One observation about the use of >36h Pit Stops in TAR 14: they're less frequently invoked than in earlier seasons, and have only been used on complicated long-haul travel:
Bran to Krasnoyarsk, via Bucharest and Moscow
Novosibirsk to Jaipur, via Moscow and Delhi

Assuming the hotel sighting was in Dubai, teams checked in on the morning of the 27th and only checked out two days later, on the morning of the 29th. This means Phil was unable to get a flight out on the 27th to film his next stand-ups, on the 28th. Instead, he's probably doing his narrations on the 29th, while the teams find a way to fly in.

(Why the hotel is likely to be in Dubai: a Dubai leg on the 27th and an extra leg on the 28th means Phil wouldn't have a full day to film his stand-ups - and there really isn't much space for an quick leg near Dubai.)

Flights on the 27th going to Paris (1500-2010), Heathrow (1545-2015), Munich (1630-2100) and Moscow (1740-2055) means you can get to practically any point in Europe before noon the next day. Africa next?



African cities unlikely to host next leg:
Nairobi, Cairo, Asmara, Addis Ababa, Johannesburg (direct from Dubai)
Luanda (via Paris); Abuja, Lagos (via London)

If Dubai comes immediately before the Netherlands as per Dutch Samadhi, I'll stick my neck out and say that there are probably two legs in the UAE.

Teams should be checking into Dubai on the morning of the 27th. That frees Phil to run off to the Netherlands either on the Dubai-Amsterdam direct (5Y 9989, 1420-1920), or a later Dubai-Munich-Amsterdam connection (EK 51, 1630-2100; CL 4690, 0645-0815). Either will get Phil into the Netherlands by the morning of the 28th.

Why then hold the teams until the morning of the 29th? They'd arrive in the late afternoon, and start racing proper on the 30th. Would Phil need two whole days to film his stand-ups?

Unless they just all wanted an extra day off, here's what the evidence suggests...
26 Jul: Teams arrive in Dubai at night
27 Jul: Teams race UAE I, check in morning
28 Jul: Teams race UAE II, check in morning; Phil flies to Netherlands in afternoon
29 Jul: Phil films stand-ups; teams fly to Netherlands and arrive in late afternoon
30 Jul: Teams race Netherlands, check in morning



And here's an educated guess based on timeline clues...
Leg 1: Los Angeles to Japan I (20 Jul)
Leg 2: Japan II (21 Jul)
Leg 3: Ho Chi Minh City (23 Jul)
Leg 4: Phnom Penh (25 Jul)
Leg 5: UAE I (27 Jul)
Leg 6: UAE II (28 Jul)
Leg 7: Netherlands (30 Jul)

Israel is looking more and more like something other than OUR race. The only way I can see it still fitting is if there is a flight that can get teams into Amsterdam very early in the AM of 7/30, or... we have an abbreviated pitstop in Israel (more of the 8 hour variety), allowing teams to leave the evening of 7/29. Thoughts?

Depends on where SteffieSunrise was. If she was in Dubai, Israel is out. A 29th morning check-out from Dubai corresponds with a 30th race day in the Netherlands. (Unless they did the entire Israel leg in darkness and THEN had a TBC...)

If she was in Israel, however, we could make this work, although Phil would have a tough time trying to keep pace...
27 Jul: Check in Dubai morning, check out evening, fly to Tel Aviv on RJ 619/RJ 342 (2210-0700) via Amman
28 Jul: Race in Israel, check in anytime
29 Jul: Check out Israel morning (SteffieSunrise sighting), fly to Amsterdam on numerous flights
30 Jul: Race in Netherlands

Coming from Dubai could be intrepreted as "was in Dubai"...we need to be cautious in assuming this means coming DIRECTLY from Dubai I think...

Italy remains a possibility for inbetween.

They would have to have only 2 hours of racing in Rome in order to fit that in with the standard 12 hour Pit Stop (EK 97 TO = 9:25 am AR = 1:45 pm).  It's crazy tight!  I vote for the next leg.

I'll get a more exact time of the morning for the windmill scene ...

Done.  They were at the windmill in the 8 to 9 am time frame.  So even it they did catch the earliest flight from Rome to AMS (KL 1590 TO = 6:15 am AR =  8:45 am) they would not be able to drive to the windmill in time.

Oh, And I guess we are still hanging on confirmation of SteffieSunrise's hotel location.  If that is someplace Italian then Italy before Netherlands becomes much more possible.   :lol:

I must be missing something...  although Italy is absolutely total spec,

If Israel should turn out to not be valid, then what would prevent teams from leaving Dubai late on the 27th or early on the 28th, and taking any of the Italian flights (Venice/Milan/Rome) that arr around 130-2 PM, and doing a leg, and then dep for ??Amsterdam  sometime on 7/29??

Steffi is English, so could also substitute in anywhere in the UK or Europe as well...

Seems like there is plenty of time, so why are we only looking at Dubai? I must be missing something....
