Pretty certain a single charter flight runs from 20,000 to 50,000 dollars. We can pay more for coaches, improve facilities, or a million other things before paying for jets.

I'm an Ivy League sports fan, but no way should schools foot that kind of bill when the programs are pretty much operating on a loss.

Bulldogs1234 is correct.

Let's put it this way. If you pay for the men's basketball team to fly to Ithaca, then what do you do about the women's basketball team? How do you not fly them as well?

If you're flying the two basketball teams, then how do you justify not flying all the other varsity teams as well?

If you start flying athletes to League games, then you're pretty much begging the Ivy League to cut back on the total number of varsity teams. And if you fly any teams to Ithaca and/or Hanover, you're putting a lot of pressure on Cornell and/or Dartmouth to fly everywhere in the conference as a competitive response. Again, budgetary realities will probably lead to a reduction in the number of varsity teams.

And weather affects flights, too. I used to travel throughout NE, my rule of thumb was--if I could drive in less than 4 hours, I drove. Between getting to and from the airports, flight delays and so on, driving was faster. Of course, I flew commercial.
