Biz-class Copes as L’Avion Joins British Airways’ OpenSkies

Posted July 8, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Lavion Just when you think that all those business passengers have it easy, what with their pick of several all-business-class carriers and flights to choose from, comfy wide seats and tasty food available, their world comes crashing down!

OK, maybe that was a little dramatic, but so are company takeovers (I can’t say for sure, though, having never participated in one). And the latest airline to be taken over? French business-class-only L’Avion, just purchased by British Airways, and soon to become part of OpenSkies, BA’s spin-off New York-to-Paris carrier.

If there’s one thing businesspeople appreciate, it’s predictability. In stock markets, in clothing styles, even in airplanes. Now, with L’Avion swimming the Channel to hook up with BA and OpenSkies, CEOs and middle managers alike will have to adapt. It won’t be easy getting used to the new name and new identity, but if the titans of industry want to fly in comfort, that’s what they’ll have to do. I prefer to stay safely at the back of the plane in coach, sore knees and all.
