Re: 2019 NFL Charters Thread

Any thoughts on the best suited aircraft for an NFL team? B767's? A330's? Dare I say B787's? Most teams use B757/A321's during the season. Some elect to have a larger plane during the preseason (more players). The B744 seems to be an overkill to me, with exception of maybe coast to coast flights, w...
