Quoting Shadez (Reply 2): This will be shipping the sad Dolphins to their game in England. I believe I read the Phins leave on Thursday.
Which is it? A cargo aircraft or a passenger aircraft? If the Dolphins are flying someplace I doubt they would fly in a cargo plane, even though that might be kind of fun. They could practice inside while flying.
Are the Phins using a cargo plane to ship over some equipment? That is a lot of equipment?

Well I guess either AA did not have a 767 or 777 to use. I doubt they would give the Dolphins a 777 since they dont have many spare ones. The dolphins did give special to season ticket holders to the game including Air Fare. If this is for the players and fans I dont know. But obviously they need a long haul airplane.
Just Dolphins Please. Dont embarrass your self's to much in London and WIN A GAME. This is just about the only game I care about them winning since they are just about one of the worst teams I ever seen play.

Quoting Mbm3 (Reply 12): I believe the NFL is footing the bill for this charter similar to how the NBA picked up the tab for NW to fly the Magic and Cavs to China.
Yes, NW often gets the league charters pursay for NFL and NBA especially for these kinds of games. I don't know if their is another game in China for the NBA but NW has another schedule to china that comes close to what the other schedules were for the Magic and Cavs.

I was on the ramp when it arrived in Orlando a week or so ago and was working when i saw it depart. Pretty cool to see one of the two (i believe 2?) pax 747-200s left in the Northwest fleet. Btw, burnsie28, where do u get ur info on charter scheduling and routing? I rely on info from within NW, but if theres an outside source id love to be able to check it out.
