    La Compagnie is the all business class airline operating flights between Newark and Paris, and as of a couple of months ago, flights between Newark and London. The airline launched last July, and no doubt has had some "growing" pains as they ramped up operations, despite being run by two seasoned airline executives. Unfortunately the operational challenges don't seem to have become much better since they launched their second route between Newark and London. Due to a combination of late delivery of their second plane and routine maintenance on their first plane, they had some "creative" solutions to operating their schedule: -- On some days they operated a "milk run" between Newark and Paris, whereby they consolidated the two flights and stopped in London -- They leased a Portuguese A340 which used to belong to Emirates, and operated it some days - On top of all that, they've cancelled several frequencies I spoke to La Compagnie's Deputy CEO at the time, and he assured me that the airline would operate their Newark to London frequencies 6x weekly as of June 1, 2015. But unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. The post La Compagnie Is Still Canceling Flights To London… Why? appeared first on One Mile at a Time.
