Man, that is a ridiculous amount. So, every person who goes to Europe (or other places) and gets injured badly, needs to get one of these special flights ?

Seems crazy. I bet most people stay where they are, get medical treatment there, and then fly home regular when they are well enough to fly.

Sounds crazy but people were obviously willing to chip in, I did! The guy is a treasure!

I'm guessing that most people have travel insurance or less serious injuries? I'm sure you're aware that after surgery like that blood clots are a major concern and air travel is generally a big no no so I wonder what kind of equipment and personnel they need for a flight like that. I'm betting that's the majority of the costs.

Maybe just figure what an ambulance ride that many miles on a road would be and then multiply that a few times. The plane has to charge for the return trip as well. At his age he will be laid up for a long time when he gets home. Sadly this is probably the end of his world travels.
