At the beginning of the episode, when Ellie wakes Chuck up, she says the Awesomes took a redeye from Connecticut to surprise them. Airlines only operate redeyes, or overnight flights, flying west to east (i.e. from California to Connecticut) not the other way around. This is because of the time difference, gaining hours as you move into a western timezone. A flight from Boston to L.A. will take about six hours, but will arrive three hours after it left. In order for the Awesomes' flight to have arrived early (say 6AM) in the morning, it would have had to take off even earlier on the East Coast (say 3AM).
