Post Your Ncaa Basketball Charters

Mon Mar 15, 2004 8:00 am

Well, as many in the US know, it's college basketball tournament time!!! The brackets are being released as I type, so if/when you hear of the charters sending off your favorite team, post them here!

Go [Lady] Gophs!

I don't know which company or aircraft type used, but the local news this morning reported the UConn men were delayed flying BDL-BUF. Apparently they didn't arrive until very late last night.
None shall pass!!!!

Looks like Hooters Air is doing the charter for UCF (Central Florida) to MKE out of MCO. Using two aircraft. Not sure what the flight numbers are though.

Anyone know what my red raiders took from Lubbock to New York/Jersey? They probably just went through DFW but I'm not sure. Any info. would be appreciated.

Anyone have any info on the Princeton Tigers? I know they flew out to Denver on Tuesday, March 16...I'd imagine leaving EWR, PHL, or even possibly Trenton (?)

Incidentally, do teams ever fly regularly scheduled flights? If so, I'm guessing they would be relatively low-profile teams that don't get much press?
