College Football Charter Finder 2010


#1

This is intended to be a companion thread to the College Football Charters 2010 thread. This thread is intended to give readers some hints about how to find charters for their favorite college football teams, based on information collected so far this season. Rather than burying this information in the middle of the previous thread, I thought it would be more helpful to start a separate thread on the topic.

If a team is not listed below, it is because I have no data on that team yet this season. I will update this table as more data comes in. Corrections or additions to this data are welcomed.

Some airlines (e.g. AAL, COA, DAL) use the same flight number(s) for a given team consistently for the entire season. Where this is the case, the flight number(s) for a given team is/are noted. Other airlines vary the flight number; the giveaway for team charters is often a fairly high 4 digit number at their home airport. (BSK is a notable exception here.)

Sorry for the use of the code tags below, but this forum software does not really give me the ability to insert tables into posts, so I am using the code tags to create a preformatted table using a fixed font. I am open to better suggestions as to how to do this:

Hey thanks, nice list.

I sometimes forget what airport some of the teams fly from and this will be a big help.


#3

Illinois is on BSK, and occasionally on Delta.


#4

Thanks, everyone. I’ve added a note about Illinois and adjusted the formatting a little for (hopefully) better readability.

I think most of Illinois’s games have either been at home or within bussing distance, so I haven’t seen them on any flights yet. Will watch their upcoming road games and see if anything has changed since last year.

Most changes this year involve teams that used to fly on NWA now flying on DAL due to the merger. Otherwise, Army and BYU are two schools that come to mind which have changed airlines since last year.

Thanks, look for them next Friday (October 8th) into UNV.
