#4: New York to Beijing with Korean Air – $27,000 round trip

Another New York flight to Asia comes in at #4 on our list, with a $27,000 cost. This is also a flight that is popular for international businessmen – who tend to be pretty damn wealthy – as New York City and Beijing represent two of the world’s largest urban hubs.

Korean Air boasts many impressive features that help to justify the insane cost of this intercontinental flight. The airline features patented Kosmo Sleeper Seats, which recline 100%, and can enclose passengers in their own private enclave, all with an easy-to-use, one-touch system. These sleeping amenities are perhaps what Korean Air is best known for, and with good reason – the Kosmo Sleeper Seats are amongst the most comfortable accommodations in the sky.

In addition to giving you a great night’s sleep while in the air, Korean Air serves gourmet food and top-shelf wine around the clock during this flight. You will truly be pampered as you travel across the Atlantic Ocean with Korean Air.


#3: San Francisco to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways – $28,090 round trip

If you haven’t heard, the United Arab Emirates – home to cities such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi – has become one of the world’s foremost luxury travel and business destinations. So it should come as no surprise that this flight to Abu Dhabi is one of the world’s most expensive.

Etihad Airways is one of the UAE’s two luxury airliners, and this round trip flight from San Francisco to Abu Dhabi is nothing but luxury through and through. Every passenger on this flight can relax in his or her own private, partitioned suite, which comes complete with a 23-inch flatscreen TV, a personal minibar, and upholstered leather furnishings.

Of course, the airline also features a gourmet, a-la-carte menu for passengers to enjoy at their whims as well.

While the flight to Abu Dhabi might be mighty expensive, you’ll have to be prepared to cough up a ton of cash during your stay in the city as well – Abu Dhabi offers some of the world’s finest hotels.
