Well everyone,

The conference tournaments are now over, and the field is set. Let the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's basketball tournament begin, and post the tournament charter flights here!

I'm trying to get a handle on my Alma Mater-the New Mexico State Aggies. They won the WAC tournament on March 15 in Las Vegas, but I can't tell if they came home. If they did, it was not on a charter flight. My guess is that they will depart LAS directly for GEG, however no LAS-GEG charter has shown up yet, and for that matter, neither has an ELP-GEG charter

Four days is a long time to sit in Spokane, especially since the distances are not (relatively) that great. A Thursday game is usually a Tuesday departure.

Whomever the Aggies end up flying with I hope the have some first class seats available for Sim Bhullar. That's the largest human being I've ever seen!

For reference, the player on the left (Alex Kirk) is 7'0" and about 250 lb.

See if you can convince the city of Las Cruces to make the infrastructure upgrades necessary to handle an aircraft larger than a Beech 1900 or an RJ  

Anyhow, still can't find NMSU's charter

The NMSU charter didn't show up on flightaware until right before departure(!). Wondering how last minute everything was...   Usually, you get probably 24 hours advance notice in flightaware. That makes me wonder if Michigan is in a similar situation, or maybe Sun Country's dispatchers aren't loading the outbound charter flight plan until just before departure, or their flight crews are doing it old school: calling clearance delivery and reading out the flight plan to the CLNCDLR controller

It all depends on when they file flight plans, which differs a fair bit from operator to operator. I don't think there's really anything to read into it.

Interestingly, this looks to be the same plane that took Iowa home last night (the repo from CID is here: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/F...history/20140320/1545Z/KCID/KDAY). I wonder if they set things up this way because Tennessee was close enough to drive home if it lost.

Yeah, I noticed a distinct lack of "loser" flights posted. Remember the good ol' days, when Champion Air had the contract to fly home the losers? I always found it ironic that losing teams flew home on an airline named Champion...

The "first round" sort of had loser flights -- there were flights to the "second round" sites for the winners and loser flights for the rest. It's an odd round that way. The other rounds either have winners staying and losers going home or everyone traveling so there aren't really loser flights.
