I am trying to reconcile the information presented in this telecast to real-time flight information for Dec. 8, 2012. Previous information assumed Dec. 7 but if you count out the days of the race that cannot be true. I cannot quite get the first one to match but it's only a half hour off and has no impact on when teams reach Nairobi.
From Baku there are two flights to Istanbul possible (note - I also checked Dubai, Doha, Muscat and Cairo but none had any flights):
TK337 0800 0915
J2 75 1000 1038
Both streams of teams meet up and got on the same Dec. 8 flight from Istanbul to Nairobi:
TK607 1843 0223+1
So then they wait around for about 5.5 hours for the first Precision Air flight to Arusha, PW724 0800+1 0900+1.
The flight you have teams on from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro International, PW724, is a daylight flight. How do you reconcile that with the episode when teams land at Kilimanjaor in the dark, take a taxi from there to the Arusha airport, sign in for charter flights from Arusha to Ngorogoro, still in the dark. Then they have an HoO waiting for charter flights at 930, 945, 1000?
There is/was no 830 departure to anywhere from Baku on Dec 8. If you noticed the travel agent computer screens, TPTB had them all fogged up so we couldnt see. I think they were trying to fool up. I think a much more likely itinerary was:
GYD to DXB J2 11 1005-12:39 pm
DXB to NBO EK721 305 pm to 715 pm
NBO to JRO PW728 1000 pm to 1100 pm
This fits more into what was seen on the televised episode.
