For whatever reason, UA seems more apt than some other carriers - especially DL - to load its NFL charters at or near the terminal.

I noted a UA 753 at PIT with the Browns charter on Saturday. I wonder if Tampa and the Browns used the same aircraft. Chartering a 753 for CLE-PIT seems like some serious over kill. The Steelers drive to CLE using buses but the Browns seem to usually use the 753. Stadium to stadium/hotel its actually faster to drive than fly.

Where does UA use their 753's on scheduled service? I rarely see them here in HNL which would seem to be tailored made for that aircraft such as the DL 753's.

Lots of teams like to stay together as opposed to 4 charter buses going down the highway and buses aren't that cheap anymore either, also seen buses down and then the charter flight back, some college teams will do that too.
|Quoting Flaps (Reply 9):|
They still have to split up in buses to get to and from the airport. The bus rides to /from the airports in this case on each end are longer than the flight itself.
