CNBC.com's Darren Rovell noted AirTran's new partnership with the Falcons making it the team's official airline does not include "actually flying the team," which is similar to the agreement the Cardinals have with US Airways. Rovell noted a team "pays for their charter deals," while airlines "pay for their marketing deal;" the two are not connected. An NFL team "looks for the best price on airline fare for their charters," and AirTran "doesn't even fly NFL teams because their airplanes are too small to handle the capacity needed" (CNBC.com, 8/25).
