This was my first time flying out of CDG Terminal 2E and unfortunately found out very quickly that you can’t go from Hall to Hall after security. This wasn’t that big of a deal as I was on the. last. minute. but, I apologize in advance if this review is a bit shorter than what you may be used to on the site.  I spent all of about 15 minutes in it purely to snap photos, get a new seat assignment, and quickly use the WiFi.

The Deets:

  • When: January 2019
  • Where: Paris, CDG, Terminal 2E, Hall K
  • Access: Business/First Ticket, SkyTeam Elite Plus

Where is it?

After you clear security, turn left, and proceed towards the picture below. The lounge is downstairs.

There are two sides to the lounge.

You’ll check in and then have the option: Go right or left. I went right first purely because the left entrance was blocked because check-in was so busy. As you can see in the picture below the lounge as very crowded.

Hopping over to the other side you’ll see a two story lounge with ample seating

Another buffet selection as well

All the rage is the new Air France lounge in 2E, Hall L and from the pics I’ve seen online it’s much nicer than this lounge…which is nothing to scoff at. It feels relatively new, clean, the Wifi was quick, food selection was decent, and the staff was friendly. However, I spent roughly 15 minutes in the lounge, so I wasn’t able to really eat the food, I had a bottle of water, and would be perfectly happy spending a couple of hours here. Is it worth going out of your way to see/experience like I did? No.

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.
