Fairlines was a French start-up with a very short-lived attempt at scheduled service between Paris, Nice and Milan. Using 2 LX-registered MD-81s originally operated by Sun Jet International, the services only lasted a few months.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

In the Southeast Asian region, what I can think of is Sempati Air, owned by son of former Indonesian President Soeharto. Some shortlived Malaysian airlines are, Mofaz Air, Berjaya Air and Saeaga Airlines.

Carib Express, based in Barbados. It first flew regional routes in 1995, promising to wipe out the regional carrier LIAT. Yet it with its misfit BAe146 jets proved highly uncompetitive in the small market which LIAT served with more cost-effective Dash 8s. After 14 months Carib Express stopped flying and parked its planes. It still exists as a ground-handling firm.
Air Aruba, Zuliana and Air Caribbean all lasted somewhat longer - all survived over 5 years and, does not Zuliana still exist? I know that it moved base from MIA to Maracaibo.

I'd add ERA European Regions Airlines of Spain, operated two ERJ-145, founded 1998, ceased 2000.
Furthermore, InterCondor of Germany (joint venture of Condor and Interflug ~ 1990), that eventually never took off the ground.
Another one is PauknAir (Spain) which operated two BAe 146. Founded late 1995, ceased ops 1998.
Also "The Hula Train", Las Vegas, which intended to operate two L-1011s (to be acquired from LTU) in 1995. They never matched it.
