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.
