I was just wondering what baseball teams use which airlines. For instance I saw my favorite team, The Chicago White Sox, come in on Sunday night from Detroit @ MDW. They are chartered by United Airlines, and United doesn't fly out of MDW, so as soon as I saw the A320 parking into the General Aviation Area, I knew it was them and saw them coming out of the plane shortly after. There was a North American 757 parked next to it and I didn't know what that was for.


Go White Sox!!!!

Imagine my surprise when I saw a United A320 on approach to BKL last year!

For planes in a two-class configuration, who get the best seats? Do they go to the coaches or (at least some of) the starting lineup? (Perhaps there's a stipulation in a player's contract, I can see the story in the papers: "[Player] has signed a 2-year, $10m contract which includes bonuses such as airline travel in first class. The player said only, "I love the free drinks and those warm mixed nuts."

I believe team captains and veterans get first choice of First Class when flying in two-class configuration.

I think it also depends which side of the country you're on. Anytime the Red Sox come to Seattle and then play a series anywhere on the west coast following that i.e. California, they've flown on Alaska Airlines.

Do the Seattle Mariners still sue the "Wonder twins", N756AF and N757AF, Paul Allen's personal 757's? I know Mr. Allen doesn't own the Mariners, but that the Mariners somehow had a deal a few seasons ago to use these birds...

What do the Chicago Cubs use? I remember several years ago some of the troublesome players on the team didn't want to fly on the charter and they flew commercial or on their own chartered aircraft. I once remember flying back to ORD from PHL (after heading out there to see the Cubs in the new Phillies stadium) on an AA F100 and one of the Cubs outfielders was flying first class.

I wonder if any of these charters have been affected by the recent airline's ceasing operations and airlines grounding entire fleets.

I've always wondered what would happen if B6 became the official airline of the New York Yankees, or even worse, put A-Rod on their planes and signs. Would the Boston customers stray away, even if they are also the official airline of the Boston Marathon? Or would people not care? It seems like the airline that charters a team is the largest (or one of the largest) airlines in their city.
