apskip:
I am trying to reconcile different dates for the flight combinations from Hanoi to Africa. The departure date could be as early as Nov. 23 if these flights were taken:

If Nov. 23 it could be: HAN HKG QR6880 1725 2121 or HX9016 1900 2200
If Nov. 24 it could be: HAN HKG 529 1935 2230 or HX9016 2003 2237

The connection HKG JNB would be:
for Nov. 23 SA287 2341 0711+1 or CX749 2345 0641+1
for Nov. 24 SA287 2345 0711+1 or CX749 2345 0635+1

The connection JNB MUB would be:
for Nov. 24  or Nov. 25 BP212 1140 1320 or 4Z8300 1145 1325

The return MUB JNB would be most likely on Nov. 26 or 27 be:
4Z8301 1400 1540 or BP211 1420 1600

I remember that there were actual sightings at HKG which would confirm the date for the flights going west and others at JNB which would confirm the date for the flights going north. If anyone can provide those, it would save me a lot of trouble sifting through that thread to find them.

But we KNOW the dates for one group anyway?  Check the Timeline for goodies like these, Dom usually has the links to the relevant info there, should all be in the next page or two.

 
 KA296: HAN > HKG @ 1045 - 1335

Peach,

That is one I believe a sighting for 2 or 3 teams. What about the rest of them? It is possible that all teams got the same flights, but that bunching on the same first flight is not typical for this stage of an Amazing Race.

georgiapeach:
That's right. They are are on diff flights we believe, But close, not days apart.

The connection HKG JNB after the opening flight KA296 HAN HKG would after a 10 hour wait in Hong Kong airport be:

for Nov. 23 SA287 2341 0711+1 or CX749 2345 0641+1
for Nov. 24 SA287 2345 0711+1 or CX749 2345 0635+1

The connection JNB MUB would be:
for Nov. 24 or Nov. 25 BP212 1140 1320 or 4Z8300 1145 1325

It is now apparent that all of episode 7 stays in Botswana. That means that the flights out starting episode 8 will almost certainly be  MUB JNB would be most likely on Nov. 26 or 27:

4Z8301 1400 1540 or BP211 1420 1600

The question of whether the sighting in Switzerland is real or teams go directly to Berlin. I don't know but am going to dig up the prior research on this and add some of my own.
