Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
The all-business-class French carrier La Compagnie is currently running a "Family Trip" sale with fares from Newark (EWR) to Paris (CDG) from $1,295 round-trip for adults and $997 round-trip for children age 2-11. The sale is valid for summer travel, and we're seeing availability through mid-August. This is a pretty great deal, as it's for travel during the peak summer travel months and in business class.
Availability is wide open for most of the summer. TPG flew the carrier a couple of years ago and had a good experience, though it's important to note that these seats are angle-flat rather than full lie-flat.
