apskip.......here is my complete posting on June 6. Note the first part was correcting your misassumption of flights on June 3......

I want to keep up with the missing transportation segments of AR21m as best I can. Here is what the choices were Singapore to Dhaka with the assumption of 3 June as the date:
You just transposed the date wrong, apskip. I doubt (and I think you will agree) that it is highly improbable that teams would fly from Surabaya to Singapore on June 2 and then fly from Singapore to Dhaka on June 3.....here is your orginal post about a connection SIN>DAC on the afternoon of June 2.
OK, if it was arrival Singapore at 925am 2 June, then it makes sense to look at where teams might have gone if they flew onward from SIN (which I expect they did do). Unfortunately, it gets complicated beyond the powers of reasonable analysis.
2pm - 3pm
That flight is BG 85 2:40pm--4:35 pm. on June 2, 2012.....it does not fly on June 3, 2012, btw.
So it is possible that teams arrived in Dhaka @ approx 5:00 pm on June 2, to finish Leg 4 in late afternoon/early evening.....or better would be to have an HoO and finish middle of the day on June3. Then pit stop till morning of June 4......and most of the day for Leg 5........then pit stop release about noon on June 5. That would give teams two flight options to get to Dubai...
4H 591 5:15pm---8:35pm
EK 585 9:30pm---12:58 am (June 6)
We know from the pilot's tweet that some teams were on the EK 585 flight.....but we just don't know how many.
From all the promo evidence, it appears that ALL the teams were competing at the same approx time of day......so whether teams were distributed on both/either BG85 or SQ446 or restricted to just SQ446, there does appear to be a HoO upon arrival in Dhaka and teams compete on morning of June3 to finish Leg 4.
I have always wondered if Biman Bangladesh Airlines is one of the airlines that WRP has blacklisted. It has come up several times in flight searches as a possible carrier, but never used.
