Based on the history of the Amazing Race, the logical flights are AA169 and UA891 as outlined by Chateau. However, those are not the only possiblities in the approximate time frame.

There also was :

KE002 11:40  -  15:05
NH005 12:55  -  16:20
NW001 12:55  -  16:20  (note: NH005 may be a code-share of this)
JL061 (code-share American and Delta) 13:20  -  16:45

The next flights do not leave until 1445, almost 1.5 hours later so I think the above are what makes sense.

Does it count if I saw teams board flight UA 891 at gate 76?

If apskip didn't see it - it may not have happened... :lol:

Did anyone spot which flight Phil got on?

For all those working hard on air transportation schedules (how many besides Chateau and me? and I'm sure Neobie as soon as he fully catches up to AR15), here is the data on UA891:

departed LAX 118pm on Saturdqay July 18 5 minutes late
arrived NRT 403pm Sunday July 19 27 minutes early

AW, Shiatsu!
I was in Tokyo two weeks ago, and I was keeping an eye on TARA and TAR(even though I knew the race didn't start).
I was going to ask one of the airport security people if there was sighting of people running around ...but I didn't...too weird to ask...

I think I may have stumbled on to a TAR sighting on Twitter. I searched on "amazing race" and after wading through about 10 million posts about TAR 14 which apparently just started running overseas (Australian TV?), I found this posted by the user girlclumsy (who appears to be an Aussie vacationing in Vietnam):

"Saw a finishing leg of "The Amazing Race" being filmed outside HCMC's Reunification Palace this morning."

With a follow up after a question:

"They actually pulled up in a cab, yelled "Go! Go!" like they were GIs, then ran (once cued) towards the host near a tank."

My co-worker, who has vacationed in Vietnam several times, verifies that there is a Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City. He wasn't much on details though.

If I'm not mistaken, it would be Thursday for us in Asia, around 5 - 7 pm when this "leg" ended...

ETA: Could they actually use a government based building as a pit stop (As I read, it is the home for the Vietnamese president(?)), considering that there are other locations in HCMC?

ETA: 7:30-11:00, 13:00-16:00 daily... so they must have checked in during those times...

This is PROBABLY the tank:

It's there, though I don't want to violate someone's picture. It's the tank that crossed this palace during the Saigon war??

TARA 3 ep 3 (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17575.0.html) was also partially in Saigon (HCMC)  last time. They then went to HUE. Interestingly, they went from there to Taiwan.

In this tight budget times, it may make sense for TAR to use some of those same contacts.

So suppose (SPEC) that TAR 15 went Japan>>Taiwan>>VietNam??

TIMES:
The current time in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is 12:13 PM on Friday, July 24, 2009.

Vietnam Should be the third leg AT LEAST. If they left LA on Sunday and arrived in Japan on Sunday (Asia Time) and even if they had to wait outside for a night that would put them in leg 3-4.

Timeline as of now:

Sunday(US Time): Starting Line, Fly to Japan.
Sunday( Asia Time): Arrive in Japan Afternoon.
Monday (Asia Time): Estimated End of First leg (it could also be Sunday night if they finish all task and no hours of operation    which I doubt)

Monday Night-Tuesday Early Morning: Start of 2nd leg (if it isn't TBC)

Thursday: Confirmed in Vietnam. Pitstop in Morning.

So they have probably 2 days to complete the 2nd leg and maybe 3rd leg.

I'm thinking of Laos being visited in Leg 2 than Vietnam... Since people there aren't that open to the race yet, could there be possibilities that they landed there and moved to Vietnam on the third leg?

iiam.

With the ASSUMPTION/OPINION/SPECULATION that teams arrived yesterday as well and this is the third leg...

But here's the flight status of the previous day: Assuming teams arrived in Saigon the midmorning/dawn as well, and get to race similar to TAR14's Phuket Thailand Leg, Only flights from Manila (1230 AM), Shanghai (12:30 AM) and Nanning (2:05 AM)

Flights from the following cities arrives 6 - 9 AM: Bangkok, KL, Singapore, Manila and Hanoi. Flights to Kaoshiung and Taipei arrive late around 9:40 - 10:00 in the morning, HCMC, Vietnam.

i'm guessing that most teams arrive within the 6-9am time because the spoiler was posted 6pm GMT+8 which is 4pm Vietnam. SO they probably check-in in the afternoon or they took a late night flight and arrived Wednesday evening/night.

True - But is it possible that that crossed from Laos to Vietnam via car/bus/train? I don't know if its possible but they are right next to each other.
