Cheapest You Ever Paid for a First/Business Class Flight?

We had some fun with this one: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trave...id-flight.html

So i thought this might be a fun question too. Outright prices only to keep it interest, no coach + stickers/SWUs/whatever

For me, $159 for a RDU-JFK flight on Delta. It'll be in May. First on a CR9 isn't much to talk about, but as the coach fare was $110, this was a no brainer.

The one I remember the most.... was the US to New Zealand error on United Airlines several years ago.

They forgot a zero on the fare that was filed and we got business class tickets for $1250. In addition, I upgraded it to First Class with an SWU.

Still remember getting to the LAX First Class Lounge and being told that those "flyertalkers" drank all the alcohol from the night before!

I paid $2500 for RT business class MSP to Osaka about 10 years ago on NWA. Normally it was quite a bit higher but they had a special going - buy through their vacations arm and have minimum 2 nights hotel.

Excluding randomly upgraded Y tickets, I suppose it was when I availed myself to one of the great ex-CMB deals: ~$1700 CMB-DOH-JNB/CPT-(JNB)-DOH-CMB

When EC kicked off service in 2009, I scored 2x C tix for $1,800 (JFK-ORY), thanks to an FT promo. Nothing like a random weekend in Paris for no apparent reason.

Ah yes, I remember this deal quite well. April 2009, two F tickets on QF (A380) out and BA (747) back to SYD for the princely sum of £6,000. I have yet to match that deal.
