"Longest flight ever but we had a great time," Britney Tweeted early Thursday. "Really cool plane and the V staff took great care of us. So excited to be here!"
According to People, the pop star was then whisked away on another flight across Australia to Perth, where she will begin her first of 15 concerts on Friday. Tickets are going for up to $1,360 for her shows.
The Aussie crew for her "Circus" tour reportedly consists of 225 crewmembers, 45 band members and dancers, and 15 circus performers – plus 150 local workers that are hired in each city that the show plays.
Before leaving for Australia, Brit caused a small controversy when she was photographed at LAX airport drinking a Big Gulp while walking past the airport security checkpoint – something most travelers are never permitted to do.
