How Do The Dallas Cowboys Travel?

Fri Aug 19, 2005 1:44 am

The Cowboys are playing Seattle this coming Monday night...I am guessing they will be on an AA 763? Anyone know when they will arrive in Seattle?

Thanks!

When they came in last year to play the offense lacking Ravens they came in on an American 757.

The roster is quite larger in preason, I don't think a 757 will do it. Just guessing.

It can--it's a tough fit depending on amount of gear, but most NFL teams can run with a 757 before the first cut-down date.

Depends on range too, certainly, but most run with a 757-200.

Myself being in the UK was wondering how your sports teams travel in the US? Do teams charter aircraft from airlines? If so would it not make sense for teams who travel alot to purchase an aircraft for themselves? Maybe not brand new but maybe they could pick up a cheap second hand classic such as a 707 or DC-8 for instance?

Just interested in what happens thats all

Not sure what the players will arrive in but I bet I know what Jerry Jones will be in when he gets there...

A friend of mine has flown the Cowboys on the charter. Although this was 7 or 8 years ago, the team took a 757 to ORD for the opeing game of the season on Monday night.

Wtih an exhibition game and a flight to SEA, it's possible that the team might take a 767, due to more players and gear. But even 80 players plus coaches should fit into a 757,
