That DC-9-32, along with two others, are current operated by SOUTHEAST AIRLINES. They are a charter airline flying for Casinos, Companies, and Florida Tourists. This plane is much different than any other DC-9-32 I have been on. The first thing you would notice is the "empty" look of the Galley. There was nothing in the storage units, and empty Beverage Carts. The Galley has a Certificate Of Sanitary Construction Presented to Continental Airlines. This was a former Continental LITE DC-9-32. The interior has Continentals standard Blue Checkered Seats. The Tray Tables are Black, along with the armrests. This makes the interior somewhat different from Continentals other interiors. This aircraft was very clean, and I was impressed with its look. When I was taking the tour, the F/A was cleaning every tray table for its flight the next day to PIE. It was going to stay overnight. I got to ask a few questions about SOUTHEAST AIRLINES Operations. They do not have any "Logos" except on the Safety Card, Flight Deck Manual, F/A Wings,Cockpit Crew Wings, and the planes outside livery. This Airline purchased National's "Sun King" Logo. The mechanic who gave me the tour told me SOUTHEAST AIRLINES main job is to Get You There And Back Safely. There is Inflight Service, but its the standard Peanuts and Soda. The Inflight Magazine is "WHERE" New Orleans, which is of no relation to SOUTHEAST. It is a tourist Magazine. On the back of the seats, above the tray table, there where black plastic covers, where the telephone is on other airliners. This plane does not have phones. I got to see the Flight Deck, which was well maintained. Well, I hope this answers some of your questions regarding SOUTHEAST AIRLINES. Lots of people ask about that Sun King. Overall SOUTHEAST is an excellent Airline, and I look forward to flying with them soon. They started after SunJet Collapsed in 1998/1999.

Thanks that answers a lot of my questions. Did anyone say what the company's future plans are? Like any chance of scheduled service?

No... There was no word of a Scheduled Service. I guess you can say they already do that. They have a scheduled time for departures and Arrivals. I dont know much about the Schedules. They just aquired N980VJ, so they are doing good.
