TAR 19 Locations/Destinations **Spoilers**
« on: June 03, 2011, 07:50:22 AM »
Dear all,

I just googled to see if there is any news about The Amazing Race 19 and I found the following web site in Chinese posted it today.

http://5i01.com/topicdetail.php?f=364&t=2187819&last=28352949

The message is about a sponsor request for Dragon Boat organization/team? to participate in the show.

The request mentioned the 1st leg will start at Taiwan. 11 teams will go to Riverside Park? (in Yilan County?). TAR teams will become a helsman and drummer and work with the dragon boat teams (which they are now requesting) to race to the finishing point.

Estimate date for shooting is on June 20...And they will do the test on Jun 18 & 19.

I am not sure if this is a solid information...but i just want to share what i found.

If true, it looks like they will be heading westbound again, which means probably a west coast starting line. How many places are left in LA that they haven't used for a starting line? Maybe O.J's old house?

The race could start in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Hawaii, San Diego, Anchorage, or Phoenix other than LA.

Schwartmoor,

Thanks for the intelligence on AR19. I noted "Reward: 6 / 18 6 / 20 $ 54,000 per day; 6 / 19 6 / 20 two days $ 36,000" as a lot of money if in U.S. dollars. I assume that that reward is being quoted in New Taiwanese dollars and not U.S. dollars. The NT$ is currently worth 3.5 U.S. cents, so these rewards for a team of 18 people would equate to U.S.$ 1890 for 6 teams and $1260 for the other 6 teams. Does that seem to be appropriate compensation for a dragon boat team, U.S.$105 and $U.S.60 per individual?

There is no news of TARA and I think its too early for another season of TARAus. TAR Israel just finished. I don't think China Rush will visit Taiwan..

If teams are en route to Taiwan now.

They will most probably be connecting from Hong Kong. (Kowloon, China) :groan: (I was there just a few days ago!!)

Flight is most likely from JFK to Hong Kong to Taiwan via Cathay Pacific.

Right? I'm checking up the flights. :tup:

Its actually the same flight that is crosslisted between two different airlines. But I still don't believe that fb message (and I haven't been able to find it on fb).

I'm more interested in those flights that go to the Caribbean (there are flights to Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico in the next six hours).

I think there might be other flight options, but this is a viable option too.

SCHEDULED ARRIVAL IN HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FROM JFK


Scheduled arrival at 4.46am - 5.15am. And if teams take another flight into Taiwan, it will be in the day and great for an entire leg in the day, without HoH.

Let me begin with the statement that I have no special information. Everything below is based on my analysis of flight possibilities. The most obvious connect point into Taipei is, as RealityTVistheBest indicates, from Hong Kong. Here are the flights that have not happened yet because it is only 4am Saturday there and because the arrival of the flight indicated by RealityTVistheBest, BR231/CO9623 from JFK is expected at 458am +1. It would then connect to any of a number of flights to Taipei:

KA486 0815+1 1000+1
CX474 0835+1 1025+1
CX530 0910+1 1055+1
CI2928 0950+1 1110+1

The HKG TPE portion has several options (typical of World Race Productions), but the JFK HKG portion if true has only the one above.

A standard connect point from the U.S. into eastern Asia is Tokyo's Narita airport. Here are the flight possibilities at the relevant times, which for this route would be the standard WRP early afternoon departure:

For JRK NRT a 6-code-shared flight led by NH9 1253 1525+1 or the 3-code-shared flight led by JL5 1325 1611+1 would apply.
For NRT TPE a 4-code shared flight led by NO1089 1825+1 2000+1 or a 3-code-shared flight led by UA850 1810+1 2045+1

Another unusual possibility that works because it is the only day of the week that it is possible is through Anchorage. KE358 departed JFK at 0356am (26 minutes late) this morning and arrived ANC 0633. From there one can connect to ANC TPE on either CI5321 0950 1313+1 or CI5233 1125 1305+1. Because it is diabolical to depart for Taipei from the U.S. East Coast, if Taipei is the first leg destination, then I expect that WRP used the more diabolical and difficult to spot route, which is through Anchorage.

Take your pick until we have real sightings.

KE358, CI5321 and CI5233 are cargo flights.

If in fact, Race 19 is using JFK as the first airport out of the country, I can think of an appropriate and fitting start line. Unfortunately, the 10th anniversary of the premiere falls during Labor Day weekend and the following Sunday is the 10th anniversary of 9/11; so I suspect we're not going to get a true "anniversary" episode. But like I said there is a location for a TAR start line that would be extremely appropriate if the teams are flying out of JFK.

I think you can give up on the JFK info, the poster admitted it was a "joke"  LIE.

Here are some options for teams to make assuming that they start this afternoon on the West Coast.

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=230232464&airline=CI&flightNumber=5&departureDate=2011-06-18

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=230230818&airline=AA&flightNumber=7967&departureDate=2011-06-18

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=230318198&airline=CI&flightNumber=5383&departureDate=2011-06-19

Of course these do not include the possibility of a myriad of connections through Asian airports such as Shangai, Hong Kong, etc.

San Francisco has flights to Taipei too.  UAL853 @2:40pm or connect through Narita.

This is the earliest direct flight to Copenhagen they can make if they are on LH 451:

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=230338394&airline=LH&flightNumber=830&departureDate=2011-06-19

Interestingly it is also Lufthansa so a possible connection?
