Fans of the “Back to the Future” trilogy will love this. Hawaiian Airlines flight 446 departed from Auckland in New Zealand at 12:05 a.m. on Monday, January 1, 2018 and ended up landing in Honolulu, Hawaii at 10:15 a.m. on December 31, 2017. This gave passengers and flight crew the opportunity to celebrate the New Year not once, but twice.

‘Time travelers’ ring in 2018 twice

The Sacramento Bee quotes Flightview as saying the Hawaiian Airlines flight was originally set to leave Auckland at 11:55 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, but was delayed by 10 minutes, meaning it left shortly after New Zealand rang in the New Year.

The flight ended up literally going back in time, flying for 9 hours and 10 minutes before arriving at its destination. The plane landed in Honolulu at 10:15 a.m. Hawaii time, on the morning of December 31, 2017, giving everyone on board the opportunity to celebrate once again, without being stuck in their seat on the plane.

As reported by SFGate, many Twitter users exclaimed over the phenomenon, pointing out that Time Travel is indeed possible. However according to the Sacramento Bee, this is nothing new. They quote Flightradar24 as saying six flights departed from Taipei early in 2018 and were scheduled to arrive in Canada and the United States in 2017.

As noted by Twitter user Eric Redman, a United Airlines flight from Houston to Santiago also saw in two New Year mornings. It was scheduled to leave at 9:50 p.m. on December 31, but ended up departing at 12:40 a.m. on January 1, arriving on December 31 in its destination.
