Still with AA, but on a 763 today compared to their normal 752.

Every year I wish I was back at CAK to catch these heavies coming in, and yet I never seem to make it. Hope someone can catch a pic of a 767 there for us!

Do airlines account for the "heavier than normal" passengers when they do their weight and balance? You have to figure that of the 53 people on the roster, plus about another 50 coaches, trainers and ALL THE GEAR that it has to take some sort of a different weight and balance approach.

I am only curious. Specifically you see Arizona Cardinals using Delta and an A332 or A333 ferried to PHX for a game, instead of using home based US Airways and a 752.

Thanks!

Not really.. Just have to adjust for equipment weight AFTER the game due to added water weight "sweat" that is in the towels, shirts, pads, jerseys, pants and such.

When Packers went to Japan a few years back, After the game they had to ship some equipment back separately due to the possibility of over grossing their JAL 744

On a side note NWA did have a special chair that they loaded in First for a US Sumo wrestler when he flew.

I was on a NW 752 Flt to DEN a few years back and it was the return charter for the Packers, The crew was ALL decked out in Packers Golf shirts as they were taking them home after the game.

Must be a reason for them to stick with NW (DL) since you would think US would be cheaper since they wouldn't have to ferry in an aircraft. They don't use the A330 that much in the regular season anyway so could use the 752 or 321 (like the Panthers) and then get a widebody from DL when needed (like the Eagles).

Quoting smoot4208 (Reply 5):

For whatever reason, US does not fly any of the PHX based teams; Cardinals fly DL, Suns and Diamondbacks fly on a Swift VIP 734, and the Coyotes use a private 727 N698SS.

That is great news. N593HA carried the Raiders last year, wonder what the Seahawks plane will be. Would love to see the 332 make a surprise appearance but guess that won't happen.

Being an airline sponsor for a team does not necessarily equate to being selected as their charter operator.

Do they really use the same plane all season?

Sounds as thought NW did things a little different when it came to sport charter weights. Alaska actually does use different weights for sports charter flights. In their weight and balance system there was a setting for sports charter flights. It didn't take into account whether the towels were still wet or not!

Funny, since there is a US A319 with a big Cardinal logo. Anyone know what airline the Panthers charter? I know I saw a clip on the news of the team boarding a DL aircraft (I was young, but I remember it looking like a 757 or 767). That was back in 03' when they won the NFC, so things could have changed.

The Panthers use USAirways. During the preseason, they use a 757. During the regular season they use a A321. Wish they would use a 757 all year!

um, are you kidding me? There is no "adjustments". It is actual weight only. And the average weight that is used on commercial flights is not used for charter flights unless family members are accompanying the team.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I see a lot of people noticing a larger aircraft being used for pre-season games. Is this because the clubs have much larger squads to move, (about 90 players I think) prior to the progressive cut during the pre-season? Once the season starts, I believe that the teams have only 53 players on their roster, so the teams may be able to use a smaller aircraft.

Most likely.

Even then football teams and equipment require larger planes than pretty much any other pro sports team. Most teams will use a 757/767 size aircraft while other sports teams will use a smaller narrowbody. Most college teams though get away with chartering a 737 or MD-80, and sometimes one for the band too.
