I was just checking FlightAware and noticed that there were 3 scheduled "charter" flights today (10/29) from DTW-SFO on United. One B764, one B744, and one B739. I know that the SF Giants probably flew back this morning, due to the to them spending last night partying it up. I assume they took the the B744 back to SFO.
I am wondering if all 3 of these flights were charters for the game or is it by chance that UA was getting these flights out of Hurricane Sandy's path. Was ORD and CLE too crowded because of all of the movement of aircraft from the east coast to inland airports?
