I’m hesitant to La Compagnie because I don’t want too many people to know how fabulous this airline is. It is owned by Iceland Air and only flies to Paris (when you get there you can get a connecting flight to another part of Europe on a different airline if Paris is not your final destination). What makes it so...

First and definitely not the last time flying on La Compagnie. Service at both the airport counters and on-board were stellar. The quality of the in-flight meals were over-the-top. The movie selection could've been more extensive but that's a very small quibble. Finally, an airline that caters exclusively to those who desire NOT to be herded like cattle, nickled &...

We thought we’d give La Compagnie a shot despite reading reviews by others that warned of delays and cancellations. On our way to Paris on 6/28/18, we were seated in the back of the plane (row 20) and the smell emanating from the lavatories behind us was almost unbearable and didn’t dissipate until we were airborne. Service was ok, but...

This is our second time flying with this airline. We do enjoyed a fantastic price and the convenience of the business class travel but the airline lacks any sort of communication. Our flight is delayed indefinitely do too “ mechanical “ issues and nobody is stepping forward to give us advice as to what to expect. Very disappointed that were...

some three months ago I reserved our return tickets Paris-NY-Paris with this airline. At the airport, after some delays, we were cleared through a couple of extensive luggage and body checks by the security officers, Then we were loaded onto a shuttle bus and waited (under the scorching sun) again for the scheduled flight to NY. After some 30 minutes...

Bottom line: really can't beat the experience for the price. Would definitely choose again. Details: family of 5 with kids 12, 10, 8. Flights to and fro were on time, flew in early June. Airports: EWR was out of terminal B which is terrible - small, very few shops. Lounge is before security which is a hassle. It's shared with...

Great service, convenient flights. Did I mention - at 1/4th of the price of larger airlines? Yes the seats are shells and recline about 160 instead of flat but - plenty of space, great food, and compared to business class in most commercial airlines - same if not better. Flew with La Compagnie to London before and now to Paris...

Over the past few years I have taken advantage of cost effective business class flights to Paris on this airline. The service has gradually improved - now you can even get calvados whereas in the early days only bourbon - but the price has also increased 50%. Still a lot better that standard business class airfare but you are paying...

We were excited to travel with La Compagnie for the first time. It was ok and acceptable for the cost but there were a few "first world problems" that I think people should know. The food was fantastic and very delicious for airplane food. I ate every last bit of all 4 courses presented. Being a French company, there was...

$1,600 round trip business from NY to Paris. Too good to be true? I am afraid so. Not a flat bed. 160 degrees. You slide off. Old planes. No choice in food. Dirty seats. Broken arm rests. However miles better than economy or premium economy on any other airline. Buy new planes instead of badly rehashing old ones .
