La Compagnie is a unique airline, as they are the only true all business class airline flying between the US and Europe. While British Airways does operate one all business class flight to London City, I don’t think they count to the same degree.

What is The Business Class Product Like?

La Compagnie just took delivery of its brand new A321neo which is flying this route. The plane has 76 flat beds, the B/E Aerospace Diamond seats which are set up in a 2-2 configuration.

The seat may feel a bit cramped in recline as your feet do go into a fairly narrow footwell.

Where Should I Credit this Ticket?

The one complaint that we have with La Compagnie is that there isn’t any good place to credit frequent flyer miles. La Compagnie does have its own loyalty program, but you need to fly a lot to make it worth while.

How Should I Pay For This Ticket?

Considering that you don’t earn much in terms of frequent flyer miles, you need to maximize this deal by putting it on the correct credit card. I recommend booking this deal directly with the airline as that is the safest way to ensure that your tickets are in good hands.

The Platinum Card® from American Express offers 5x points on all airfare purchases made directly with airlines and Amex. If you purchased this ticket directly from the airline or with AmexTravel.com you should earn a minimum of 5,000 membership rewards points worth around ~$85 USD depending on how you value American Express Membership Rewards Points. You can learn more about The Platinum Card® from American Express here.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card

Regardless of where you purchase this ticket, if you pay with the Chase Sapphire Preferred you should earn ~2,000 Chase Ultimate rewards points worth around  ~$40 USD depending on how you value Chase Sapphire Rewards Points. You can learn more about the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card here.

Bottom Line

This deal is only around until the 13th, maximum and round trip business class tickets for under $1000 don’t come along often. This is a deal worth jumping on now! This deal gets even better especially when you consider that you could be spending Christmas in Paris.
