Good for them. Hope the plans for the future work out.

My husband and I started using Sun Country in 2005 when we discovered that they flew to nonstop to San Diego year-round and at a very reasonable cost. We are now loyal Sun Country U-Fly members and have always appreciated the great service by its employees as well. I hope this airline never changes!

I have only flown Sun Country once in recent years, and my wife just flew this past month to NYC, but no problems/delays, which with the airlines is a "thumbs up". Terminal 2 is actually a big plus.

We are loyal SC customers and in all the years we've flown them we've never once had a bad experience. Always friiendly and welcoming. Unlike so many other airlines whose employees treat passengers like an inconvenience. Glad to hear they are doing well and look forward to another pleasant flight in April to Orlando.

I recently flew Sun Country from San Francisco to Minneapolis when United gate agents "messed up" causing me to miss a flight and I needed to be at a Mayo clinic appointment the next day. I booked a SC one way at the last minute (3 hours) and was extremely pleased with the comfort and service of this airline. I only wish that they would grow to service more routes and compete with the airlines that only pay lip service to serving their clientele.

Add me to the list and yes, I like the Humphrey.....I mean, terminal two also. It sure is a lot quieter... and much more relaxing. We fly sun country whenever we can, and our loyalty to the merger of Northwest to Delta, pretty much ended our business with them and yes, Sun Country flies everywhere we would like to go.

I booked a vacation on SC to Costa Rica for my son and his family and then booked a trip to Costa Rica thru Apple Vacations (we flew on the same SC flight)... SunCountry was close to $500.00 more expensive then Apple Vacations for the same flight and same resort. You have to check prices before booking with SC

Great to see Sun Country succeed after being driven to near bankruptcy by Petters. I fly to AZ frequently and the service is great.

Gadek and the employee's commitment to turn this company around is commendable. Accepting pay cuts and their loyalty is worth a ticket to this home town airline!!!

Nice to read about locally-owned company doing so well. Look to future when Sun Country will fly to Southeast Florida.
