The Air France Lounge at Boston Logan airport is located in Terminal E, above gate E3, at the end of a service hallway.
The club welcomes Air France and KLM premium passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus customers, premium passengers of Alitalia, El Al, Hainan Airlines, Icelandair, as well as members of popular lounge access programs Priority Pass and Diners Club.
Conveniently located near the Air France boarding gate, the Air France Lounge is also a relatively 10-minute walk from Terminal C through the airside connector. Passengers departing from Terminals A and B are welcome to use the lounge, however they’ll need to exit and then re-clear security in order to reach their terminal.
Air France Lounge BOS design
The Air France Lounge at Boston Logan airport is one of the carrier’s larger clubs in North America. The expansive space sports the airline’s legacy décor with beige tones, touches of red, lamps that double as privacy dividers, and vintage posters celebrating the airline’s history and network.
Unfortunately, the space has lost much of its luster and has the dubious charm of an office space from the 80s. The stained carpet, worn furniture, neon lighting, and often inoperative lamps reflect years of neglect and under-investment. It doesn’t help that the club receives virtually no daylight: the only window in the buffet area reveals merely a glimpse of the tarmac.
The lounge is divided into multiple rooms, which further limits light flow without significantly improving privacy.
The seating layout is mostly uninspired, with rows of chairs with side tables facing each other. Most seats cater to solo travelers, though families and groups will find more casual seating near the buffet area. In the dining area—the most welcoming room overall—there are booths, and tables for two and four.
As expected from an older lounges, power outlets are sorely missing. To charge up devices, head over to the rear of the lounge where counter-style seating with outlets runs along the wall, or use one of the shared charging stations with individual trays and adapters—a relic of the days before USB became ubiquitous.
Air France Lounge BOS amenities
The Air France Lounge at Boston Logan airport features a set of essential amenities, which seems to be more aimed at domestic travelers than at international premium passengers.
The buffet spread includes snacks, crudités, mini-sandwiches, Cup Noodles, cheese (along with French baguette, naturally), and fruit. The ensemble is hardly gourmet, but suffices for a substantial snack. Unfortunately, Air France stops short of offering hot meals, which would be a welcome amenity ahead of a short overnight hop to Europe, in order to maximize sleep on board.
Some food choices are odd—when we visited, Air France offered breakfast pastries after noon, and the hot option was churros—a far cry from French gastronomy.
The drink selection is all self-serve and includes an assortment of middle-shelf liquor such as Bacardi run, Smirnoff vodka, and Bombay Sapphire gin; red and white Bordeaux wines, and Prosecco. As far as Priority Pass lounges are concerned, that’s a substantial selection, but for a premium international business class lounge, it’s unremarkable—Prosecco, especially, is unlikely to please the palate of French clientele. Juices, soda, and water bottles are available in a cooler.
Men and female bathrooms are located near the lobby area; the facilities have seen better days and Air France does not offer showers.
Other amenities include a selection of French and local newspapers and magazines, as well as a dedicated Wi-Fi access point.
Air France Lounge BOS bottom line
The Air France Lounge at Boston Logon airport Terminal E delivers on a few key basics such as comfortable seating, an enjoyable snack and beverage selection, and Wi-Fi. The club meets most expectations as far as contract lounges are concerned, but disappoints as an international business class lounge.
Air France isn’t investing in their product. The mostly windowless space is in need of a refurbishment, and the abundant real estate is underused—the airline could have used the expansive space to build more secluded seating, private resting areas, and showers.
Overall, Air France delivers the weakest ground experience at Boston airport compared to its direct competitors Lufthansa, British Airways, and Virgin Atlantic, whose lounges boast pristine and elegantly appointed spaces, a generous hot buffet or a-la-carte options, and a staffed bar. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much par for the course for Air France’s North American clubs, which are typically glorified contract lounges rather than world-class facilities.
