Amazing Deal Alert: Newark to Paris in La Compagnie’s New Business Class From $1,000 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). 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.
Here's an incredible chance to fly to Paris in style. French airline La Compagnie is offering amazing business class fares between Newark (EWR) and Paris (ORY) for just $1,000 round-trip. What makes this even better is that low fares are available on nearly every date from September 2019 through April 2020.
These are promotional fares that come with some restrictions — La Compagnie says the fare is not refundable and carriers a $500 penalty fee per changed flight.
Because these fares are so low, it can even make sense to use points if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve and book through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal. You'd only need 66,667 points to cover the cost of the $1,000 round-trip ticket.
To search for these fares, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline, through an OTA like Priceline, Expedia or plug those dates into the Ultimate Rewards travel portal and book there.
