Virgin Atlantic is currently selling flights to New York in its Upper Class for only €1,284 for those who can depart from Paris. While SkyTeam and Oneworld are selling flights from Paris to New York nonstop, these flights, with a layover in London, are a tiny bit cheaper. Now it is up to you to decide with which airline you want to cross the Atlantic.
You would first fly to London in Air France’s business class, from where you’d fly to New York on Virgin Atlantic’s Airbus A350. Two pieces of luggage, each up to 32 kg heavy, are included.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
