Passengers on this flight got to experience the New Year-moment twice

The the eight-hour flight landed in Honolulu at 10:16 am on December 31st 2017.

The idea of time travel is not far-fetched after all. But a ten-minute delay in departure meant the flight finally took off on 1st January 2018. On New Year's Eve, however, when Hawaiian Airlines flight HA446 from Auckland to Honolulu was delayed 10 minutes until 12:05 a.m., January 1, it ensured that the plane's passengers would be celebrating New Year's Eve 2017 twice thanks to the 23-hour time difference between the arrival and destination airport.

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". On the globe, Auckland is ahead of Honolulu by 23 hours. The International Date Line zig-zags from the North Pole to the South Pole through the sparsely populated Pacific Ocean.

The flight crossed the global date line, causing the alleged time travel.

However, it was revealed later that the flight was delayed for 10 minutes. The post has since been shared over 14,000 times.

Twitter celebrated the flight with memes on Sunday night. You would if you flew from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere like 2018's first viral flight of the year. In other words, it happens a lot.
