The "value" of the airfares do seem a little steep. $29,000 for 4 people to fly to London?

Don't forget that you're being flown First Class, not Economy. I just did a search on Expedia and Orbitz, and both sites showed that round trip, First Class airfare from EWR or JFK to Heathrow for four nights (depart on Friday, return on Tuesday) is between $10,500 and $12,000 per person for a non-stop flight, down to about $6,500 per person for a one-stop flight. This was with a mid-June time frame for this year.

I'm sure that, depending on the time of year that you choose, you could get even less expensive rates. But the fact of the matter is that First Class airfare is bloody expensive, and their ARV of $29,000 isn't that inflated at all if you go with a one-stop flight. If it's non-stop, they're actually giving a lower price for the ARV.
