The 5 Most Expensive Luxury Airline Tickets

By on April 15, 2015

Air travel is becoming something that is more and more expensive all of the time. Plane tickets cost more today than they ever have before, and it seems unlikely that prices are going to drop any time in the near future.

While most of us cringe at handing over a few hundred bucks for a flight across the country, for the mega-rich, and for many international businessmen and women, expensive, intercontinental flights can run into the range of tens of thousands of dollars in a hurry.

On the world’s finest airlines, especially if you’re traveling first class, plane tickets can cost much more than new cars.

Here are the five priciest plane tickets in the world. These luxury airline tickets will make you think twice before complaining about your next $500 flight.


#5: Hong Kong to New York with Cathay Pacific – $26,572 round trip

For over $25,000, this plane ticket from Hong Kong to New York and back (or vice versa) is well out of the price range most of us would even consider for an intercontinental flight. However, for big-time Hong Kong businessmen, the price of admission is worth it for flying in style aboard Cathay Pacific’s Boeing 777-300ER.

The plane Cathay Pacific uses for this flight has its seats in a unique 1-1-1 configuration, giving every passenger a ton of room on the 14-hour transatlantic flight. We don’t mean just leg room, either. Each passenger gets a wide-berth bed and a flatscreen TV, so that when they’re not sleeping, passengers can relieve themselves from the tedium of air travel.

In addition to the cozy amenities, Cathay Pacific serves decadent Hong Kong dishes and plenty of caviar during the flight. Passengers can also choose from an impressive selection of wines to help them sleep just a little bit better. For $26,572, Cathay Pacific makes sure that all of your needs are met on this long, international flight.
