I’ve been away from the computer for a while, but it looks the rest of the PWaC team has kept you guys busy! I had the fortune to be traveling through Europe a bit, and had plenty of stops to check out some lounges! My routing brought me from Boston, through Amsterdam, to Dresden on the way there, and then Prague to Brussels, back to Munich (thanks United mechanical failure), home to Boston. I arrived at Boston Logan International Airport Friday night after work, ready for a 9PM overnight flight to Amsterdam out of Terminal E. Dan last checked out the Air France Lounge back in 2015. Want to know what I thought of the lounge this time around? Keep reading for my Boston Airport Air France Lounge Review!
Boston Air France Lounge Access
I always have my Priority Pass card with me when traveling! At Boston, you’ve got a few lounge options with the Priority Pass card in your wallet. I’ve been lucky enough to check out the Jerry Remy’s in Terminal C, the Stephanie’s at Boston Airport, and now the Air France lounge in Terminal E. All of these visits have been covered by my Priority Pass cards, and you’ll also get access to The Club in Terminal E and The Lounge in Boston’s Terminal C.
The Air France lounge is located near Gate 4 in Terminal E. You’ll need to take the stairs or take the elevator to the lower level, and then follow the (slightly creepy/empty) hallway down to the end.
Boston Air France Lounge Seating and First Thoughts
Overall the lounge was great, in my opinion! I was really surprised to find it fairly empty on a Friday night. Considering the number of trans-Atlantic flights on the evenings out of Boston that leave from Terminal E, AND the fact that it was April vacation in the northeast, AND it was leading up to Easter, the lounge was almost empty. I’d say there were maybe 30 people in the Air France Lounge in Boston, and it didn’t feel crowded at all.
My only complaint as far as the design of the lounge goes…the bathrooms. Not inside, no. Totally functional toilets, and clean, that’s all you can ask for! The location is a bit off-putting though. Where most lounges and restaurants have their bathrooms located down a hallway from the main areas, the Air France Lounge opted to put the doors to the bathrooms right in front of the seating area. Now I know there are space constraints when building lounges in crowded terminals, but it renders the seats closest to the bathroom doors awkward at best, and unusable at worst.
Boston Air France Lounge Food and Beverage Selection
The food at the Boston Air France Lounge was great! They offer a good selection of hot and cold options. We got to sample some sandwiches, ziti and meatballs, and scalloped potatoes. Everything was excellent, and I definitely went up for a second helping..
The brownies and deserts were awesome, and there’s plenty of healthy options too. Just around the corner from the food selection, the Boston Air France Lounge keeps a nice open bar stocked. You’ll find the standard liquor, beer, and wine options, as well as a selection of charcuterie.
Boston Air France Lounge Review
The Air France Lounge in Terminal E is an awesome spot to relax before your international flight out of Boston Logan. This lounge has some of the best food I’ve head at a Priority Pass lounge recently, and there’s plenty of seating available. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Boston!
