The team is off to Munich on Tuesday to appear in the two-day Audi Cup. On Thursday,
they’ll be heading straight from Germany to North America on board a Turkish Airlines

to Barcelona on May 29 after winning the Champions League at Wembley.
Barça will also be using the plane to return to Barcelona after the last game of their US
tour in Dallas on August 6.
There will be no missing FC Barcelona and Turkish Airlines’ Boeing 777
because it will be decorated with pictures of first team players. The plane can carry 365
passengers and has maximum autonomy of 14,685 kilometres.
The 777-300ER is also the largest twin engine aeroplane in the world and is 19% lighter than
its nearest competitor, which greatly reduces its fuel requirements.
