I have always wondered what happened to these various airline companies. However when I ask people I get many different answers. Here are the ones I am interested in. I am looking for ex-employees to answer if they are present.
Rosenbalm (freight hauler)
MGM Grand Air
I hope that’s not too many. I can remember working with former Branniff employees on the flight line and they all quit to try to start Branniff again. I was amazed at the level employee loyalty they had. They would sit and reminisce about old times say how great the old company was. It was before my time I am fascinated.

Braniff 1 : bankrupt in 1982. 2 resurrections also failed.
Frontier 1: Bought by People Express in 1986 and merged into Continental along with PE.
Pan Am 1 : Bankrupt DEC 1991.
Western Pacific : Bankrupt (1996 ?)
MGM Grand : Bought by Scott Kalitta and renamed Champion Air.
Rosenbalm I think just died when ATI, UPS and Emery got there own AOCs.
it's getting harder not to tell people they are really odd if they think an airplan can be sexy.
