Was the Lets Go DU staff on board?

DU really needs to allow students who want to go to Regionals or Frozen Fours get on the charter flights.

Seems a shame to let all those seats go to waste.

Is that at DIA or Centennial? Assume DIA.

DIA.

You can click on the flight track info about the flight. It landed 22 minutes ago.

Xtra Airways is a charter airline based in Boise, Idaho, USA.[1] The airline is certificated by the FAA amd has five 737s

A plane that big can't land at Centennial. Glad they finally chartered though. Most people don't get it - but it really is the best solution, in some cases. Interesting that they didn't charter a Frontier or United plane though. Atleast the boys and all thier crap got there in one piece. time to get to work - they got 2 games to win.

The NCAA handles all tourney charters through established relationships with charter operators who give the NCAA a volume discount.

Makes sense about the NCAA, because the Wisconsin basketball team chartered the same plane last week to go to Albuquerque last according to flight tracker.

At least they didn't have to share a charter with CC again like the '05 Final Five, man that must have been awkward...
