I'm actually shocked it ended that low. Anyone remember that English bloke that paid something like 100k GBP in a similar auction for a pair of 1st class tickets on the first A380 flight?

I think some of you have been hanging out with the Wall Street protesters! This flight IS for charity. Besides, what is the difference between $31,000, $3,100 or $310? Let people do what they want with their money.

>>All proceeds of both auctions will be donated to two charitable non-governmental organizations, OISCA-International and Conservation International Japan (http://www.conservation.org), to support their environmental conservation activities.
The organizations have been chosen to mark the environmental credentials of the new eco-friendly Boeing 787.

You're right that people should do what they want with their money, but in these hard economic times, it would be better to fill a hungry child's stomach than donate to some of these enviromental organizations who seem to care more about their names in the spotlight. Kind of like Al Gore and his 1960's era gas guzzling, smoke belching Gulfstream 2!!!
