So, I just logged off Sun Country’s Web site, having booked tickets to AZ this winter to visit my parents (and get some relief from MN winter weather).
The fare was $75 per seat less than Delta — a no brainer for a family on a budget.
However, the always-annoying process now has a few, extra wrinkles.
–A field for you to enter your “DHS redress #.”
I suppose that that’s a tip-off that the new airport search regime is ruffling not a few feathers.
–Frequent Flyer miles.
I thought discount airlines didn’t have frequent flyer miles (that was always one of the things I liked about them).
Well, now Sun Country has “U Fly” rewards, which effectively are the same thing.
–A fee(!) to pre-select your seats: in this case, $8 per.
That one’s also a no-brainer: we ‘ain’t paying it.
If Sun Country wants to disperse my — shall we say — “travel-challenged” 11, 8, and 6 year-old kids amongst a flight-full of strangers . . . my wife and I will be eternally grateful to them (maybe then I can catch up on my reading).
