How to fly to both Taylor Swift’s concert and the Super Bowl

Ever since the Kansas City Chiefs secured their spot in the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, there has been speculation about whether Taylor Swift, a frequent attendee of Chiefs games, would be able to attend the game to support star player Travis Kelce. However, Swift has a concert in Tokyo the night before the Super Bowl, making it seem unlikely that she would be able to make it to the game. But with the right planning, it is actually very possible to attend both events.

Swift’s concert in Tokyo is scheduled for 6 p.m. local time on Saturday, Feb. 10. Taking into account the time difference, that would be 1 a.m. in Las Vegas on the same day, as Tokyo is 17 hours ahead of the Pacific time zone. The Super Bowl kicks off at 3:30 p.m. PST the next day on Sunday, Feb. 11.

To fly from Tokyo to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl, there are several flight options available. One option is to depart from Haneda Airport (HND) in Tokyo at 1:05 p.m. local time on Sunday, Feb. 11, the day after the concert, aboard American Airlines. The flight would cross the International Dateline, and you would arrive at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at 6 a.m. PST on the same day. From there, you would have a two-hour layover before a short, 78-minute flight to Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas. You would touch down at 9:18 a.m. PST, six hours before the Super Bowl begins. An economy ticket for this itinerary would cost $721 one-way.

Alternatively, you could book the same Tokyo-to-Vegas itinerary on American Airlines for 35,000 AAdvantage miles one-way in economy. For just 10,000 more miles (45,000 total), you could fly premium economy, which offers more spacious seats and potentially better food and amenities at a lower cost than business class.

United Airlines also offers options for getting from Tokyo to Vegas in time for the Super Bowl. For example, you could depart from Tokyo’s Narita Airport (NRT) at 5:55 p.m. local time on Sunday and arrive in LA at 10:50 a.m. PST. After a two-hour layover, you would arrive in Vegas at 2:12 p.m., just 78 minutes before kickoff. A coach ticket for this itinerary would cost $649 or 55,000 Mileage Plus miles.

It is important to note that attending both the concert and the Super Bowl may come with significant expenses. However, strictly considering air travel, it is absolutely possible to make it to both events without the need for a private plane or time-traveling capabilities.
