The act of "preponing" appears to be a uniquely Indian phenomenon. It involves rescheduling a flight, activity, or what-have-you, for an earlier time… often with little or no advance notice.  It is the opposite of “postponing”. 

In the case of the upcoming trip to India, we were scheduled to fly from Darjeeling (Bagdogra) to Varanasi by way of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose (Kolkata) International Airport… until our connecting flight was preponed.   Now, our connecting flight takes off from Chandra Bose even before we've lifted off from Bagdogra!  AARGH!  No other flights are available to get us where we need to go.  

The good news is that Leslie -- Goddess of Organization and Logistics --  was notified by the airline about the preponement ahead of time, so we can make alternative arrangements. ... and by "we", I mean "Leslie".
