USAirways.

Allegheny merges with Mohawk becomes USAir in 1979.
Piedmont merges with Empire (1984/5???) then merges with USAir in 1988.

USAir acquires PSA in 1987.

With USAirways you forgot about Allegheny's '67? or '68? acquisition of Indianapolis based Lake Central Airlines and the Indy base of operations that remains to this very day as USAirways carries more passengers in and out of Indianapolis than any other airline.

The Lake Central purchase was Allegheny's first foray outside of their Northeastern stronghold.

For Northwest,

Southern and North Central merge, creating Republic, which purchases Hughes Air West (itself a creation of at least two carriers, but I can't remember which ones).

To answer the Hughes Air West question:

Bonanza + Air West + Pacific = Hughes Air West

More correctly on Hughes Air West, it was Bonanza, Pacific, and West Coast that merged to form Air West, which was later acquired by the Summa Corporation and renamed Hughes Air West. Delta also has Chicago & Southern in its acquisition history, Continental has Pioneer, and Frontier bought Central before it was later acquired by People Express, then both were bought by Texas Air and merged into Continental.

EGGD - Dammit, I knew there was another one, I just couldn't remember who it was. As for the BEA/BOAC merger, long before my time (aviation-wise!!)

OK, here goes:
BAW was formed by the merger of BEA (1), BOAC (2), Cambrian (3), & Northeast (4). It has since swallowed BCAL (5), & Dan-Air (6). BCAL was formed by the merger of BUA (7) & Caledonian (8). BUA was formed when Airwork (9) & Hunting-Clan (10) joined, including Air Charter (11) & Transair (12), both of which were owned by Airwork. Hunting-Clan was itself formed by the merger of Hunting (13) with Clan (14). Dan-Air had previously absorbed Skyways (15) & Scottish (16). BOAC was the result of Imperial Airways (17) & the original British Airways (18) joining at the outset of WWII. It later took over BSAA (19). The original BAW had swallowed three other carriers (20, 21, & 22) in 1924. BEA was formed after WWII by the merger of Railway (23), Allied (24), another Scottish (25), Great Western & Southern (26), & Channel Island (27). can anyone better that?

Also, Northeast taken by Delta in(I think 1972), then of course you can kind of throw in Pan Am and National(original) since Delta ended up with so much of Pan Am's property ast the end.
