The cross country team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York were really wanting some Chick-fil-A last week for lunch. But the closest Chick-fil-A restaurant was 90 minutes away and three hours round-trip seemed excessive.

Luckily there is a closer Chick-fil-A inside of Albany International Airport 15 minutes away but they had to get inside of the terminal to get to it.

So they pooled their money and bought the cheapest ticket they could find: A $98 one-way flight to Fort Lauderdale on Delta. It cost each of them around $5.50 each.

Then the team captain used the ticket to get through airport security and buy $227 worth of Chick-fil-A. He left the airport without flying on the flight, obviously, and delivered the food back to his teammates.

To Make it worth they're while the 18 guys ordered 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches, 15 large fries, 156 nuggets, one bag of cookies, and one lemonade.
