Etihad First & Business Lounge, Paris CDG, Terminal 2A

Etihad First & Business Class Lounge, Paris CDG, Terminal 2C

Impression

In February 2013, Etihad opened its combined First and Business Lounge at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle, which cost nearly £5 million to build. It is an impressive lounge, both in size and design, with a total of 620 square metres and consisting of several designated areas. The design is consistently elegant and colours are subtle with white and dark brown wood. The lounge offers an à la carte restaurant, relaxation area, business centre, family room, prayer room, toilets and shower facilities.

Towards the rear of the lounge there is what can best be described as a luxurious lounge with large recliners and armchairs, as well as reading material and several TVs.

The interior is adorned with vases by the French glassblower Jean-Claude Navaro, 3D art by Jean-Francois Larrieu, and Arabian art by the Iraqi calligrapher, Hassan Massoudy.

Eating and Drinking

In the middle of the lounge there is an à la carte restaurant. It offers breakfast dishes prior to morning departures, and appetisers, main courses, cheese platters and desserts before evening departures. Moreover, there is a also self service buffet available with simple cold dishes. All food on the menu is prepared in the fully equipped kitchen to order.

Beside the restaurant there is also a staffed bar serving drinks, including Champagne and several French wines. There is also a self-service coffee machine in the lounge. Otherwise, there are staff on duty to serve take orders.

Facilities

The lounge offers free WiFi as well as a business centre with printers. The lounge also has various seating areas, a prayer room, toilets and showers.

Summary

A very impressive lounge with a neat and elegant design, good service and a superb selection of food and drink, especially considering Paris is not a hub for Etihad. Recommended!
