

But need to take the stairs (a lift is also available) to reach the arrival hall.

This part of the hall has been renovated a few weeks before:

The bad surprise came upon arrival as two of our Samsonite luggages had been badly damaged. They have been reimbursed in full by the airline.

Conclusion

The flight almost did its job. I say almost because of the luggage incident.

The access to the 2G is a bit of a pain as the terminal is very remote and it can take a bit of time to go there.

The EuroAirport is always a pleasure to travel to and from.

The lounge is nice but the food offer is really not was was advertised when it opened.

As usual, a big thank you for reading!
