Fashion, food, culture and iconic sights, Paris has it all! If it hasn’t made it onto your bucket list, it most definitely should!
Dreaming of Paris? No Better Time than NOW!
There are very few places in my travels that have left such a lasting impression on me as Paris, France. Paris is full of life and incredibly diverse in the most beautiful and romantic ways. Whether you want to spend your days outside enjoying the beautiful gardens, picnicking at sunset under the Eiffel Tower or admiring art at the Louvre or the Musée d’Orsay, Paris has something for everyone.
The one detail holding most people back however happens to be the high cost of transatlantic flights. Thankfully, for us in Los Angeles XL Airways is launching a brand new affordably priced route 3 times per week from LAX to Paris (CDG) starting June 1- September 28th.
Who is XL Airways?
XL Airways is a French based airline that was founded in 1995. They have been flying non-stop from the US to France for over 8 years on a scheduled seasonal basis out of JFK, SFO & MIA. They recently announced they would be introducing a new route out of LAX starting this summer.
Why should you care?
XL Airways is known for their amazingly affordable airfares to France and unlike most budget airlines their ticket fee actually includes both meal service AND your baggage fees in the price of the ticket. They believe that Affordable Fares + Good Service = Great Value. And, that is what they want to give you.
On Board Experience
XL Airways will be flying you out in an Airbus 330-200 which boasts 364 passenger seats (21 in their Galaxy Class and an additional 343 in economy) split up in a 3-3-3 layout in economy. Their seats have adequate legroom and recline to ensure your comfort.
Cozy blankets are offered on all overnight flights. As always, I would recommend packing some cozy socks, a travel pillow and an eye mask to ensure the most enjoyable in-flight sleep experience. I never hop on board with out them.
They offer two overhead movies as well as television shows on their flights to and from Paris. Audio plugs are available so you can plug in your own headphones and enjoy the included films.
Or if you fancy additional entertainment options you can purchase one of their pre-loaded Samsung Galaxy Tabs for an additional fee. I would recommend downloading a few movies to your laptop or ipad and call it a day! There are two power outlets at each row so you will have enough power to run your electronics the whole time you are in the air. Easy peasy!
If you have flown lately you know that many airlines, especially ones offering lower fares, have completely cut meal service. On XL Airways however economy tickets still include a complimentary hot meal plus a snack (SFO, MIA, LAX). Children also receive a complimentary second kids meal. Water and hot drinks (tea/coffee/hot chocolate) are also included and are offered during the meal service.
Galaxy Class passengers will be treated to even more meals in addition to what is mentioned above. A full line of international entrees and special meals are also available online for an additional fee.
As I previously mentioned XL Airways includes baggage in their ticket price as well. Each passenger receives an allowance of: 1 checked bag up to 44 lbs. Plus, 1 carry-on piece up to 11 lbs. and 1 personal item.
They say travel is the only thing you can spend money on that makes you richer and I agree 100%.
Traveling has transformed my outlook on life and increased my happiness exponentially. Paris specifically is one of the places I have visited that I knew I walked away a better person. So, I strongly believe everyone should visit the city of lights at least once in their lifetime. What better time than NOW?
It’s Your Time
So, there you have it, an affordable airfare to one of the most prestigious and sought after destinations. I say throw caution to the wind, follow your dreams and find your happy place- in Paris of course!
