This happens to be another curious case of time travel. Passengers abroad flight No HAL446 of Hawaiian Airlines were given complimentary time travel experience. They got an opportunity to celebrate New Year twice.
At Auckland Airport, Flight No HAL446 was scheduled to depart at 11:55 PM and arrive at 9:45 PM in Honolulu on 31 December 2017. But because of some unavoidable circumstances, an approximate delay of 10 minutes lead it to depart at 12:05 AM on January 1, 2018, and arrive at 10:36 AM on December 31, 2017.

Sam Sweeney, a US Journalist got his eye on this and posted the same on twitter. And as expected the folks at Twitter trolled it as much as they could.

Even more impressive is NZ8 that I was on last night. We left NZ in 2017, flew into 2018 and flew back into 2017.

8. On The Serious Note…
That happens every time a plane crosses the current midnight line – think of it as the border between the kingdoms of 2017 and 2018 – in the wrong direction on New Year’s. In other words, it happens a lot. Still seems to surprise a lot of people every year.

What was a normal technical delay for an airlines HAL 446 turned out time travel for its passengers and a topic of fun for folks on Twitter? Some shared facts, others trolled, a few other used sarcasm but everyone enjoyed in the end.
