Doesn't look like he abided by MCT. Lame.
I can beat that with ease.

So a 5 minute connection is legal? Where do you draw the line?

Either way, not hard to beat him.

I got 47:54. But that's with some dubious 40-45 minute connections that I wouldn't actually book.
Anyone beat me?

I found this to interest me, I was able to route:
LAX-MIA-JFK-FRA-SIN-LAX
But turned out to be about 55 Hrs.

Good luck.
Make stuff happen.
