If you were to fly these same flights tomorrow in Business Class, and return this weekend, they'd cost: 5,049.25 GBP for Jeremy's Singapore Airlines flight, and 5,768.19 GBP for James' Emirates tickets. In USD, that's just shy of $10,000 each roundtrip.
Strictly by the numbers, it looks as though James May will win this race, not only for arriving to Sydney a full half-hour earlier than Jeremy, but also in flying the more expensive ticket, on average. It's also of note that James is the one with a private pilot's license, and the wherewithal to tell whether or not his flights will land on time.
And, if you're wondering where Richard Hammond is in all this, the answer is "back in London." He won't be accompanying Jeremy and James to Sydney, and James even tweeted "A favour, please, everyone: no-one is to tell Hammond we're going to Australia without him."
To track Jeremy and James, we recommend the FlightRadar24 app, or simply Google the flight numbers for the latest on their updated arrival times. Go James!
