Freaky. So in fact an airline should really store a local time of
departure, plus a duration of the flight, and reserve judgement about
what the local time might be on arrival until... well... the plane
arrives. Now I understand why all the information Expedia's giving me
about my flight to Baltimore in December is labelled "provisional" :)
