Bigger flights for Packers games

CREATED Sep. 12, 2013

GREEN BAY -- Delta Airlines at Austin Straubel Airport is making some changes to get football fans back home after Sunday's Packers vs. Redskins game at Lambeau Field.

Delta expecting a big crowd wanting to fly out on Monday, so they're bringing in bigger planes to help with the overflow. Some of those plans can hold as many as 150 people.

"They've actually been able to fill all of those airplanes, there's just a handful of seats available right now and I would expect that they would be gone by Sunday or Monday morning when those flights actually depart," says Airport Director Tom Miller.

Leaders with Delta say the larger flights may continue on future game weekends.
