MLB/NFL/NBA Charter Planes


I saw the Tigers on SWQ5073 on April 7th, then nothing til today. Not sure what they are up to, but these SWQ flight numbers do not remain the same from flight to flight, so you’ll just have to keep an eye out for them. This looks like today’s flight home from Kansas City.



I think I’ve figured out the flight numbers for the SF Giants team charter this year:
EAL5721: Any flight between SFO & 1st city of any given road trip.
EAL5722: Any flight between cities on any given road trip.
EAL5729: Any flight home to SFO from final city on any given road trip.


Im looking for some of my MLB team flight numbers I don’t have for this 2016 year.

Arizona Diamondbacks
Baltimore ravens
Detroit Tigers
Los Angeles Dodgers
Oakland athletics
San Diego Padres
Texas rangers
Toronto Blue Jays

Any ideas on these flight numbers. Thanks


These are all listed one page back in a few different posts, with the exception of the Diamondbacks. They are AAL9430.


what is usa mens hoops using plane wise during this rio prep/run up tour?


I can’t find the flight from DC to Miami on Sunday night Aug 7. Anybody got ideas?


The tail number for the Giants charter plane is N277EA. The plane made the flight from Miami (where the airline is based) to DC, but there wasn’t any listed charter flight for the plane back to Miami. So my guess is that they had to use a different flight that wasn’t listed.


Seems like it. Even for today, 8-10, no charter flights between Miami and SFO. Go figure


They are back to their original flight numbers for today.


Do NFL teams use the same tail number every year? If not, can someone please list the 2016 NFL team tail numbers?..thank you

Does MLS have numbers or are they on commercial.


Apparently the SF Giants took a Delta charter 8892, 767-300 to JFK for the NY Mets playoff game. A change for a bigger airplane to include families I would guess.


NBA 16-17

Washington Wiz r using DAL8944
