Southeast Airlines

Southeast Airlines was a low fare public charter airline in the United States, headquartered in Largo, Florida, operating regular service to various vacation/leisure destinations using eight McDonnell Douglas DC-9-30 and two McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft. It abruptly ceased operations on November 30, 2004.[1] The airline was featured on The Simple Life reality TV series, which Southeast executives hoped would give the carrier some exposure.[2] The airline's jets featured the "Sun King" logo previously used by the original National Airlines which appeared on the tails of its aircraft.[3]
