Once again, getting the right flights is the most important thing in the amazing race. If you don’t, you can easily drop from first to last and be eliminated. I’ve read on the wiki site of The Amazing Race that there won’t be any non-elimination legs.
Az and Hendy ran into trouble when they tried to find a better flight from the departing city of Vilnius. They managed to find a good flight, but the people who stayed in line, like Rachel/TK got a better flight. In the end, they made the mistake of purchasing business class tickets. That made them miss their flight, because the rules of the Amazing Race state that you can only purchase economy class tickets.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
