Does anyone have the times they were at LAX? Depending on when they got there, flying via Miami may have not been an option (the last flight out was at 2:30pm)

That is not correct...see what I posted re the flights to Santiago. :waves:

Maybe they're going to the LA Superior Court? :D

Yup, either Miami or DFW, and like was posted, the available flights are due to arrive in Chile within 15 - 30 mins of each other.

We can say that the teams might be resting now right?

and our first possible elimination (if teams did not compete in a starting line elimination)?

Yay for TAR 16 starting!

Yes I saw that, but of the flights from LAX to Miami from AA, the last one departed LAX at 2:30pm to Miami to get in at 10:15ish (with an 11:45 departure from MIA to SLC)

Or am I just confusing myself?

from JimmyHodson


@PuddinRFF They were NOT on the 11:50 American Airlines flight to DFW and more couples were still arriving in terminal at noon when I left.

@heyhay28 Sorry, I didn't recognize anyone or get pix, but they were at the AA terminal, but not on the 11:50 flight to DFW.

@heyhay28 Couples were still arriving in AA terminal @ noon.There was a 6'-6" guy, Asian couple, black couple, a pretty blonde girl. No pix!

...and if you exit the tunnel at Hill, turn left and go one block to the Civic Center Station (Metro).

Once at Civic Center Staton take either of the two lines (Red or Purple) one stop to Union Station.  Once there it's...
Quote
Now thereís a fast, affordable
connection between Downtown
LA and LAX thatís easy to reach
from Metro Rail, Metro Bus,
Metrolink and Amtrak. Try the
new Union Station FlyAway.
FlyAway buses run 24 hours a day (every
30 minutes from 5 am to 1 am, and each
hour from 1 am to 5 am). The buses leave
from Bay 9 of the Patsaouras Transit Plaza
adjacent to Union Station via the East Portal.
> Tickets are $3 one-way ($2 each way for
children 2-12). Purchase tickets before you
board at the FlyAway kiosk in the Patsaouras
Transit Plaza. Note: Metro Passes are not
valid on this service.

Press release when the service started estimated 45 minute trip non-stop to LAX.  I don't live there, so don't know if this is accurate or even if this a good time for a Saturday late AM trip.  But it would mean no expensive rental cars and no driving.  :duno:

The person who got the information got it at the DFW airport from someone working there, so it was confirmed by her at the DFW airport that Jeff and Jordan on that flight and those are their seats

And that's what scares me honestly. Trust me, I don't think the person that got it did it with any malicious or negative scary intent, but it scares me that an airline would give passenger information out, even to a relative and risk their job like that. I know, I know, it's not a big deal, but honestly, it should be in this day and age.

The poster at AllboutBigBrother.com is in Dallas currently and was checking flights via her flight attendant mom.  She confirmed that J/J are NOT on a flight coming into Dallas, but instead, they are on the Miami flight listed...hope that straightens it all out!  =)

Thanks Kristin! Teams were spotted at LAX in close prrximity to several gates...they could have easily been sitting at one and departing at the other.

So looks like teams via the Miami flight are confirmed then...

Since they have NEVER had all 11/12 teams on the SAME flight, and Santiago IS confirmed, we need to wait and see!

The Walt Disney Concert Hall at 111 South Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles, California is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center. Bounded by Hope Street, Grand Avenue, 1st and 2nd Streets, it seats 2,265 people and serves (among other purposes) as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Lillian Disney made an initial gift in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney's devotion to the arts and the city. The Frank Gehry-designed building opened on October 23 2003. Both the architecture by Frank Gehry and the acoustics of the concert hall (designed by Yasuhisa Toyota) were praised in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.



Looks extremely iconic enough for a good starting line location, INDOORS, to prevent spoilers from leaking out like last season... :funny:

Perhaps they start them inside and have them run up the steps of the actual concert hall, similar to when they left from the Coliseum?

 :lol:  for the traditionalist, they could have started outside too... just north of the Hall is the Music Center Plaza.  It's a bit open to the public, but could work just as well.  Go to this link and click on the "Music Center Plaza" panorama video.   :funny:

I think you just have to do enough work and provide enough info and then they'll give you that title. I'm not sure, though.
