This Hawaiian Airlines Flight Took Off in 2018 and Landed in 2017

Hawaiian Airlines plane flies back in time to allow passengers celebrate new year twice

Because of an unexpected delay, a Hawaiian Airlines flight took off in 2018 and landed in 2017. Surprised? Don't be - it's neither a curious case of time travel nor the famed time-turner at play.

However, an unexpected 10-minute delay meant that it took off at 12:05 a.m. on January 1, 2018.

The Hawaiian Airlines flight HA 446 was scheduled to take off from Auckland, New Zealand to Honolulu, Hawaii at 11:55 pm on December 31st.

As a result, passengers onboard the Hawaiian Airlines flight experienced the time travel effect and the chance to ring in the new year twice. This means that people traveling from Auckland to Honolulu can actually travel back in time. Six other flights from Taipei took off in 2018 and landed in 2017 when they arrived in North America.

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

Therefore, the passengers onboard the Airbus A330 got to enjoy their New Year twice - simply by flying to a different country. So, it actually left at 12:05 am on January 1, 2018. There was a delay of ten minutes which led to the flight taking off five minutes after the new year had started.
