I was just reading through some posts and someone mentioned Texas International, and it got me thinking, again, about defunct airlines that would be kool to bring back, and revise a little. Maybe give a second chance at life. I've personally always thought Texas International would be cool, probably more for the reason that I've come up with some pretty sweet livery ideas than anything. I know this is remarkably similar to the very popular and monotonous "create your own airline" posts, but maybe a little more interesting. Here's my plan for Texas International the reincarnation!

TEXAS INTERNATIONAL (#2)
HQ: San Antonio, Texas
HUBS: San Antonio, Dallas/Ft. Worth
DESTINATIONS (startup): Chicago-Midway, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles (Orange County-John Wayne), New York-JFK, San Antonio, Houston-Intercontinental
ROUTES: DFW-MDW, IAH, SAT, JFK, SNA; SAT-IAH, DFW, MDW, JFK
FLEET:
Boeing 717-6
Gotta start out small, work your way up! If, and when those flights were proven successful, I'd probably open up from DFW to MIA, MCO, ATL, and from SAT-SNA, DEN, SAN, PHX. Or something like that. Probably add JFK, MDW, SNA from Houston. Anyways, give me some of your ideas! I've thought about Eastern too, but I'll tell ya about that later.

Texas International is not defunct, it is now known as Continental Airlines, I am not sure they would appreciate the title you gave them.

The 717 may not have the range for some of those destinations from Texas. May I suggest the 737?

I would love to see the original Laker Airways brought back. Since BA and Virgin Atlantic already serve the main US - UK routes, Laker could take a Ryanair approach, flying to underserved airports in the US, Canada, and Great Britain.

Wouldn't an A330 or 767 look great in these colors?

Actually Texas is the perfect place to hub the 717, as the range puts both coasts in reach with no problems at all. AirTran's pushing the range with ATL-DEN, but all of those destinations mentioned are well within the 717's range.

From the UK I'd love to see:

Dan-Air, who were taken over by BA in 1992 would probably by now be flying 146(still), 320, 757 and maybe 763 on transatlantic charters.

Air Europe, who's parent company went into liquidation in 1991. Today would probably still be flying 757's along with 737-800's and maybe still the Rolls-Royce powered MD-11's they had on order when they went out of business.
