  1. a). Time difference/Time in Abu Dhabi
          South Africa +2
         Abu Dhabi +4
        = 2 hours
       12:00 (+) 2 hours
        = 14:00
    22:00 – 8 hours flying time
    = 14:00

    b). Arrival time in Abu Dhabi Transit/layover time: 22:00 5 hours
         Departure from Abu Dhabi International Airport: 22:00 (+) 5 hours = 03:00
    c). Time difference:
          Abu Dhabi +4
         Germany +1
         = 3 hours

    Time in Berlin:
    03:00 (-) 3 hours
    = 00:00

    Flying time:
    00:00 (+) 7 hours
    = 07:00
  2. 8 hours + 5 hours + 7 hours = 20 hours
     20 hours
