Ummm, how?!? Does this qualify for a Homer Simpson "D'Oh!"?

I wish it took me 54 minutes to fly me from the US to Taipei last month. It took me 14-1/2 hours to get from LAX to Hong Kong and another hour and 15 minutes to get to Taipei. Quite a mixup eh? I don't think those itty bitty little planes can make it that far.......
I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....

Me too. They should have just put the kid on the non-stop SBN-TPE when they arrived!  Big grin

Unaccompanied minors can be a handful.

All's well that ends well. Thank goodness they got it straightened out.

That sounds like fun though. An extra take-off and landing!

Either one could make that flight without extra tanks or a stop. It is 6511 nm and according to a.net the G-V has a range of 6500 nm and the BBJ has a range of 6200 nm.

Maybe there is an update?

I know it was hypothetical and a trip in either would be awesome, even with a stop or two. Just thought I would throw some more info in here.
