Airlines Add Seats for Bowl Championship Games
For college football fans, airlines have beefed up the number of seats they are flying to accommodate traffic to Bowl Championship Series Games in late December and early January.
Delta Air Lines says it has added more than 4,500 seats for travel to 20 college football championship match-ups including the Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl.
The added capacity is on the Birmingham-Phoenix, Portland-Phoenix, Eugene-Phoenix, Madison-Los Angeles, Milwaukee-Los Angeles, Oklahoma City-Phoenix, Roanoke-Miami and Columbus-New Orleans routes.
Alaska Airlines also opened up about 790 seats on its Seattle-San Diego route for Washington Husky fans to get to the Holiday Bowl.
With major airlines shrinking capacity so much since 2008, the extra seats are expected to go quickly.
