A year ago, La Compagnie revealed that it would be ordering a pair of Airbus A321neo aircraft to shuttle passengers between Paris (ORY) and Newark (EWR) in comfort. Now, the all-business-class airline is shedding more light on how those planes will be outfitted. With operations scheduled to begin in April 2019, the carrier is detailing what to expect if you choose its product over mileage-earning competitors.
La Compagnie seems quite proud that it’ll become the first French airline to operate the A321neo. Inside, you’ll find 76 lie-flat B/E Aerospace Diamond seats in a 2-2 configuration. On the entertainment front, Zodiac Inflight Innovations will supply a Rave system with a 15.7” touchscreen. Noise-cancelling headsets are also included, though the airline stopped short of calling out a brand or model.
We’ve also learned that unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi will be included courtesy of Viasat. In fact, La Compagnie asserts that the in-flight internet experience will “rival connectivity standards on the ground.”
Pricing and scheduling details have not yet been announced.
