Milan-New York? Today’s flight is 100% business class!

Friday, 01 April 2022 08:00

Once upon a time there was a route called MiMa, short for Milan-Manhattan, operated by Eurofly, an Italian airline with business class-only flights from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other. On board the Airbus A319 there were just 48 seats, exclusive service and a Campari to sip (the drinks company was a partner). The experiment was not a success and was dropped after just six months. But that was 2006... They were other times. And other planes… 

Now, starting on 15 April, the French La Compagnie is betting on all-business flights between the Big Apple and the Italian fashion capital. A 100% smart Business Class. And the step from Campari to champagne is a done deal! The aircraft is an A321neo with 76 seats in a 2-by-2 cabin configuration that guarantees maximum comfort with fully reclining seats and state-of-the-art entertainment on the 15'7" screen.

Premium service is guaranteed from check-in to landing, or even earlier as you can book a chauffeur-driven car transfer to and from the airport where you have access to lounges in which to relax or work before your flight. The culinary experience will also be unique, with gourmet menus created by celebrity chefs from New York and Paris and, of course, from Italy for the menus on flights departing Milan.

The only thing left to do now is to see if La Compagnie can snag a market share on the Milan-New York route, which has always been a favourite with carriers both US and not - from American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines to Ita Airways, Neos and Emirates - on which there is no shortage of premium fares.
