Defunct Airlines

Sat Apr 20, 2002 7:12 am

Why is it that when an airline goes bankrupt it seems as if it disappears from the phase of the earth. If you conduct an Internet search for airlines such as Carnival Airlines, Air South, Kiwi, Pan am, and Eastern it is almost (not to say impossible) to find their route maps, seat maps, timetables as well as general (but specific) information. DO you know of any site that has these airlines and other defunct airlines memorabilia? I would like to start a defunct airline homepage, but I really need to find the timetables, route maps, and seat maps (as well as all other information) on the airlines above and all other defunct. Can you please help me?

Thank you for your help and time
You friend,
Carnival Air

e*bay has a LOT of this kind of stuff. In fact, there are sub-categories for the major airlines, including defunct major airlines.

If you go there, just type in, for instance 'Pan Am' in the general search space...

You should have a look at AirNikon's webages of defunct airlines, which feature many of his photographs. In addition to that, I've seen some good sites for PSA and Air Cal. I think the PSA site is iflypsa.com.

NDSchu777. For some reason I'm partial to that one as well. I wonder why?
