Gophers football fans planning to hop on a charter flight to San Diego for the Dec. 27 Holiday Bowl might be out of luck.
The university's alumni association canceled its charter flight only hours after it first advertised the travel package while a third-party charter sold out within 24 hours. A waiting list has been started by Creative Charter for a second plane and seats won't be officially booked until the aircraft is 90 percent full. Otherwise, fans will have to fly commercially.
The alumni association charter offered a two-night trip, arriving Dec. 26 and departing Dec. 28, with hotel and transportation accommodations for $1,829.
Fans said they wanted more flexibility for travel dates because of the destination and timing around the holidays, leading the alumni association to drop its charter package and instead offer to help fans find a commercial flight that best suits their needs.
