What is the maximum amount of money you've paid for a ticket?

I've paid about GBP700 (US$1295) for DXB/IAH/DXB.

What about you?

I paid about US$7,200 for a business class ticket from New York to London a few years ago. Believe it or not, that was not the full business class fare!

$619 for my CID-ORD-LAX-ORD-CID roundtrip last weekend. Upgraded to biz with miles...not terrible, especially for buying the ticket less than 2 hours before my flight left!

Damn... I could have multiple European vacations for just the cost of your airfare! I assume it's worth it?

My most expensive was a walk-up one-way domestic F class on CO DAB-EWR at $300 or so

$2,000 to fly QF from LAX-SYD-LAX. I left LA at 1pm on winter solstice and arrived in SYD at 10pm, the day after summer solstice. Spent Christmas and Boxing Day on a beach in Sydney and I was in Melbourne for New Years Eve (real millennium 2000-2001). Christmas/New Years is the most expensive time to fly to Australia but it was worth every penny! Oh and I flew in coach....... At least I was able to charm the reservation agent into reserving me a seat in the emergency exit row both directions. It was heaven and right next to the galley......beer supply.

That same flight would have cost me a little over $700 during the off season.



I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....

Personally- $475 for CLE-DTW-PLN-DTW-CLE on NW (the flight is actually in August of this year)

For a flight I took but my company paid for- ~$900 CLE-FWA

I may not have anyone beat on a pure dollar basis, but I think $ per mile in economy, I may be a winner (CLE-FWA was about $2.25 per mile round-trip).

Me personally ? I think it was SYD-BKK-FCO-LHR-FCO-BKK-SYD on QF in J - can't remember how much is was, but it was quite a lot (I was contracting at QF at the time and got a very good fare, but still) - worth it though, I was only going to the UK for two weeks, so had to fly straight through to save time.

The company paid EUR7800.00 for a business trip NCE-MXP-TNR-MRU-DXB-SEZ-CDG-NCE. I think I will be in the doghouse for that for years to come, and will be made to go to Tajikistan for extended "consulting" as punishment  Smile

I one paid $1700 for KL, LX & AM MEX-AMS-CDG / ZRH-MAD - MEX!

and there were two of them as I went with my brother. My dad definately wasn't happy for a couple of months.

But that was because we looked up for the tickets almost 2 weeks before the trip!

Never paid a lot.

The most expensive would be 600 EUR in business for LO's BRU-WAW-ORD/EWR-WAW-BRU, and considering I'm a travel agent, That's a LOT!!

£329 for BHX-AMS-PVG-AMS-BHX with KLM.

Very good ticket price I think, considering I only booked it 4 or so weeks before I left.

Paid US$4,800 for business class on UA/EK IAH-SFO-NRT-HKG/BKK-DXB-CDG-IAD-IAH. Thought it was a bargain since we were updated to First Class on EK from DXB to CDG. Keep the Dom Perignon flowing please.

Wow where did you go?

Since I'm quite young I am not including what my parents paid for me! (God bless them BTW  Wink) Must have been around 430 Euros for a BRU-IAD!

One way:
£5030 / $9300 / 7360 Euros for LHR-JFK on Concorde in September 2002.

Return:
LHR-LAX-LHR in BA F about five/six years ago. Of the routes I've flown in paid F LAX is the most expensive and while I cannot remember the price of the ticket today it is around £5600/$9800.

I pride myself on getting cheap fares so my highest is a pittyful (compared to some) £330 to Air Canada for LHR-YHZ-YUL-YYZ-LAX-PDX-YVR-YYC-LHR. I'm still proud of myself as I managed to squeeze plenty of sectors in for my buck. This was of course in January. I am pretty much grounded during summer due to high fares  Sad
