Peach, It's obvious that there are many wishlists being submitted. Where else do posters have to put them? Perhaps you opening a new thread just for them would be a good way to handle them.

Oh WHAT a good idea. :lol:

Anyway, I remembered learning in Geog that Istanbul is the only city in the world lying on two continent, Asia and Europe.

So... can we assume they skipped the whole Africa.. or can they actually go back down again after (Istanbul.. leg 4?) and rumoured (leg 5 AND/OR 6?). I don't think so right.. they're more likely to do 2 to 3 legs in Europe, 2 legs in South America.. then back to USA?

Now that they are in Moscow, I think it's a good possibility they go to Scandinavia. Then into Europe. With 5 legs left, 4 not counting the last in the U.S., another in Russia or former Soviet Union country, 1 or 2 in Scandinavia, then Europe.

me too, and I'm thinking that Africa will be the last continent to visit for TAR 21 after Europe and the best and even the safest country to get there is hopefully they'll visit to Cape Verde Island as the newest country to feature it.  Then their final destination is either to Washington, Boston or New Orleans. :)

Just for scope, there are direct flights to the US from Cairo, Casablanca, Accra, Dakar, Johannesburg, and I think Cape Town and Addis Ababa. Since these flights are mainly toward New York or Washington, they could go just about anywhere with only a single connection.

Or if they want to go to DC while I'm visiting school that would be cool too.

I hope Iceland is visited again, and if so it would be good place for the 11th leg (penultimate leg)
Then the Final Leg would have teams fly nonstop direct on Icelandair to these cities in the US: (in parenthesis was the last time city was visited on final leg)
-Boston
-Denver (TAR9)
-Minneapolis
-New York City/JFK (TAR10)
-Orlando/Sanford
-Seattle (TAR3)
-Washington/Dulles
The reason I predict Iceland would be the penultimate leg is due to the fact it was last visited on TAR6, most of that visit was mainly in the countryside where they camped out on the glacier.  Reykjavik the capital city was never visited thats my reason.

mjriches,

I think you have a terrific idea there. Iceland is a perfect location for the last stop. However, there are only 2 U.S. destination cities are feasible due to nonstop flights. I do not believe that World Race Productions will choose somewhere where it has to be connecting flights. So that eliminates Orlando, Washington-IAD and Chicago (which you did not have but which was the reverse direction in AR6).

Since WRP is unlikely to land a finale in the U.S. late afternoon, here are unlikely-to-be-used nonstop flights from Reykjavik to:

New York JFK Icelandair 615 1700 1900
Minneapolis  Icelandair 657 1645 1805
Denver         Icelandair 671 1645 1840
Seattle         Icelandair 681 1700 1845

That leaves these 2 flights as the prime possibilities if Iceland is the penultimate leg of AR21:

New York JFK Icelandair 613 1030 1230
Boson          Icelandair 635 1030 1205

West Africa might be next? To some unexpected new country for two legs like Netherlands-Burkina Faso.

Possibly, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Togo, Benin, Cameroon or Liberia.

I have a hunch that historic patterns of non-usage (except for AR8) will be overturned by AR21 visiting Central America. There are international airports here:

Belize
Guatemala City
San Salvador
Honduras
Nicaragua
Costa Rica
and of course Panama City

There are no direct flights from Amsterdam to any of these except (as we know from AR19) Panama City. The one flight per day AMS PTY is KL757 1310 1710. However, I don't think that a twice visited country will be visited a third time. I think that one of Guatemala, San Salvador, Honduras or Nicaragua, followed by a visit to Belize (where WRP had everything set up for an earlier Amazing Race but had to reroute it).

To continue this line of thinking back into the United States, there are only 3 airports which appear to have nonstop flights on Saturdays, Miami, Houston and DFW. None of them have morning arrivals; all of them arrive in mid-afternoon:

BZE MIA AA2180 1120 1530
BZE MIA AA2104 1420 1825

BZE IAH UA5478 1125 1459
BZE IAH UA1405 1248 1624

BZE DFW AA2146 1230 1630

So that leads me back to San Salvador as a maybe better airport to leave Central America from.

That leads to these further analyses of flights from San Salvador, which are quite superior to those from Belize in earlier arrivals:

SAL MIA TA310 0855 1335

SAL IAH UA1467 0620 1032
SAL IAH TA424 0855 1305

SAL DFW TA440 0844 1304
SAL DFW A1998 0820 1250

SAL LAX TA422 1057 1327

There are additional afternoon flights but the same logic as above leads me to ignore them.

Chicago was left off the list because Icelandair doesn't fly there.  I was only using current direct flights only.
-Also another possible penultimate leg would be Cape Verde.  Off the Northwest African coast, it would also be plausible because there is one flight direct to Boston from Praia on TACV Airlines.

They use Nethelands leg to change continent every time:
S4:Europe-Asia(India)
S12:Europe-Africa( Burkina Faso)
S15:Asia(Dubai)-Europe
S19:Asia-Central America(Panama)

So I predict next legs of TAR21:
Leg10:a new country(central america)
Leg11:Canada
Leg12:USA
