I am not quite sure on which day I arrive...oh my.

I've never been one to excel in questions like: If you have 7 people and two rowboats and the red one only holds 3 people... well you know that sort of question...

Well I leave Boston, US on Wednesday, Nov 21st at 7:30AM. My flight + change over time at airports is 27 hours. Looking at my itinerary it appears to say that I arrive on the same day (Wednesday) at 11:30 PM in Cebu.

It's given me a headache but it seems to me that actually, contrary to my initerary I really arrive at 11:30 PM on the 22nd which is Thursday night.

Therefore my first hotel night needs to be booked for the 22nd, not the 21st.

Will someone who enjoys such questions please confirm this for me?

There are 10 birds on a tree. You open fire at the birds and one bird fall down. How many birds are there left on the tree?

The itinerary should have state the date you are arriving.

No?

Post your flight numbers maybe we can help you decipher.

To arrive on the same day at 11:30PM is quite impossible as there is a 13 hour timezone difference. So a 0730AM departure will already be 8:30 PM in PH.

At the very least you should have a change of 1 day.

The date and time you will arrive in the Philippines would be stated on the ticket as the time would be displayed in the time being followed by the concerned airport. If your ticket/itinerary says that you will arrive on a Wednesday then book your hotel on a Wednesday.

Mouse, there are no birds left in the tree. The sound of the shot scared the rest of them away!

Uh now what day did the birds leave....uh fall?

I've my electronic ticket right in front of me. Under "Wed, Nov 21" it tells all flight segments. At the bottom it simply says: Arrive 11:10PM. There is no date change. But I'm inclined to agree with Sporklover that to arrive on the 21st is impossible, therefore it must be Thursday. It does seem odd that there is no date when the date has shifted to the next day.

The flight # is Korean Air 631, I'll call them but they are not yet open.

That looks like a second leg. KE 631 flies from ICN to CEB. That will certainly be a Same day departure/arrival unless flying on a red eye.

What flight/day are you departing US/Boston?
