Group Flight: Sydney to SFO!

Hello Infinite Flight pilots, welcome to another long haul group flight! This time around we’ll embark on a 13hr journey across the pacific ocean with the mighty B777-300ER! Those GE90s will carry us the entire 6,000nm with no problem at all! Oh by the way, this route will in theory make you a time traveller… International date line flights are truly mind boggling.

Read more...

The International Date Line (IDL) is an imaginary line on Earth’s surface that’s roughly in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It is the point where the date changes by one day when crossing it. To the west of the IDL, the date is one day ahead of the date to the east of the line.

The IDL impacts eastbound flights in terms of time and date adjustments. When a flight crosses the IDL going eastward, the date moves back by one day. For example, if a flight departs from Tokyo on May 4th and crosses the IDL, the date for the travelers will become May 3rd. How does two birthdays in one year sound?

To summarise… Time zones busy being time zones.

IFATC will provide service where able, so remember to always be in contact with them if they are open. This includes centre and departure frequencies.

This sounds interesting and just on the weekend, but just my ticket I had bought it for Los Angeles on American Airlines and I can no longer refund and change my ticket because the system is saturated xd, although I will attend only for takeoff but I will have to follow the route that the captain tells me, see you there!!! ;)
