New England Patriots Buy Two Boeing 767s for Team Travel

UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — The New England Patriots are loaded with talent, and apparently money.

The team, which has won five Super Bowl titles in the last two decades bought not one, but two Boeing 767s for about $10 million each, according to ESPN.

With this purchase, the Pats become the first NFL team to buy their own planes to travel to games.

The wide-body jets feature the team name and logo up front, and five Lombardi Trophies on the tail.

The planes were even retrofitted with all first-class seats, some of which offer a full recline option so the reigning Super Bowl champions can travel in comfort.

Using team-owned jets instead of charter planes could prove to be a savvy business decision.

ESPN noted charter travel has gotten more expensive over the past couple of years. Ten round-trip flights per season can now cost up to $4 million.
