Well, I am assuming that they arrived in Zurich on the Swissair flight.......then took train to Interlaken......did the leg and got checked in. Peach suggested a rolling pit stop on a train. I just put 6 pm into the schedule system.

From Interlaken on the high speed connection, there are trains about every hour, close to the hour till midnight. Then start up again in the morning.

If they are instructed to go to Zurich to take that night sleeper train, then they have a 2 hour trip to Zurich from Interlaken. Those trains run about every 30 minutes.

I am assuming 2 legs, one in Switzerland and one in Berlin.

I will assume that the teams were ready to return from Berlin to the U.S. today. Which flights might they take?

There is only one nonstop to the eastern half of the U.S.:
UA97 TXL 1034 1417, which landed in Newark just over one hour ago at gate B61.

I think no rolling Pit Stop.

Switzerland Pit Stop is in the afternoon/evening of 30 Nov. Phil flies to Berlin the next morning.

Option 1
Teams are held until the morning, and waste the daytime of 1 Dec taking a train up.
Option 2
Teams are held even longer at the Pit Stop, then fly to Berlin.

In both cases, teams race in the early evening of 1 Dec in Berlin.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

There are excellent connections for the whole US via Berlin-Frankfurt: From Seattle to Houston to NY, from LA to Chicago to Miami.

If they were to come back through Latin America: Then there are only four connections via Berlin-Frankfurt:

2 to Mexico:
Mexico City and on via Lufthansa
Cancun and on via Condor
(within a two hour time span)
(I know, I know, ...always wishing)

1 ea. to Venezuela and Colombia:
Caracas or Bogota via Lufthansa

Let me throw out a trend.

For years, Germans have liked to take a winter vacation in south Florida or the Caribbean; you can include the Bahamas as well. (Maybe even Bermuda.) I agree with Peach December 1st or 2nd is too early. And the 3rd would only be the 22nd day of filming, when most Races are 22-23 days.

East coast or midwest more likely due to early sunset times. Of course they have raced in darkness I would think they would prefer daylight.

I use the "if it's an Amazing Race finale, the final flight must be nonstop" theory. This may not be totally accurate, but it does work most of the time. It allows teams to NOT be sighted changing planes. So I looked at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Prestwick (it used to have nonstop flights to the U.S. but not today) and Manchester. Here is what I found (note that several others had found parts of this and reported them previously):

EDI EWR UA97 1034 1417

GLA EWR UA27 0938 1137 (just landed ahead of schedule and first one from this entire group to do so)

MAN MCO  VS75  1138 1556

MAN MCO VS73  1255 1649

MAN PHL US235 1117 1354

MAN EWR UA21 0916 1210

MAN JFK  AA351 1031 1304

IF they are in Belfast, there is an early morning flight to Manchester. Teams then could connect to flights to NYC/Newark, Chicago or Philadelphia. Since they were in NYC in TAR21, I would think that is not an option. The Chicago and Philadelphia arrive with lots of daylight filming time available.
