I was just driving by SFO on my way home this morning, and I saw a 727-200 (with winglets) of Sunworld. Does anybody know what Sunworld is or has anyone actually been on it? Anxiously waiting to know.....

Hey, I saw this aircraft just two days ago (july 25) pull into BHM to pick up a load of school kids on some charter. It looked sweet in the winglets. I had my camera but did not move fast enough and could not get a decent shot of it.

Sunworld International Airlines (SWI) is a charter operator, based out of CVG. They currently have a single 727-251 N828US, but I know they will get some more as they are currently hiring crews, ground instructors and staff.
The a/c is well maintained. Nice paint job and an average interior with fabric seats. The small FA's team is really friendly and despite that the passengers get on board whatever the travel agency or tour operator pays for, they always manage to have everyone happy. Pilots are well trained and are experienced.
It's a frequent Cancun visitor, especially during the very busy spring/summer and winter seasons.
There are no stupid questions... just stupid people!
