    Interesting article about how sports teams travel in Thursday's WSJ. Online version can be found here:

    Private security screenings. Specially fitted planes. Specially selected flight attendants

    Food generally catered from restaurants, not flight kitchens

    Delta seems to have won a lot of the business with an A319 fleet that gets reconfigured outside the summer peak for sports team travel

    I find the specially selected flight attendants most interesting. I guess the normal union seniority rules don't apply. Airlines should consider that for the Global First service, too.

    "It is usually done out of the way of fans and autograph seekers, though the Green Bay Packers sometimes go through public TSA screening at their home airport to the cheers of die-hard fans."

    The people's team! <3

    Can you tell I'm a Packers fan? :D
