Say what? Sun Country's Seasonal Service to London?

Fares from Washington DC:

    What's this? Minneapolis based budget carrier Sun Country is offering seasonal summer flights to London?! As in, England? Well, apparently so! As of June 11, Sun Country will begin weekly service between Minneapolis and London-Stansted, departing MSP on Fridays and returning from STN on Sundays, through August 15. Be warned though, at $936 round-trip including taxes (or $399 one-way, before taxes), fares do not come cheap. Still, for peak summer travel, their fare beats out the lowest peak summer fare offer from Orbitz, which is $1,398 on Delta. Neither quite as budget as we'd hoped. But stay tuned! It's early yet, and who knows where summer fares will go!
