On Sunday, the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams will meet in Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII. The Rams flew to Atlanta on board a chartered American Airlines jet.

The New England Patriots, on the other hand, flew in on board its private jets complete with the team's Lombardi Trophies painted on the tail.

In 2017, the Patriots took delivery of two Boeing 767-300ERs for use as team planes. One serves as the primary jet while the other one will act as the backup.

For the Patriots, the 767s, known affectionately as AirKrafts in reference to team owner Bob Kraft, makes a tremendous amount of sense. With major airlines moving away from private charters in favor of more profitable passenger operations, professional sports teams have been scrambling to find large jets to get them to their away games.

According to Airfleets.net, the two 767s, N366AA and N39367 , were both delivered to American Airlines in 1991 and retired in early 2016. Both planes are powered by General Electric CF6 turbofan engines. Flight Global's metrics show that each of the 27-year-old planes is worth around $5.5 million on the open market. The team did not disclose how much it spent to refurbish their interior accommodations.

Here's a closer look at the Patriots' new Boeing 767-300ER AirKrafts.

Last week, the New England Patriot arrived in Atlanta on board one of its team 767-300ERs.

In commercial service with American Airlines, the 767-300ERs were configured to hold roughly 220 passengers. With the Pats, that number will be far lower.

According to the team, the plane is outfitted with seats equivalent to those found in a domestic first class cabin, but with an extra five inches of legroom.
