Continuation of my trip to Bordeaux to show you now the Air France european product after the LH one in my previous serie.



I will be focusing this time on the Air France lounge in the terminal 2F.

Located just after security between the 2 concourses.

Heading directly to the buffet and the warm offer is proposed by the chef François Adamski.

Well I am sorry chef but I will never put a foot in one of your restaurant. That was just disgusting !!! You should stop this partnership asap.

The champagne is still present. Could be colder but it's a nice touch.

Overall I was not impressed. Air France used to do better. Especially in its flagship Schengen lounge.
I've heard that the offer is always up and down. I surely hit a down this time.

My kids found anyway something to eat… :)

As our flight was delayed and one of the last to depart I could take views of the lounge mostly empty. Enjoy!

Now it was finally time to board.

It was already started when we arrive. Sky Priority and Economy lanes remain even after priority boarding so you don't have to wait.

The famous door shot.

The cabin of this A321 is a domestic version with 212 seats. The seats cannot be reclined but personally prefer as it doesn't disturb the passenger seating behind you.

USB sockets are available and active at boarding.

The crew was extremely nice, welcoming and cheerful. 


photo img_0925photo img_0926

The service was limited to drinks and a cookie/crackers. Fully sufficient on that flight.

We were in Bordeaux in no time. We parked next to the KLM flight for this overnight stop and luggage arrived shortly. BOD is not a nice airport, but at least you do not wait forever for your luggage. There were many delayed bags, most of them with a LH tag on it. At least there were not lost, at least not yet as I found weird to keep all luggages like this available to anyone to take one home. Poor service quality of the provider if you ask me.

Conclusion

Very good flight on Air France. Not good that 40min delay but I can understand it. The Air France lounge in 2F is a mystery though. There is clearly lack of space as it is very often extremely crowded. There is no space to work properly and the food was not good today. Definitely not on french standards.

    the warm offer is proposed by the chef François Adamski.

    To be honest, I never thought that "rice" and "apple" could go together in the same sentence. However, googling "arroz y manzana" brought up lots of recipes! I might give them a try. (Ew...)

    Sky Priority and Economy lanes remain even after priority boarding so you don't have to wait.

    That awkward millisecond when you think you've seen a UFO in the evening sky, only to discover that it's a lamp reflected on the window glass panel. lol

    The cabin of this A321 is a domestic version with 212 seats.

    This cabin looks very LCC!

    Thanks for sharing this report. It feels more like a warning, though. haha Air France could give a bit more love to the French, I think.

    Have a nice weekend!
