Question About Sun Country

Sat May 18, 2002 8:30 am

Is Sun Country completely a scheduled charter airline, or do they actually have scheduled service that is not charter?

As far as I know, they are a scheduled charter carrier. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

As I know, they are flying only charter flights. I was told that the flights were booked and scheduled at regular intervals by Harrahs casino in Nevada. If you look at their web page, all the western flights center around Laughlin.

SY is also flying to MCO, RSW and PNS but I don't know who those flights are for as yet.

HHHramp,
Right idea, but you are incorrect about which casino. The Harrahs flights are operated by Allegiant, not Sun Country. Sun Country's flights in Laughlin are operated for Don Laughlin's Riverside Casino.

I am way out of the loop, I think. Sun Country is back?

IMissPiedmont,
It never left, just filed bankruptcy, then cut back and reorganized with a new owner group.
