First of all, GO PANTHERS!!!
I was curious to see what the airlines were doing to increase service to IAH for the Superbowl coming up. Well, so far I looked onto US Airways website for a flight from CLT to IAH. It looks like US Airways bumped up from A319's and 737-300's to A321's and 737-400's. This was most likely to happen no matter who was playing this year because CLT is a major hub for US Airways. Although now that the Panthers are headed to Houston it looks like those planes might not be big enough. I checked on usairways.com this morning and nearly every flight to and from IAH from CLT and connection flights from CLT are already sold out before and after Feb. 1st. The Superbowl is not for another two weeks. Maybe US Airways should mix in a 757, 767 or an A330 somewhere in the schedule.
I figure there will be some charter flights and increased service from Continental and US Airways around Superbowl weekend around the country to IAH. So what can they expect to see?
