Raiders fans definitely get the party started early.
On Dec. 7 during a three-hour flight from Oakland to Kansas City, a fight full of Raiders fans finished all of the alcohol aboard their aircraft, and the captain got on the PA system to congratulate them for the Herculean task.
Sports journalist and host of Raiders Talk podcast Jimmy Durkin was on the flight to report their success 😛 TAGEND
Announcement on flight to Kansas City congratulates the entire aircraft for wiping them entirely out of liquor. Yep, it’s a Raiders flight.

After some quick backlash about playing their game the next day hungover, Durkin was sure to note that by “Raiders flight, ” he meant the plane was full of the football team’s fans, and the actual Raiders were on a separate flight.
Durkin told Fox News that the fliers were, Not especially rowdy, and that this was, “Pretty standard fare for a flight to a city where the Raiders are playing.
We wonder if the party went as hard on the way home after the team’s unfortunate 13 -2 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hopefully the return flight stocked even more alcohol for the dedicated fans.
