This week marks the very first time in history that a beer pong tournament was played onboard an International First Class flight. And we have the pictures to prove it.


Some friend who had the ENTIRE first class cabin on an Air China 777ER in the Forbidden Pavilion First Class cabin from Houston to Beijing decided to step up their drinking game a notch. On the 15 hour 7,200 mile flight, they decided to jam out on their blue tooth speakers and partake in a game of good old American Beer Pong.

You can see for yourself in the cropped picture below.


Scenes from the Air China Forbidden Pavilion 777ER from Houston to Beijing. Outfitted in Shanghai Tang pajamas we have the first ever in history documented case of beer pong on a commercial flight. Jamming out to Weezer on a bluetooth speaker. This is what happens when you have an entire international first class cabin to yourself on a 7,200 mile 15 hour flight.

This takes happy hour in the sky to a whole new level.

Does this beat any happy hour in the sky you’ve seen? If not, tell us your story in the comments on how you can beat this one.

  1. Sounds like someone is bitter at the Greek community. But don’t worry, we take it in stride.

    Sorry your college experience wasn’t as much fun as ours

  2. Bummer just flew the route yesterday. Sadly booked 5/8. Could’t have pulled it off. But it is a great cabin and solid service.

  3. Woofly – if by 5 of 8 first seats were booked, that was likely the same flight. There were 5 of them in the cabin and they had it all to themselves. So you may have flown the first beer pong flight ever after all.
