OpenSkies New York Fare Sale
OpenSkies, the latest in a string of carriers offering transatlantic flights between New York and Paris, is offering a deal for the first 1,000 customers on its new New York – Paris and New York – Amsterdam routes. Starup airlines flying these routes disappear even faster than cans of PBR at my family reunion, but this one may have a shot. It’s back by British Airways, and they seem to know how to work a little magic.
What’s this deal I mention? You can score a ticket in the Premium Plus cabin for $499 each way between New York and Amsterdam and $599 each way between New York and Paris, based on round trip purchase. The sale started on the 6th (sorry for the delay) and will last until the 1,000th customer has purchased his or her ticket to each destination.
The PREM+ cabin offers “comfort, space, service and amenities that rival many competing business class offerings.” However, being priced lower than a traditional business class ticket, this target customer for this cabin is the business traveler with a smaller budget. will continue until the 1,000th
ticket is booked on each route. What perks to you get over the folks back in steerage? You get:
- Leather seats with a 140 degree recline.
- 52 inches of legroom.
- Bottle-poured wines.
- Fresh, healthy meal service.
- Personal entertainment systems with more than 50 hours of programming.
- Electric outlets at every seat.
- Professional concierge service.
“As frequent travelers ourselves, we can appreciate how important a comfortable seat with a generous recline, more legroom, and attentive cabin service can be on a long flight, and we believe a challenging economy doesn’t have to put those things out of reach,” said Dale Moss, managing director of OpenSkies. “With a maximum of just 40 guests in our PREM+ cabin, we offer a business class experience without the business class price tag. In many ways, the PREM+ cabin is tailor made for today’s economic environment.
