Baseball Teams Make Charters Wait...

Fri Aug 30, 2002 11:32 pm

As I have been watching ESPN in disgust this morning, they have been reporting that the Red Sox are making their Delta charter to Cleveland or Cincinatti (I forget which one) and that the Braves are claiming that their charter to Montreal from Pittsburgh has "mechanical" problems.

Interesting to see how quickily each team will get to their intended destinations should an agreement be worked out ASAP...

Interesting to see how the Brewers and Royals get to their destinations - given that each uses YX as their charters.

Now THOSE are some flights that Midex FA's should do the CHAOS(tm) game with. As I understand it, the Brewers and Royals organizations paid for the charter...let the overpaid whiner baseball players book their own ticket home, because if they are going to strike, there's really no need to have their employer pay their way back home. C'mon Midex FA's...do the right thing for a fellow union.

They won't be waiting much longer- ESPN is reporting an agreement has been reached- have they actually regained their senses and won't strike??

Maybe they won't strike. But should we go to any games?

That's funny boeing! According to flightarrivals.com, a Miami Air flight is leaving MKE for Cincinnati in about an hour, so the local team is avoid YX for the day.

The Red Sox are taking a Delta 738 to CLE(flight 9818). Flightview.com says it's scheduled to depart at 12:47PM and arrive at 2:18.
