I feel that there must not be resynchronization on any natural schedule for aviation industry personnel like the flight crew members. This is because there can be issues like health problems developing with sudden or regular changes made in flight schedules. The adjustment to local time can become inconvenient for some passengers. This can happen when some passengers might not have got adjusted to the local time because of just wanting to visit a local place and then returning to the original place.
