    They have no checked luggage. Everything gets X-rayed or searched.

    Ok, I don't know if this bothered anyone else, but I think this was the first race where they didn't actually circumnavigate the globe. It looks like they were pretty close to completing a 'great circle' type of route around the globe, but they didn't travel 'around the world' in the traditional sense (i.e., crossing all the longitude lines).

    It's small, but it was a little disappointing to me.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. Only hypothesis I had was that the tsunami happened during the race (or maybe just before) and it affected where they plannned to go. Maybe it was easiest to re-route back through Europe.

    enjoy,

    I had a deadly shirt, belt and shoes. I was also a little dirty so I could have used my armpits of stench to take down the pilot.

    Now then, Micheal, let's pretend I was a terrorist. I'll have a great big turbin, a big beard and my name will be Habib. I will also speak heavily accented english. What do you think my odds would be of getting that treatment that I did?

    Face it: airline security sucked, it still sucks, and it will continue to suck. Your only real recourse is to be ever vigilant.

    As for the TAR, since neither you or I know exactly what happened, it is mere conjecture to speculate on what kind of "security" U&J got. As for the gantry being brought back, I'm still trying to figure out how that was some kind of security risk and not just good customer service.

    Excellent point, but I suspect that the race finished up before tsunami. The London leg was awash in Yule decorations and I doubt that they would have had the contestants (let alone the host and staff) on the road over Christmas. The tsunami was 12-26, wasn't it?

    I was just pointing out that we have yet to see a commercial flight pull a stunt like that and it just so happened to save the last half hour of the finale and give U&J a HUGE second chance. If that happened with a commercial flight during the middle of the race U&J don't get on that flight.

    I'm still happy about it, I won the HTF challenge thanks to that move. [​IMG]
