La Compagnie New A321 Neo Planes
My wife and flew this airline (EWR - CDG) last April and had a very good experience. The planes (757) are a bit tired but the service was good and we were on time in both directions. You can't beat the price we paid of $1700 RT to sit in business class even though it's not totally lie flat. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about the April delivery of their new A321 Neo's? They are supposed to receive 2 of them to replace their 757's but curious if anyone out there knows if those deliveries are on time and/or where I can look to find out more specific delivery information possibly from Airbus? We want to book a trip to Paris in the Spring and really want to fly on these new planes. I was only able to find press releases and articles just saying the expected delivery was April.

I will fly them in April and am not counting on the new airplanes being ready. This is not their fault but Airbus has met many problems with the Neo, particularly due to engine making issues. If you book anything before September I think there is a high chance that there will be irregularities.

Now given the price I paid for the tickets, I am ready to deal with some issues and be flexible. Moreover I am aware that La Compagnie are planning to open a new route to Nice in May. It seems that they expect their new aircraft about on time, unlike me, that they will also keep their 757s and that they have a plan B... or not.

They seem to be heavily promoting the new NCE-EWR route begining in May (through Sept) for US$1200 r/t. Wonder if they'll use the new aircraft on this route or keep it for Paris, and switch the older planes to Nice ?

Just an update: they intend to start operating the NEOs on June 6, according to their website. Random Expertflyer queries show a combination of NEO and 757 on both routes in June but in August 321 only to/from ORY and 757 to/from NCE, I suppose a lot will change by then, e.g. not clear how they will move staff from ORY to NCE.
