By on April 15, 2015

#2: Los Angeles to Dubai with Emirates – $30,000 round trip

As we mentioned in the previous entry on this list, the United Arab Emirates tends to be a pretty expensive place. And this flight from Los Angeles to Dubai is even more expensive than the $28,090 it takes to get you from San Francisco to Abu Dhabi.

Emirates Airlines is the other of the UAE’s two prestigious airlines, and the airline has a pristine reputation as one of the finest in the world. Guests on an Emirates flight can enjoy fully partitioned private suites, individual minibars, flat-laying mattress beds, vanity tables, airborne spa treatments, and much more.

The food and drink aboard this flight is, of course, top-notch as well, and guests will leave with their stomachs just as happy as the rest of their bodies.

For $30,000, Emirates provides a truly incomparable experience as you fly in and out of one of the world’s most luxurious cities.


#1: New York to Hong Kong with Lufthansa – $43,535 round trip

Easily the most expensive plane ticket in the world, this flight from New York to Hong Kong aboard Germany’s famous luxury airline will run you nearly $50,000.

So what does such an exorbitant price get you in the skies? Well, a lot. Lufthansa’s big-money flight offers a menu of Michelin-starred, gourmet food selections, a wine selection curated by renowned Sommelier Markus Del Monego, partitioned private suites, air humidifiers, designer toiletry kits, and 24-hour employees that will cater to a guest’s every need.

All of these luxury features seem to do the trick for Lufthansa, which is consistently ranked as one of the world’s premier airlines, year after year. However, if you want to experience Lufthansa’s splendor for yourself, you’ll have to be willing to cough up over $43,000.
