New England Patriots first NFL team to have own planes

New England Patriots first NFL team to have own planes

Make that two planes.

The 767 Boeing wide-body jets is clad with the team logo, its red white and blue colors as well as five Lombardi trophies depicted on the tail.

A brand-new plane could cost $200 million.

It might not measure up to the fully kitted out pair of jets the Patriots will use this season, but it's far more memorable than any polished, corporate planes. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said team officials would not be publicly commenting on the acquisitions. CBSSports wrote about LeBron James' recovery process and the difficulty of playing so many games on the road as a top athlete and the Patriots are hoping to improve performance with the idea.

But charter travel has gotten more expensive over the past couple of years, due to the major carriers starting to retire the bigger planes that fly the teams around.

To the victors go the spoils, and the Patriots, winners of five Super Bowls in the last 20 years, are some of the biggest victors in all of sports.

The tweet includes the text "New airkrafts" in an apparent nod to owner Kraft.

The rising cost of chartering flights for NFL teams makes the decision to buy a plane somewhat easier. In addition, New England has retrofitted the planes with all first-class seats.
