You can score two midnight kisses this New Year's Eve by traveling back in time with Crystal AirCruises. The luxury airline is offering an exclusive package called the New Year Double Countdown Celebration that will send passengers across the International Date Line, allowing them to experience the stroke of the midnight on opposite sides of the world.
The New Year's Eve package includes a flight on the Crystal Skye Boeing 777-200LR, which is the world's largest charter jet with 88 lie-flat seats, from Tokyo to Las Vegas. Since Las Vegas is 16 hours behind Tokyo, passengers will be able to celebrate the new year in Tokyo and then fly to Las Vegas in time to ring in 2019 all over again. While on board, passengers can party it up in the spacious social lounge with a stand-up bar or save their energy for the strip and watch a show on their 24" in-flight entertainment system.
The package, which runs from December 29th to January 4th, includes hotel accommodations, entertainment and culinary experiences in addition to the flight. The trip starts off with a stay at the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba in Japan, where guests will enjoy a dinner party complete with Sumo wrestling and a fireworks display over Tokyo Disneyland.
Upon landing in Las Vegas, guests will attend the Celine Dion concert at Caesar's Palace and then head to Omnia Nightclub for a New Year's Eve after-party featuring Calvin Harris.
Time travel doesn't come cheap, though. This extravagant package will set party goers back $26,000 per person. If you're looking for New Years plans and happen to have an extra $26,000 laying around, purchase this package with a Chase Sapphire Reserve card and you'll earn 3x the points your travel, which -- if it codes as travel -- would come out to 78,000 points. According to TPG's current evaluations, those points would be worth $1,560.
