Taking the Plane to the Game

Airlines Woo Die-Hard Sports Fans Who Follow Their Team on the Road; Facing Hecklers in the Home Crowd.

Sports travel—following your team on the road to away games or vacationing at major attractions like the college football bowls that proliferate during the holiday season—is scoring big, travel researchers say. Some aspects of sports travel have even been recession-proof, growing while so many other travel categories slump.

Airlines are increasingly catering to sports fans. Some carriers, including Southwest Airlines Co., AMR Corp.'s American Airlines and JetBlue Airways Corp., have added special flights for some championship games. AirTran Airways advertises in Atlanta as "The Official Airline of the Away Game." American also has an advertising campaign specifically targeting sports fans and their desire to travel to see their team. And flight attendants and ground crews get in on the marketing, too. Southwest paints some ground vehicles in team colors in different cities–Tampa has a Tampa Bay Buccaneers plane-mover, for example. And the company lets employees wear jerseys on game weekends.

When I flew from OC to Dallas for the Cowboys home opener againts the Giants this past season, I has a lay over in Vegas. From Vages to Dallas, the plane was mostly filled with people wearing Cowboys gear.

Expect one woman who came on wearing a Giants jersey. She was booed as she quickly walked back to her seat towards the back of the plane. That was hillarious!

Deadheads were actually expanding their ranks with younger devotees until Garcia's Jones got him. The good old days for Deadheads could be anywhere from 1965-1995.
