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.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.
