Are there any defunct (or about to go defunct) airlines you have flown and/or respected which you still wish was with us?
For me, a sad loss was British Caledonian. "BCal" was a fantastic airline which died a premature death, not from deregulation but over-regulation. Would BA be a different airline now had BCal taken over instead? After all, weren't the "Caledonian girls" just the greatest?

I'm with Vw, I miss AccessAir as well. In their second attempt at operating, you could fly between Des Moines and Chicago real cheap. Last April I had to take Greyhound because, even with a one-week advance purchase, it would have cost me more to fly from CHI-DSM than it it cost me to fly VS LHR-ORD!!

I miss a lot of different airlines like Pan Am, Braniff, CP Air, etc, but I would have to say that the one I miss most is Eastern Airlines. I loved their bare metal scheme with the blue "hockey stick" cheatline.
