Airlines You've Flown That Are No Longer With Us?

What with the bad past few months for airlines, I'm wondering just how many carriers people have flown on who have subsequently ceased operations; either through bankruptcy or merger/takeover etc... Here's my list;


Air Wales - bankrupt
Air 2000 - became First Choice
Airtours - became My Travel & now merged into Thomas Cook
Air World - merged into Flying Colors and now merged into TUI
BA Connect - purchased by FlyBe
Britannia Airways - became TUI
Caledonian - became JMC
EuroManx - bankrupt
GIRJet - AOL suspended, bankrupt
Oasis Hong Kong Airlines - bankrupt

SAS Braathens - became SAS Scandinavian Airlines Norge
Skyjet - bankrupt
Snowflake - merged back into SAS?
Varig Brazil - bankrupt
XL Airways - bankrupt


So, about 15% of all the airlines I've flown have disappeared, with about half having gone bankrupt. To be honest it's not as many as I'd expected, so I hope I've not left any out.

How about others?

East-Weat Airlines (Australia) - not sure where they went.
Australian Airlines - became domestic ops for QF
Tyrolean Air - now called Austrian Arrows

THere's probably a couple I've missed....

My dad once told me that it's best to not know when it's your last flight on something, and that you only find out later it was your last flight. I never quite believed him, but after Champion shut down and I realized my flights on them were my last ever on the eternal 727, I kinda realized he was right.

My flight, TUL-LAS, was a great flight to "go out" on. My personal third flight on MG, fun flight, fun crew, and perfect landing. Great way to end my personal "career" on the 727.

Hapag-Lloyd charter - bankrupt

Are you talking about the old HF ? They may have changed their brand name twice before being merged with its off-spring X3, but IIRC at no stage was "bunkruptcy" involved here.

The one that went bankrupt was Aero-Lloyd YP - totally unrelated to HF / X3 ...

Here is my list:
AVENSA VE : bankrupt
Spantax BX: bankrupt
Hapag Lloyd HF: merged into its own off-spring X3
Aero Lloyd YP: bankrupt
SAT (Special Air Transport) (Germany) : IIRC they were the forerunner of the current
Germania ST
America West: merged into/taken over by US
Sabena SN: bankrupt
AOM / Air Liberte IW : bankrupt ?
Inex Adria Airways: dissolved after the demise of Yugoslavia ?
Laudaair NG: swllowed by AUA

It's sad to see so many on this list:

National (the original one): enjoyed their flights and fantastically clean airplanes
TWA: had some great adventures with them, including my first 747 and 1011
Overseas National & Capitol Int'l: charters, but interesting experiences
Midway (Raleigh): loved this airline
Independence: bare-bones, but good enough for me
Southeast: really bare-bones, but cheap so I can't complain
New York Air: didn't last long, but they were fine
Eastern: fond memories
