The BQs leave on the first flight to Tokyo. Eric and Pink and Charla and Mirna take the second.
At 6:18 PM, the BQs land in Tokyo. The second flight lands only ten minutes later, at 6:28 PM. So everybody gets to the gate in Tokyo in plenty of time for the flight to Honolulu. When they check the departures, Charla and Mirna note a United flight headed for Honolulu. Mirna bitches about how nobody told them about this flight, but it's perfectly possible that since her flight appears to have landed early, the layover may not have been adequate for the system to show this transfer as an option. Mirna and Charla run through the airport with Charla riding on the luggage cart as the wacky bumbling-spy music starts to play. While I appreciate the footage of them running, I'd really rather see some shots of the people they're running past, who are going to be like, "Honey, I know you're going to think I'm crazy, but I think I just saw a blonde pushing a little person on a luggage cart, followed by a camera crew. And no, I did not have too many at the bar." Charla and Mirna get to United, where they learn that the United flight lands at 7:00 AM, so that's forty minutes better than the flight they currently have. It's also leaving in fifteen minutes. So if they landed about twenty minutes early, which seems possible, and if it took them, say, ten minutes to get to United, then the United flight is leaving only five minutes after they were scheduled to land. Nobody's going to book that, which is why it wasn't offered to them, presumably. I don't think the computer will even show anything that requires a five-minute connection. I'd also like to point out that apparently, someone thinks we're not going to notice that we keep going back and forth between Mirna with her hair down and Mirna with her hair up during this "scene" in which she finds out when the flight is leaving. It's all just counter shots, so I can't imagine why they mixed it up like this. Mirna keeps offering "any price you want" for the flight, and now people are boarding the flight she's supposed to be on, so she'd better be careful she doesn't miss the bird in the hand, here. I mean, you can't not admire the effort, but there's risk involved. This seems to be what Charla is saying, kind of, although she also is talking about being seen, and I'm losing track of her point. It's something about "last minute," which is great, because it motivates Mirna to wave her arms wildly and be like, "This is as last-minute as life can get!" I haven't seen arm-flapping like that since James Van Der Beek. On the plane, Dustin says that Charla and Mirna have totally been known to find secret tricky flights, so she's not making any assumptions about why they haven't seen Charla and Mirna at the flight yet.
