1st flight delayed

Yes, but they still have about an hour and a half to make the connection, and both are in Terminal 1, so they should be fine.

Based on Chengmd's sighting of the teams at Taipei, we can confirm:

Later flight via Taipei
Luke/Margie
Caroline/Jennifer
Brendon/Rachel
Herbert/Nathaniel

Natalie/Nadiya were seen at the Cathay counter, so it's more likely they made it on the earlier flight.

So Sabah means Kota Kinabalu airport. Looks like the only direct flight they missed and all teams will funnel via KL.

Yeah, there's 2 (correct me if wrong) leaving at 8:25, one getting in 1.5 hour later.

These are the flights I see from Guangzhou to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia:

Malaysia Air 9097/2616    leaves 8:25 AM arrives 4:40 PM
Korean Air 842/673     leaves 9:35 AM arrives 11:00 PM
Korean Air 790/673     leaves 10:45 AM arrives 11:00 PM

I wouldn't be at all surprised if there are better flights (or faster arrivals for the Korean Air flights through South Korea).

It's currently 6:25 AM in Guangzhou.

Earliest FLIGHT is this one, not sure if teams are allowed to fly DragonAir. Remember ferry to HK might actually be quicker but prob they are told to fly.

Sorry guys, we might have the timeframe wrong!

Teams left earlier than expected, and are all expected by Soledad_TAR on Baidu to be on:
AK 1531 from Guangzhou to Kota Kinabalu, 20/0255-0605

That means they have already arrived in Sabah.

One thing that confuses me much is though, people at like 5 AM saying, they're taking taxis to the airport, and now like, they're already in Malaysia? lol

That's because many people assumed Jason's posts on Sucks to be real-time, but actually most of his information for the second leg (and onwards) comes second-hand from Baidu. The original postings for the teams at the airport were made around 1am, and Jason only moved the information to Sucks at 5.39am.

This also means that I had miscalculated, and this was an uncharacteristically short Pit Stop. Huh?

Oh that makes sense, and for the pit stop well they might have considered giving them airplane time to sleep too...

And hmmm this still makes great disadvantage on the late teams if there wasn't enough seats for all of them...

If they missed the flight they'd arrive at 3pm: a 9-hour disadvantage! So I'm pretty sure production did what they could to put teams on the same flight.

This is like less than 2hours flight from my home...   :crybabe:

Sure, a Master's Degree will provide benefits for the rest of his life, but how often to you get to track TAR in person?

Tell him to get his priorities in order.
