NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hey New York Rangers fans, need a lift to the game on Saturday? Delta Airlines is offering fans with tickets to game three against the New Jersey Devils a free charter flight that will leave LaGuardia Airport at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning for the 17 minute trip to Newark Airport. Ground transportation will be provided to the Prudential Center for the game and back to LaGuardia after the game. Rangers alumni are expected on the flight as well. Snacks, gifts and prizes are also part of the deal. “It’s obviously a very unique flight,” Delta spokesperson Leslie Park said. “We thought it would be a great way to get some buzz going and get some Rangers fans really excited for the game on Saturday.” Hopefuls had until noon Thursday to fill out a form on the team’s website. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fans must have tickets to the game and be able to present valid identification.
What kind of fucking assholes take a chartered flight to go to a sporting event? Thats about as bougie as it gets. The actual Rangers are probably heading over in a bus and some of their fans are gonna be cruising at an altitude of like 200 ft, maximum speed of 80 MPH in a P.J. Makes sense.
You know how many Rangers and Devils fans are gonna be crammed into Penn Station Saturday morning, rushing for a NJ Transit train, all together praying these dickheads crash in the Hudson? Maybe not like a fiery death but like a Captain Sully situation where they land in the water and have to swim their asses to shore.
PS – If I’m a Devils fan and I see a bus load of Rangers fans getting off of a shuttle from their private jet I am throwing rocks at their faces. (Note: if anyone gets hit with rocks on Saturday I never said that)
PPS – This charter flight idea is actually awesome and I would have done it in a heartbeat if I had tickets.
