I stopped by the Air France Lounge during my last connection in Houston. While not a bad place for a quick snack, the Priority Pass lounge felt a bit like a dungeon.
The lounge is located in the far corner of Terminal D, near gate D12, and is open from 12:00PM – 5:00PM daily.
Although the flight to Paris was not for several hours and the nicer KLM Lounge was nearby, the lounge was surprisingly crowded. For that reason, my pictures of the seating area below are limited so as not to invade the privacy of other guests.
The lounge is Air France’s old style, nearly identical to the Frankfurt lounge, but nothing like the remodeled lounges in Paris or at outstations like Washington Dulles or New York.
In the back is a roped off area for La Premiere members, hardly like the La Premiere Lounge in Paris.
While I didn’t try any, the food selection was decent, with cheeses, fruit, salads, sandwiches, soup, chips, and cookies. Not very French, but pretty nice for a snack or light meal. Drinks included a self-serve bar with wine and spirits plus a refrigerator with water, beer, and soft drinks. There’s also a coffee machine.
The lounge not only has no showers, but not even a bathroom.
Internet worked atrociously. I had planned to work there for a bit, but left after a few minutes due to non-functioning wi-fi.
This is a very “meh” lounge. I’d say the strongest amenity is the food and drinks, but this is not a lounge I plan to return to.
