New Years Flights Across Date Line

Wed Jan 02, 2013 3:20 am

I was thinking of trying to celebrate next new years twice next year by taking a flight from Asia to Hawaii or West Coast. Ideally the departure would need to be around 3 or 4 am because of check-in etc. I looked for flights (bewteen any city paris) and could not find anything. Does anyone know of any flights that would allow something like this to happen? Only flight I could find was UA from GUM to HNL. Any other ideas?

Last year I had a double new years, a DL flight from HND to LAX, left after midnight (spent acutal new years in HND airport)
then had second new years at home in LA.

This flight still operates, I did LAX to HND going over to SIN just a couple of weeks ago, but missed a double new years again by 8 hours by taking the DL NRT-LAX flight that leaves in the afternoon instead of the after midnight flight.

I noticed the HND flight, thanks for mentioning. Hoping to find a flight to spend midnight at some signifcant location although most agree by being on this website an aiport is not that bad.
