Most Expensive Ticket In The World?

Fri Oct 01, 2004 10:05 pm

I was just wondering this last night. What would be the most expensive point to point ( Not round the world stuff) ticket in the world right now? When Concorde was about- it usually took the cake I think. My guess is that it might be on the Signapore Airlines service to NYC?

I am thinking long, thin routes with no direct competition and a significant business demand. How much would it cost? $10,000 round trip? Any feedback or thoughts on this would be cool!

The most expensive I could find was an unrestricted First Class fare London-Papeete on an Eastern Hemisphere routing - GBP13295.00 return.

Ah, BW - but are you flying First Class on an eastbound routing ? Not that it makes any difference, I think I can safely say that just for telling us you're going to Tahiti, everyone on a.net now hates you.

I got a price quote from BA for first class from DTW-SYD and it ended up more than $60,000 which is retarded.

That is quite an exotic round trip first class ticket! Wow- that is like $18,000! A lot lighter in the wallet after that one. lol
Do special bells go off at HQ when someone purchases this ticket? ha ha.

Perhaps on a per-mile basis, for a coach ticket, are the US/DL shuttles LGA-DCA. Those tickets are $212.00 o/w for last minute travel, so about $1 per mile flown.
