Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
There aren't too many flyers who can say they've flown an all-business class plane, especially after the end of SAS' all-business 737 flight to Norway. Enter all-business class airline La Compagnie, now running a promotion on travel to London from New York starting at $1,100 per person round-trip if you book for two, or $1,300 for individual tickets.
The lowest prices are available on the airline's service between Newark (EWR) and London-Luton (LTN), but there are also some decent fares to Paris in the mix. You won't be able to credit miles or points to any alliance partners like Delta or United, however, the airline launched its own program in 2015. These promotional fares are available to book until February 29, and low prices are available through the end of the 2016 schedule.
If you're wondering what a flight in La Compagnie's business class looks like, The Points Guy flew and reviewed the product last May and found it to be a solid option for crossing the Atlantic.
