Available on a first-come-first-served basis until 22 September, the pass can be bought by customers in the United States and Europe, costing $40,000 or €35,000 respectively. Purchase must be made in one single instalment and the ticket is non-transferable. The offer is valid for one full year from the first flight, which must be booked before December 15, 2018 to activate the pass. La Compagnie offers two flights from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport to New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport and vice versa every day (except Tuesdays, which has one flight from Paris to New York and vice versa) and the pass can be used as many times as desired by travellers with a maximum booking of four legs at any given time.

First introduced in 2016, the L’Unlimited pass has been reintroduced this year due to popular demand. La Compagnie’s aircrafts offer 74 lie-flat seats and amenities such as Samsung Galaxy Tablets, cosmetic kits and dining experiences that include fresh menu items created by chefs from both the Big Apple and the City of Light. The pass comes with one year’s use of the dedicated concierge service for reserving, changing or cancelling tickets, all of which is done through a direct phone line or by using a dedicated email address. Reservations can be modified or cancelled up to three hours before departure with no additional charge.
