    I just read its breaking it into multiple legs and each leg is going to take nearly a day to go a couple hundred miles. That thing is slower than molasses.

    Going that slowly, an unexpected head wind could double your travel time to get from one airport to the next. I could see some very tense moments as the sun started to set. I wonder if they have solar powered flashlights on board.
