The Boston Red Sox flew to London in style for their upcoming series against the New York Yankees.
While baseball players might be used to chartered flights, the Red Sox took things to another level for their trip to London, flying aboard the Crystal Skye — a Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner wide-body jet from Crystal AirCruises.
According to The Action Network’s Darren Rovell, the flight cost the team $500,000, but taking a look around the interior, it’s easy to see why the trip is so expensive.
The plane features a full bar, as well as luxury seating for up to 88 passengers, and as videos from the flight show, the Red Sox had quite a good time during their trip across the pond.

In August 2017, Crystal AirCruises took delivery of a new Boeing 777-200LR jet christened the Crystal Skye.
The 777-200LR is powered by a pair of massive GE90 turbofan engines and is capable of flying nearly 9,500 miles nonstop.
Step inside and the 777’s ultra-functional interior has been transformed into a stylish luxury oasis.
