hmm, some people consider Trinidad as part of Latin America.
I know Dell does....I had to by my computer from the Dell Latin America site.
oh, getting back on the topic....
since Trinidad is 8 miles away from Venezuela, I'll add

Air Caribbean to the list.
went out of service in 2000.

VIASA - Venezuelan International Airlines, ceased operations in 1997. This is what their fleet looked like after the airline was grounded at its home base of Caracas.

Just planes has a comprehensive listing of defunct carries since 2000.

It's truly sad to scroll through those names.

Indeed it's sad to see all those defunct airlines. About Taesa, weren't they a big airline? I know they operated quite a variety of aircraft types throughout the years, but did they have a large fleet? They weren't a small airline, right?

I found it sad to see Viasa of Venezuela go bankrupt. Somehow I liked their livery on all their aircraft, the famous orange tail of Latin America, I called them. When I arrived at Miami in 1984 with Eastern Airlines (also a favorite airline of mine), I saw a Viasa 747-200 parked at the terminal together with a ALM MD80 and a Avianca 747-200, that was a sight I would like to see again.
