Finally -- some info I got from the people at Delta:

Delta is the "Official Airline of Champions" and proud to be the Official Airline of the Seattle Seahawks.
Delta helped celebrate the kickoff of the 2014 Seahawks season with two activations on game day involving former Seahawks RB and league-MVP Shaun Alexander -- one at Sea-Tac airport, where Shaun helped Delta reps check in passengers for their flights, and the other in-stadium, where he appeared in the Delta Sky360 Club at Century Link Field.


All season long, Delta will offer Seahawks fans a chance to win a Seahawks Road Trip.  For each of the team's 8 away games, fans can enter for the chance to win a pair of round trip flights, 2 game tickets and 2 nights hotel accommodations to see the Seahawks play on the road. Fans can sign up at or at Delta-branded kiosks at Century Link Field.


About the promotion, Alexander told Forbes yesterday, "The 12th Man travels.  Any time you give the fans the opportunity of connecting with the team they are going to try to do that."
