Two questions regarding operations at MSP based Sun Country:
1. Sun Country flies two variants of the 737: the 700 and the 800.
According to the tech specs below, they both have a 2600NM range. Doesn't the 700 have additional range compared to the 800 because it is lighter and carries the same amount of fuel? On the tech sheet they don't specify whether the range is with a full load of passengers or payload restrictions.
2. Sun Country flies to LGW, the only place in Europe they fly to. I know they are based in MSP, but does the NG737 fly MSP-LHR nonstop? They must be making a tech stop somewhere. If you look at the map below, it just shows a direct link from MSP to LGW with no stop in between. I don't think that's possible because the 737 is the only aircraft Sun Country flies.
And third question: why didn't they buy the 767-300ER when the retired the DC-10? That would have been the perfect airplane for their long haul operations.
Anybody working for Sun Country?
