Qatar First & Business Lounge at CDG

Just after 12:30pm, I headed down the hall to the Qatar Lounge, which was just opening.   Pleasant QR rep indicated that while they were unable to issue boarding passes, they could check me in, and my boarding pass would be waiting for me at the gate.  And that my e-ticket confirmation was all that I needed to get thru security and to the gate.  Not as clean as I would have liked, but it sure beats the alternative.  The Qatar Lounge is only about 6 months old and is quite lovely, reminiscent of the LHR lounge. And with the same wonderful service.

I freshened up with a shower before we headed to lunch. 

A glass of Billecart Salmon to start our lunch, and an meze amuse bouche.

My cream of asparagus soup.

And the delicious lamb birhyani.

Our fabulous server Vasanthi who insisted that we try a glass of the Chateau Peymouton St-Emilion Grand Cru.   Just like in a government subsized Delta Club. LOL.
