Browns Reportedly Cause Flight Delay after Trashing Charter Jet




The Cleveland Browns caused a United Airlines flight to be delayed after “trashing” their charter jet back from training camp, according to a report by aviation blog Live and Lets Fly.

The Browns were flying back to Cleveland from The Greenbrier Resort near Lewisburg, West Virginia, where they held the early part of the team’s training camp.

After the Browns flew to Cleveland, their chartered Boeing 757-300 left for Washington, D.C., when it was due to resume scheduled passenger service to San Francisco.

But when it got to Washington, it was not ready to fly, with gate agents saying the plane was “trashed” by the professional sports team that had previously occupied. The flight to San Francisco ended up taking off 36 minutes late. The pilots were able to make up some of that time in-flight and the plane landed in San Francisco 14 minutes behind schedule.

Onboard, the pilot reportedly apologized multiple times, saying it was the most disgusting he’s seen a plane in his career, and explaining that the plane was full of garbage, spilled food and drink.

It’s not clear why the aircraft was not cleaned while it was in Cleveland or waiting to be boarded at Washington’s Dulles Airport.

The Browns were in West Virginia because of construction on their usual practice facility in the Cleveland suburb of Berea, Ohio. They are set to open the 2023 NFL preseason with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game against the New York Jets at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in nearby Canton, Ohio on Thursday night.
