Just about every non-emergency, non-commercial flight is a waste of fuel. This is a pretty cool thing

Breaking news: The private jet of the Broncos organization has been seen fueling at Denver International Airport, and sources say that the ground crew was affixing AIM-120 missiles under each wing.

Also, :/ @ it snowing up here. If I'd visited my parents' house in Kennewick they're going over that area a bunch of times...and it's probably better weather. It almost always is.

THE 12TH FAN AIRLIFT IN-FLIGHT TAILGATE PARTY
We know it will be early, but we have a slew of festivities planned for the
four hour flight to Newark. We will provide complimentary breakfast onboard for
everyone as well as a couple rounds of free drinks (for those over 21). We will
also provide each person on the flight with a commemorative 'Russell Wilson
12th Fan Airlift' t-shirt. We would appreciate if you could wear these
in-flight. T-shirts will be distributed at the gate, so be sure to pick one up
before you board the flight. The flight will also have free Wi-Fi so you can
share your inflight experience with your friends on social media all the way to
NYC. We'll be using #12thfanairlift as the hashtag for the weekend. :)

It is a flight test plane, it was going to fly anyway, so why not fly an interesting pattern?

It has been done before, by Boeing (drawing the numbers 747 and 787), Cessna (company logo), and Gulfstream (GV).

haha!  ok.  This might be cool.  I'll see what I can do to keep you all connected to what I'm experiencing via Twitter.  Here's some of what they told us to expect:

NEW YORK CITY
Once we arrive at the Newark airport, we have arranged for busses to take
everyone to the hotel (address in the attached document).

The exclusive game-day party, hosted by Alaska Airlines, begins
at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. We will provide food and an open bar until 9 p.m. Don't
worry if you need to arrive at the party after 5:00 p.m. because you're out
exploring New York City. The dress code for the party is simple: deck yourself
out in your favorite Hawks gear! We will be handing out game-day party passes
onboard Saturday's flight -- you'll want to hang on to those!

About 9 months ago, they lets us not wear ties on Fridays. Then 4 months ago, no ties at all unless meeting with outside people. Still have to wear slacks, button-ups and nice shoes though.

Yes and no. It's a contract dispute which I can't really discuss in detail here. Not related to casino operations in particular, but then again everything is related to the casino in one way or another.
