What’s better than a great Black Friday or Cyber Monday discount? A sale before the sale. The all-business-class French airline La Compagnie is offering travelers a pre-Black Friday promotion with flights from Newark (EWR) to Paris (ORY) from $1,187 round-trip. Note: flights must be booked between Nov. 16 and Nov. 20 to qualify for the deal.

TPG reviewed La Compagnie’s business-class flight to Paris from Newark back in 2015. The flight itself, while maybe not quite as luxurious as other business class flights running the same routes, still is a solid option for booking a comfortable trip for a fairly reasonable price.
