Hawaiian Air Flight That Took off in 2018 Will Land in 2017

Hawaiian Air Flight That Took off in 2018 Will Land in 2017

By the time the flight arrived in Hawaii, it was 10:16 A.M. - meaning, they technically arrived about 14 hours before they departed, on New Year's Eve. The curious case of time travel occurred because the plane flew over the date line, and therefore back in time.

This oddity nearly didn't happen-the flight was scheduled to leave at 11:55 pm on Sunday, and took off ten minutes late.

The passengers of the flight and the users of Twitter were surprised to discover about the time-traveling flight and enjoyed the rare circumstances.

The Hawaiian Airlines Flight HA446 took off from Auckland, New Zealand, at 12.05am on January 1, 2018, and reached Honolulu, Hawaii, at 9.45am on December 31, 2017.

It's not so complicated and apparently very common.

A Hawaiian Airlines flight HAL446, which was flying from Auckland (New Zealand) to Honolulu, has been delayed for 10 minutes and something mindblowing happened. Out of hundreds on board, a journalist from Washington was the first one to notice the time difference.

A flight by Hawaiian Airlines did some serious time travelling this week.

It was joined by six other aircraft that brought their passengers to 2017, celebrating the New Year twice.
