The Joys of IFL Travel

"Italy's Never On Time Airline"

This coming Saturday night we play the Doves at their home field in the very liberal city of Bologna at 8:30 p.m.

The Elephants travel via Wind Jet for all of our off island experiences since they are one of our team sponsors.  This arrangement at times rivals another great sports deal from 50 years ago...

"Damn Yankees!"

... the day Joe Hardy sold his soul to the Devil to help the old Washington Senators (now the Minnesota Twins) win the 1956 American League championship!

Point in case, the only flight we can catch out of Catania to get to Bologna in time for the game leaves our fair city at 6:40 a.m. and arrives in Forlí at 8:10 a.m. a full TWELVE HOURS and TWENTY MINUTES before kickoff!

After the one hour bus ride to Bologna we will eat lunch in one of the best eating cities in all of Italy and take in some of the downtown sights all thanks to our partners, Wind Jet!

Sometimes a great deal costs more than you think.

Considering that my brother recently had a NINE-HOUR delay at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport, this may be just enough of a cushion to get you to the game on time.
