OpenSkies has revolutionized air travel with an innovative concept: fewer passengers per plane and top-notch service in an all-business environment. A premium subsidiary of British Airways launched in June 2008, OpenSkies flies from both New York-Newark and Washington-Dulles to Paris-Orly using a fleet of specially redesigned Boeing 757s that carry a maximum of 84 passengers in two cabins, both business class. (The typical configuration of a 757 has just under 200 seats.) In the Biz Bed cabin, seats recline 180 degrees, transforming into completely flat beds; in the Biz Seat cabin, seats recline 140 degrees, and the 2×2 configuration means that every passenger has either an aisle or a window seat.
Bonuses begin even before you board: all passengers have access to airport business lounges and can bypass long lines through “Fast-Track” check-in lanes. With fewer passengers per plane, boarding and deplaning is speeded up—taking 10 minutes or less—and service is more personalized. Both cabins offer quality dining service, with a wide choice of meals served on china and a selection of top-notch wines and champagne; personal on-demand video entertainment systems carry over 50 hours of movies, TV, games and more; and every seat has a universal power outlet.
While other airlines charge up to $50 per bag each way, at OpenSkies there is no charge for up to three checked bags. And, as part of the British Airways family, OpenSkies customers can earn and redeem British Airways BA miles.
All these luxurious accommodations and amenities come at prices that are in line with premium and full fare economy pricing at other airlines. When passenger satisfaction was measured in a June 2010 survey conducted by the airline, over 96% of the 4,250 passengers polled said they would recommend OpenSkies.
