Ottawa is on Eastern Standard Time and Winnipeg is on Central Standard Time, John inquired
at the Ottawa airport about a plane to Winnipeg.
“The next flight leaves at 1:00 p.m.,” the ticket agent said, “and arrives in Winnipeg at 1:01 p.m.”

The agent did so and then inquired, “Do you want a reservation?”
“No”, said John. “I think I'll just hang around and watch that thing take off.”
