Delta Air Lines canceled a commercial flight this past Sunday to accommodate the University of Florida men's basketball team.
According to the Gainesville Sun, the Gators' charter plane was grounded Sunday afternoon for maintenance as the team was trying to get to Connecticut for a Monday night game.
Delta said passengers of Delta Connection flight 5059 were placed on other flights or given vouchers.
A Florida basketball spokesman told the newspaper he wasn't aware any commercial passengers were getting bumped to accommodate the team.
