Pan Am is still a scheduled carrier. They also do charters here and there (kind of like Sun Country, I guess).
This is a very interesting story.. Long story short, it appears that they are attempting to transition their operations over to the Boston-Maine operators certificate, which allows them to hire new employees (non-unionized) for much less than their current employees (on the Pan American certificate).
I believe that they have been hiring some flight crews from the Caribbean, but I'm not positive. All in all, it appears to be "union busting", which is a very touchy subject in aviation.
