Flying to Paris from New York City

Jan 18, 2008
How do you book the right flight to Paris from New York City? Which airlines have the least delays and which is the best way to go for the money? Flights to Paris all leave at night, which means any hang-ups the airport suffers throughout the day will affect your departure. Make sure you give yourself enough time for TSA security since the evening international flights tend to clog the checkpoints. Try to get through security between 10am and 2pm when the fewest flights depart. An option is to pay $100 per year and sign up for Clear Registered Travel. With this benefit, you can access a dedicated lane and you will not even have to remove your shoes. Clear has lanes at Terminals 1, 4 and 7 at JFK and Terminal B at Newark.

Even the best direct flights from JFK and Newark land on schedule less than 50 percent of the time. The best airline is Delta from JFK to Charles de Gaulle which leaves at 5pm, early enough to avoid some of the cascading delays of the evening. On a positive note, an Air France flight departing at 10:55pm have an average delay of only 30 minutes.

The diamond of the bunch is new luxury airline, LAvion. The company owns a single jet which leaves Newark six days a week at 7:05pm and lands at Orly at 7:45pm, 95 percent of the time. The luxury comes with a hefty price tag of $1,083.00 which guarantees you a comfortable business class flight. This is your only option with LAvion since the aircraft only caters to the business class flights. In comparison to other business class flights to Paris, LAvion is the best bet not only in being punctual but comfort. LAvion return flight leaves Paris at 2:50pm and arrives in Newark at 5:45pm. The flight to Paris to avoid at all costs is Air France 6pm departure which is delayed over 80 percent of the time.

Finally in Paris, a little jet-lagged but ready to go. Whatever you do, avoid falling asleep. This will truly spin the top of your body clock in Paris. My other tip is to avoid hotels at all costs. If your wallet allows, treat yourself to a first rate Paris luxe apartment. Paris Luxe has an extensive portfolio of magazine quality Paris apartments. For those not blessed with extra dollars, opt for the more reasonably price, Book Your Paris Apartment. These apartments are clean, centrally located and will not leave any holes burning in your pants.
