Last week, a Southwest pilot took to his plane’s intercom system for an unusual reason: He congratulated his passengers for drinking all of the booze on board during the three-hour, twenty minute from Oakland to Kansas City.
Bar Area News Group sports writer Jimmy Durkin was on the flight and tweeted out news of the pilot’s message.
Announcement on flight to Kansas City congratulates the entire aircraft for wiping them completely out of booze. Yep, it's a Raiders flight.

“Not particularly rowdy,” Durkin told Fox News,”and yeah, a decent amount of folks in Raiders gear. Pretty standard fare for a flight to a city where the Raiders are playing.”
It’s unclear when the passengers finished off the plane’s booze, what liquor went first, and exactly how much alcohol was consumed. But it’s a good thing the passengers started drinking early—their beloved Raiders ended up losing to the Kansas City Chiefs 21-13.
We hope there was plenty of alcohol on board for the return flight.
