Pilots with the Mendota Heights-based carrier are upset that they're still working under a contract agreement inked when Sun Country was in bankruptcy. A spokesman for the Air Line Pilots Association tells the Star Tribune pilots for Southwest Airlines are paid nearly twice as much as Sun Country for flying the same aircraft.
The airline emerged from bankruptcy in February 2011 and has been profitable since, the Business Journal notes.
Sun Country is now owned by the Davis family, which owns Davisco Foods International Inc. and countertop maker Cambria Holdings in Le Sueur. The carrier once belonged to convicted Twin Cities businessman Tom Petters.
