    All journeys to Paris should begin with champagne, and on this VIP trip to the City of Lights, it does. The business-class-only airline OpenSkies will transport you from New York to Paris on its redesigned Boeing 757s, which have just 84 seats. On board, dinner has four courses and wine pairings, movies are new releases and on-demand, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

    "All journeys to Paris should begin with champagne, and on this three-, four- or five-night VIP trip to the City of Lights, it does. The business-class-only airline OpenSkies will transport you from New York to Paris on its redesigned Boeing 757s, which have just 84 seats. On board, dinner has four courses and wine pairings, movies are new releases and on-demand, and the staff is bend-over-backwards sort. Once you've landed, you'll check in at one of Paris’s newest hotels, the Shangri-La Paris, in the chic 16th Arrondissement. Housed in a building that dates from 1896, it’s le dernier cri in Parisian luxury, with fantastic views, chandeliers aplenty, and totally dreamy rooms."

    Nice deal!
    With the $500 voucher, it's an awesome MR.
    IAD-ORY later this month is only $630 + tax ($330 with the voucher)
    Now that's an awesome deal, even if it was in economy!

    If I'm not mistaken, a Biz Seat r/t IAD-ORY is enough BA Points for a free r/t/ within Europe!

    I didn't realize that people couldn't access the basic information without a membership so I added some details to the first post.
