Sun Country's Fleet Plans

Thu Dec 09, 1999 1:34 pm

Sun Country has an antiquated fleet of 727's and DC-10's. Does anyone know when and if they're going to be replacing them? With what types?

Maybe they will get some "new" DC-9's.  

I doubt they have the cash to be replacing them now or anytime soon.

A few months ago there was a press release stating that Sun Country had agreed to a deal with GE Capital to lease several 737-800 aircraft. Delivery was mid 2000.

I believe the deal was actually with ILFC, and it was definitely for 6 737-800s. Delivery was 2001, I think. As SunCo is re-engining it's 727s, I expect them to be around for quite a while(with winglets!)
