GREAT DEAL: Roundtrip Business Class From New York To Paris For $1,000

La Compagnie is the all business class transatlantic airline that started flying in mid-2014. They operate flights between Newark and Paris using Boeing 757 aircraft. I reviewed La Compagnie back when they first launched operations a couple of years ago. They also briefly flew between New York and London, though ended up canceling that route.

While La Compagnie doesn’t have the best business class product, I have to give them credit for offering exceptionally good value. They consistently have roundtrip tickets available for ~$1,500, which is cheaper than you’ll regularly find on any other airline.

If you’re thinking of flying La Compagnie, the airline has just announced a fantastic fare sale. La Compagnie is having a “Blue Friday” sale, with tickets available for ~$1,000 roundtrip.

For bookings through November 21, 2016, and travel through March 25, 2017, they’re offering more than 1,000 seats for under $1,000. You can go to La Compagnie’s site directly to purchase seats under this offer. Dates that show one-way pricing of $499 are eligible for the promo, and the ticket should price out at $998 roundtrip.

That’s an incredible deal, and especially worthwhile for those who aren’t otherwise loyal to any one airline. That’s only marginally more than you’d often pay for economy in the market, so at that price it’s tough to go wrong.

Personally I’d only take advantage of this promotion for travel in the next few months, as I have to wonder how much longer La Compagnie will be around, at least in their current form.

Bottom line

$1,000 for roundtrip tickets between New York and Paris is a heck of a deal. La Compagnie’s business class isn’t the best in the world — the seats are angled and the food is fine, though not amazing. However, at these prices you won’t find a similar value with any other airline. So if you’re planning a trip in the next few months from New York to Paris, I’d seriously consider taking advantage of this deal.

  1. I’m yellling Timbeeeerrr, you better move, you better dance!

    100% sure place this on a card that covers bankruptcies. This is a huge red flag. It’s not even a flag anymore! More like red quilt.

  2. its a shame as this certainly seems like a good option, more affordable than business class and a nicer product than economy. being EWR based i’ve thought about it a couple of times but with no miles and it seems to be closer to $2k whenever i want to fly i havent been able to make it work.

    lucky maybe fly them once more to see if theyve worked any of the kinks out?

  3. Ever – they are all angled, something like 165 degrees. Personally I found it much more comfortable to use the seat as a Lay-Z-Boy recliner (so, partially reclined) than as a bed (the full 165 degrees).

    alex – Check flightaware.com for the history of on time performance and cancellations. When I did that prior to a recent trip, I found that they were doing OK compared to their initial fiasco.

    Was curious about the Amer Biz Plat comment. I have both Biz and Personal. With personal you get 5x points, I think. What is the advantage of Biz Plat? Just curious, and interested to know :).

    Thanks!

    That is what I was thinking. The 50% point redemption value is great with the Biz Platinum but that wouldn’t apply here since this promo is only at La Compagnie’s website, right?

    You do, but I think it has to be an airline on their list, for lack of a better term. It might be worth a call to the Amx Travel line to find out if they are.
