Prologue:

Welcome to my connection from CDG to LIS. I was glad to take the offer for the upgrade because that gave me the opportunity to visit the new AF Lounge @ 2F and have a more relaxed journey.

Finally I had a chance to visit this famous lounge.

The agent greeted me warmly and welcomed me to step inside.This

Shower rooms on the second floor. I love the convenience of access without the need to talk to a staff member.

Praça do Comércio. Right behind the arc tucked in a corner there is an office where you can buy access to the top with great views of the square.

Summary:

The AF lounge @ 2F staff is great and it is a stunning place to relax before your flight. However it could be challenging to find seats when it's really busy and some people can take more space than allowed. I also noticed some stains and wear on the furniture which is not a good sign. Catering is correct and offered some nice cold items.

The flight an uneventful with a very professional crew that did a great job. The lack of meal choices and serving of cold dishes is somewhat disappointing and gives the feeling of cost cutting. However I have to say that I enjoyed my meal but if I'm a frequent traveler I can see myself getting tired of the same choices.
