Racers were at EVA Air, perhaps they transit in Taipei?

Can I get a timeframe? I haven't seen any spoilers other than Chateau's yet. Here're the Eva Air options:

BR 11 from Los Angeles to Taipei, 16/1550-17/2235
BR 15 from Los Angeles to Taipei, 16/2245-18/0530
BR 1 from Los Angeles to Taipei, 16/2325-18/0610
BR 707 from Taipei to Guangzhou, 18/0810-1015

Here are some alternative options with connections, with both legs on the same airline:

CX 883 from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, 16/2220-18/0600
CX 6782/KA 782 from Hong Kong to Guangzhou, 18/0800-0855

CA 984 from Los Angeles to Beijing, 17/0040-18/0530
CA 1351 from Beijing to Guangzhou, 18/0805-1055

OZ 203 from Los Angeles to Seoul, 17/0030-18/0650
OZ 369 from Seoul to Guangzhou, 18/0840-1130

If the teams are being sent on flights into Taipei, and there aren't direct flights from there into Guangzhou, then that is how production is managing the Racers to get Phil, Bert, and Elise in ahead of the teams. (Especially if there is a direct flight out of LAX that the trinity can use that the Racers weren't allowed to use.)

China So #328 dep 1030PM 11/16 is one flight per Chateau.

Racers were lined up at EVa air...can we see the connections via Taipei??

Timeframe? It is currently 640PM in LA.

^ Read the thread :funny:
Know you're busy today love!

Agree with Schnauzers; Production probably on the 10.30pm direct flight (arriving 5.40am), and I'm thinking the teams go via Taipei (arriving 10.15am) and Seoul (arriving 11.30am).

Assuming the first sightings were of the teams at Eva, that'd make it the earlier flight available to the teams. That makes Hong Kong less likely. Going through Beijing means customs has to be cleared in two separate cities for the two itineraries, so I'm less inclined to bank on it too.

As Airlinesguy pointed out on the Speculation thread, they're the same flight on code-share.
(Double the price for the same flight! Delta must be making a killing!)

Sorry Neobie. I couldn't understand your itinerary... and yes, up to my eyeballs!! :lol:

The flight I posted via Chateau is apparently confirmed. Could you just do ONE flight on EVA that gets in close to that one please? Thanks!!

LAX TO TAIPEI - same as Neobie

FIRST FLIGHT
22:45 LOS ANGELES (Terminal B)
05:30 TAIPEI (Terminal 2)

SECOND FLIGHT
23:25 LOS ANGELES (Terminal B)
06:10 TAIPEI  (Terminal 2)

2 flights from Eva out of LAX tonight, enough to host all 11 (or 12?) teams. And they will get connection from Taipei to Guangzhou... hang on.

Same information as Jobby.

Quote
BR 15 from Los Angeles to Taipei, 16/2245-18/0530
BR 1 from Los Angeles to Taipei, 16/2325-18/0610
BR 707 from Taipei to Guangzhou, 18/0810-1015

Either one for the first leg from Los Angeles to Taipei, but both connect to the same second leg onwards to Guangzhou, arriving four-and-a-half hours later than the direct flight.

The first flight arrives early though; maybe they'd be held at the airport upon arrival by TPTB?

Slightly off-topic:
If I didn't just start my new job I'd be on a flight right now to Guangzhou that arrives before even the direct flight! (It's not even that expensive.)
Let's try to figure out where they'd be next weekend (hopefully still this corner of the world) and I'd be there...

The flights at the counter that I noticed were BR15 and CX883.

BR 15 LAX-TPE 2245-0530+2
CX 883 LAX-HKG 2020-0540+2

So From Taipei presumably

BR 707 TPE-CAN 0810-1015

From Hong Kong

CX 6782 HLG-CAN 0800-0855

So Hong Kong Flight should get in an hour and 20 minutes ahead of Taipei

For those interested to track flights in real-time, Flightradar24 is a good site.

Currently I'm following EVA Air Flight 15 enroute from LAX-TPE where some of the racers are on-board.   :)

EVA 15: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/br15/ (B-16708)

CATHAY 883: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/cx883/ (B-KPW)

It is to be noted there may not be coverage over some areas and the tag above would show "PLAYBACK" instead of "LIVE".

Me too! It's only 4 hours away from Singapore! :lol:

Usually the first leg flights are fixed right? Any chance they might get into Guangzhou on afternoon flights?

No because the only flights from Hong Kong to Guangzhou are the morning one

CX 6782 0800-0855

or evening ones

CZ 634 1840-1950
CX 6786 2020-2120.

Taipei has two afternoon flights to Guangzhou

CI 521 1415-1615
CZ 3098 1430-1635

but the morning flight

BR 707 0810-1015

makes much more sense, schedule wise to have daylight while filming, and airline wise as they share the same airline as well as matching closely with the other Hong Kong Flight.

So the presumed flights earlier should be the correct flights.
