College football fans en route to see their team play for the national championship were very thirsty.
They reportedly drank the plane dry of its alcoholic beverages on Saturday afternoon.
“About 2/3 thru our flight, the flight attendants announced that they discovered we were a party group,” a source onboard Delta Connection flight 4561 from Fargo (FAR) to Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) texted Eye of the Flyer. “We’d gone thru ALL the booze on board.”
The trip was a specially scheduled revenue flight operated by SkyWest. (Delta does not normally operate non-stops between Fargo and Dallas.) The person taking the flight said there were 54 passengers on the Embraer 175.
Most (if not all) of the passengers traveled to Dallas to cheer on the North Dakota State University Bison, who take on the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits in the FCS Championship Game. The contest takes place at Toyota Stadium in Frisco on Sunday at 2:00 PM Eastern / 11:00 AM Pacific.
Another passenger told us, “One guy had 12 vouchers, and another guy kicked in five for the ‘back’ of the plane.”
How’s that for Fargo Nice?
Now, the flight probably wasn’t catered for a full load of passengers. But SkyWest is the latest “How Much Do Bison Fans Party?” casualty. There are plenty of stories of venues running out of beer early into the evening — and a steakhouse once reportedtly ran out of steak. (Hey, we Bison fans know how to eat and drink well, OK?)
But I’m curious how much boozin’ is going on — given that both teams are from the Dakotas.
Update: Congratulations to the South Dakota State Jackrabbits and their fans. Their team outmatched the Bison and were better coached. Hats off.
