conference room and two pilot lounges into game viewing areas with large televisions, couches and unlimited
catering for pilots who were waiting for passengers. Upon arrival, customers were greeted with a Jet Aviation gift
bag including items such as ear muffs, gloves and a plush blanket for them to stay warm during the game.
