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.

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!
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.

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.

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

Quoting Jerion (Reply 11): I'd like to see Sun Country expand out of MSP.
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!

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.
