    Some Giants fans are paying big bucks to see their beloved Big Blue take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 46.

    It's obvious where this crew in blue is headed.

    More than 700 Giants fans flooded Newark Liberty International Airport's Terminal B Friday to board privately chartered flights to Indianapolis to watch their beloved Big Blue take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 46.

    For some, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. For others, it's an experience they've had before.

    Either way, these fans are sparing no cost for the best seats, both on the flight to Indy and at the game.

    "It will be well worth every penny," said Frank Hujber, who is headed to his second Super Bowl. He, his brother and his eldest son made the trip to Arizona in 2008 when the Giants defeated the Patriots in an epic game.

    This time, Hujber's 8-year-old son is coming along, too.

    "What I want to do is see the Giants win the Super Bowl with both my boys. After that, I'm happy," Hujber said. He and his family live in Seabrook, N.Y.

    The Hujbers' Super Bowl arrangements are organized by the Big Blue Travel Company, the official road trip company of the New York Giants.

    The company had so many requests this year, it chartered two 747s operated by Atlas Air to fly the fans out to cheer for their team.

    Each $5,000 ticket includes airfare, game tickets and hotel rooms. And diehard fans say the experience is well worth the price of admission.

    "If we win we won't remember how much it costs," said Hujber's brother, Chris.

    The Super Bowl airs Sunday on NBC. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET.
