Would you consider French Bee an LCC? They do fly year-round from Paris-Orly to San Francisco and on to Papeete on their Airbus A350′ s offering a lot of seats. I would surmise they are not losing money.
On its website French Bee calls itself “low cost et long courrier francaise.”
Seating is dense. There’s an extra seat across in both premium and economy.
So A330 is 2-3-2 in premium and 3-3-3 in Y.
With the A350 it’s 2-3-2 premium and 3-4-3 in Y.
Interesting to see the recent announcement for LGW outbounds of increase for leisure heavy services (FLL/MCO) for W23/24, and yet a reduction to BOS/IAD… probably indicative of the direction of the business model…

This winter Norse is moving into the Caribbean market flying out of LGW.
We shall be posting details soon but it’s the first time any LCC (from Europe) has served several destinations in the Caribbean.
It also launching flights to Bangkok this winter (just as Norwegian did some years ago) but these will depart Oslo – see separate Forum thread.
