Neobie, I'm updating the timeline currently and trying to figure out the last several legs. Here are the sightings we have:
Dec 12: Phil spotted in Dubai en route to Malaysia
Dec 14: Team (boys) spotted en route from KL to Penang
Dec 15: Phil spotted in Penang International Airport McDonald's (apx 5:45pm)
So if teams are in Seychelles on 12/11, I think there's time for a KL leg on 12/12 and/or 12/13. Having trouble finding time for a second Shanghai leg, though. Our report of filming in Shanghai for 3-4 days is pretty typical for a single leg (including production set-up/tear-down time). Can you help?
Welcome back Woden!
I have Phil arriving in Kuala Lumpur on the 12th at 9.25pm, which suggests he films his stand-ups on the 13th and that the Malaysia leg takes place on the 14th. Phil leaving Penang on the 15th ties in well with a stand-up day in Singapore then, followed by the Singapore leg on the 16th.
Teams leave Shanghai at 1.45pm of the 20th. Even if Phil gets a day for himself in China on the 17th, we have the Shanghai leg taking place on the 18th, and too much downtime before leaving. Phil hasn't needed an extra day for stand-ups in the final city for the past few seasons, and Pit Stops have been cut short in the double legs in TAR 13 Moscow, TAR 14 Beijing and TAR 15 Prague. I believe that there is a second leg on the 19th (maybe/likely night of 18th), before the final departure on the 20th.
On a (tangentially) related note: we presume teams took UA 858 from Shanghai to San Francisco (1345-0825). This means they didn't manage to catch FM 827 (1000-1250) to Seoul, connecting to UA 892 to San Francisco (1505-0806), and that gives us a four-hour window in which teams could have been released from the penultimate Pit Stop.
