Passengers aboard United Airlines’ Boeing 777-300, on Saturday afternoon (12/31), experience a real and unimaginative journey through time: on their way to the United States, the group left Seoul, In South Korea in 2023 It will reach the destination in 2022.
At around 00:29 am on January 1, 2023, the passengers boarded at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport, bound for San Francisco, USA. The plane is expected to arrive at 5:01 PM on Saturday, December 31, 2022.
“Time travel” is caused by the International Date Line across the Pacific Ocean. When leaving the “time zone” in Asia for America, the aircraft enters a zone less than 23 hours in relation to the previous one, which “increases” as the aircraft continues on course.
At 2:43 p.m. on Saturday (Brasilia time), the plane has been in the air for 2 hours and 13 minutes and is well within the “time zone” of Asia—thus, still in the year 2023.
In a few hours, the Boeing will cross the so-called International Date Line, located at 180 degrees from the Greenwich meridian, and passengers will return to 2022. In total, the flight time is expected to be nine hours and 46 minutes.
