If you’re a Rangers fan living in the New York area and you can’t find a ride to New Jersey to catch Game 3 on Saturday, you need new friends. The joy of a subway playoff series is that, well, the home arenas for both teams are just a short train or car ride away. Transportation to all seven potential games is made easy, and airline travel is taken out of the equation. Unless it’s put back into the equation, which is exactly what Delta Airlines has decided to do.
By filling out a quick form on the Rangers website, Rangers fans can enter to win a plane ticket to the Prudential Center to watch the visiting team square off against the Devils. The flight will leave Laguardia Airport at 10 a.m. Saturday morning and arrive at Newark Airport roughly 17 minutes later. Ground transportation to and from the airport is also included along with gifts and prizes. According to CBS New York, Rangers legends Rod Gilbert and Ron Duguay will also be on board, so lucky fans might even get the chance to say “hello” to them before the 17 minutes are up.
Fans have until 5 p.m. ET to fill out the form for a chance to take part in the unique experience. Assuming these fans have to go through airport security, is it even worth it? What happens if the flight is delayed or there’s bad weather? I’d have to be in a real bind to want to go through that hassle for a 17-minute flight. Plus, my ears hurt on the descent.
