The New York Giants supposedly trash an airplane on their way home after losing to the Green Bay Packers in the NFL Playoffs.
Maybe they prefer to travel by boat, regardless of the distance.
The New York Giants allegedly trashed the plane that took them home after Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
The Giants lost to the Packers 38-13 in the NFC Wild Card on Sunday. They apparently took out their frustrations from the loss on the plane ride home by trashing it and leaving it reeking of booze.
Mark Kropf told Sophia Rosenbaum and Bruce Golding of the New York Post that he was waiting to board United Airline Flight 934 out of Newark and “the pilot came out and asked for everyone’s patience, and shared where the plane came from and that the plane needed extra help repairing and cleaning the interior.”
“Another 30 minutes passed and the gate agent told us it was the Giants that destroyed the biz class cabin, and we saw service personnel walking countless seat cushions off the plane,” Kropfwrote in a message on Twitter. “Upon entering the business class cabin, the cleaning scent only partially masked the alcohol smell. I had popcorn, chewing tobacco and other food crumbs on my seat.”

Flight records show that the United Airlines plane arrived in Newark from Green Bay. However United wouldn’t confirm if the Giants had been on the plane.
“We can’t confirm who are customers are, so we can’t confirm the Giants were on the flight,” United spokeswoman Maddie King said.
Flight 934 was supposed to take off from Newark for London at 8:30am but didn’t take off until 11:47am, over three hours late, because of the alleged trashing. British tv weather forecaster Sian Welby tweeted a photo of her on the plane with a “GO GIANTS” banner and also thanked the Giants for trashing the plane and causing the delay.
“Thanks @Giants for trashing this plane so badly it was delayed for 2hrs in a ‘clean up operation’ which meant I didn’t miss my connection!,” she tweeted.

King said that a mechanical issue and not the Giants trashing the plane caused the delay.
