Travelling through dark time zones

Question:
An individual is travelling from NY at 1 am arriving in Hong Kong on Monday Morning. Whilst travelling it is night all the way through. When does one on tefilin and daven shacharis?

Many thanks.

Answer:

If it in fact remains completely dark throughout the flight, this would be considered a continuation of the night he left in NY. As such he would not daven Shachris or Mincha of Sunday. If however it does get light at some point he would then daven and put on tefillin.
