Founded in 2014, La Compagnie (legal name ‘Dreamjet’) is a boutique French airline based at Orly Airport in Paris (ORY) that flies all-business class between Paris and Newark Liberty Airport (EWR) - near New York City.
As of 2018, the airline has two Boeing 757 aircrafts and services just one route (ORY>EWR and back).
• La Compagnie was founded by Frantz Yvelin, a French commercial pilot and CEO of Aigly Azure, France’s 2nd largest airline.
• They currently have 2 Airbus A321neo aircrafts ordered to replace their current fleet of Boeing 757s.
Despite only having one route, the airline does have a loyalty program called My Compagnie that allows you to earn points towards flights and services.
Unlike most other frequent flyer schemes, there are no tiers. Simply earn points based on your flight and fare (between 1-5 point per flights plus 2 points for every friend you invite to join). You can convert your points to round trip (40 points) or one way (20 points) tickets, and other services like oversize luggage (5 points) or change tickets (15 points).
La Compagnie also partners with XL Airways for round trip ticket flight starting at 15 points.
Due to the limited service that La Compagnie currently offers, there are no codesharing partnerships at this time.
La Compagnie only offers Business Class seats, with 74 seats in a 2-2 configuration.
The airline focuses on affordability over the luxuries of other airlines so there are less features to mention but most reviews mention that the savings in price makes up for the lack of indulgences.
