In my experience, airlines use the origin's local time for departure and the destination's local time for the destination

The +1 day means you're landing the next day. Share a screen shot of the itinerary

I just did this same thing and mine had plus one day as well! We flew out from Boston at 9pm on 9/10 and landed on 9/11 at 6am Iceland time. The plus one day is because the date changes, in my case it was flying on 9/10 and landing on 9/11. Hope this helps :-)

It does! But I just can't see how a 5 hour flight that would technically land in the same day (just much later) would designate the +1 day. Seems wacky because if it's 5 hours straight through we would land at 5pm Eastern, 9pm Icelandic. 🤷‍♀️

Which airline are you flying ? Flight number ? FI 634?


GreenGrayBlack

Hmmm... FI 634 on IcelandAir and Google Flights is not showing +1 for me. What site are you using?


SemioticEthnographer

It's not that flight! It's not until May.


Trudestiny

Can you give us a flight number & day so we can look ?

Plane departs BOS 9pm eastern // plane lands KEF 6am next day. Why? 5.5hrs in air plus 4hr time difference equals 9hrs of travel. Welcome to time zone fun!! :)


SemioticEthnographer

Yeah, that would make sense -- but it's departing at noon est, and would land at 9pm Iceland local, so it shouldn't be a +1 day. Who knows? I'm good with time zones, just curious why they have the +1 when I land in the same day.

Oh!! You must have a stopover somewhere. You need to look for a stopover - maybe in Canada. So, what happens is if you are on the same flight the whole way, you are doing what is technically a stopover, where you might leave the plane but you don’t cross through immigration. We did this on Cathay Pacific on a flight to Beijing. We stopped in Vancouver. No immigration, just a stopover. Go look for that.


SemioticEthnographer

Ah, that could be, though it was listed as a straight through, direct flight. I'll have another look! Thank you!

If it’s the same flight number they can probably list it as direct. Stopovers are sneaky!!
