Don't forget teams and crews had to clear Customs at ORD. On a busy holiday weekend. With a lot of events in Chicago on this particular holiday weekend, especially downtown.

The sighting at O'Hare was at 11:29am, 2 Jul 2016.

Possibly Anchorage?
30 Jun: Leg 10 Seoul
1 Jul: Depart Seoul in evening...
1 Jul (again): Arrive Anchorage in afternoon, Leg 11 Anchorage
2 Jul: CI5238 from Anchorage to Chicago (0225-1039), Leg 12 Chicago

But Seoul was leg 11. Unless Africs was one leg.

I think the possibility of Tanzania being one leg is higher than production making this a 13-leg race though!
I am 100% sure there was another leg between Seoul and Chicago.


I was wrong? ???
Do we have a 13-leg race? Or did they make the last Pit Stop a really, really long one instead of the usual short one?

I believe that flight was a freighter, not a passenger. I'll post a bit for a non-stop flight from Seoul to Chicago.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Noebie,

I didn't think that any trans-pacific passenger flights stopped in Anchorage any more.

Only freighters now a days. This is mainly because they are loaded a lot heavier than the passenger flights.

They could have done Seoul-Narita-Chicago......that way they at least get on an American codeshare to Chicago on JAJL.

Maybe 1/2 leg in Seoul and1/2 leg in Toyko..........I am sure we will find/figure it out before preimer night

Tokyo Narita airport did offer two non-stop flights on July 2nd.

ANA Airlines NH12 (NRT-ORD)
Scheduled: 1045 (Jul 2) - 0825 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1040 (Jul 2) - 0805 (Jul 2)


JAL Airlines JL10 (NRT-ORD)
Scheduled: 1110 (Jul 2) - 0905 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1110 (Jul 2) - 0846 (Jul 2)

BUT I doubt teams take this flight since teams only sighted around afternoon and both flights arrival time from Tokyo Narita were MUCH EARLIER than the non-stop flights from Seoul to Chicago.

Korean Air KE37 (ICN - ORD)
Scheduled: 1040 (Jul 2 2016) - 0935 (Jul 2 2016)
Actual: 1100 (Jul 2 2016) - 0947 (Jul 2 2016)

Further search there's more flights from Seoul to Chicago but need a airport connection. (IIRC someone said they only started to get sighted around 2.00pm CDT and thus any connection flights that arrived Chicago after 2.00pm is ignored since they would need some time for custom clearance)


Airport connection via Shanghai (ICN - PVG - ORD)
Korean Air KE893 (ICN - PVG)
Scheduled: 0835 (Jul 2) - 0940 (Jul 2)
Actual: 0906 (Jul 2) - 0953 (Jul 2)
OR
China Eastern Airlines MU5052 (ICN - PVG)
Scheduled: 0855 (Jul 2) - 0930 (Jul 2)
Actual: 0913 (Jul 2) - 1022 (Jul 2)
THEN
China Eastern Airlines MU717 (PVG - ORD)
Scheduled: 1140 (Jul 2) - 1240 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1159 (Jul 2) - 1301 (Jul 2)



Airport connection via Beijing (ICN - PEK - ORD)
Asiana Airlines OZ331 (ICN - PEK)
Scheduled: 0840 (Jul 2) - 0940 (Jul 2)
Actual: 0908 (Jul 2) - 0945 (Jul 2)
OR
China Southern Airlines CZ316 (ICN - PEK)
Scheduled: 0810 (Jul 2) - 0915 (Jul 2)
Actual: 0809 (Jul 2) - 0914 (Jul 2)
THEN
Hainan Airlines HU497 (PEK - ORD)
Scheduled: 1340 (Jul 2) - 1320 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1349 (Jul 2) - 1340 (Jul 2)



Airport connection via Detroit (ICN - DTW - ORD)
Delta Airlines DL158 (ICN - DTW)
Scheduled: 1025 (Jul 2) - 1020 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1024 (Jul 2) - 1007 (Jul 2)
THEN
Delta Airlines DL6283 (DTW - ORD)
Scheduled: 1210 (Jul 2) - 1239 (Jul 2)
Actual: 1210 (Jul 2) - 1232 (Jul 2)

I suspect teams most likely take the flight with connection either Beijing or Shanghai (and outside chance connecting Detroit) because of the time they start to get sighted. While production might take the earlier flights including the non-stop flights from Seoul to Chicago.

The train routes from Venice to Bari are:
Frecciabianca 35801 from Venice to Bari, 0657-1432
-or-
Frecciarossa 9407 from Venice to Bologna, 0725-0850
Frecciabianca 35803 from Bologna to Bari, 0942-1521
-or-
Regionale Veloce 2227 from Venice Mestre to Bologna, 0754-0940
Intercity 605 from Bologna to Bari, 0958-1700
-or-
Frecciargento 9415 from Venice to Bologna, 0925-1050
Frecciabianca 35807 from Bologna to Bari, 1142-1721
-or-
Frecciarossa 9419 from Venice to Bologna, 1025-1150
Frecciabianca 35809 from Bologna to Bari, 1242-1823

The Superfast ferry from Bari to Greece follows this schedule:
Depart Bari at Thu 23 Jun 7:30pm
Arrive Corfu at Fri 24 Jun 4:30am
Arrive Igoumenitsa at 6:00am
Arrive Patras at 1:00pm

Although unlikely Volotea does daily flights from Venice to Bari. The flight lands in Bari at 16:25 which gives teams 3 hours to get to the ferry.

Indeed. The teams likely taking the Alitalia flight from Venice to Bari with a stop in Rome on June 23rd.

AZ 1466 VCE-FCO 1230-1335 (scheduled 1210-1325)
AZ 1613 FCO-BRI 1544-1700 (scheduled 1435-1535)

Then, ferry from Bari to Patras as we know.

Would the most likely option be one of the many trains that run via Hanoi & Ninh Binh. These take roughly 2 hours.
