Companies With Airline Names

Fri Dec 12, 2003 12:33 pm

What are some companies that share the same name with airlines?
I came up with a few:

United Furniture
United Fence Co.
United Van Lines
Delta faucets
American pencils
Continental Tires
Continental Engines

What else is there?

United Van Lines immediately came to my mind when I saw the topic, but Sushka already mentioned it.

Several companies share the name "Adria" with Slovenia's Adria Airways, including this Slovenian trailer, mobile home, and RV company:

Of course, Adria refers to the Adriatic Sea -- that's why most companies with using the name can be found in countries with Adriatic coastlines. In fact, there was even another airline that used "Adria" in its name: Croatian-based Pan Adria (well before the breakup of Yugoslavia):
