I flew them in March MSP-SFO. They are a wierd airline. I'd say they are an airline in an identity crisis. Cheap tickets... with a beach-like feel, but sandwiches and new service to lots of business destinations. Leather seats. Overall, I'd say way better than most airlines in America. But nothing too amazing. I would definately fly them again. The HHH Terminal at MSP is very nice and convenient as well. You get more on SY than on other airlines for less of a price pretty much.
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

We in MN think of Sun Country as the little airline that could. They have come back strong since April 2002, when the new management team took over. The crews are very friendly, and they are one of the few who feed the passengers with out charging additional money. Last I heard the LAX-MSP-LAX run was a red eye, you will get something to eat like a Quaker breakfast bar before you land.
It has been hard to find the right food for the passengers, as most just want to sleep. I hope you have a good time flying with Sun Country.

That's right, their crews seem to be much more freindlier and helpful than the legacy airlines are. And don't forget that their aircraft are relatively new. The old, decreped DC-10's and 727's are long gone and have been replaced with the newer 737-800's, which are kept up very nicely. I would definitely fly them again anytime.

- New planes
- Low fares
- Leather seats
- Hot sandwiches (on daytime flights)
- Crew is much happier than the crew at the MSP counterpart
- Flies to smaller, newer, easier Humphrey Terminal at MSP
- No mileage program
- IFE is just audio
- The Humphrey Terminal doesn't have many concessions at all - just one bar and two mini-convenience stores (this is partially because I don't think SY connects passengers so passengers don't have long layovers at the Humphrey Terminal)
- And of course, the MSP observation deck is in the Lindbergh Terminal!
Overall I really like flying SY but if they only had a mileage program I'd fly them much more often.

I flew them for the first time back in March on MSP-PHX-MSP. Unfortunately, I was onboard HV hybrids both ways, so no leather seats for me. But I was impressed with them nonetheless. The crew was friendly, the food was decent and everything was handled well. I would definitely fly them again.

SUN country, and there hub is one of coldest places in america. lol
Anyway, i flew bos-msp (when they still flew out of bos before 9/11), and it... was just a flight. It's kind of a no-frills airline. They get you where you want to go. But that was a while ago. I hear they have improved, a bit. Good fares but they only place you can go is MSP, they dont do connecting flights, say lax-msp-lga.
