1st class airfares....

The price for first class tickets to Europe is amazing. Business class is ridiculously expensive too, but you can often find discounts (currently about 50-70% off.

I just scored some 1st class tickets frequent flyer tickets for a honeymoon in the south of France next fall..... When I checked, the published roundtrip airfare was about $12,500 each in first, $8750 in business, and $850 in coach.... Interesting that there was much less spread in the required points: 50k in coach, 80/90k in business, and 100k in first (but first class is very hard to get).

I have been bumped up to first class twice on transatlantic trips. It was very pleasant and the luxuries made the trip far less stressful. But no way was it worth $12,500. Everybody arrives at the same place at the same time.
