"Granted, the Yankees have more money than the Seattle Sonics, but when they flew to Japan for their NBA
opening day games with the Clippers, they flew NW

Although flying commercially (anywhere) doesn't seem very Yankee-like, such a charter would be so expensive
that I wouldn't throw out the window the idea of them flying to Tokyo commercially."
The number of baseball players on each team is more than double the number of NBA players on Each team, they are probably three times as many coaches, trainers etc on a baseball team than a NBA team.
Flying commercial is not realistic when they Yankees themselves will probably be sending close to 100 people themselves including Management, that's not even including the press.
