About 70% of the words I write on an average day at work are some
variant of this paragraph.

Here's a bug report I sent to an airline recently.

"I think it's unlikely that EWR-BDA (Newark -> Bermuda) is 3:10 and
BDA-EWR is 1:35. I think it's more likely to be 2:10 and 2:35,
resepectively, and the PSS [passenger servicing system] isn't picking up
on the time zone change between airports."

This had enough information to verify that it was indeed a bug (and only
on the passenger-facing side), and if you look up the same flights now,
you'll see they've fixed it already.
