Sun Country will finally roll out a smartphone app sometime this month, according to Thrifty Traveler.

Why it matters: The Minneapolis-based airline admitted it was the only one in the U.S. without an app.

  • It used to have one, before canning it in 2017.

What they're saying: CEO Jude Bricker told analysts that Delta's rebuilding of its service at MSP Airport post-COVID is creating more competition.

  • The good news for travelers: That means lower fares, according to Thrifty Traveler.

Yes, but: The airline might slash its fall schedule by a third, Bricker said.

  • That could mean canceled flights between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.
