Let's see who can solve it, I think it's pretty good

Quote: "
Professor Kirch was a physicist at a prominent university in Los Angeles, he was flying to a convention in Hawaii taking the brand new Concorde II, a mach 1.5 passenger jet. It was the planes first flight.
He boarded the plane at Los Angles International Airport, and took off for Honolulu International Airport, taking a direct route and making no additional stops. The flight went exactly as planned, getting there in record time.
On Arrival, the media asked Professor Kirsch how the flight was, to which he replied "That was the slowest flight of my life".
"


Why did the Professor reply in this way?
