Combining the worst, or the best, of the namesake predecessors? There were rumors of an Eastern Airlines revival a year or so ago. Pan Am has been revived too many times. I don't know if it sounds odd to me because I'm used to hearing Eastern or Pan Am, but the conjoined names do not make make a smooth, memorable brand name.
