Business Traveler (USA) - - TRIED AND TESTED -

cla­com­pag­ on my flight was more than ex­pected with a pip­ing hot omelet served with sausage and beans. On Paris to Ne­wark flights, a two-course hot meal is served after take­off and a sub­stan­tial cold cut plat­ter be­fore land­ing. My late-night din­ner was ac­com­pa­nied with a glass of Paolo Leo Nu­men Chardonnay 2011, and I was im­pressed with the se­lec­tion of wines and cham­pagne. After din­ner, I de­cided to get some shut-eye don­ning an eye mask and hop­ing for sound slum­ber, which quickly fol­lowed.

We landed in Paris on time and tax­ied to Ter­mi­nal 1. I was through im­mi­gra­tion and cus­toms within five min­utes of de­plan­ing – re­mem­ber, with so few pas­sen­gers on the plane, there is rarely a line – and was on my way into the city in no time.

La Compagnie may not of­fer the most elab­o­rate in­flight ser­vices or a fully flat bed, but at th­ese prices, it is a steal. This is avi­a­tion’s best kept se­cret, for now. BT
