Airlines I Would Like To See Return

Mon Apr 10, 2006 7:20 pm

Just like Pop groups and singers come out of the woodwork after many years I would like to see the return of the following. Aviaition isnt the same without them

Pan Am
TWA
British Caledonian
Air Europe
Orion
British Airtours
BCAL Charter
Dan-Air
Air Florida
Britannia Airways (get rid of Thomsonfly)
Eastern Airlines
Braniff

Anyone else think of any others that should come back!

PA, TW & EA I would agree with. I have never flown BN, but their Alexander Calder painted DC8's were some sight.

Maybe that's why I liked the BA world tail scheme. Oops! Maybe I should keep that quiet!  Wink

PA and TW are two legends without whom commercial aviation isn't quite the same, but they are from a distant era now and I wouldn't be happy to see them back unless they did justice to the glory of their former selves.

Edit: I also miss the proper Swissair, they were an airline unlike no other.

Bring back the Golden Age of aviation.

Piedmont and their Pacemakers! Love to see that paint scheme on a B738 with winglets or a B772. Can't forget the Piedmont Punch either!  Smile

Amen! Heck, I'm frothing at the mouth to see the Piedmont livery on an A319... It might be blasphemy to put the Piedmont logo on an Airbus, but I for one will go out of my way to fly on the Piedmont Retrojet!

I miss Piedmont!

Dutchbird, had my first flight with them (it was one of their first flights as well), they had an excellent service and their 757s had a better seatpitch than American and America West's 757s, at least, that's how I have experienced it.

Sadly they became a victim of HollandExel...

Continental and United merge to form the new Pan Am, a Star Alliance member.

Hubs at SFO, LAX, DEN, IAH, ORD, EWR, & IAD.

The old Delta Airlines.

But seriously folks...

I would love to see a Western Airlines red "W" swizzel-stick jet in the
sky again.
As well as a National Airlines "Sun King" in yellow and orange colors
coming to an airport near me.

I had to take PSA off the list because there's now one flying around
the US route network.  cloudnine  . Jealous much ???
fly high, pay low...Germanwings!

Then in the summer, bring them up north and do a Manhattan-Provincetown/Marthas Vineyard/Nantucket service ....

Just a joke, really . . but something like this would be a trip!

The first Australian Airlines which was transformed into QF Domestic, Qantas only flew International prior to almagating the Australian Brand in 1993. (left) The second Australian Airlines was launched by QF group in 2002 as a full service leisure carrier using 767's to Asian ports from its Cairns base focusing on inbound tourism although they later flew on routes from other cities focusing on outbound tourism. Australian will be merged into QF mainline in July loosing their ochre colourscheme  Sad to make way for Jetstar's International expansion in November. (right)

I would like to see the regional, commuter airlines return to being themselves instead of the United Express, etc. Each had something unique about them which made flying interesting.
