Why is there a difference in the time it takes an airplane to fly from NY to CA compared to CA to NY if it is going the same speed?

There is a difference of time becuase of the head-wind or tail-wind. If the plane is going with the wind, they will get there faster.

I don't know if this the right answer, but hopefully it helps!
