The Dolphins are one of many NFL teams trying to secure chartered flights for the upcoming season, according to reports by Forbes and Pro Football Talk.

Forbes published a story this week with confirmation that American Airlines has ended charter service for the Dolphins, Cardinals, Colts, Ravens, Steelers and Jaguars. The airline will continue working with the Panthers, Cowboys and Eagles.

That information came from an internal memo obtained by Forbes, and an American Airlines spokesperson confirmed that the company is eliminating some charter arrangements.

The Dolphins did not respond to an inquiry about where they stand on the American Airlines situation and what they intend to do for air travel in the upcoming season. The next time the team would require a plane is for its late-August trip to Philadelphia for a preseason game.

PFT added to the report by noting that Delta is doing the same thing and United is possibly following suit, which would leave about 20 teams without chartered service in place.
