Etihad Airways Timetable Question

Sat Dec 10, 2005 1:25 pm

I was browsing through the Etihad timetable and noticed something peculiar. EY701 leaves Abu Dhabi at 9:00am and arrives in Bahrain at 9:05am local time. The flying time is listed as 1:50. Is there some odd time zones in the middle east, how can that be? Same thing on the return flight, EY702. The distance between the 2 airports is listed as 244nm. Isn't 1:50 a little long to travel 244nm, even considering airlines build time into the timetables for traffic and such. Any insight would be appreciated.

Widebodies flown on:A330-300,A340-300,A380-800,747-400,767-200ER,767-300ER,777-200A,777-200ER,777-200LR,777-300ER,787-9

There's an hour difference between the UAE (GMT +4) and other Gulf states like Bahrain and Qatar (GMT +3)
