How to fly from the US to France and back in 1 week
We can’t even get a hold of an airline that’s going to do our leg, let alone the one we’re flying from.
In the last week, the only options for flying from New York to Paris are the US-bound flights from New Jersey to Washington DC, and the French-bound flight from New Orleans to Paris.
The US-only flights to France cost US$4,995 (about €3,100), while the French flights from Paris to New York are $5,695 (about £4,700).
We’ve reached out to Air France and the airlines directly, and we’ll update this post if we hear back.
France, however, seems to have its own solution to this problem: a flight to Italy.
In a post on its website, Air France says that its service from New Amsterdam to Naples is available through its Italian subsidiary, Airjet, which is owned by Air France’s parent company, AirFrance.
It says that “Airjet is able to make direct connections between New Amsterdam and Naples in the shortest possible time, at very low cost, and is in the process of doing so.”
Airjet has operated from Naples for more than a decade, and it was a first choice for most Americans when the airline was founded in 1985.
It now operates from the same cities and airspace as Air France.
In addition to flights from the Netherlands to Italy, AirJet is now also available from Paris, Madrid, Madrid to Marseille, Barcelona to Milan, Naples to Venice, Genoa to Florence, Genova to Venice.
However, in a tweet that followed the announcement, Air Jet said that it will not fly from any airports outside of New York, London, and Amsterdam.
“We will have direct connections with the airports closest to us in the USA and Europe, as well as international air routes,” the company said.
The tweet was retweeted by a Twitter user named @the_spork and shared by multiple news sites, including Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal.
In an email to Ars, Airjet wrote that the tweets are incorrect.
“This is a very serious error, which was shared on Twitter, without our permission or knowledge,” the airline said.
“In fact, we are sorry for this misunderstanding, and are working to correct it immediately.
We will also provide an update when we can.”
The tweet also suggested that the tweet was shared by a company named Airjet.
The post has since been removed from the company’s website.
“AirJet has never been involved in or had any direct involvement with Airjet Italy, nor do we intend to do so in the future,” the Airjets said.
Airjet said it was working with the Italian government to address the issue.
“For now, we ask that you kindly stop all traffic to and from the airport from the United States, Canada, and other EU countries,” the statement read.
The airline has a fleet of 737 MAX jets, and Airjet plans to continue using them as long as the airlines are able to handle the volume of orders.
“However, we do not currently have the capacity to handle such large orders,” the tweet said.
Ars reached out for comment to Airjet and Airjeta.
The Airjettas tweet was not the first time Airjetzas tweet about its service to the UK was controversial.
In March, Air jets tweeted that it was “proud to serve you, but this isnt a UK issue.
We are from the UK.”
