Schedule Changes In PHX For Daylight Savings
Posted: Thu Mar 31, 2011 12:31 am
How (if at all) do US and WN adjust the schedules of their PHX hubs when the rest of the country goes on daylight savings? Most of the differences related to "different" observances of daylight savings are on long-ish international flights, so it's not too difficult; carriers who are flying from a hub to South America or Europe just leave the hub arrival and departure alone and adjust the arrival and departure times overseas. It seems like it might be harder in PHX, where there are larger networks of relatively short flights; for half of the year, the 7:30 departure from DAL that gets in at 7:45 easily permits a passenger to get to a 9:00 meeting, while the 7:30 departure from DAL that gets in at 8:45 the other half of the year doesn't. Do US and WN adjust schedules when PHX falls an hour behind the rest of the country?
