Missed your Germanwings flight departure from London Heathrow or Stansted?

Do you trust your airline when checking your flight departure? If they have no idea of "local time" and concept of time zones, be careful or you can miss your flight! I just wonder how many passengers of Germanwings airline flying from UK are going to find that their flight has just gone... according to schedule.... errrr... what schedule? They publish departures times in "their" time zone, not the local one. It is weird, but... well... it is Germanwings. You've been warned.

 Germanwings airline website:
London Heathrow airport website:

Ps - I spent some creative time working with time zones code. It is definitely not an easy thing even if it seems to be quite obvious.
Ps 2 - Germanwings has no email, only premium phone numbers. No way to report them a bug, sorry Germanwings passengers.
Ps 3 - It is not like intermittent - after 2 weeks, they are still proud to have this silly bug.
Ps 4 - It looks like Germanwings... well... I hope they are never going to fly from New York or Dubai.
