Astronomical Airfares

While most people look for the cheapest airfares, Rob Cockerham sought out the most expensive fares from several different airlines. Unsurprisingly, the priciest tickets were either last-minute bookings or scheduled near Christmas. Adding a carbon offset didn't add much, relative to the astronomical ticket prices you could book. The highest fare came from British Airways, but that doesn't mean they are the most expensive airline overall. Link

When I was booking my flight for Malay back in 2004, I was curious to see what a round trip from Atlanta to Kuala Lumpur would be. Over 20k for a 22 hour flight in first class. I ended up spending $1300 on four flights booked seperately. The cheapest flight I found that year was $237 round trip to Germany.
