    Men's BB Travel?

    Anyone know the type of planes that the team fly on? Chartered or scheduled? size/number of seats? Do ($$) fans sometime fly with the team?

    Don't know about the team, but Fred is capable of achieving flight all on his own.

    Figure a:

    Chartered. MVC teams will fly on a scheduled flight. KU has their own 747. It's different at different levels and schools.

    Thought they had the megabus to KC, door to door.

    They used to travel in bus before mega Big12 deal kicked in. Seems like they are taking chartered flights to pretty much everywhere except State of Iowa travel.

    What about peanuts, are they getting peanuts on the flight? Do we have anyone that's allergic??

    I can't imagine they aren't chartered. Hell, UNI travels by charter the majority of the time and to every league city except for Des Moines and Peoria...

    TSA agents line up 10 deep to be the one who gets to frisk Dreamy. He ALWAYS gets the extra pat down/screening.

    He probably does get the pat down due to his heart device.

    Re: Men's BB Travel?

    Most of the season they've taken charters.

    Mainly N814BB and N813BB, which both have been used by a couple teams in the Big 12 along with our woman's team.

    Since they're smaller aircraft, they can land those planes at Ames Municipal Airport, but did fly out of Des Moines a couple times.

    IICR they took a bus to Lawrence but flew back.

    What we really need to know is the flight number so we can track that *****

    Got a link to that for KU? If not, I'm calling BS. A 747 is way more plane than you would need to shuttle around a hoops team, coaches, and support staff. It would just be far too costly to justify. The other disadvantage would be airport access. When your roadtrips are to places like Ames, Stillwater, Lubbock, and Morgantown, you would be better served by a smaller plane that can get in and out of local airports closer to these schools.

    Maybe they only use it when they fly into Manhattan, er, Little Apple. Netjets.

    They drove to the Big 12 Tournament I believe, but I can post the link for their flight to the NCAA Tournament if I can remember.

    Ya there is no way. An old 747 can seat damn near 400 people. KU may have an ERJ or CRJ that they fly as that makes more sense or a SAAB as N814BB is.
