Clearly I am bored, as this crossed my mind today....

Has anyone here ever seen the new year in on a plane?

What was it like. Did you make the most of the free booze? How was the atmosphere? Was it boring or fun?

And how does it work if you are crossing a few time zones?

I wish I was on a plane now on my way to somewehre nice.

Happy New Year everyone.

Apparently, at the time of the Big new year for millenium, very rich people could pay to be on a plane that would fly first from one location to another, thereby enabling the privileged people on the plane to experience New Year's over and over.

no i never spent new years in the air, but i've already spent my birthday in a plane and i can tell you it was just geat.
at midnight my friends started to sing a birthday song for me and the whole passengers joined in. this was one of my best birthday experiences i ever had. so i just could imagine that spending the new year in a plane would be even more exciting. ciao

Not New Year - but we are hoping to fly to Oz/NZ this year over Christmas and l wanna do the flight on Xmas day - not a huge fan of the festive season therefore spending it on a plane sounds cool and hopefully lots more seat availability!!
