This was in todays East Valley Tribune in Phoenix about HP not flying the Cardinals charter flights and NW taking over for this year.

Personally I don't think the cardinals deserve any airline but an interesting article.

Probably because old Denny Green didn't want to switch to FlightFund after being on WorldPerks coaching in MSP for all those years!  hissyfit 


It's funny when I tell people I love planes and they think I'm weird.

Actually this year maybe the best year for the Cardinals since moving to the valley of the sun. So perhaps NWA is part of the new attitude in Cardinals camp!

Indeed. If the Cardinals were to make the playoffs or come close by some strange and unusual circumstance, it would be very tough to go back to HP after NW "carried" them to a successful year.

Probably because HP will be needing their 757s more with the Hawaii routes.

I don't have a problem with the Cardinals flying HP or NW or whoever. The Cardinals ownership ought to be the ones riding their bikes or taking Greyhound to their out of town games.

Somehow I doubt that's the reason...

I'd guess players and coaches don't get miles for chartered flights like that.

Does it have to do with needing/desiring a larger aircraft?

The Philadelphia Eagles get a NW 747-200 series from time to time, that probably rides nice for team charters. The Patriots use a DL 767-300.

I'm sure price was a big factor.

What type will NW use? I would guess a 757-200 or -300.

Cheers
