Well, Google does a pretty good at reporting the current time in any major city in the world - including compensation for DST. Not sure why it would be a problem to do. Sure, it won't be 100%, but the data exists.

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 note in the attached screenshot where the ETA is according to departure time zone. Along the route, the time zone will move the clock one hour ahead, whereby the ETA will be an hour later... very serious flaw were the trip's destination and departure locations were reversed, like it was for me...
