Person 2: “No, it’s actually a three hour change for California.

  1. I dunno, I’ve actually landed in California to an 8 hour time change. So doesn’t seem all that unreasonable. Granted I was departing from Frankfurt…

  2. I have a part time home based travel business and a call I got from a client the other night was very similar to this. I got the call at 9pm ET in Rhode Island from the client who lives in California.

    The client calls me to book their next cruise and after bookingsays, “My your up really late tonight working. What is it one/two in the morning there?” I said no its around 9pm or so. The client then said, “Oh, I though daylight savings time added 3 or 4 more hours to the time change.”

    I did not know what to say after that……
