Virgin America has sold a private, roundtrip flight for 136 people to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in 2013 for US$49,000 in a once-in-a-lifetime trip for technology fans.

For their money, the buyer receives a private flight on an Airbus A320 – christened #nerdbird – from San Francisco; three-day tickets for 136 guests to CES, including the January 7 Preshow Keynote and the January 8 Keynote addresses; free in-flight Wi-Fi; priority check-in and boarding on Virgin America flights for a year and the privilege to decorate the plane in any design for one month.

Besides the newest and coolest gadgets on the market, CES 2013 will host Chairman and CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated, Dr. Paul E. Jacobs; incoming President of Panasonic Corporation, Kazuhiro Tsuga; and the President and CEO of CEA, Gary Shapiro.

Sadly for those with big enough bank balances, the flight offer has already been snapped up by an unidentified buyer.
