There's marginal upside the players of a CFL team in a charter, even with Montreal being on the "far right" of all teams which would not necessarily mean more travel miles but certainly longer trips. It's more critical for other sports who need to "getaway" so they can play the next day or day after to get to the next town quickly....football teams are almost always going home and the players have the whole week to rest up.

Given it's a charter I'll assume they team will now fly home immediately after all games, saving a night of hotel (and fun for the players), even if it means arriving at 4am on what will essentially be a red eye flight. A charter would certainly allow some of the larger players a bit of room which is always a positive if you're over six feet tall and weigh more than 180 lbs, which most planes seem formatted for. I played University ball back in the 70's and always chuckled when 40 players, some pretty big, squeezed into some of those DC-9's....the other passengers' eyes would widen as the team approached the gate wondering if the plane could handle the load....and that was 40 years ago when players were generally smaller.

Pros and cons of course but for most CFL teams watching their pennies, charters will probably remain the exception, not the rule.
