Way back when..I took a flight from BDL aboard an airline by the name of BEST Airlines. A very small carrier that had but two old DC-9's. Flew to IND with two stops enroute. I think BUF and CLE. On the return flight four days later, not only did we have the same plane, but we had the same crew working the trip. I don't recall the airline lasting very long...this was back in the 80's when all the various post deregulation start ups were coming and going. Going with that, how many airlines both past and present are, or have existed with only two aircraft at the most?

"Our Airline", formerly known as Air Nauru, is the national airline for the tiny island nation of Nauru. Their sole aircraft is a 737-300. They fly it between BNE and Nauru (no idea what the IATA code is) a few times a week as well as offering flights to a couple of other nearby islands.
And with all the press they've gotten regarding their charging passengers based on weight, I looked up Samoa Air the other day. It looks like their fleet consists of 2 BN Islanders and a single Cessna 172.
