Wait a minute, if they leave Pitstart at 8AM why to they get on a flight to Miami that departs at 11:30 PM? Production requirements?
I copied this from the Transportation primary options forum...didn't want to quote the entire (long) post...
leg 12 12/12 It appears that teams get to Sao Paulo airport by late evening on 12/12. Why this is the case is totally unclear, since there are several good flights from Rio (GIG) to Miami:
JJ8056 2208 0352+1
AA904 2225 0348+1
From Sao Paulo (GRU), here are the flights:
AA906 2352 0509+1
JJ8090 0005 (12/13) 0539
AA930 0336 0936 (departed and arrived 90 minutes late)
AA198 1043 1526 (major delay due to reported problems with pilots; teams were switched to AA930)
Would they have specified that flight for production reasons? So they had time to get the other 8 teams and Phil back first?
