Eos, a new airline trying to lure high-paying passengers from major carriers between New York and London, said it received U.S. approval to start service Nov. 1.

The airline said it’s offering $1,500 discounts on its $6,500 fare for flights between John F. Kennedy International Airport and the London area’s Stansted Airport.

Eos will start with one daily flight, using Boeing 757s laid out to provide each of 48 passengers with 21 square feet of personal space and seats that recline into a 6 ½-foot-long bed. Investors, including Golden Gate Capital and Seattle-based Maveron, provided $85 million in capital, Eos said in June.
