How does Australiaâs time zones affect business travellers?.
What are your views on South Australia being (CST) 30mins behind Eastern States (EST)?
Does this make it confusing for: making appointments in different time zones, travel coordinators, making connecting flights, etc. ?
Could the advantage of _____(what is the advantage?)_____ of being 1/2hr behind, make it not that great of a deal to worry about?

I think there is not much difference - SA being 30 mins behind of most of the east coast cities. I think it is harder with the Perth time zone with 3 hours apart during summer.

The half hour is silly - should be 1hr or nothing.
More confusing is Queensland and Daylight Savings (or lack thereof).
Also confiusing are different start/end dates for daylight savings (eg. NZ starts a week earlier than Australian Eastern States)
That said with computerised calendars it is so much easier nowadays
