Hawaiian Airlines Flight Takes Off In 2018, Lands In 2017

However, it's something new and very unique this time.

Ever feel like you're moving backwards in time?

Hawaiian Airlines's HA446 flight took off from the New Zealand capital, Auckland on New Year's Eve and landed in Honolulu the day before, as in the tropical island complex 2018 had not yet arrived. Sweeney took a screenshot of the flight's schedule at 10:05 a.m. on December 31, 2017, and uploaded it to Twitter, where awestruck Twitter users retweeted the post over 29,000 times.

One former cabin crew member stated: "I've actually done this in my hostie days.by the time I served up the aisle we were down the vegetarian option, in a different time zone and back a year!"

LG Preps an 88-Inch, 8K OLED TV for CES 2018
Even if you own an expensive 4K or UHD TV, the new display from LG puts it to shame as it has four times as many pixels. Of course, it will take a while before 8K televisions become a standard.

The flight, which travelled between Auckland, New Zealand and Honolulu, Hawaii, was scheduled to depart at 11.55 pm on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017.

New Zealand, meanwhile, is 13 hours ahead of UTC, due to the Summer season there.

In case anyone is wondering: no, time travel is still not feasible.

Not only did the passengers aboard this flight get to technically travel back in time, they also got to experience the last day of the year 2017 all over again. Time travel is not only feasible but it is already happening. The incident took place because of the presence of International Date Line that the flight crossed while flying towards its destination.
