Great La Compagnie Business Class Sale

Filed Under: Great Deals, La Compagnie

La Compagnie is the all business class transatlantic airline that started flying in mid-2014. The airline operates flights between Newark and Paris Orly, and this past summer also operated seasonal flights between Newark and Nice (I guess the route was a success, because it’s already on sale for next summer).

I reviewed La Compagnie’s 757 business class back when they first launched operations several years ago.

La Compagnie Business Class Fare Sale

At the moment La Compagnie has a fare sale that’s specifically for one-way travel, rather than roundtrip, which is quite rare. So, how good are the fares?

  • You can fly one-way from Newark to Paris for $800
  • You can fly one-way from Paris to Newark for 600EUR (~$670)

That price for travel from Paris to Newark is especially good.

This fare sale is valid for bookings through October 20, 2019, and for travel through December 20, 2019.

You can find these fares either directly on La Compagnie’s website, or you can use ITA Matrix or Google Flights to pull up these fares.

What makes this deal especially compelling is that La Compagnie now has two A321neos featuring fully flat business class seats, unlike the previous angled seats found on the 757s.

La Compagnie’s New Business Class

What makes this especially interesting is that La Compagnie this summer introduced a new business class product.

Up until recently La Compagnie has operated two Boeing 757-200s featuring angled seats. While that’s not the best business class product, it did represent an excellent value, as they have lower business class fares than any other airline in the market.

However, over the summer La Compagnie began service with an A321neo, and they also recently added a second A321neo to their fleet. This plane features free high speed wifi and fully flat beds in business class.

Pair This With A Flying Blue Promo Award

In addition to this great La Compagnie sale, keep in mind that through October 20, 2019, Flying Blue is offering special Promo Awards for travel between the US and Europe.

For example, you could redeem just 32,000-36,000 Flying Blue miles for a one-way tickets from Toronto or Seattle to Europe.

Personally my plan is to fly Air France’s A350 from Toronto to Paris for 32,000 Flying Blue miles, and then on the return book a ~$660 ticket on La Compagnie from Paris to Newark.

Bottom Line

These are some incredible business class fares on La Compagnie, especially if you’re just looking at booking a one-way ticket. You can always redeem miles in one direction, and then pay cash in the other, which could represent an excellent deal.

Anyone plan to take advantage of one of these great La Compagnie fares?

Comments
  1. Airline is a joke. Consistent cancellations and they only have 3 planes. Stay away unless your travel plans are very flexible.

  2. Just flew with La Compagnie EWR-NCE on a very old 757 but knew that in advance flight was fine passed on dinner meal to sleep. Breakfast was fine nothing special but also paid a very cheap promo ticket. They contacted in advance that my return trip was cancelled, text & email then they called me with my options. They booked me in AF to ORY. ORY – EWR was on the new A321neo very nice clean super attentive crew! I didn’t have much luck with high speed WiFi but didn’t make a big deal over I prefer to relax when I fly. Would I fly La Compagnie guess not…not convenient since I live in VA and fly out of RIC. I would recommend them if you book on the A321

  3. Lucky you mentioned it towards the end. This fare plus the FlyingBlue promo are great. Take advantage of them and delight us with the reviews (YYC-EWR via Paris) 😉

  4. Yay, $1600 to not go anywhere because your flight is cancelled at the last minute. What a disastrous airline.

  5. After reading the nightmare story about La Compagnie on TPG, I’d be very wary. It’s one thing to book a cheap fare on a normal/large carrier that has capacity to handle logistics around IRROPS but with a tiny airline I think you get what you pay for

  6. REVIEW PLEASE!!!!!

    We have been waiting for the A321neo review of this airlines since the dawn of time! (OK, jk; still, please review!)

  7. Boy, this looks great! So good that I spent $1500 for a one way business class ticket on LC flight 0102 from Paris to New York back in June.

    The problem was that their plane broke, they swapped it out the plane for a sub-economy charter (“wet lease”) without saying anything until I was on the plane, and then would not let me off.

    I emailed, called, and directly asked their gate agent in NY……. all of which were ignored. Other blogs also talk about how LC does not respond to customer calls. After a month I filed a formal complaint (here, in case you need it: https://airconsumer.dot.gov/escomplaint/consumerform.cfm) and shared the story on some blogs. Only then did the email me back.

    They claimed that they sent me an email ahead of the flight, but the address was wrong. However, they could not explain why they used my correct email address three times to send me my booking, receipt, and boarding pass, or why they did not say anything at check-in or the gate.

    They finally offered to refund 75% of the fare (EU law requires this), but I sent all the documentation to AmEx and got a full refund from them instead.

    Bottom line: If you buy a ticket on this airline and actually get what they promise, consider yourself lucky. If not, be ready for a horrible flight and a long battle to get your money back!

  8. We flew RT on LaCompagnie this month on the lovely new Airbus. Flight to Paris was great–excellent food, very solicitous service, comfortable lie-flat seats, pillows and blanket, nice amenities kit offered. The return, also on the Airbus, was less so. Disorganized and neglectful service, no tissues in the lavatories, the meal was only so-so. There are no alternatives to the entree offered (I’m allergic to shellfish and the response was ‘oh’ and nothing offered as an alternative to crab).
    I’m not certain what to make of the difference in service and attitude and overlooking something important like tissues in the lavatories except it must be the crews on any given day.
    Their shared lounge in Newark is peculiar; a once-upscale lounge desperately in need of new carpeting and upholstery. The furniture seats are literally shredded. Food offerings are simple, ample and tasty but it looks so down at heel. I did appreciate Orly over CDG, so much quieter and easier to get around.
    Not certain if we’d fly LaCompagnie again.

  9. La Compagnie
    My wife & I flew the new A321neo to & from ORY during Oct. We were on-time on each leg and easily made connections on both ends.
    The aircraft is quiet, the service is fine and the 2×2 seats are comfortable and go fully flat. Be aware the footwell is very small when fully flat. But we each slept well.
    The food is fine, but certainly not extravagant. The WiFi worked very well- a huge plus.
    2×2 seating is no comparison to mainline carriers.
    Bottom line for us- this aircraft and its all business class configuration are a tremendous value at $1,250 per person RT compared to mainline carriers.
