WW is a major player in the Iceland Air industry, WOW and Icelandair are the majority of their convenient flights, so the airline is new, but it's not a small, low cost one like an Easyjet or anything like that.


Okay, that helps! And looks like too limited flight options to have 2 groups?

I think the teams had been at the airport for a long time. I overheard the Yale debaters say ďthey had exhausted all their optionsĒ re things to see/sit in the airport as they walked to the gate area. also the two major airlines here are both not usual: Icelandair and WOWair.

Hey everyone, hope I'm in the right thread - I see some posts here and on reddit about TAR flying to Amsterdam tonight. Some users have mentioned that the flight will arrive 20.30 local time (CEST) but the airport website says its landing at 19.50 instead.

In case I go the the airport (I'd have to leave in 40 minutes) - what are the odds I can see some teams and gain some info? Furthermore, would it be appreciated if I look into flights or trains leaving after 19.50 or has that been covered already?

Thanks a lot!

Do we know if ALL teams are on that flight to AMS, or just some?

Because I did not stay and watch them board, it is possible that they were waiting to clear passport control to go down to D gates.

Okay then! Hopping on a bus in about 45 minutes... Should be there at 19.22 with the flight arriving at 19.45. Phone fully charged so I will try and keep you updated. Would you recommend I post pictures or information here or send it to someone first? (If I get anything at all that is!)

You could either post the pictures here by using the attachments part. If you do encounter a problem you could send it to our amazing moderator, georgiapeach.

It's the only flight that will get them into AMS tonight, so anyone who isn't is a day behind.

And the flight was showing as fully sold out before they departed, so I have more than a sneaking suspicion that production was holding a block of seats to ensure they all got on.

And we are sure they are on this flight to Amsterdam? And we are sure itís not just a connection?

Seems kinda late at night to start doing tasks for a leg, no?


Wish we had a pic of their clue (like we did for their rote info to Reykjavic)

EDIT : duh . I completely forgot about HOurs of Operation type tasks and stuff like that. Nvm

I wonder why they flew to Amsterdam and not Brussels? Icelandair had a direct Keflavik --> Brussels today landing at 12:40. Maybe they wanted the leg to take place tomorrow?

Was it confirmed that the last team out was the ring girls?
