The most expensive airline ticket in the world belong to the flight ticket of the Airbus A380. Some people know that Airbus A380, a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European corporation airbus, as subsidiary of EADS. It is the largest passenger airliner in the world.
Due to its size, many airports had to modify and improve facilities to accommodate it. Designed to challenge Boeing’s monopoly in the large-aircraft market, the A380 made its maiden flight on April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007.
The new Airbus was initially offered in two models: the A380-800 original configuration which can carries 555 passengers in a three-class configuration or 853 passenger in a single-class economy configuration. This features cost about $200,000-ish.

Back in 2007, the Airbus A380 set $100,380 for ticket flight. It was considered as the most expensive airline ticket in the world. However, this cost is equal to the services of the airplane itself. An Australian man was served with full services back in 2007.
According to some reports, he was treated to a special dinner and a trip to France to see the airline take delivery for the A380 Airbus. He added only $96,989,00 to enjoy this. A portion of this most expensive airline ticket was donated to a variety of charities.
