Wanna travel back in time? Turns out a flight delay works just fine for time travel.

Passengers aboard Hawaiian Airlines flight HAL446 travelled back in time on New Year’s Day. They got two opportunities to welcome 2018 and bid adieu to 2017.

The anomaly was noticed by US journalist Sam Sweeney and posted on Twitter.

The flight was scheduled to take off from Auckland at 11:55 PM on New Year’s Eve and land in Honolulu at 9:45 AM on the same day. An unexpected delay of 10 minutes occurred and the flight took off at 12:05 AM on 1 January, 2018 and landed at 10:16 AM on 31 December, 2017.

And of course, the post blew Twitter’s minds.

Scientists who are still trying to figure out ‘time travel’.

Why should just HA446 make all the hustle bustle?

That’s really crazy.

Who needs roads when we can fly through time?

There were some who were in their senses.

And this one wanted to tell the world.

Whatever be the reason, be it the delay in the flight or the International Date Line, Twitter had its share of fun!
