OK, you're World Race Productions and you have decided to send all the teams released from the pit stop in Epernay to the Seychelles on the same flights. What do you do?
1. Send them on AF952/HM (Air Seychelles) 007 CDG SEZ nonstop 1930 0715+1
2. Send them out earlier on QR020 (Qatar Airways) CDG DOH 1605 2340 connecting Doha with QR702 DOH SEZ 0050+1 0645+1?
I would send them out on the nonstop, as things could go wrong on a 6 hour 35 minute flight to Doha.
You might guess that it would be possible for some other flights, connecting in places like Doha or Dubai or Frankfurt or Rome or Milan or London or Zurich, but I cannot find any from anywhere other than Nairobi. This flight KQ450 cannot help us shorten the time to Mahe because its departure at 0905 is too early for any connections from Paris consistent with having all teams on the same flight.
