Diners Club offers (or at least offered) a flight in a Mig-29 for the highest end point range. I never figured out if the flight to Russia to get into the Mig was included...

2 Million? 2 Million 500 thousand maybe? I've got an older D.C. book at home I think, I'll have to look it up to be certain.
