There's a recent airline company called L'Avion (, which also has Summer Special Offers.

This company exclusively offers business class tickets in a customized Boeing from Paris to New York at low cost.

I recently flew L'Avion and the service, the comfort... was just amazing!!!

That's a company to recommend
