Mirna & Charla's flight had two connections. The "professional advisers" probably thought the less connections the better (all the other teams only had one connection). Also, I don't know that I would call the concierge (who helped one team) a travel professional. I'm sure he knows a lot about travel and tourism but his expertise might not be booking plane tickets.Originally Posted by CEO
How is it, once again, that two teams with professional travel advisers who book tickets every day (the Concierge for O&D and the travel agent on the phone for U&J), cannot find the flight with the 2 hour head-start; but the team with the most drama can find it quick and easy on their own? TAR has used the airlines to gain a favorable (to them) outcome enough in the past to make me feel like I am not crazy for feeling a little suspicious.

Danielle & Eric took a taxi to the cookie task, along with Charla & Mirna. If they were wrong to go on foot, I would think they would have had a penalty (they've shown them giving such penalites before, of course). It is possible that they were given a penalty that was not shown (ie maybe someone kept them from entering the pit stop - though that seems unlikely). I would have thought that Phil would have said something to them as they entered. Maybe there will be a bit at the beginning of the next episode about each team getting a penalty?
