I kind of think he's just milking it tbh. Look at the business class option, you are paying £1,900 for no lounge access a meal that is the same as you would get in economy class and a flat bed which to be honest isn't any big deal during the day. Same applies with first class.to be fair to Mile's, it is a five and a half hour flight into Asia where the charter operator likely has no infrastructure on the ground, unlike flying to to Europe, so they have to pay for all the fueling crews, maintenance inspections, whatever you can think of on top. plus the planes will sit there until the flight back,
I am not saying that he shouldn't treat this trip like any other in his business, but £1150 for an economy class flight direct is steep.
for gooners going, i would look to go via Moscow.
Then hotels £650pp for two nights in a shared room. Look at airbnb and you can get two nights accomodation in a large apartment near the sea for under £100 per night.
If I could get there for £500, I would go over and take my chances with a ticket if I can't get one through normal channels. But it isn't happening, so 12 pins it is then.
Add onto that, I nearly missed the UEFA cup final in 2000 because of his chartered plane being delayed, it kind of doesn't make me want to part with my dosh.
