Hundreds of stranded Sun Country Airlines passengers fumed after the carrier canceled their flights home from Mexico and then told them they’re on their own to find a new way back. 
The unusual situation unfolded after a potent late-season blizzard forced airlines to cancel hundreds of flights at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport this weekend.

Hey, Jude, congrats on the new strategy.   Jude Bricker, who was appointed its chief executive last month, outlined his vision for the Eagan-based carrier in a memo to staff Tuesday. He praised Sun Country’s strong reputation, but he stressed the need to cut costs, increase revenue through fees and expand beyond its hub at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. 
Bricker’s formula mirrors the model of ultralow cost carriers like Frontier and Spirit airlines, which charge passengers for things like carry-on luggage and in-flight beverages.
