I had an aircraft due for delivery June 2, and it was May 23... but when I came back about 20 minutes later, it had been delivered?

"days" in ae range from 5-30 minutes depending on which world you are playing in. a "month" in ae are 24 of these days. if you ordered an aircraft on may 23 in an S4 world (short, 5 minute days), it would take 20 minutes to reach June 2.

maybe because it makes the real-life days + game years correspond nicely?

 

5 min/day => 1 real-life day = 1440 real-life minutes becomes 288 days = 12 game months = 1 game year

15 min/day => 1 real-life day = 1440 real-life minutes becomes 96 days = 4 game months = 1/3 game year, so 3 RL days/game yr

20 min/day => 1 real-life day = 1440 real-life minutes becomes 72 days = 3 game months = 1/4 game year, so 4 RL days/game yr

30 min/day => 1 real-life day = 1440 real-life minutes becomes 48 days = 2 game months = 1/6 game year, so 6 RL days/game yr

AE Classic back in 2004 or so ran at 1 day an hour. Therefore it was 1 month per real life day. This is probably where it came from.
