......but season 14 the contestants were sitting around LAX for hours borrowing laptops and what not and we did not have 1 report/sighting Gman. And I don't think TPTB have enough $$ to send teams outside the USA to start I still think we are looking at the LA area. Just my opinion .......

We actually had a soccer team from Australia stalked us around the international terminal at LAX and kept asking us to see if they could take a picture of my mom and me. We kept saying no, we can't. Few of them even knew that I'm deaf. We asked one guy to see if we could borrow his laptop and he was like, "Aren't you guys doing Amazing Race?!" and we were like no.  haha. Even, someone yelled, "There's a team from The Amazing Race!" when my mom and I got off the bus and ran inside. My mom was like, "This is NUTS!" I was surprised to see that none of stuff from LAX surfaced on the Internet after I got home from the race. I guess we were pretty good with slipping in and fly out, haha.

Yeah, That would be cool like I said.
But I like to see more Oceania than just Australia and New Zealand.  How come BVM never have the race visit countries/islands like Fiji, Palau, Micronesia, Samoa, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Saipan, and American Samoa? And if you haven't notice that why on past seasons airports like Macau International and SFO are not used for travel.  In Allstars Leg12, why did the teams fly out of Hong Kong and not Macau and the last legs of seasons2 and 11 why did they fly into Oakland and not SFO!  I don't get it but ARIsrael used Macau International, there are flights out of Macau to China, and other Asian cities.  And from Hawaii they could have flown on United to SFO instead ATA to Oakland.  Sorry but I just wanted to point this out, any way back on topic about the TAR15, the number 1 country I really hope they get to visit is Jordan.  Jordan is travel friendly and has a bunch of places to visit like Wadi Rum and Petra. 

About your Macau Question, I have been to Macau airport multiple times and there are barly any flights. They have a couple fights each day for locations in China/Taipei. If one team accidently misses a flight they will be maybe a couple hours behind if they are lucky but maybe even 1 day behind other teams like the Africa to Poland leg in TAR All Stars. So Hong Kong Airport is Much More bigger and they have many flights so if a team misses a designated flight, they can still catch up. :D Hope this helps... (BTW Macau aiport has 8 boarding gates 4 which require busses while Hong Kong has around 50 gate which most of them do not require busses.

Well Today I was having my 2 hour Layover in LAX. I did lots of snooping and asking ticket counters, flight attentends, and security guards....Nothing at all! Well...some Ticket counter people were giving me TAR 14 info saying they saw what i was describing in November...Like that was any help now lol.

But I did get something, This coukd be a lead....Or just someone throwing me off. Someone said they saw Camera crews with People in Pairs going on 2 different flights to Singapore....Idk if that helps any. Let me know if it does!

Let me know if true! I'm working at Singapore's Changi Airport and could probably find people to badger!

(TAR:I flew into Hong Kong first before taking the ferry to Macau, but that got edited out...)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Well I'm glad I could help in the slightest bit. But I wouldn't take it as Valid Info. The Flight attendant bearly knew What TAR was, I had to describe Teams and Camera crews and other things of that sort, so I don't think it was Legit but like you said "But nothing's Impossible." so Who knows...He might be right. :duno:

Cool!  That would be amazing to go to Singapore.  But I think a lot of people from L.A. would have seen them.

Perhaps they would start at midnight because there would not be as many sightings.

 :lol:

If there are sufficient flights leaving at that time (2 or 3 in the morning etc.) then I think this is definitely a possibility. It would cut down on initial sightings and it if we don't know exactly when the race began than it does make it harder to look for further sightings of other legs.

Realistically there only needs to be at the most 2 flights leaving within a few hours of each other for this to work - I don't know whether this is a possibility however someone who's more airport savvy would have to check.

Flight-wise, it's not a problem - plenty of flights going over to Asia, Australia and Mexico from LAX, and that's only counting the directs.

But would they?
