Jayhawks bball team flies like kings on trip to South Korea

The Kansas Jayhawks basketball team will be representing the United States in next week’s World University Games in South Korea. The one problem with the Games being in South Korea is that there is a lot of miles between Lawrence, Kansas and there, which means it will be a long flight.

The Jayhawks aren’t too worried about that after they found out they would be flying pretty comfortably for their thirteen hour flight.

College Spun shared some a video and some pictures from the players’ Instagram accounts that show just how comfortable the team will be for their long flight. I have to say that I am pretty jealous.


I don’t know about you, but that looks WAY more comfortable than any first class section I have ever seen.



I have only flown a handful of times, the longest being a six hour flight from Hawaii to Phoenix. I thought that was awful, so I can imagine how bad a thirteen hour flight would be. My flight would have been much more comfortable if I had THAT much leg room.
