we can't figure this out, because time zones are a bitch

if a plane, flying from NZ too the UK, arrives in the UK 7am Wednesday morning what time does it leave NZ(nz time and uk time please)? Baring in mind that the flight takes 24 hours, and their time zone is 12 hours ahead.

A friend of mine is coming back after being there for 2 years and im trying to figure out if he has left yet or not because i forgot to ask what time he was leaving. When he flew out to NZ he said something about the 12 hours disappearing. The flight took 24 hours but he arrived at NZ exactly 24 hours later, so the 12 hour time zone difference just vanished.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

And it's...7PM NZ time Monday (2000 hours). Assuming no time change, the plane would leave on 7am Tuesday. Then subtract twelve hours to get 7pm Monday.

Ok. If it arrives 7am UK time Wednesday, then it left 7am UK time Tuesday, which is 7 PM NZ time Monday. Since it is not even 8 PM here in California yet, the answer to your question is no.
