It’s been seven years, but the break is over. As of April 2015, French airline La Compagnie will fly business class-only flights from Luton to New York. The Boeing 757 will start off with four trips a week, and there is hope that these will increase in the Summer.
With menus carefully thought up by the French chef Christophe Langrée and fully recumbent seats, this will be a sought after service, offering a direct journey to Newark International Airport.
La Compagnie already run a similar service between Paris and New York.
We get the feeling that these might not just be appealing to business travellers, with two 32kg suitcases allowed, there might just be a few shoppers on board!
