Flights are getting ever more expensive in our ever changing economy. This is why you need to fish around for the best deals to make sure you get the most for your hard earned money.
Sites such as travelsupermarket.com and farecompare.com allow anyone to check for the best deal for their chosen flight. This gives the customer the chance to fly with the lowest miles, the lowest price and the least stops. To research the most expensive flights, we knew we had to stay away from these as we were looking at the other end of the market.
In this article we will be looking at the most expensive flights that you can board around the world. We have really gone to town with fishing out the most expensive journeys, and we have found some extremely overpriced flights that will make you wonder how Airlines work out the pricing involved with these trips.
A funny thing to note about these expensive flights is that most of the flights are either flying the wrong way around the world (hence the expensive price tag), or they are from airlines that you may not have heard of.
6 Texas to London, Skywest: $31,464
5 Miami to Tokyo, Lufthansa: $32,758
4 New York to Frankfurt, ANA Flights: $37,297
3 Santiago (Chile) to Beirut (Lebanon), Air France: $39,525
2 New York to Sao Paulo, ANA Flights: $40,994
1 Virgin Galactic, Space: $250,000
If you are looking to hit big heights in the next two years then get saving! Virgin Galactic is offering a seat for anyone willing to put $250,000 on the table. Although it is not classed as a direct journey to anywhere, it is still a paid flight. Famous faces who have already made their deposit include Stephen Hawking, Katy Perry, Ashton Kutcher, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. We did some research on the cost of the journey for Richard Branson (Owner of the Virgin brand) and it is reported that the cost of the one time trip will equate to $205 million. So for Branson to see a return on his money he would have to get 821 people to be on an aircraft that has space for around 750 people. With 640 people already signed up, it must be the fact that Branson is doing it for the love of innovation and not turning a profit. The flight is expected to depart sometime within the next two years (2014/2015.) For them it is sure to be an experience they will never forget.
