Caelestor:
updated by woden.

Kiwi Jay:
United and Delta seem to fit!

David:
Well, maybe it is possible that the flights are the ones departing at 12.52pm, 1.15pm, and 3.30pm. Teams would be in a 27-minute time difference?? The first direct flight would get teams almost 2 hours and a half ahead? Maybe only one team could take the first flight, and the rest could fight for other flights??

PS: We should think that they may be bunched in a Dep. Times the next morning, or somthieng like that, so that 2.5 hour lead would disappear...

Caelestor:
There's clearly going to be an Hoo once they get there.

25 minutes by taxi from the airport:
