And it is letting me book so maybe not us? ???

There was another float plane service.  Also, they may be all done with flying by now.

The distance shown (less than 1 hour driving time) explained why the racers appeared at LAX early in the morning  ;)

I was looking back at sightings and transportation thread. I didn't see this airport mentioned. Evenes/Halstad/Narvik International Airport (EVE). It is located 99 miles from Svolvaer, down the E10 highway, back toward Narvik. This airport has connections to Oslo and Bodo. Six r/t a day from Oslo to Evenes on 737s. Might not work for getting to Svolvaer, but sure looks like the way out.

I remember in TAR17, that TPTB had teams driving in this part of the world.

I haven't checked the flights to see if any would fit....I am not really sure of any times that teams were spotted in Norway anyway.

These are flight options on Sunday, June 16th from Oslo to Evenes. Evenes is 99 miles from Svolvaer on the same side of the fijord. Evenes even lists a flight to Narita. It is a regional airport for northern Norway. Notice that all flights are on 737 aircraft...not the small 40 passenger jets.

DY 360   8:55 AM  (8:51 AM)   10:35 AM  (10:19 AM)   73H   
SK 4086  11:30 AM  (11:37 AM)  1:05 PM  (1:06 PM)   738
DY 364   1:20 PM  (1:21 PM)  3:00 PM  (2:48PM)  73H 
SK 4094  3:50 PM (4:02 PM)     5:30 PM (5:30 PM)  738   
DY 366   5:55 PM (5:57 PM)  7:35 PM (7:28 PM) 73H   
SK 4098   8:20 PM (8:39 PM)     9:55 PM (10:12 PM)   738   
DY 368   10:15 PM (10:17 PM)     11:55 PM (11:54 PM)  73H


TP768 is the one direct flight from Lisbon to Oslo. This is actually a good escape flight for Phil, if he didn't fly the night before after the Pit Stop. Production could delay teams release from Lisbon Pit Stop, to insure they do not make this flight. There are multiple flights from Lisbon to all the rest of the main European connecting airports and then multiple flights from those airports to Oslo.
TP768  8:55 AM (9:31 AM)    1:55 PM  (1:55 PM)

I had thought that the midnight sighting in Svolvaer matched up pretty well with a flight to Bodo, then the ferry across to Svolvaer. The timings work out, not sure about this option through Evenes?

Well if Santiago is a NEL as some have speculated, then that means 9 teams going to Lofoten area. That is 36 people, not counting associated production. To me, sort of rules out the 37 passenger jets for the Oslo to Bodo journey.

Oslo to Evenes
SK 4098   8:20 PM (8:39 PM)     9:55 PM (10:12 PM)   738 (100+ passenger jet)

This flight provides time for the ~2 hour drive from Evenes airport to Svolvaer with arrival at about midnight. That is if they are driving. I haven't found any evidence of a late night bus service. They did drive in this part of the world in TAR 17. Midnight sun means no night driving in the fjords either.  Anyway.....have no idea if this happened......just another alternative.

Ok, this is the post on FB that Stylemikro found:

XXXXXXXXXX in The Amazing Race
8 hours ago.

Just seen them at Lisbon airport!

I calculate this to be 1:23 PM/1323 in Lisbon airport. Next sighting is in Svolvaer at midnight.

With Slowhatch's new ID of Henningsvaer from The Intro caps...

My GUESS would be that teams were in Svolvaer to get cars.

And if one were stuck at Sao Paolo without tickets for the TP 86 direct to Lisbon, here are the next best options:

Via Sao Paolo to Lisbon: 1400-1510, 1705-0640 (arriving before the direct flight)
Via Madrid to Lisbon: 1510-0620 (delayed to arrive in Madrid 0803), 0735-0750 or 0950-1005
Via Salvador to Lisbon: 1515-1728, 2205-1020

IB6842, EZE-MAD, 1342-0636+1 (scheduled 1325-0620+1) - missed connection
JJ8019, EZE-GRU, 2032-2245 (scheduled 1720-2000) - booked, rerouted; but arrived almost three hours late

Editor's note: I now have changed the actual times of Tim/Danny and Brandon/Adam flights and see photos attached below, although they booked their flights to Lisbon and captioned on screen that their flight is showing via Madrid without mentioning of Buenos Aires. As for Chester/Ephraim, they were in international airspace and territory for 1 day and 16.5 hours between 2:35 am on June 14th (Santiago time) and ~12:00 am on June 16th (Lisbon time).

Tim/Danny and Brandon/Adam via Madrid
IB6830, SCL-MAD, 1118-0623+1 (scheduled 1120-0620+1)
NI1011, MAD-LIS, 0950+1-0954+1 (scheduled 0950+1-1005+1)

Chester/Ephraim via different cities
AC92, SCL-EZE, 1030-1318 (scheduled 1020-1320) -  ticket counter purchased wrong tickets in LAN flight to Buenos Aires, itinerary got scrambled
IB6842, EZE-MAD, 1342-0636+1 (scheduled 1325-0620+1) - missed connection
JJ8019, EZE-GRU, 2032-2245 (scheduled 1720-2000) - booked; but arrived almost three hours late
TP88, GRU-LIS, 2301-1252+1 (scheduled 2225-1215+1) - missed connection once again
JJ8084, GRU-LHR, 2359-1456+1 (scheduled 2355-1500+1) - booked, rerouting route
TP377, LHR-LIS, 1917+1-2110+1 (scheduled 1830+1-2110+1)

Sunset in Lisbon on June 15th, 2013 was on 9:03 pm local time, Chester/Ephraim arrived approximately 10:00 pm. But, civil twilight ended in Lisbon on that date was 9:35 pm.

Tim/Danny and Brandon/Adam may have been through EZE on their way to Madrid, as there was a shot of Brandon/Adam sitting on a sky airlines plane, which I think is H2 501 SCL-EZE 0730-1035, followed by IB 6842 EZE-MAD 1325-0620+1 (1342-0636+1)

For Chester/Ephraim:
First They stated that they arrived in EZE at 5:30 in the morning, making their first part of the trip H2 505  SCL-EZE 0230-0535 (0230-0521) (I think there is also a shot of them boarding a sky airlines plane)
Second they stated that their next leg is delayed for 4 hours, so their iternary was UX 42  EZE-MAD 1210-0530+1. Flightstats has a departure time of 1730 for that flight (which is ultimately a 5.5 hours delay), with arrival time unknown. Of course at this time they cannot possibly make their original flight from Madrid to Lisbon, which should be P6 1151 MAD-LIS 0640-0700 (0640-0656). The arrival ETA of the Air Europa flight is around 11am if in-flight time remains the same, which can still help them make TP 1013 MAD-LIS 1210-1225 (1227-1231), actually before Tim/Marie arrives.
However, they chose to reroute through GRU, on JJ 8019 EZE-GRU 1720-2000 (2032-2245). It got delayed for almost 3 hours, and caused them to miss TP 88  GRU-LIS 2225-1215+1 (2301-1252+1) (which left late but not late enough unfortunately).
At this point they went to ticket agent and they stated that they got a British Airways flight to London that leaves at 3:45AM in the morning of 6/15. This is where confusion starts as I cannot find this flight anywhere. I see no flights going to Europe from GRU on 6/15 from 12AM-6AM except one to Istanbul, which is way too far. On the screen above ticket counter there is a time display of 01:42AM so that might make JJ 8084 impossible. But of course that shot could've been from any other airport they've been to. (I noticed in the close shot of the ticket that they used at this particular point shows AA252...)
Assume that they somehow got to London in the afternoon, they had another flight delay which the screenshot only shows "Delayed 2115" (notice in the screenshot the city name ends with "i", so that might be irrelevant anyways). If that is departure time in LHR their final leg may have been TP 367  LHR-LIS 2035-2315 (2128-????)

Teams are not allowed to use any existing personal FF miles, Crown accounts, etc. And that could not possibly be her OWN phone anyway. :lol:

Agree that teams are not allowed to use there personal FF accounts for upgrades, but is there any rule that says they cannot accrue miles on their own accounts? That would explain the FF accounts on that mobile device. I assume it was just borrowed device.

Not while the race is running. Some racers have been able to go back later and file for miles though... As far as I know, you don't get to take any of that info with you. Again, no way is that her phone...
