Sun Country Billboard On I-94 Minneapolis

Thu Jun 21, 2007 9:31 am

I was driving east on 94 today and noticed a Sun Country Airlines billboard that said something like, "Minneapolis -- LAX -- BOS". I went to www.suncountry.com and couldn't find any information on this strange billboard.

Is SY planning Boston as its next city?
Anyone from the MPLS area see this billboard (near North Minneapolis).

I hope so, when were they last at BOS? late 90s early 2000s? I can't remember.

SY cut BOS when they went bankrupt, so around the end of 2001 is my guess.

I think so.. They cut out tow routes IIRC a couple of weeks ago.
Long Live Memphis!

They cut BOS when all flights were grounded after the 9/11 attacks.

The whole point of this campaign is to show the convenience of Sun Country and the HHH Terminal compared to that of Northwest and the busy Lindbergh Terminal. The campaign is about 'Casting Your Vote' for the option you think is better. The one you're referring to gives: option one as MSP - LAX and option two as MSP - BOS - LAX. The latter of the two obviously makes no sense. So they are just advertising their non-stops out of MSP. Boston could always be a new city, but in this case they are just using it as an example.


Some of the other 'Ballot' options (for those who haven't seen the ads):

Cheeseburger vs. No Cheeseburger ('Nothing 'on the tv ad)
Luggage en Arrival vs. Luggage en Route
Park Close vs. Park Yonder
Smile vs. Poker Face
Leather Seats vs. Seats
Arrive Ready vs. Arrive Crabby
3 Short Lines vs. One Long Line
Now You're Flying Smart.

But... You'd have to change terminals to fly MSP-BOS-LAX!  Wow!

Since NW is the only airline that operates MSP-BOS, SY would do good on that route I would think.
It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

NW only operates a lot of routes out of MSP IMHO...
