The unusual case of the flight that took off on January 1, 2022 and landed on December 31, 2021

Passengers on a commercial flight that covered the Beijing-Los Angeles route began their journey on January 1, 2022 and arrived at their destination on December 31, 2021.

This seems to be a “mistake” or a trip back in time. However, here it is not about any fiction film or series. It is a phenomenon that occurs for the following reasons.

  • The direction of rotation of the Earth and the way in which schedules are assigned to the planet.
  • It happens to every flight that crosses the international date line, which is located between the coast of Asia and the west coast of the US.

In this way, every time a person travels from America to Asia via the Pacific Ocean, must be one day early, but if you cross the international line from Asia in the direction of America, the date must be delayed one day.

Air China Commercial Flight # CA625 took off from Beijing on January 1, 2022 and landed on December 31, 2021 in Los Angeles, USA.
