After a pax bus transfer, I arrived at terminal 2F:

new air france lounge terminal 2g


The new lounge is absolutely wonderful, however, since its opening, it can really get crowded.
The staircase is wonderful:

There a a few food stations:

This place is called "The Comptoir" but is closed that Sunday afternoon:

My lunch:

The hot dish with beef with sweet pepper and was pretty nice.

It was a great time, one of the highlight of the lounge.
The second one is the beautiful view:

The purser greeted everyone with a smile behind the mask, I took my seat, and had someone seating next to me :(

Take off:

I only took water, the purser gave me a weird look as all other passengers were taking champagne. She told me "Are you really sure about it? No bubbles today?"

The "catering" is 100% the same as on the DUS CDG Flight …

Almost arrived:

Back home:

No jetway today:

But a short walk to the terminal:


photo img_2869_resultatphoto img_2870_resultatphoto img_2871_resultat

Non stop here:

Since the flight is considered as "domestic" there are no controls.

10 minutes after landing I am in my car back home! A good performance.

Conclusion

The flight does it job but come on, this is a business class flight... How can one call this business? At least the purser gave us a first class service.

Both airport did their job and the new AF lounge is really great.

As usual, a big thank you for reading this series, a new one to follow shortly!

    Exactly...it's sad really. I guess the fantastic new lounge helps to elevate the experience, and luckily you had a good cabin crew. But of course, you don't always have time to go to the lounge--so the onboard product itself really needs to be improved. I've flown IB Regional/Air Nostrum several times where the adjacent seat isn't blocked, but the catering is fantastic each and every time on flights that are very short like this. There's no excuse for the airline of the world capital of gastronomy to serve a tiny snack in Business.

    I only took water, the purser gave me a weird look as all other passengers were taking champagne. She told me "Are you really sure about it? No bubbles today?"

    Haha yeah since it's basically the only thing that differentiates the experience as Business class

    Thanks for sharing!
