It's possible the blondes are on this:
SQ 38 from Singapore to Los Angeles, 1620-1750

Game over for them.

Not seen at the gate.

Doesn't mean they weren't holed up in a Club lounge though...

Assuming the same flight our blondes were on yesterday, QZ 8361 from Bandung to Singapore, 30 Jun 1115-1355?

The question is: why didn't production speed it up and let teams take an earlier flight from Bandung to Singapore, 0540-0830?
Is it because teams will arrive at night if they took the earlier flight, or is it because their destination isn't served before that, making an earlier arrival in Singapore moot?

An example:
If Leg 11 was in Hong Kong, letting teams take the 5.40am flight from Bandung allows them to catch an earlier Singapore-Hong Kong connection (0955-1405), leaving them time in Hong Kong to film a leg today (30 Jun) afternoon.
Instead, the earliest time they can now arrive in Hong Kong is 6.50pm, an awkward time for filming unless they want a night leg.
Hence, Hong Kong is unlikely as their destination.

The same principle applies to Southeast Asia, I think.

Australia/Northeast Asia hence seems more likely. Their current trajectory allows them to fly and arrive the morning of 1 Jul (date fixed). (Taking the earlier Bandung-Singapore flight would make them arrive the evening of 30 Jun, again awkward for filming.)

Myanmar confirmed?

Then the flight from Bangkok connected through Singapore before they land in Bandung is all on the straight line...

Well, it's hard to imagine Phil taking side trips in the middle of filming the Race, and having a date like that certainly helps piece together the timeline of the filming of this Race.

Well pre-supposing that Tokyo is Leg 11, that leaves a lot of US cities for the finale. All these cities have direct nonstop flights from Tokyo (Narita-NRT). The number after a city is the number of flights to that city/airport. Cities that are bolded, have not hosted a start or a finish.

Atlanta, Ga
Boston, Ma-2
Chicago, IL-4
Dallas, Tx-2
Denver, Co
Detroit, Mi
Honolulu, Hi-9
Houston, Tx
Los Angeles, Ca - 8
Minneapolis, Mn
New York (JFK)-4
Newark, Nj
Portland, Or
San Diego, Ca
San Francisco, Ca-4
San Jose, Ca
Seattle, Wa-3
Washington, DC-2

There are a few flights from Tokyo's other airport to the US.....Haneda HND

Honolulu, Hi -3
Los Angeles, Ca -2
San Francisco, Ca
Seattle, Wa

If they arrived in Singapore on the 8:30am flight on Saturday (June 29, 2013)

the most likely flight they would have taken to Tokyo would be

S Q 12 which departs at 9:25am from terminal 3.

That's the flight that they possibly got on, if they went directly to Tokyo via SG after Bandung and had no leg in between Bandung and Tokyo.

The newest tweet saw teams in Singapore at around 2.45pm on 30 Jun 2013.

This means:
QZ 8361 from Bandung to Singapore, 1115-1355
SQ 638 from Singapore to Tokyo, 2355-0800

I couldn't find a faster flight out of Singapore via Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, or Taipei.

Apskip has moved on to greater things and is now correcting the angels on how the world should be run...

Correction: There are several faster flights, just none that arrive the very same evening (30 Jun). The earliest to arrive is via Hong Kong, arriving at 6.10am, two hours before the direct Singapore-Tokyo flight:
SQ 870 from Singapore to Hong Kong, 1900-2245 (among other flights)
CX 524 from Hong Kong to Tokyo, 0100-0610

This is followed closely by a Bangkok connection:
TR 2114 from Singapore to Bangkok, 1925-2055 (among other flights)
TG 640 from Bangkok to Tokyo, 2210-0620

Do remember that the second Singapore tweet is UNSUPPORTED. A tweet, nothing more. NO photos, NO team descriptions. I have no reason to disbelieve it...but just saying. It appears to conflict with earlier evidence regarding when teams MAY have left Indo.
