Hello aviation fans, we have just created a brand bew US bassed airline here in Chicago. This airline planes to be a domestic airline, hopefully serving over 30 American cities by 2002. We than plan to expand to Canada, than Mexico, then plan fly overseas. Everything is set but we don't have a name. I am now asking you to help us find a name for this new airline. Any suggestions???

Thank you.

Interesting Idea, operating out of Midway I assume? Endeavor Airlines or Airways is a name I have liked.

Thank you, yes, we will be operating out of Midway, but when we fly overseas, we will have to use ORD. Midways runways aren't exacly long enough for wide boddied planes.

Is it a virtual airline or an honest-to-God real airline? And what kinds of fleet is your new airline going to fly? Try this one for a name: Union Airlines or Union Airways. Nice sounding name, isn't it? "Union" , as in referring to the Union of the 50 United States of America!

If you're not on an extremely tight budget, you could purchase rights to the Eastern Airlines corporate logo- I for one would love to see the EAL logo flying again. Another name I've always liked is "LightSpeed Airways".

First off, I want you to know that I'd definitely fly aboard some airline with Dilbert comics on the side. So make sure that you have a color scheme like America West and shamelessly advertise cartoon characters like Dilbert, Calvin and Hobbes, or Peanuts. Or you should have plain white aircraft that say "YOUR AD HERE". Imagine a carrier with advertisements on their jets like you see on I-95 entering Philadelphia.

Who's the Father? Call 1-800 DNA -Test (imagine trying THAT in an islamic country)

GET OFF HEROIN IN 48 HOURS GUARANTEED (yes, the people getting of this aircraft in Tehran WILL go directly to the public gallows)

Or you could have creative Hooters advertisements using the two engine cowls and flesh-toned fan blades...

Now that I'm thinking of flesh tones, why not use the whole body of the plane to advertise prophylactic devices? (Forget that Vatican exclusive contract)

And now for something completely different

Turbojet(suprised nobody's used that)

Endeavour (in the british spelling sounds nice)

Prozac Air (a pet fantasy of mine)

Worldspan (just another cool sounding generic name)

When I start my airline (someday, I hope), i'm calling it RobAir... but thats just because I want part of my last name in the name. It probably doesn't do you much good.

I think thats the most brilliant idea I've seen all day. A sort fo reverse naming rigths deal. Al the airlines name satudiums (United Center, AA Arena, Delta Center etc...). Why don't you guys rip a page from the book and sell the naming rights. Theres a mall in Georgia being named for the Discover Card (40million over 20 years) and AmericanAirlines is renaming the Selwyn Theatre in NY. You guys should approach United, American and Delta and have them name your airline. Something like this:
United Airlines (but not really United Airlines)
Than they would pay you. Or find some internet startup like Buy.com (Buy.com golf tour). I don't know what all the fuss is bout all airlines names. They went out of business. Eastern, Braniff, Piedmano ARE GONE. No matter how delighful the memories are they were FAILURES. Why start a bright future with a failures name draped over a new airframe. I like the word "Smile." with the computre logo " " on the tail

This will be a real airline based in Chicago (Not sure what airport yet). We were thinking of using the airbus A320s or the Boeing 717s but we like the A320s better.

Thanks for the name. Union Airways would sound good.

Thank you everybody. I like all the names you gyus have come up with. But the ones that I really think would suit our new airlines are the following:

Endeavor Airways

Union Airlines

LightSpeed Airways (That might be the one!!!)

AmeriJet

I also liked the Ideas of naming the airline after companies like AOL airlines, but I would rather not. Having cartoons on the planes like Dilbert is a good idea. There are some other airlines that do that like America West and Western Pacific.

Keep making up names, We have some pretty good ones so far.

This is intresting, when I did a sub service for Canada 3000 they were saying that they are going to start an airline in the US called US4000 since there is a Air2000 (UK), Canada 3000,and not trying to get US4000 started. Is Emerald airways/lines taked already.
How can we apply to work for this airline?

Hello there,

I think where you are in the central states a good name would be something like Central State Airlines/Airways International, Or something like International State Airline or reverse it to ve State International. But the choice is yours!!

Good luck!!

Union Airlines sounds too much like United Airlines. There is already an Amerijet, which makes things confusing. But the idea of reviving an old brand and logo is not bad at all. Look how nice National and Frontier are doing (and to a lesser extent Pan Am III). Some other forgotten carriers were 'Transamerica', 'Republic' or 'Empire Airlines.' Names like that are still recognized and your airline immeditately sounds like a trustworthy mega carrier.
Because your Chicago-base, you might think of 'North Central' too. And remember to look at your abbreviations (TWA, COA etc), avoid anything where funny fake-names can be made of, and the ones which are confusing with existing carriers. Good luck! I wish I were you, I'd always have loved to found my own airline.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

You can use Chicago Airways or Chicago Airlines since your base is in Chicago, and I would recomend you the new Boeing 737's "Next Generation".
