French all business class airline La Compagnie has just launched a potentially lucrative companion fare sale for travel over the coming months. While La Compagnie doesn’t have any loyalty program partners, this is ideal for anyone looking to travel nonstop between the New York area and Europe.
La Compagnie’s transatlantic companion fare sale
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, La Compagnie is offering a companion fare sale. Pricing is as follows:
- Fly Newark (EWR) to Milan (MXP) for $1,400 round trip per person ($2,800 per pair)
- Fly Newark (EWR) to Paris (ORY) for $1,500 round trip per person ($3,000 per pair)
- Fly Newark (EWR) to Nice (NCE) for $1,500 round trip per person ($3,000 per pair)
This promotion is valid for bookings through February 14, 2022, and pricing includes all taxes, fees, and surcharges. However, there is limited availability, and you can easily see all availability with this calendar function by route.
This won’t be for everyone, but I do think this could make sense for some. For example, many people from New York love to go to the South of France in summer, so being able to fly nonstop for $1,500 per person in business class is unbeatable. Delta and United also fly nonstop to Nice, and economy fares start at about $1,200 per person in the peak of summer.
While these tickets are non-refundable, changes are allowed for free. However, fare differences can apply, and those could be significant.
The La Compagnie A321neo business class experience
La Compagnie currently operates a fleet of two Airbus A321neo aircraft, each featuring 76 seats in an all business class configuration. I’ve reviewed the La Compagnie experience, and was impressed.
While La Compagnie’s business class seats as such aren’t cutting edge, there is something nice about traveling on a jet with fewer people, and for that matter the cabin also looks really cool.
The value here is simply incredible, especially when you consider that the airline offers complimentary high speed Wi-Fi (and it’s actually high speed, similar to JetBlue). The food, drinks, and service are all quite good as well, though nothing that’ll blow you away. It’s all about the overall value, plus the convenience of traveling nonstop on a smaller jet.
I’d book La Compagnie again in a heartbeat if I had any firm travel plans that coincided with this sale.
All business class airline La Compagnie has a great companion fare sale, offering fares as low as $1,400 per person. If you’re looking to cross the Atlantic, are based in the New York area, and want to travel in comfort, this is a pretty awesome promotion.
Personally I think the Newark to Nice pricing is most lucrative, given how much competitors are charging in that market for economy.
Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this La Compagnie fare sale?
