This afternoon (Central European time) I’m in an Air France Lounge in the Charles de Gaulle airport of Paris, on a longish layover during a trip home to see my family. If there’s anything that I’ve learned about flying through Paris it is: 1) get a long layover, so that there is a higher chance that the bags will actually be transferred to the next flight; and 2) use the Air France lounge, which is comfortable and pleasant and quiet and a much better place to be during the long layover, than wandering around in the noisy terminal. Fortunately, I have Gold Status with Delta, so I can get into the lounge for free – this year.
Please say a prayer that the second leg of my trip goes as well as the first one did, and for my family as they drive to Boston to pick me up this evening. Thanks!
