This one is for Azaria and Hendekea - What were the actual flights and times you took from Vilnius to Dubrovnik? Were they:

TE460 0730 0905 Vilnius Amsterdam
LH4673 1040 1150 Amsterdam Frankfurt
OU419 1430 1615 Frankfurt Dubrovnik

If not, what was the route and flights and times?

Also, how far behind Nicolas and Donald did you finish at the pitstop above Dubrovnik?

Can't help with the flights but they have given three interviews saying ten minutes behind...

What about the weird edit in EP 9?

Did they reshoot the mat with Nate and Jen? Were Ron/Christina told of a prize right away or was that edited in later? Were TK/Rachel originally not going to be spared?  ????????????????

Let's get clarification of the flight taken from Hong Kong from the 3 teams not TK/Rachel. Ask each of them which flight did they take from HKG (was it the continuation of AI310 to Seoul) or did they get off and take CX506 direct to Taipei?

I'd like to know what racers were told before the race on:

1. How many NELs there would be?
2. Whether there would be any TBCs?
3. Details of how the speed bump is to function.
4. Details of the U-turn.

There is no way that a Fast Forward clue would send teams 200 miles away, which would put the team taking it way behind all other teams.

FWIW, my guess is that the FF task was located in Kaunas -- which is about 100 kilometers from Trakai and Vilnius (map). There's a helicopter training company there, and it's not that far from the pit stop at the village. So if the blondes confused miles with km -- and were talking about the round-trip distance in case they went for it and were beaten to the FF -- then it would all fit.

Of course, I'm still dying to know what the FF clue was and how much info they had about where the task was located.

I'd also love to know whether Azaria and Hendekea really spent 30 minutes trying to row in Dubrovnik before they figured out that they had to pull up the anchor. Also, are we sure yet whether the extended pit stop was in Dubrovnik or Florance? Finally, a generic question about any other edited-out clues, tasks, or intermediate points.

Hi strategery! Nice to see you! :waves: 

Yes--we all know about it but what I want to know is WHHHYYY?? We missed Trakai and blondes hanging from a helicopter for airport drama! ? Ugh....

We do need to ask Dubrovnik or Florence I guess...

I may have missed it, but the question for all racers is "What happened in detail at Trakai?" Also, what did they tell you about why this part was truncated out of the Lithuania episode?

Well, it looks like one of my questions has been answered already. In this interview, the Goths indicate that the pit stop in Florence was 12 hours:
Quote
RNO: Did you get much rest between legs in Florence You looked like you needed it!

Kynt: No, just the usual.

RNO: You only have 12 hours total.

Kynt: Right.
Some confirmation might be nice -- still seems weird that they'd have extended pit stops in Vilnius and Dubrovnik.

Other questions:

* How long was the pit stop in Mumbai? 24 hours? What about Bingo?

* Are teams allowed to change flights after they have booked their tickets? I know this has been allowed since TAR2 -- but a return to the TAR1 rule might explain why TK/Rachel didn't switch to a better flight to Osaka. Maybe CBS gave TPTB credit cards with lower maxes this season.

* Otherwise, did TK/Rachel look for a better flight to Osaka after they'd booked the one via Beijing? Did they try and find that the better flights were booked? Or were they just stoned out of their minds the whole time?

For Nate/Jen - Was there any sort of issue in checking into the pitstop at Osaka (whether it be a penalty, re-shoot, or whatever)?

For Shana - What was your reaction when you found out that the race headed to Florence, Italy (where you had lived for some time) 2 legs after your elimination? Did you feel that you would have had some advantage in Florence, or even in the region, Tuscany?

My only question other than "When can we expect TAR13?" is "Where can we can send "Told you Viva Laughlin was horrible!" notes to Les Moonves?"

My serious question to Phil is if he expects No Opportunity Wasted to return in Canada?

For those who are going...have lots of fun for me!  :keeta:

I have a question for Christina:

When you asked the ticket agent in Osaka not to give Nathan & Jennifer tickets on the same flight to Taipei that you and your father were on, were your efforts the only reason the ticket agent didn't allow the bickering couple on the flight?  Or was there another reason?
