I shudder to think what the fare would be, but THIS is what intercontinental flights should be like!!http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/312373_1015244358...
Let's see. We just priced roundtrip first and business from Newark to Australia. Most is that or better. Price???? $19,000+Bob ... not paying THAT
Yeah, that is excessive.They could probably reduce per-passenger costs if they had a second level, basically "bunk beds". Twice as many passengers per flight, half the cost (roughly). I'd pay more for an actual bed on such long flights (not $19K extra, but maybe 2-3x a normal fare).1poorguy (can't sleep sitting up)
We just priced roundtrip first and business from Newark to Australia. Most is that or better. Price???? $19,000+You could save a few thou by booking one flight round trip EWR-LAX in coach and then the Australia leg round trip in business. I'm totally with you. I've made the round trip from LAX in steerage and it is brutal.Chili
Nice seats -I just looked at booking a trip to Europe on Lufthansa. While not quite the same seats, they do lie flat and allow you to relax and sleep. Special fares are running 2800 to 3800 R/T including all taxes and fees.
Well, per Ormont, here is the crossing on Cunard for about $1,000 per person. Full bed PLUS food and drink (not peanuts).http://www.cunard.com/cruise-search/book-a-cruise/cruises/qm...bob
Actually, if I were retired and time was not a factor I would consider ocean crossings like that if the price was comparable. Planes have speed on their side, which is important when you are taking a 2-week vacation.1poorguy
