Hot of the new that American Airlines are launching a Boston to Heathrow route, IAG low-cost airline LEVEL are planning to launch a Paris-Orly to Boston Logan Airport.
The new route will operate three times a week between Orly and Boston, based on the following timetable:
IB2693 DEPART ORY 19:15 ARRIVE BOS 21:00B IB2694 DEPART BOS 23:00 ARRIVE ORY 12:05+1 Commences 31st March 2020 Operates Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays Booked equipment: LEVEL Airbus A330-200
LEVEL operate their Airbus A330-200s in a two-class configuration, with a Premium Economy with 21 seats 293 seats in the economy cabin (at least LEVEL has maintained a 2-4-2 seat layout in Economy)
Lead-in fares start at €99 one way in the economy at €399 in premium economy – and tickets are waiting to be sold according to the LEVEL site
