While not of the bargain basement variety, these fares offer in-flight amenities like fine wines, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres prepared by five-star chefs — and the in-flight entertainment system has more than 2,500 on-demand channels. And that's on top of 18-inch wide seats with 34 inches of seat pitch in economy. (Translation: They're comfortable.)

Business class passengers enjoy services like chauffeur service to and from the airport, among other perks.
