Paris, no Presidents Club for Continental!

I have just realized that there is no Presidents Club in Paris for Continental Business Class or club members. Has anybody used another airlines club while there.

Delta uses the Air France club and I think CO does too. Be sure to get the pass when you check in.

A BusinessFirst passenger definitely have a lounge to use, and it should be a Air France lounge. However, continental.com doesn't list a PC location, so if you're a PC member flying coach on CO, you may not be able to use a lounge.

I have used this lounge many times. CO BusinessFirst passengers are given access to the AirFrance club - CO has a concierge posted there. If you are top tier elite (SkyTeam Elite Plus) that will get you access also. P Club membership alone does not get you in.

Thank you. Hubby is a Presidents Club member and also flying Business. Glad to know we can use Air France. I will go on their website to locate their clubat CDG. Thanks again.

CO uses CDG 2A. The AF lounge for departure use is at the east end of 2A - i.e. far left after you clear security. For arrivals lounge use, ask the Continental BF concierge (in grey coats) at IAH or EWR before departure. Or look for the concierge immediately after arrivals.

If you are flying BusinessFirst, when you check in the agent will give you a pass for admission and a set of directions to the lounge operated by AF. As noted, it is to the left as you enter through the security checkpoint, and it takes a few minutes to get from there to the CO gates, includig a hike up and down some stairs and through the mezzanine restaurant. As for arrivals, there is no CO or AF arrival lounge in that terminal, but in the past the CO BusinessFirst concierge provided us access to an arrival lounge with nice showers that is operated by another airline.
