I don't see why durations would change. Presumably the airlines will just
run the flights on their old timings in UTC terms, meaning they arrive and
depart Fiji one hour later on the clocks, but at the same real time.

Yes, they have to tell their passengers, but they do that for all kinds of
reasons anyway.

(I'm still annoyed that Cathay Pacific have a daily flight - that is,
scheduled every day until at least next May - that cancelled *on 10th
November only*. Guess which date I was booked to take that flight.)
