I am good friends with the former CEO and president of MGM, they went Chap 11 many years ago.

Towards the end, they were charter only, specializing in sports team charters. Then as with most airlines they had financial problems and then they were bought by American International (Kalitta) and they turned MGM's immaculate DC8-62's in freighters!!!!! Luckily I was able to fly on MGM once from LAX to MBJ (Montego Bay Jamaica) and back on 2 of MGM's DC8's in 1993. They were gorgeous.
