This Hawaiian Airlines flight did a time travel from 2018 to 2017

  • There's A Flight That Took Off In 2018 And Landed In 2017

The flight took off just after midnight from Auckland on January 1 before landing in Hawaii in the morning of December 31.

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

They rang in 2018 - then their flight took off back into 2017.

That this even happened was coincidental, since the flight was actually supposed to leave and reach in 2017 itself. But because it's on the other side of the International Date Line, New Zealand is 23 hours ahead of Hawaiian time. The incredible time traveling flight was pointed out by the flight tracking website Flightradar24's Twitter account.

The scheduling curiosity was pointed out online by ABC7 transportation reporter Sam Sweeney, who described it as "time travel". Well, at least it was for the passengers and flight crew aboard that flight!

Surprisingly, when it landed in Honolulu, 8 hours later, it was still December 31 2017.

Ha. I did that once flying back from Australia on New Years. But this serendipitous opportunity to countdown twice nearly didn't happen.

However, it was revealed later that the flight was delayed for 10 minutes.

As a result, the plane departed Auckland at 12:05 a.m. on January 1 and landed at 10:16 a.m. December 31 in Hawaii, giving the passengers plenty of time to gear up for New Year's 2017, round two.
