Valuemags once had a deal where we could get about 150 points per dollar on magazine subscriptions. I spent about $3000 and got 2 roundtrip Concorde tickets.

The other was more expensive, but still fun. I think it was in 1999. One way First Class fares Italy - Los Angeles were about $3999. I routed myself FCO-LHR-JFK-LAX, and I was able to get LHR-JFK on the Concorde! Usual one way LHR-JFK on the Concorde was closer to $7000.

We were about to book on QR (J Class) from MNL-DOH-EWR, it was only $1100 so it was really low compared to other premium prices, however, at that time QR was operating at EWR instead of JFK where we live near, so we went with EY instead.

It's a cultural thing.

I haven't yet taken this, but I fully intend to use PIA's J-class on ORD-BCN. It can be as low as $1500 roundtrip.

When Iberia's subsidiary Air Nostrum offered a slot warmer LGW-MAH flight a few years ago, operated as C only with all the trimmings and niceties. Iberia sold it for over £700 on their site, only the message about it being C only obviously didn't reach BA because they sold it for £35 each way. Short flight, but very nice service.

4 continent oneworld Explorer in First - $11,900 p.p. a couple of years ago - given the fact 10 of the 19 flights were in bona fide longhaul First Class it was an absolute bargain IMO.

BOS-SEA-BOS in AA First Class for $480 return.

A few years ago booked IAD-LHR-IAD on BA in World Traveller Plus for about $700 then upgraded to Club World with miles. Then got operationally upgraded to First both ways. Not the best deal in the strictest sense but getting a longhaul F return for $700 put a smile on my face   

Whilst not a great deal in the scheme of things paying a shade over £5000 for LHR-JFK on Concorde looks to be a great deal now....since I probably won't fly supersonic on a commercial airline again in my lifetime...

Also booked my parents in AA First Class LHR-JFK for £400 per person when Expedia screwed up a fare load a few years back.
