y flight to celebrate the new year twice, for $184,000

 

It’s that time of the year again as most of us swill cheap champagne from plastic glasses, and the ultra-rich aboard the world’s fastest long-range private jet, so they can ring in the New Year two times.

For a measly $184,500, you and 17 of your nearest and dearest fly “back in time” from Sydney, Australia, to Los Angeles as you will be treated to wine, champagne, and great food (there is also a bed on PrivateFly, the G650ER, reports CNN.

Given the 19-hour time difference between the two cities and a 12-hour flight, partygoers who take off from Sydney at 2am on new year’s day will be arriving in LA at 7 pm on New Year’s Eve.

“It is the closest we can ever get to travel in time,” reports Travel Pulse, which explains why a maximum of 18 passengers fork over $10,250 each to make the trip.

The price tag could also explain why no one has ever booked the flight, PrivateFly also offered last year, but the company’s marketing director is still in the possession of hope.

“A lot of people booking private aviation not to think ahead, so it wouldn’t surprise me that we are booking flights to New Year’s Eve,” she says.

The same “time travel” is technically possible on a cheaper commercial flight of 14 hours, but no airlines to offer flights at the times necessary to complete the ring in 2017 two times.

That said, News.com.au notes you can replay New Year’s Eve by making the short drive north-west of Badajoz, Spain, Elvas, Portugal, or Karesuvanto, Finland, Karesuando, Sweden, to obtain an hour.
