RPI Team Goes Above And Beyond For Chick-Fil-A
The RPI Cross Country/Track team wanted Chick-Fil-A and was willing to go to Florida to get it. Well not really but they were willing to buy a ticket to Florida to get into Albany International Airport to get Chick-Fil-A.
In a story first reported by WTEN RPI Cross Country/Track Captain Vincent Putrino purchased a $98 ticket to Florida(the cheapest available ticket) to get through the TSA and buy as much Chick-Fil-A as he and his fellow RPI students wanted.
Putrino ended up purchasing a one way airline ticket to Fort Lauderdale for $98 since it was the cheapest flight he and his teammates could find. The cost per person for the airline ticket was about $5.50.
He then proceeded to make his way through TSA security to purchase food for 18 guys including himself with no intent to actually board the flight.
