I did a search and no success. I want to know if anyone else besides me has flown and missed a whole day.For example, I have actually done this I flew from YVR-SYD on Air Canada and when I flew I left at 7pm on the 1st of July ( Got Biz due to knowing the ticket agent well) and arrived in at SYD at around 7 in the morning on the 3rd of July. I thought it was pretty cool that I missed a whole entire day. But not as exciting as when I left. I left on my birthday(July 17) and when we transferred in HNL we went back to the 16th of July and when I arrived in YVR it was my birthday again. Now that I found cool.
Anyone else has an experience like this please tell?

I lost a track if the day when I flew to France. I was wondering why the authorities at Versailles? spelling, where puzzled when I tried to get into the palace for free being under eighteen. It was the day of my birthday. After the red eye I thought it was the 28th nope it was definitely the 29th of Dec.

I once flew on United Airlines from San Francisco to Hong Kong and skipped a day.
Another time I flew from Hong Kong over Tokyo Narita to Honolulu. I departed Hong Kong in the morning of the 3rd of July 2001 and flew overnight on the Narita - Honolulu length, where we landed on the morning of the 3rd of July.

This is sort of the opposite of what you're asking, but I once got a "double birthday." Woke up in FUK on my birthday, flew to NGO and on to PDX. Watched the sun set, then rise again...still my birthday! Arrived at JFK that evening, in time to celebrate with my family.
This pretty much always happens on eastbound transpacific flights. Sometimes it is even possible to arrive the evening before you left (local time in each place, of course...we haven't quite perfected the whole time travel thing yet!).

Last time I did it was in December 17-19. We didn't skip the 18th but we only had a couple hours on that day (since we had a refueling stop in HNL in our LAX-MNL flight) and then continued onto the 19th once crossing the International Date Line. Leaving MNL in January 1st at 10:00PM, we arrived at the same day at around 5:30PM.

Los Angeles to Nadi, Fiji on Air Pacific, departed late in the evening and arrived 2 days later in the morning. And last year, I was operating Anchorage-Incheon the day before my birthday, crossing the date line a few hours into the flight. A 12 hour layover in Korea before returning the evening of my birthday, arriving in Anchorage the morning of my birthday again. Pretty bizarre.
