La Compagnie will move to fully-flat business class beds on flights between New York and Paris in 2019 with the debut of two new Airbus A321neo jets on the route.
The boutique all-business class airline currently flies two older Boeing 757-200 fitted with just 74 angled seats which recline to 175 degrees.
However, the A321neos will upgrade the seven-hour transatlantic experience to fully lie-flat seats, along with inflight WiFi to keep connected above the clouds.
A spokeswoman for La Compagnie tells Australian Business Traveller that the airline is considering two different designs for the all-new seat, although it will retain the current 2-2 layout to see the A321neo fitted with either 76 or 80 seats.
Airlines typically configure the A321neo to carry around 200 passengers, which illustrates the relative luxury of an all business-class configuration.
La Compagnie's current Boeing 757 jets give passengers a 26 inch-wide seat – significantly more spacious than a business class on the Qantas A380, for example – with a generous 62 inch pitch.
La Compagnie – French for "The Company" – runs twice-daily flights between Gotham and the City of Lights and pampers its premium passengers with anti-allergenic pillows, large soft blankets, and a Caudalie travel care kit, along with restaurant-grade meals from renowned chefs.
