Default Should Bob McNair get a Team Plane?

I know this is asking probaly too much from Mr. McNair. But I was thinking about it.
I was watching videos for First Class sections for Airline like Emirates ect...you can see them on youtube

Seen how they have seats that convert to Beds and you can completely lay down and sleep.

You want to give your team as much comfort as possible if they are traveling. Especially a week like this week. I know Sun to Thurs is short transition. Players are still recovering.

If I were Mr. McNair...I would have thought about even renting one of those planes for this game. I am sure he could if he wanted to.
Yeah....its one game...but if it can give players more rest than having to sit up...I would. I know it is not that long of flight....only a couple of hours....but I would want my players completely off their feet....sleeping or completely relaxed.

Maybe I am the only one thinking about this. When I saw those videos on youtube...it got me thinking.

Just a thought......

We ALL know Bob McNair is too cheap of an owner to do this! I know, I read it here, and that has to be the truth!

Most teams fly charter. Many of those planes have been been modified for more room by removing seats.

It's a 3 hour flight, not like they're flying to Austrailia. And they're not flying up there on Southwest Airlines, it's a very nice charter plane.

Teams normally use commercial airlines that have aircraft on stand by for them. They have the exact same seats that we normally use for commercial flights.

Here is a good tracking thread on airliners.net for nfl team charters.

Default Re: Should Bob McNair get a Team Plane?

I wouldn't get an airplane just for the team. It's an unnecessary expense.

Like someone pointed out, most of the flights are around 4 hours or less from IAH.

This would be an entire flight operation (pilots, mechanics, dispatch, ground personnel) for 8 flights a year.

Charter with a major airline is the way to go. They do it everyday. All day.

If he is he's going to have a big game. I don't know what it is but when stuff like that happens it makes you a little bit more sharp.

So maybe a bit of a message being sent to Tate? Or didn't get him a room and seat because of uncertainty he'd be healthy enough to make the trip?

Hmmmm....

Houston to New York: 3 hours.
Houston to Los Angeles: 3 hours.
Houston to Chicago: 3 hours.
Houston to Miami: 3 hours.
Houston to Detroit: 3 hours.
Houston to Atlanta: 3 hours.
Houston to Charlotte: 3 hours.
Houston to Denver: 3 hours.
Houston to Seattle: 5 hours.
Houston to Boston: 5 hours.


One of the advantages of where we live is that we can hop on a plane and be somewhere within a few hours. A 737 is fine for the team. As mentioned, it's not like they're crossing the pond on a regular basis.

I'm a huge Southwest fan. They rock, especially compared to some so called "big" airlines. Don't really get anyone hating them. But that's offtopic.
