The University of Tulsa chartered a Ryanair 763 to transport them to HNL for the Hawaii Bowl, and later back to TUL. I obtained this information via FlightAware.

I didn't think non-US carriers could carry US pax within the US. Has this rule changed? Also, I couldn't find anything on their website to suggest they have any service to the US. How did they make money on this charter if they had to ferry a plane across the pond to TUL?

I'm just curious. I'm sure there's a simple answer to both of these questions.

The charter was performed by Ryan International, which is a charter operator in the US, not by Ryanair, the European carrier.

I havent even looked up or done any research about the flight in question but I'll bet good money the aircraft chartered was from Ryan International Airlines. Not Ryanair.

Unless O'Leary has a few unknown tricks up his sleeve...

Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

Thanks. I should have researched this a little further before making the post.
