Roughly 20 NFL teams facing loss of chartered flights

Getty Images

Road trips may soon be getting more interesting for NFL teams.

Per a league source, roughly 20 teams may end up without charter arrangements for the 2017 season. According to Forbes.com, American recently suspended its charter arrangements with six NFL franchises: the Cardinals, Ravens, Colts, Jaguars, Dolphins, and Steelers.

According to the Forbes report, American will continue to service the Panthers, Cowboys, and Eagles.

The reason given for the suspension of service is that the airline lacks the machinery to do the job. A cynic would predict that it’s the first step toward a supply-demand effort by American to throw a thumb or two onto the scale for cost-insensitive clients.

The issue, based on information from PFT’s source, extends beyond American Airlines. Delta is believed to be doing the same thing, and United could be next. The source said that roughly 20 teams currently don’t have a charter provider for the coming season, and that it could become a “real issue” for the league.

    Fly commercial, even first class.

    Not ideal – but you’ll get to where you need to be.

    Owners should dip into the Goodell Compensation Fund to cover the millions in likely new expenses.

  7. grumpysal says: Apr 17, 2017 12:28 PM

    Going to be great seeing some of these teams flying commercial this year…haha!

    Seriously, how can a league that has ~$14b in revenue not get this crap setup well in advance and have a plan B?

  8. RavenzGunnerz says: Apr 17, 2017 12:28 PM

    That’s fine. My Ravens can handle United Airlines. They are as tough as it they come.

    No real loss if United can’t fly any of the teams. The last thing I’d want is my team’s long-snapper or outside linebacker or whoever getting the crap kicked out of them and dragged off the plane and ending up on the injury report that week.

    Maybe it’s time for these teams to buy their own plane.

  16. Jack Gorman says: Apr 17, 2017 12:31 PM

    Seems simple to me. The league, worth billions of dollars, should either purchase or found a charter airline service. That way, they have full control over the planes, personnel and such. Then they should charter their planes out to other sports teams (college), or other people who just want to pay big money to fly on an NFL plane. Would probably be a money maker, or at least break even with what they’re currently spending.

  17. jimmysee says: Apr 17, 2017 12:32 PM

    Southwest! Bags fly free!

  18. elmerbrownelmerbrown says: Apr 17, 2017 12:34 PM

    Maybe their security will ragdoll the players and drag them off the flight too !

  19. murphyslaw40 says: Apr 17, 2017 12:34 PM

    I bet Washington doesn’t have an issue.

    Didn’t Snyder make his first bucks by chartering helicopters in college or something?

  20. bsizemore68 says: Apr 17, 2017 12:40 PM

    Miami owner has the money to buy a plane and hire a flight crew for the fish, then charter out the plane when the fish don’t need it. Bill…p.s. his fellow owners will get the hint and not depend on the major airlines for there business. It may come down to ” Greed VS Greed “.

  21. richndc says: Apr 17, 2017 12:40 PM

    I am going to hazard a guess that if the guy refusing to give up his seat on that United flight was an NFL lineman, that tough guy cop would have made it his very last alternative to drag him out and rough him up. Just a guess.

    Guess it is time for the NFL to tell taxpayers that they need to also buy planes for the NFL owner in addition to the stadium.

    No planes, no stadium, the NFL owner will move the team to a city whose taxpayers will fund the billionaire.

    “Maybe it’s time for these teams to buy their own plane.”

    “The league, worth billions of dollars, should either purchase or found a charter airline service.”

    Its far more complicated than that. Once you own them you have to pay for and provide the pilots, other flight crew, maintenance and other staff. You have to have hangers to store the planes in when they’re not in use. You have to maintain a supply of spare parts. You have to meet all kinds of government regs and given the issues the league has had with their own rule book I doubt they can handle understanding far more complex government rules about operating an airline.

  41. nutpunchnancy says: Apr 17, 2017 1:01 PM

    Not 100% sure, but I think every road game requires two planes per team. One for team personnel, press and their personal baggage, the other for equipment which is substantial.

  42. quadya says: Apr 17, 2017 1:04 PM

    I’m quite surprised that these owners don’t have private jets for the team. I mean come on. Your billionaires. With a “B”

  43. finsphan says: Apr 17, 2017 1:05 PM

    Ohhhh, I would love to see a video of United security trying to get players like Suh, Suggs or James Harrison off the plane because of “overbooking” the flight.

  44. nutpunchnancy says: Apr 17, 2017 1:06 PM

    With their immense wealth, I am surprised the NFL hasnt started their own private airlines. You and I would pay for it of course.

  45. zaphod424242 says: Apr 17, 2017 1:06 PM

    ———–
    They hire some former airline execs to work out the numbers and run it. If maintaining 17 planes (road teams + London) pencils out especially if they charter out the planes when they aren’t being used, they could even make money…they’d be all over that.

    Be careful what you wish for American.

  46. cmtumd says: Apr 17, 2017 1:07 PM

    What’s amazing is that they don’t have airlines throwing money at the league/teams to brand themselves as the official airlines of the NFL.

    Each city should buy their team a plane of their own. And, have the runway, taxiway terminate right at the door to the stadium, the city, bought and paid for.

    It’s a deal for the city! The plane won’t cost near as much as the stadium. Such a deal! Can you say, “stick ’em up”?

    Usually the equipment is sent via truck. With tandem drivers, you can reach any NFL city from any other one in two days.

    For the London games, each team sends an ocean container a month or so in advance.

    I can see the day coming where NFL teams will be buying or leasing their own planes. Most NBA teams do it.
    Granted they use smaller aircraft but think of money teams could save. Purchase price for a used Boeing 737 is around $10 mil, brand new is $50 mil.
    They could use it as a charter during the week and the offseason to gain revenue. You wouldn’t run into issues hiring a part time flight crew. It would be considered a gravy job for them.

    Pilots. There is a fast approaching shortage of pilots.
    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::;
    That’s true but that’s because pilots don’t want to be on duty for as long as the airlines are asking. For a semi retired pilot or an older pilot, this would be a dream job. Think about it. Most flights would be less than 3 hours, I said MOST. Yes there will be some long hauls but the longest flight would be Miami to Seattle or N.E. to L.A. You’re looking at 6 hours.

    I know. My nephew flew for Northwest and left shortly after the Delta takeover. All he does is charters out of Denver. Loves it !

    Collusion, the NFL knows all about this…

    I find it hard to believe the airlines would prefer these guys fly commercial. That’s a hot mess waiting to happen.

    Opportunity knocks.

    If only the NFL were located in a country where there are numerous companies ready to fill that void in the free market. Oh wait, they are!

    Used Boeing 767 suppliers take note as vigorous hand rubbing intensifies. Shekelmasters on tier 1 alert. Owners prepare for 5 hole exploitation of season ticket holders. NFL makes new commercials about “the friendly sky’s” Sheldon Richardson dragged off flight after being bumped… Shlomo is happy. Very happy.

    I’m sure it’s been said but the fans will end up paying for this… good ole American greed… Well NFL how do YOU like it when the tables are turned on YOU?

    A couple of years ago, the Jets took a charter flight to their away game with the Giants…Hey, it was on the schedule!

    I wonder whether it would be more practical for teams to own their own planes. How many seasons before the plane pays for itself in charter savings? Owner could even charter it out at other times to bring in more money.

    A nice scenic train ride would be nice, even buses, beats dealing with TSA for most trips except the longest distances , IMO.

    I guarantee that the owners will find a way for the taxpayers to pickup the tab for this. It seemed crazy at first with stadiums but not anymore. Billionaires don’t become billionaires by spending their own money.

    Billionaires don’t become billionaires by making poor financial decisions like buying an airplane that they’ll use 8 times a year. Some NBA teams have private jets because they’re transporting 15 players instead of 53 and they play 41 road games each regular season.

    why dont these owners just buy team planes for thier money makers to u know make th money

    I remember flying out of somewhere (Dallas, Cincinnati, or Hartford) and seeing a plane with the Panthers logo on the tail and not marked in any other way. This was about 8 years ago, I just assumed they had their own charter fleets or a deal similar to Netjets.

    Looks like Sheldon Adelson got out just in time, before Mark Davis got a chance to ask him to also throw in a charter jet along with that $650 million dollars.

  122. thepedestrianoff says: Apr 19, 2017 11:04 PM

    They have a whole week to get there. Have ’em drive.

  123. doni609 says: Apr 20, 2017 11:08 AM

    United should have plenty of empty planes to supply the shortage. They can’t drag too many NFL players out of their seats.
