I just purchased a ticket in February from MSP-TPA on Sun Country. I have steered away from NW because of ticket costs and an included meal on SY. What can I expect for comfort, service, food, and etc?

Leather seats, single class config, mediocre food. Overall very similar to ATA. Bring a good book or portable DVD. Never had a bad ride with them. Can't come up with any real negatives. I also find parking at the Humphrey terminal easier.

Good airline, but seat pitch is bad.

Well that is news for the aircraft that have a first class cabin!

I've heard Sun Country is a great airline, do you guys agree?

I might fly on Sun Country on SAN-MSP next summer  Smile

alright, the last one I rode on was single class. I suppose things can change.

If you were on one of the Transavia leased planes those are in single class (the ones that are white and green on the outside).

Could be, it was long enough ago that I don't remember the exterior colors. I do remember the CA was great about getting me on since I was jumpseating, and the F/A's treated me well too. I also remember a lot of teenaged kids on the flight. The cabin staff had thier hands full.

I will be flying with them in late March on a MSP-PHX-MSP route. I am anxiously waiting!  Smile

At the MSP Runway Celebration last September, I got a chance to sit in the cabin of a SY plane; very comfortable. The leather seats in the Coach class was a welcome sight compared to Northwest's cloth-covered seats, and I can't wait to actually have a hot meal for free!

In a way, I hope to fly a SY/HV hybrid B738 (especially with winglets!), though I know that the interior of those planes don't meet Sun Country's normal standards.

They are a great airline!

They also have at-seat audio entertainment (bring your own headset or pay $1) and the hot meals are usually some kind of grilled sandwich (like turkey and cheese) plus pretzels and cookies.

They also do space available first-class upgrades for $75 at the airport and on the plane.

I flew the red-eye SEA-MSP this past summer, it was only half-full and everyone ended up getting two meals.

Anyone know of expansion plans?

Thanks guys for all the kind words about Sun Country.

We at the company are working hard to make you a customer for life. Its nice to hear so many passengers get off the plane and say they can't wait until they fly with us again.

Food wise right now in coach is; AM, a biscuit - sausage egg & cheese,
PM, Cheeseburger or Double cheese on Texas toast. Always served hot. It comes with a cookie, key lime chocolate chip, or regular chocolate chip.
West Coat red eye coming back to MSP oatmeal breakfast bar 3 different flavors

As far as expansion plans, The folks at the main office are good poker players, they don't show the hand they are holding.

Not to change the subject or anything, and decided not to post a new topic. However I noticed that N801SY went down to MZJ on the 10th of Dec. Does anyone know why it went to MZJ? Was it a heavy maintenance check, or is it down there for storage? Any help would be greatly appreciated

The seat pitch on their flights is not that bad. The hybrds from Tranavia are terrible though.

Perhaps (hopefully!) they have begun already -- at least on the high-demand MSP-PHX-MSP route.

Noticed yesterday at SunCountry.com that SY has as many as 4 MSP-PHX-MSP turnarounds scheduled on some days during the Christmas/New Years Day holiday travel period. Can anyone confirm whether they plan to continue flights at this frequency after the holidays during the upcoming months when demand for the route peaks -- or are the added frequencies (most I have seen in the past is 1 or 2 daily MSP-PHX-MSP turnarounds, depending on season and day of week) scheduled for peak holiday travel dates only?

Not that it's paticularly on the topic, but I also think they have one of the most attractive liveries in the sky. The only thing I wish is that they's ditch the name SunCountry -- it's two words stuck together that don't really amount to saying anything - - but mainly, because SunCountry is the name of a cheap nasty wine-cooler drink too.

Just knitpicking tho! I've heard great things otherwise!

They take people from the Cold Country, MSP, to the SunCountry, LAS, IFP, SAN, TPA, PHX.  Wink

I wish they would bring back the DC-10's and 727's with the 70's looking Sun and swirls in Orange and Yellow, now thats groovy man. Big grin

It went to Evergreen for a Stab Service Bulletin. N801SY returned home today.

Great airline, great place to work. Unfortunately though I was a victim of the LaMacchia days and got laid off in May 2001. Looks like things are going much better these days and "The Country" has a bright future.
