Air France lounge at Roissy 2G: not bad at all

The Air France lounge in Roissy’s Terminal 2G is much nicer than expected, and in some respects even nicer than its big brother in the 2F.

Strange as it may seem, we’ve never yet reviewed the Air France lounge at terminal 2G at Roissy. But it’s true that it’s a terminal we don’t frequent very often, and that when I used to go there more regularly, Air France operated another lounge there that was a little more downmarket.

I didn’t expect much from a lounge built in a prefabricated terminal isolated from the rest of the airport, where Air France operates downgraded routes that it must deem unworthy of inclusion in the 2F, which is the case of this flight to Gothenburg that I’m taking as a preamble to a long journey that will take me to Australia.

You’ll find a summary of articles about my vacation in Australia at the bottom of the page.

Location of the lounge

The lounge is located on the first floor of the terminal, on the edge of the large waiting area where passengers wait for their flight gates to be displayed. There are also stores and restaurants.

The lounge is located at one end of this room, opposite the gangway leading to the boarding gates.

Not an optimal location, but that’s no big deal, since we’re not talking about a huge terminal either.

Lounge layout

The lounge is a large room divided into different zones.

There’s plenty of space and the hues are pleasant and warm. Almost Scandinavian, you’d think you were at SAS.

The rear is more dedicated to catering.

On the positive side, the lounge is not blind, and although it was very full during my stay, it was not noisy or unpleasant. On reflection, it even seemed more comfortable and less “zoo” than the 2F lounge.

Catering

The buffet is well stocked.

You’ll find the usual salads, cold cuts and cheese.

Quite basic soup and hot dishes…and poorly restocked.

The quiche will nevertheless prove delicious.

Good-quality pastries are also available.

As for beverages, the offer is also quite comprehensive.

You’ll find the usual softs…

The range of alcoholic beverages is quite comprehensive for a lounge of this type, with wines and spirits on offer.

Facilities

The lounge features a toilet and shower, all to great effect.

Bottom line

Perhaps not the most premium of Air France lounges, nor in the airport’s most prestigious terminal, but a very pleasant place indeed. Despite the crowds, I found it more pleasant than 2F, which is paying the price for its gigantic size.
