I would like to see them visit Canada, I would love to see my home of Niagara Falls in HD, although I would be dissapointed as I am studying abroad while they are filming. I would love to see Samoa or the Cook Islands or Greece. Selfishly, I would love them to come to Canberra, Australia while I am studying here. As for teams, I love to hate Brenchel so I would be okay with them on the race.

On Season 8 they visited the Niagara Gorge.

I guess calling it the Niagara Gorge is accurate. It is more accurate to call the scene of the jetboat ride from Toronto to Joseph Davis State Park as the Niagara River. That state park is quite close to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and 10 miles to Niagara Falls.

The jet boat ride is in Queenston, not Toronto  :]

I most recently went there on my fantasy race (some of you know this ;)), and I had to place teams on charter flights because not even FlightStats had ANY flights there. :lol: Trouble with transport to the islands could be why they've never been there.

But nonetheless, I think they should go there as well because there is some great scenery! :tup:

Prophet,
I think your general comment about plane service to islands is true, particularly to smaller islands as there is plenty is service to Hawaii, Jamaica, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and the larger islands . More important, even if a route exists into a specific smaller island, the frequency of service is a major concern.   Yes, this is the major reason why we don't see more small islands. The Amazing Race has been to each of the islands I cited above and to Hawaii and New Zealand multiple times.

I'm sure you know this, but FlightStats does not own or operate any planes. They just report on future and historical flight information.

The Falkland islands does have regular flights. There are two flights every Saturday. One LAN flight from Santiago via Punta Arenas (or Rio Gallegos) and one RAF flight from the UK (which makes a stopover at Ascension).

The low frequency of flights mean that it is unlikely the race will visit except by using Charter flights.
