2016 NFL Charters

Wed Aug 31, 2016 8:46 pm

I did not see a post on this subject, but does anyone have info as to the charters NFL teams are using this year?

As a quick side note, tonight, 8/31, the Los Angeles Rams will be flying a UA 789 into MSP. This will be the first 789 for MSP, albeit a charter.

Last year the Baltimore Ravens social media outlets had videos of the team flying on an AA 772, so I would imagine it's the same deal this year
Next flight: November 23 BA216 IAD-LHR A388
November 24 BA814 LHR-CPH A320

SWA, UAL, DAL, AWE, ASA, TRS, DLH, CLH, AFR, BAW, EIN, AAL | E190 DC94 CRJ2 B712 B733 B737 B738 B739 B744 B752 B753 B762 B77W A319 A320 A321 A333 A343 A388 MD88

The Cowboys are on AA as usual. They took a 763 to Oxnard, CA for training camp.

I assume it will be a 757 for the regular season, but who knows, the
way the A321's have invaded DFW, maybe AA will use that instead

Titans are still with UA this season. Aircraft will vary. Flight number for the live flight should be consistently 2231.

Last week due to a shortage of 764s they got bumped up to a 772.

With DL retiring its fleet of domestic 763s this week, there will be some changes this year as a lot of teams used to fly them. Will be interesting to see if those teams remain with DL but on other aircraft types or whether they'll move to other airlines.

I saw on the Green Bay Packers Facebook page they took Delta. I couldn't tell the aircraft type from the photos but Flightaware has them on a 763 if I found the correct flight.

> N136DL (DL 763) flew from Boston to San Francisco (perhaps to pick up the 49ers and bring them to San Diego???)

Redskins still use UA. Would be interesting to see if any additional teams switch to DL since they can fly on their growing fleet of fully configured sports charter 757-200's. They are used a lot in the winter for NHL and NBA charters as well as MLB in the summertime. Not used for mainline flights. The configuration is a little bit to small for a NFL charter though. Teams only fly 8 times a season anyways, so a larger normal configured plane is good enough.

I would imagine Atlanta, Minnesota, Detroit etc... will still use DL, and DL will take care of their hometown teams.

The Dolphins use AA out of FLL...typically a 763 or 777. Always fun to see the ferry flight from MIA come in! (Their training facility is 10-15 mins from FLL and the team buses from the facility)

WAY too small for NFL teams, both in pax count and payload. In fact, a 757-200 is really pushing it these days in terms of being big enough for NFL teams.

The Colts used DL 752s almost exclusively last year. So far this preseason they have been on AA 772s. We'll see what happens for the regular season.

UA carries the 49ers. Stadium is near SJC and there was a 753 charter from SJC to SAN on the 31st.

If these are normal configurations how do they figure out seating? While it'd make sense to stuff the big boys up in first class would that not throw off the CG? Just food for thought.

The Broncos took a 767-400 from CVG to DEN after the game Sunday. I also noticed that Atlas Air flew a 767-200 from CVG to DEN around the same time. I'm assuming it had something to do with the Broncos game, but not sure. Anyone know?

This one is perplexing. If you look at the AAL9424 history on Flightaware, it's clear that that # is also being used for the Colts. In fact, for Week 2,when both the Colts and the Ravens were playing Sunday away games, AAL9424 was the Colts' trip to and back from Denver.

Oh, that's funny. The 762s that Atlas flies from CVG are freighters for DHL. (You can input a flight number in FR24 and it will tell you what kind of aircraft is flying; that could help start to answer these questions.)
