Is this flying thing thing only a Australian phenomenon?
Guys overseas do plenty of travel and it doesn't seem to affect them.
Look at the NBA, MLB and NHL where they play up to 6 games a week and often in 3 or 4 different cities per week

If our clubs got the same treatment from the airlines as the American teams do then it wouldn't be such an issue for us either.

Delta takes eight of its Airbus A319 jets out of regular passenger service in October and installs special interiors designed by the NBA. Instead of 126 seats, there are only 54. The plane is segregated into three cabins—the front for players, with 16 seats that fold out into beds for 7-footers, 10 seats in the middle for coaches and 28 in the rear for team staff, security and beat reporters. Even the seats in the rear have more space than normal domestic first-class seats.

For teams, the convenience of postgame charters can ease the grind of frequent travel and keep players fresher for the next game.
