Metro Airlines/Metroflight Airlines History?

Hello all,

I was poking around online and noticed two different airlines with similar names and identical logos.

They were Metro Airlines (HY) and Metroflight Airlines (FY).

Both looked like they had a good-sized operation in the Texas area in the late 70s through the mid 80s.

Does anyone have any info to provide on these two airlines? Were they "related" since the names, logo and areas of operation so similar?

Thanks!

It looks like Metro had one more name... HOUSTON Metro Airlines

I haven't been able to find out much more though....

One or both were also known as Great Plains Airlines also prior to Metro/Metroflight. Metro later hooked up with Eastern to be Eastern Metro Express and Metroflight became an American Eagle carrier.
