Well, sure enough the airline started taking bookings in December and today, January 3, they had their inaugural flight. I definitely didn’t see that one coming.
I’m impressed how quickly they got off the ground, but I’m also skeptical about their chances for success. They didn’t start taking reservations until a few days ago, so they haven’t been able to build their business much so far. That means that if you need to fly between Newark and Paris/Orly, you could get a smoking deal right now as they scratch and claw for customers. The first 1000 people to book get a $999 roundtrip fare. Remember, this is all business class.
I’m not sure how long they’ll last, but it’s a good deal worth looking at for trips in the near future.
