A showcase Business Class lounge in Terminal 2E at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport for Air France passengers has revealed its final look after being reopened partially earlier this year.
The lounge now features more than 3,200sq m of space and can seat 540 passengers. Guests find their way around via an interactive plan at the entrance.
Customer executive vice-president Anne Rigail said: "The lounge is in line with Air France's strategy to move upmarket, in the same way as the lounge at Terminal 2G, designed to surprise customers with innovative services in well-being and gastronomy."
The facility has themed zones including Le Balcon, a bar featuring a cocktail menu created by the Hotel Lancaster in Paris, plus the largest wellness area of any Air France lounge.
The Gourmet Table dining section features an open kitchen where a chef prepares hot dishes in front of passengers. A self-service buffet offers a selection of casseroles, salads and pastries.
In addition to a relaxation area with sun loungers and mini suites, there is also a detox bar, a Clarins spa offering facial treatments, two private saunas and luxury showers, plus an area for young passengers.

Lovely but the lounge is open to which class(es) of pax? AF has given me a lifetime platinum card, or sth like that, but since my bane(s) these days is/are airports and rail stations. Heathrow and CDG at the top of the list.
