tyto2820 - For suggesting the feature "time of a city"

E_OatBot is inspired from another bot called mama_pendse which i used long back. I really liked the idea of such a bot but i did not know the internal working of mama_pendse bot. I developed E_OatBot to get over my curiosity of how these bot works and also because mama_pendse bot was not working anymore. E_OatBot borrows some ideas from mama_pendse and other bots but its implementation is completely my own work.

Flight Information
Usage FlightInfo <Airline Code> <Flight number> [Departure date]
Remarks Airline Code is 2 letter IATA assigned airline code

Departure date is optional. Its format should be YYYYMMDD e.g. 20040502 would mean 2nd May, 2004. Valid values for departure date can *only* be plus/minus one day from today's date. So if today's date is 25th May 2004 then departure date can be either 24th May 2004, 25th May 2004 or 26th May 2004. If no value is given for departure date, then current date is used by default.
