Any idea who the two NHL teams might be? Wild and Avalanche maybe?

Sure would be nice to get the Av's back on the red-tails, they flew NW until NW got rid of the 727 charter aircraft.

:roll: Seeing how its still no guarantee that they will be approved they are doing whats in the best interest for NW, secondly, the contract will just roll into Delta anyway.

DL does alot of sports charters... they'll be glad to have this contract. I wouldn't be surprised if these planes are used for MLB charters as well.
