Nearly missed my flight because of this! Didn't realize that Henderson, Kentucky is on a different time zone than Louisville, Kentucky!

I do not agree that giving me an ETA in local time at my destination is either difficult or undesirable. Most of the time, especially when I use the "later" feature I need to be at my destination at a certain local time. Most of the time this is to catch a plane or meet someone.
There is not a place on this planet that Google won't tell me what it's time zone and current (or any other) time is. This is what we always called a SMOP (Small Matter of Programming). Most programming languages provide this time service. Airline tracking software handles it for flights in real time.
Just saying!

Please post a screenshot showing the wrong time ETA.

This has been discussed before with Waze and it would seem that this would be exceedingly difficult to do due to the non-linear nature of time zones and uncertainty about whether a particular country, state/province, county, or city subscribes to the use of daylight saving time. Crossing one time zone to another may not actually change time, or sometimes it does. I'm not sure there's a mathematical formula available like there is for dawn/dusk calculation.
