It wasn’t long ago that you had to routinely pay around $1000 for a roundtrip flight from the U.S. to Europe in economy. Thankfully, with the exception of peak dates in summer, fares are usually lower now due to increased competition. And now, there’s an incredible business class deal for $1000 roundtrip flights from New York to Paris in lie-flat seats.
Breaking It Down:
La Compagnie is a relatively new airline that launched in mid-2014 with a fleet of all-business class aircraft. They fly exclusively between Newark and Paris, with an additional service to Nice this summer.
The aircraft to snag here is the new Airbus A321neo that the airline has just introduced. That plane has a new cabin with lie-flat seats (the B/E Aerospace seat commonly found on airlines like American’s A321T) with free Wi-Fi onboard. In contrast, the Boeing 757s that La Compagnie also operates only have angle-flat seats.
- Where: New York (EWR) to Paris-Orly (ORY)
- When: August 31 to end of schedule (availability looks pretty open)
- How Much: From $1000 roundtrip (lower if booked through some of the less reputable online travel agencies)
- Why: Some of the cheapest roundtrip fares ever for a lie-flat bed to Europe.
- How To Book: Search on Google Flights, directly on La Compagnie’s website, or just click on this link here.
Best Ways To Pay For This Business Class Deal
La Compagnie does not have a frequent flyer program and is not part of any airline alliance so earning miles is limited to whatever you spend on your credit card. You’ll earn transferable points, and some of the best cards to spend on airfare include the following:
The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card – 2x Ultimate Rewards points on travel
The Platinum Card® from American Express – 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with the airline (but also sometimes works through OTAs)
The Chase Sapphire Reserve® – 3x Ultimate Rewards points on travel
