Instead of moving forward in time, this flight went back in time.
But the flight took people back in time, and by the time they arrived at Honolulu, Hawaii, they were back in 2017 with the flight time pegged at 10:15 a.m. HST on December 31.
The idea of time travel is not far-fetched after all.
The flight took off just after midnight from Auckland on January 1 before landing in Hawaii in the morning of December 31.
In what science-fiction fans might enthusiastically call time-travel, the passengers aboard a Hawaiian Airlines flight bid goodbye to 2017 twice, thanks to the time-zone differences.
Powerball jackpot hits $440M for Wednesday's drawing
Lottery fever is raging across the country with big money up for grabs in the next Mega Millions and Powerball drawings. Mega Millions made a chance in October, giving you more numbers to choose from and making it harder to hit the jackpot.
Honolulu is 23 hours behind Auckland, thanks to the mid-Pacific location of the worldwide date line. But because of the minor delay, the passengers got to ring in the new year one extra time.
The Journalist took to his twitter handle and said, "Because of an unexpected delay, Hawaiian Airlines flight 446 took off in 2018 and will land in 2017".
Of course, there were a few time travelling jokes. The incident took place because of the presence of International Date Line that the flight crossed while flying towards its destination.
New Zealand is technically only a distance of eight hours by flight to the Hawaiian islands.
