La Compagnie Air Flight to Paris

Has anyone flown to Paris (or London) on La Compagnie? They are a Business Class only, fairly new airline offering very good prices from NY-Newark to London or Paris.
I'd like to hear from anyone who has used them, and what your experience was like.
Many thanks for any insight !

Has anyone heard of this company? My friends have booked seats for October and all went well with their booking, but I'd like to know others' experiences before booking myself. Anyone?

Google it.

There are some disturbing stories (especially at http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.c...-a340-sort-of/), and some fulsome recommendations.

It's not clear whether its problems come from its just not having the infrastructure to deal with real one-off irritations, or whether it's fundamentally flawed by expanding to Luton without the resources to do so.

Hard googling will tell you more than waiting for one or two anecdotes.

Thanks, Flanner. You may be correct in your suggestion. The link you sent me seems flawed, but I will try to locate it otherwise.

oh, sure, I've heard of them but never used them. I would never spend that kind of money on plane fare, anyway, so it wasn't anything I could ever try. It is a little cheaper than major carrier's business class, but it's still very expensive compared to economy or economy plus.

We have friends who live in Paris and they have flown on them. They have had good experiences.

Thanks, all. I have been reading reviews just now, thanks to Flanneruk, and am not sure whether I will book or not. More research for now.

The mixed reviews have stalled my research for a couple of days. Maybe back to it today.

WEll, I decided NOT to go with La Compagnie, instead we booked on Air France, premium voyageur. Our dates are fixed, so I din't want to chance any delays. I am a hyper enough traveler as it is!

I hope they do get out on the kinks in their service. We used the BA Open Skies a couple of times, and it worked very well!
