If you are still planning to attend the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies in first person, you'll probably want to think again since the only seating remaining is priced at £2,012 ($3,160) for the AA class and £1,600 ($2,510) for the A class.
Considering that going alone may not be the most enjoyable, one will probably have to take a friend, spouse, or sibling along which in return would double the price to $6,320 for the AA class and $5,020 for the A class. Right, figures look less attractive now.
