An additional tid-bit or two;
MuseAir was the first airline to have no smoking allowed on any of its flights; this was when smoking was still allowed on domestic US ops with most airlines. It was very nice, as those who recall the stench of smoke in the enclosed spaces of airline cabins willl recall.
Had MuseAir (IATA code MC) pursued its long-haul strategy from the start, rather than mimicking WN's route network (on which it could never hope to defeat WN's established dominance), it might well have thrived.
When WN bought 'em, they had signs which said, "Blood, Sweat... and Cheers!"
WN moved the airline's HQ to Houston from Dallas, renamed it TranStar, painted the aircraft in the rather nice blue livery, and allowed it to fly for a while longer, but they never achieved the kind of operational results wanted, and were shut down with pretty much all the aircraft sold to CO.
Funny, I remember KIIS-FM in Los Angeles giving away atrip on TranStar in a promotion, about a week before their scheduled shutdown. Hope the winner used it fast.
Muse / TranStar's people ran a fine operation, I flew them often, and I was sad to see them go.
