Atlanta Dream co-owner uses Coca-Cola jets to fly to playoff games

An article by Mark Maremont and Tom McGinty of the Wall Street Journal reveals that Mary Brock, the co-owner of the Atlanta Dream, used a Hawker 800XP jet owned by Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. of Atlanta to make it to the playoff game between the Dream and the Indiana Fever on September 28th of this year.

On at least fifteen occasions and to at least seven different cities, Coca-Cola jets flew to Atlanta Dream game locations.

From the article:

Ms. Brock confirmed that she has flown to Atlanta Dream games aboard CCE jets, but said it was always with her husband, John Brock, and "only if it fits in with what John's doing." She added that the "only way that would happen is, my husband has to go to New York, and…if there's an Atlanta Dream-[New York] Liberty game, we can fit that in."

An interesting fact from the article about the other co-owner of the Dream, Kelly Loeffler:

The other co-owner of the Atlanta Dream is Kelly Loeffler, who is married to Jeffrey Sprecher, the CEO of another Atlanta-based public company, IntercontinentalExchange Inc. ICE owns financial futures exchanges in the U.S., Europe and Canada. ICE's corporate jet, a Gulfstream V it bought late last year, made two trips to cities on the same days as Atlanta Dream away games there.

A very interesting read.
