apskip:
Tahiti is in the same time zone as Hawaii, two hours behind the Pacific time zone and one hour ahead of where Tonga, Fiji and American Samoa lie. Any westward flight out past those 3 islands will cross the International Date Line and result in the immediate addition of one day to the clock.
 

georgiapeach:
So when they LEAVE there we need to add a day?

Dom:
if they head west, then yes :)

A traveler crossing the International Date Line eastbound subtracts one day, or 24 hours, so that the calendar date to the west of the line is repeated. Crossing the IDL westbound results in 24 hours being added, advancing the calendar date by one day.

So that furthers the Japan/NZ Leg 2 idea, lol.

So they will be in Japan/NZ on 16th November local time? I am a little confused here.
