Money to burn with Air Canada. $10000 domestic ticket.


I was just booking a flight this evening from CYDF to CYUL. I was able to do this for about $350.00 tax incl. with no connections. 2 hour flight each was.

Just scrolled down at my other choices. Air Canada offered to fly me executive class for close to $10000 with a crazy six hour overnight lay over. Avg. flight time 17 hrs.

And executive 2 of the three legs each way.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm… which flight to choose. Can anyone find anything similar to this!

my apologizes for the cut and paste job from the Air Canada web page.

Money AND TIME to burn! Jeez! Any executive choosing such an option should be fired, or at best, demoted to the mailroom!


Amazing! And that’s just Deer Lake/Montreal and back.

Suppose you really put some miles on by going to the far northwest. How much would Deer Lake/Dawson Creek RT set you back? Exec class, of course.


I guess it was about 8 years ago now, but I was looking for a flight to get my grandmother to my aunts, she would be going from Jamestown, ND to SFO. Because I was in the Twin Cities, she didnt mind either driving down to the Cities and staying a day or two with us, but she preferred to fly out of JMS or FAR.

Northwest had a pretty good deal for $310 or so going FAR-MSP-SFO.

Another option was FAR-MSP-ORD-MSP-DLH-MSP-SFO for $800 or so.

In the past year when I have checked NWA or CO from MSP to SAN it never seems to fail to have an option connecting me through EWR come up.


ouch… :confused:
