La Compagnie was launched with a first Boeing 757-200, then a second in 2015. Configured in two rows of 2 seats, La Compagnie's 100% Business cabin has 74 seats reclining at 175° and featuring a massage function on its two Boeings. To make your flight between Paris and New York as pleasant as possible, the company provides travelers with anti-allergic cushions, a large blanket and a travel kit containing Caudalie brand treatments.
In September 2019, La Compagnie entered into service its second A321neo on a commercial flight between Paris-Orly and Newark-Liberty. Like the first aircraft, the Airbus A321neo is equipped with 76 Business seats that recline into beds, a state-of-the-art entertainment system and free and unlimited Internet connection for the duration of the flight.
While several low-cost airlines offer Paris-New York flights in Eco class and without checked baggage (Level, Norwegian, etc.), there are still few opinions on La Compagnie's 100% Business offer. According to those left by travelers on the dedicated Flight Report website, La Compagnie obtains an average score of 7.3/10, thanks in particular to the professionalism of the on-board staff, the comfort of the cabin, the meals and snacks as well as entertainment on offer.
