Word from colleagues in Dallas has it that there's a British Airways/OpenSkies B752, G-BPEJ, parked at DAL. Anyone have any ideas or just want to start fueling some BA / WN rumours?

It is a charter for the Hockey team. It is on its way to ARN via KEF.

Must be for the St Louis Blues. They have a game tonight in Dallas and are scheduled to play an exhibition game in Linkoping, Sweden on Tuesday, so must be leaving right after the game.

OpenSkies also had a charter from ORD to ZRH for the Chicago Blackhawks and their games in Zurich.

It doesn't make sense to use DAL as the airport to pick the team up. DAL is not an international airport, so they will need to stop in BOS or BGR before they cross the Atlantic. Does the B-757-200 have the range to fly DAL to Europe non-stop. BA has facilities at DFW, just 17 miles away, they fly a daily B-777-200ER there, and code share with AA at DFW, too..

This was the Blues flight...
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/A...C/history/20090927/0342Z/KDAL/BIKF

To Stockholm via Kevlavik.


Not sure how the Customs issue was handled, but maybe the DFW agents were sent to DAL to clear the flight out.

Those are the L'Avion seats in that video... I thought BA were putting the regular Openskies seats into the former L'Avion fleet?

We leave international all of the time from DAL. Only requirement is getting a stamped Gen Dec prior to the flight leaving from US Customs. DAL-KEF in the 757 is a good ways but not completely impossible. We normally go DAL-YYR and then on into Europe when in 801DM.

Fly safe,

They can leave from DAL, plus DAL is much closer to the AA center than DFW. They only time you see the Stars or Rangers B757 come to DFW is when they arrive from CYYZ.

The wings may have to leave their DC9 at home for that flight

Really? The teams don't go through pre-clearance like other passengers?
All six Canadian NHL markets have airports with customs pre-clearance.

But I would expect quite a few of those flights to depart fairly late at night following games when pre-clearance is closed, as do some redeye scheduled flights. In those cases, flights would obviously have to clear US formalities on arrival.

Bingo....

I've returned from Mexico and cleared at DAL before as well.
