What's The Most Expensive Airline Ticket?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

How much does it cost to fly from New York to Dubai? What if you want to fly first class? What if you want to leave tomorrow?

Here's the challenge:

  • book the most expensive airline ticket possible
  • take a screenshot (it should look like my $17,660.60 Emirates flight above)
  • list the airline (if it's not explicit in the screenshot)
  • show your proof in Kinja below.

Tomorrow we'll post the ten most expensive tickets you can find.

Here are the rules:

  • The ticket must be one way. No round trip flights.
  • No private planes. It has to be on an airline.
  • The entire journey must take place in the air. You can't take some section of the journey by train or bus.
  • You can only book from one city to another. You're allowed connections, but you're not allowed to route yourself through multiple stops. Let's say you book from Tokyo to Caracas and it wants you to stop over in Dubai and Dakar. That's fine. You just can't book a multi-city flight from Tokyo to Dubai to Dakar to Caracas.

So there you go! Surely you can link together a couple of far-flung tiny airports and pay out the ass. Show us your best in Kinja below.
