I didn’t know they were announcing MSN routes too. Wonder if there are other routes TBA?

That is good for the MSN community, they make sense as additions.


MSN has been teasing about "new services and destinations" coming today (11/5) on their social media accounts. Not sure that means they'll be SY announcements, but they definitely could be?

I wonder if SY picked some of the destinations to fit in with their sport/military charter flights. Their schedulers must be very busy. lol

Both Duluth and Mankato have been added as a part of a bus line to MSP (don’t remember the name of it) so that passengers can book flight from these cities to other Sun Country destination without actually flying planes to those places

Will the bus passengers be charged extra for carry-ons? Really the coach ride would be the highlight of the trip. I used to go out of my way to fly Sun Country, but there's no way now. It seems like they are in a race to the bottom with Spirit.

Spirit actually isn’t that bad... Frontier on the other hand...

If you’re talking about me, I was responding to another poster who stated that the new routes were all going to be ex-MSP.

It's interesting. SY has tried MSP-IAD, MSP-DCA. Well...maybe MSP-BWI will click.



Does SY still have an interline agreement with DE? With Condor serving BWI, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Everytime I think of buses and airlines, I'm reminded of Sky High Airlines Super Scrimper fares!

They still have one with SY at MSP. At least going by next summers schedule.

I am following the Sun Country Landline concept very closely.
It appears they hope to expand into Fargo, Brainerd, & Sioux Falls markets in the near future.

The buses on their website look like the ultimate in luxury with an attendant on board


They do a great job describing the experience, breaking it down step by step. I don't live anywhere near MSP, but the level of service is amazing. It certainly beats the buses I saw taking Norwegian passengers from SWF to NYC.

It seems to add on about $25 to $30 each way. I'd gladly pay that to get to JFK from Fairfield County.

They create a seamless experience, which is pretty nice.
