What else could TARCAN book besides economy/coach class like seemingly every other franchise?

Air Canada has flex and comfort fares. Flex is more expensive on certain routes.

Except both fall under business class and would thus be inaccessible for use by TARCAN racers.

When is The Amazing Race going to get back to normal again with the tasks, departure times, flights, speed bumps, u-turns, etc?

Because since Season 33 post-COVID, many things have changed.

Phil's been asked that again and again on Twitter. His answer is basically... when they feel safe enough to ditch the charter.

So probably when there's no more restrictions on any place at all.

Yay!! Looks like everything's going to be normal like usual when they film season 36.

And probably an All-Stars one next for season 37 and 38, but they should have teams starting all the way from 25 so maybe one team per previous season.

Incidental timing with President Biden's intended declaration on the eleventh of May.

Very random question - I'm rewatching TAR Aus 6 Ep 12, and at the start there's a warning that states "Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this program contains images, names and voices of those who have died."

Do we know what this is referring too? I tried looking up natural disasters or incidents that occurred but couldn't find any information on it?

I think the question is which dead person(s) appeared in the episode, and I was wondering that myself as well.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

Stuart talked about both of his deceased parents with photos shown.

What caused so many dominant winners to emerge during the show's middle era? The earlier era had a few dominant winners, but never a team winning 6+ legs. Two won 5 legs (S9 and S1 winners), but none more.

I think it's a mix of factors - the casts lent themselves to only a handful of capable teams (plus there were no real 'alpha male' teams between TAR 11 and TAR 19 aside from Jet & Cord who had their share of flaws as racers), the legs were shorter and easier, there were fewer legs involving self-driving or complex travel, and the teams themselves were more equipped to handle the TAR metagame by preparing more, studying during the race, and being efficient in racing in general.

Do eliminated teams still run "decoy" legs? My dad asked me what happens to eliminated teams, and I explained to him how early eliminees go to sequesterville while later eliminees will run decoy legs. But then I realized I wasn't sure if they still do the decoy legs or not. And if they don't, then what happens to late eliminees?

Someone else might have a better memory, but the last sighted time I remember was season 21, when the Twinnies were "racing" around Manhattan in flip-flops.
