Is there anything better than jetting off to Paris, Nice, or Milan? Yes, yes there is. Jetting off to Paris, Nice, or Milan in business class. For a limited time (and just in time for gift-giving season, cough cough), French airline La Compagnie is offering airfares as low as $2,000 round-trip for its all-business flights to those three cities in France and Italy.

The “Blue Friday” sale (a nod to the baby-blue aircraft La Compagnie flies) kicks off on Friday, November 17, and runs through Tuesday, November 21, 2023. And the travel period stretches into next spring: The deal is available on select flights between December 1, 2023, and May 31, 2024, with no specific holiday periods blacked out and subject to availability.

Launched in 2014, the boutique airline La Compagnie offers all-business-class flights between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Paris Orly Airport, EWR to Milan Malpensa Airport, and seasonal service between EWR and Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport.

The flights take place on single-aisle Airbus A321neos outfitted with 76 lie-flat business-class seats. La Compagnie airfares include two checked bags per passenger, and the airline offers its passengers access to airport lounges preflight.

Onboard, seats are configured in two rows of two with partitions between the adjoining seats. They feature large seatback screens (stocked with French and American movies), and passengers are offered a pillow, light comforter, over-the-ear headphones, and an amenity bag complete with socks, an eye mask, and Caudalie toiletries. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi onboard.

Meals served inflight are chosen from menus executed by French and Italian chefs and are paired with a selection of wines and champagnes, bien sûr.

We reviewed the La Compagnie flying experience in 2021 from start to finish for those who want to know more about what this unique model entails.

One big caveat of the promotion, however, is that the tickets are nonrefundable.
