    When I was a kid, I had a great globe, and one of the things I thought would be fun to do is to visit Easter Island at Christmas and Christmas Island at Easter. In the same year.

    I've decided 2014 is the year.

    I don't really have firmer plans than that, yet, but for Easter Island it seems arriving the day before Christmas Eve and departing the day after Boxing Day would be a good place to start.

    I know it's a long lead time, but wanted to give y'all some time to think about it.

    Flights are available on LAN (LA) to IPC, Easter Island's airport. Flights go to SCL (Santiago, Chile) or PPT (Papeete, Tahiti, generally 1x/week). This is the most remote commercial airport in the world.
     
  4. l hope you have a 1st class ticket, because that is one long flight., and as you can see multiple connections are involved, personally l would research a South Pacific Cruise that visits Easter Island.

    Actually, we did that instead. Went in January. I'd forgotten that I hadn't deleted this thread.
