The Steelers and Panthers fly US. The Steelers usually get a B757, the Panthers usually get an A321, but both of those change sometimes.

I know for a fact that the redskins have a United 777, I was it parked at Airside D saturday night for when the redskins were playing the bucs down here in tampa.

US sent a 321 to EWR and a 757 (Star Alliance) to CVG for this past weekends games. If either one of these teams go all the way it could be interesting what US roles out for them.

Quoting LGA777 (Reply 3):

When the Panthers were in the Super Bowl in IAH a few years ago, US used a 762 for the team, and a 757 plus a 321 for the families and such. They also dramatically increased revenue capacity on CLT-IAH for fans and such (beyond what is already an increased schedule for any Super Bowl).

As for what the Panthers (or Steelers) would get this year, I'd imagine the same. In fact, I'll bet they even get a new-colors 767 for a nice photo op. That being said, US has been just unbelievably short of widebodies, for two reason--that AC has taken just way longer than expected with the 333 heavy checks, and that there have been additional birds out for unscheduled maintenance (the 767 engine problem at AMS, the three lightning strikes at PHL). But I still think they'd scrape up a widebody for their Super Bowl team, even if it were to cause big schedule problems. For one thing, they're probably contractually obligated to (though they've probably got an out in a situation like this), but just as importantly, it's great press. And I don't think it'll really be an issue, the widebody situation should clear up by then.

For revenue service, they've already got some 321s scheduled into DTW for Super Bowl week just for the fans that'll go regardless of who's playing. Curiously, all the upgrades are at CLT as of now, PHL and DCA capacity hasn't changed, but I suspect there will be further upgrades as the date approaches.

If the Panthers made it in, I'd look for further upgrades and/or additional frequencies. And if the Redskins made it in, there'd be equipment upgrades but probably not additional frequencies due to the slot restrictions at DCA. If the Steelers made it in, they'd bring the old PIT-DTW route for a one-week special engagement. And if the Patriots made it in, they'd run an RJ or three on BOS-DTW, but only on the very peak days.

Hey, don't make your plans for the super bowl yet, the Panthers still have two more games to win first.

skins almost always fly in/out of iad due to the proximity to redskins park. visiting teams usually use iad as well, though sometimes bwi since it's closer to fedex field. despite the easing of GA/charter flights, i still havent seen anything recent (nfl or other sports) using dca.

As said, Pittsburgh always flys a US 752 or 321. For any fellow flight-tracking junkies, it's typically US 9098 outbound, and 9099 coming back home with victories.

The PIT-CVG 752 was funny this weekend. I was tracking it on FlightAware. While all the DL-C CRJ's only make the mid 20's... the 752 zoomed up to FL360. Got to love the climb of those babies.

I know this is a US thread, but do I have the rest of the teams correct?

AFC

Steelers = US
Broncos = UA
Colts = NW
Patriots = NW

NFC

Bears = UA
Panthers = US
Seahawks = UA
Redskins = US

I think the Patriots use DL

The Seahawks use owner Paul Allen's 757 so it would be really interesting to see what they use if they go all the way

They use UA since as mentioned earlier they fly out of IAD and not DCA

Never under estimate the power of US

Yeah, I kind of blew over the bit about the 763, too! Thanks.

Maybe it was a 767... but it looked brand spankin new, and like a 777.. if we had time, i would have drove up to it.. but unfortunately, didnt really have the time  Sad

maybe it was because the latest livery was painted on it?

The 752 to CVG was in the Star Alliance livery I believe. Great game Pittsburgh.

Yep, and time to show the Colts what hard-nosed, physical football looks like.
