How much did Duke pay for charter flights to China and Dubai?

Quote:
The most expensive part of Duke's 13-day tour of China and Dubai this month isn't the five-star hotels, the multi-course meals or the exotic sight-seeing trips.

None of those even compare to the eye-popping price of the Boeing-767 jet the Blue Devils chartered from Anthony Travel to shuttle their traveling party of players, staff and dozens of alumni between Durham, Beijing, Shanghai and Dubai.

A Duke spokesman said Wednesday he could not reveal the total cost of the charter flights, but the president of a flight chartering company unaffiliated with the Blue Devils agreed to give an estimate. Air Charter Team president Jonathan Tasler calculated that the total cost of the charter flights was about $1.1 million, a figure that jibes with a $1.3 million estimate an airline executive provided CNBC's Darren Rovell on Tuesday
