From Insider vids:

Teams took a train to Oslo and then were all on the same plane to Milan.

It looks like teams were on a private plane to Bari :spy:

Is all teams take the June 25 ATH - HAN flight since they sighted in Hanoi on morning June 26 rite?

Yes :) (granted they connected somewhere at least once).

On that topic, the show ignored this but from Insider vids flights weren't pre-assigned. Teams were given the address of a travel agency which opened for them late afternoon after the bungee (probably 6/24) and Scott & Brooke argued (:shock) over a flight which landed 75 minutes earlier which might narrow the possibilities.

If we follow this race report I don't think they can spend June 25 on the flight since:


June 22 - Leg 7
June 23 - Teams being released for Leg 8, private plane to Bari, ferry trip from Bari, Italy to Patras, Greece
June 24 - Ferry arrive on Patras, Leg 8 being filmed and Mike & Liz arrive on the mat at night time.


Thus, we can deduct that:


June 25 - Teams being released for Leg 9, and doing Corinth Canal RB
June 26 - Flights from Athens to Hanoi
June 27 - Arrive Hanoi, and the remaining Leg 9.

But then we get Hanoi sightings on June 26, so there must be something missing that cause the mismatch.

Reading back, I think teams DID race on the 27th; there's a lot of weirdness involving time zones and people posting retroactively but notably the Phil sighting was on the 26th (he likely does the standup for the bridge RB hours before teams attempt the task)

The only thing is, short of being oversold to a ridiculous degree, if teams were at a travel agent the evening of tge 25th there's no reason for them to not all just take the Lufthansa flight that Claude posted.

eta-

This is by no means an exact science (why do I have to pay for historical flight stuff now  :'() but as best I can figure, teams likely flew in on

LH1285 ATH FRA 0625 0825
VN0036 FRA HAN 1355 0550 (+1)

while Scott & Brooke debated getting in on

LH1755 ATH MUC 0605 0735
LH2472 MUC LHR 0845 0945
VN0054 LHR HAN 1110 0450 (+1) (which, last year, might have had an arrival time of 0430 or 0435).

Since it apparently takes upwards of 2 hours to deal with customs and 45 minutes to find the fan dancers on a good day, it fits the sighting of L&L around 0900  :bunny


Funnily enough I suspect teams might be blocked from either flying Aeroflot or connecting through Moscow; teams got to the travel agency on the 25th before sunset, which gives teams enough time to take

SU2113 ATH SVO 0035 0420
SU2570 SVO LHR 0550 0800

to connect to the direct flight from London to Hanoi.

There was a 36 hour Pitstop between  VietNam 2 and Korea.
