Business class at Economy class price
Pros: Service, flight attendants, seats, comfort, just about everything
Pros: Crew was terrific. Plane is fine but could use a little bit of refurbishment.
Cons: Food not really very good. No internet on flight Relatively few entertainment choices
Pros: Greatbto have only business class No line to board Great priority line for immigration
Cons: The tablets used for the entertainment are of poor quality On the way out 2 tablets were out of battery In the way back the tablet sound jack was not working well
Cons: Entertainment systems didn't work
Great budget business option
Pros: This is a great budget option, as long as you remember that it is a budget option and so most of what you get will be a little less than competitors. I wrote plenty of criticism below, but in the end I would fly with them again as it is still quite a lot cheaper than competitors business class options and a better experience than flying economy.
Cons: Our return flight was cancelled weeks in advance and we were rescheduled for the following day. Not a problem for us, but could have been for someone else. Then our outbound flight was delayed because the earlier flight came in late. The lounge was a little stuffy and food average, also being before the security made us a little nervous. As for the flight experience, the seats were stiff but roomy and don't lay down like a bead, but flat at an angle. Half the movies on the tablets didn't work so the entertainment options were limited. This is probably hit or miss but the crew member assigned to our section continuously skipped over us during service to help other customers.
Pros: It really was a great experience I will travel again with them if I have the opportunity
Pros: we loved the comfort, food crew, everything! We wish they would fly more destinations in the nearest future!
Very comfortable flight
Pros: I liked the seats and service
Cons: Lounge area was overcrowded
Pros: In flight service superb.
Cons: One of our seats didn't work, they switched us. The lounges are not too good. The check in in Paris really slow
Pros: Flight to London and back. Both flights were on time. Crew was attentive and helpful. Bump free check in. Food was ok. Entertainment was good. Some tablets have different selections of movies and shows. If you have a round trip and did not finish watching your movie you may not have the same selection of programs back. So may exchange it for a different tablet to finish watching.it was a nice fligh!!! Would highly recommend!
Cons: Chairs have problem functioning. Very old and you may not be lucky to have a chair that reclines all the way down. You will need a help of the crew member so they have to hit the chair right way so it will work. It was fun. They are pro in it. Or you have to change a seat for the one that works. But chairs are comfortable otherwise. If they upgrade the salon it will be the best business class flight for the price!!! I hope they do it.
The overall experience was fantastic!
Pros: Check in, boarding, space, service- all were first class all the way. At some point there was an unfortunate odor from a fellow passenger and they even blew air freshener.
Cons: The food was really mediocre. And the chairs were confusing. They look and act like business class lay flat chairs, but the angle makes it so you sorta slide down all night. Not sure who designed the seats- but they are odd. Still 90% better than coach and only 10% off true business first. Overall I really recommend the airline
Pros: Check in, food, seat (great for the price), baggage delivery (incredibly fast!!!!) AND: the smile of the dedicated crew. What a change ! I absolutely love La compagnie.
New favorite airline
Pros: It's all super. Perhaps, as some folks have said earlier, it's not big airline business, but it's surely much better than regular economy. Big seats, courteous staff, good food, "sleepable" bed/seat, very comfortable. We also liked having the use of their comfortable and quiet lounge which was not far from security check in. Easy boarding because there were maybe 30 +/- people on the flight from CDG to EWR
Cons: Nothing except my partner's seat got stuck in down position but the crew quickly fixed that so it wasn't even a problem.
Good Business Class Service at a Lower Cost
Pros: Really enjoyed my first flight on La Compagnie. It's a great opportunity to get a business class fare at a premium economy price. The seats were reasonably comfortable, although somewhat confusing to manipulate. Food was good. Nice options for in-flight entertainment. I would fly again.
All just fine
Pros: We travel to Europe for pleasure a couple times a year and routinely fly economy. For a little more money we can fly La Compagnie. It's so much better. We had dinner in their lounge: a nice buffet with tortellinis, meatballs and fish with veggies, bread, salad, and cookies for dessert. And lots of wine, beer, and champagne. What's not to like. Boarding was simple -- so few people. Seats were very comfortable. I was able to curl up and sleep. Not a king size bed but plenty of room for me. Went to sleep almost immediately because we didn't have to wait for dinner. Great idea. Excellent breakfast with real metal flatware -- what a surprise on a plane. Could be our new favorite airline.
Pros: I was very surprised at how nice the staff were. The seats are comfortable and it was a pleasurable trip to Paris.
Keep it up !
Pros: Great value for the money. Like the lounge access and fast track upgrade as aprt of the fare price. Check in was very quick. Good service and comfortable seat although it still does not get you flat for an overnight sleep. Entertainment system needs upgrading as it had to be re-booted twice to get movies to play and the selection was just ok.( no current movies) but overall very pleased with the experience.
Pros: I like the idea of a all business airline as I have been wondering why for many years nobody thought about it or implemented it. With only 72 seats the boarding is easy, the sears are comfortable and the food is fairly good (French). The service is good but a little spotty.
Cons: It is a small airline with only 2 airplanes, so far, so if one or both have a delay the all schedule gets messed up and it happened to me twice (on the way to Paris and on the way back to EWR). This may cause you a lot of trouble if you have connecting flights with other airlines. Read losing the ticket. The entertainment session can be better as they offer old movies. It didn't bother me on the way to Paris but it was something missing on the way back to the States.
