FARE ALERT: Business Class Roundtrip New York – France for $1298

All (angled) business class airline La Compagnie announced its acquisition by XL Airways in December.

The carrier discounts New York – Paris as a business strategy, and right now they’ve got a super low sale running throughout summer for $1298 roundtrip.

Availability at this price is good avoiding peak of peak days.

The base fare we’ve seen before many times, usually with fuel surcharges $100 more. The lower surcharge brings the price under $1300.

Key details:

  • 60 day advance purchase required
  • Saturday stay required
  • Non-refundable with $500 change fee
  • Certain peak travel dates won’t have availability for the VNYRTUS fare
