Airlines You've Flown That Are No Longer With Us?

Fri Sep 19, 2008 12:37 am

What with the bad past few months for airlines, I'm wondering just how many carriers people have flown on who have subsequently ceased operations; either through bankruptcy or merger/takeover etc... Here's my list;


Air Wales - bankrupt
Air 2000 - became First Choice
Airtours - became My Travel & now merged into Thomas Cook
Air World - merged into Flying Colors and now merged into TUI
BA Connect - purchased by FlyBe
Britannia Airways - became TUI
Caledonian - became JMC
EuroManx - bankrupt
GIRJet - AOL suspended, bankrupt
Oasis Hong Kong Airlines - bankrupt

SAS Braathens - became SAS Scandinavian Airlines Norge
Skyjet - bankrupt
Snowflake - merged back into SAS?
Varig Brazil - bankrupt
XL Airways - bankrupt


So, about 15% of all the airlines I've flown have disappeared, with about half having gone bankrupt. To be honest it's not as many as I'd expected, so I hope I've not left any out.

How about others?

Lauda Air - swallowed by OS Group
Ansett Australia - bankrupt
Domodedovskie Avialinii - now part of Air Union
Pulkovo Airlines - now part of GTK Rossiya (or is it the other way 'round?).
East-Weat Airlines (Australia) - not sure where they went.
Australian Airlines - became domestic ops for QF
Tyrolean Air - now called Austrian Arrows
Pan Am - bankrupt
Varig Brazil - bankrupt
Hapag-Lloyd charter - bankrupt

THere's probably a couple I've missed....

Edit: Forgot Sabena...

My dad once told me that it's best to not know when it's your last flight on something, and that you only find out later it was your last flight. I never quite believed him, but after Champion shut down and I realized my flights on them were my last ever on the eternal 727, I kinda realized he was right.

My flight, TUL-LAS, was a great flight to "go out" on. My personal third flight on MG, fun flight, fun crew, and perfect landing. Great way to end my personal "career" on the 727.

Quoting NG1Fan (Reply 2):
Hapag-Lloyd charter - bankrupt

Are you talking about the old HF ? They may have changed their brand name twice before being merged with its off-spring X3, but IIRC at no stage was "bunkruptcy" involved here.

The one that went bankrupt was Aero-Lloyd YP - totally unrelated to HF / X3 ...

Here is my list:
AVENSA VE : bankrupt
Spantax BX: bankrupt
Hapag Lloyd HF: merged into its own off-spring X3
Aero Lloyd YP: bankrupt
SAT (Special Air Transport) (Germany) : IIRC they were the forerunner of the current
Germania ST
America West: merged into/taken over by US
Sabena SN: bankrupt
AOM / Air Liberte IW : bankrupt ?
Inex Adria Airways: dissolved after the demise of Yugoslavia ?
Laudaair NG: swllowed by AUA

10 out of 69 in 35 years of flying: Looks like I stick to those that do stay around ...

For me:

Air UK

Buzz
Jersey European, before they morphed into Flybe
Northwest, before the Delta merger.

If I wait a week I can also say Alitalia...

My Mum and sister went to Sharm el Sheik last week on XL - they came home on the Sunday before the collapse.

It's sad to see so many on this list:

National (the original one): enjoyed their flights and fantastically clean airplanes
TWA: had some great adventures with them, including my first 747 and 1011
Overseas National & Capitol Int'l: charters, but interesting experiences
Midway (Raleigh): loved this airline
Independence: bare-bones, but good enough for me
Southeast: really bare-bones, but cheap so I can't complain
New York Air: didn't last long, but they were fine
Eastern: fond memories

ATA flew them a few times out of MDW, I really enjoyed flying ATA a lot they were a great airline. My last flight on them was in spring of 2006 MDW-LGA on a 737-300. Great flight.
One of my favourite airlines of all time flew them a few times about 8 times was Chalks International Ocean Airways. It was alot of fun flying in those old sea planes, no cockpit door, crew was great. Landing and taking off in the water was an amazing experience.
So thankfully my short list is:
ATA
Chalks.

  • TWA - My very last flight with them was in the last livery, and MD80 TPA-STL.

  • ExpressJet - This one hurts more than any other loss, as this changed a minimum three hour car ride (at the VERY best, breaking a few speeding laws) into a comfortable and scenic 42 minute plane flight. I knew it was too good to last, but I have great memories of it nonetheless.

    Well, I went on first commercial flight at 10 y.o. -- and that was a "few" years ago. . . those of us that were flying pre-78' had the chance to experience a lot of carriers. We had family on the east coast and CA so hence. . . the Allegheny, Mohawk, North Central, Air Cal, PSA etc. trips over the years. And alot of the rest were big time or hub MCI carriers over the years (TW, BN, Eastern, Vanguard etc.), which is my home airport. And the past 20 years have traveled a lot for work also. So . . . It is sad when I look at the list of all the great airlines not around now. . . nostalgic. Especially the greats like the original Braniff International, Trans World, Eastern and Pan Am. Afraid everyone's list might grow longer in the months to come, hope not!

    Piedmont Airlines. My first flight was on Piedmont, and the experience really set the standard for me. And now it's another one of those airlines that USAir merged with, and is remembered as a heritage livery or a commuter airline. I really wonder what would have happened if Piedmont was still around...

    Pan AM (LAX-HNL-LAX) 747-100 in 1988

    Aloha Airlines (many interisland 732 flights)

    L'Express (Local Airline based in MSY with Beechcraft. Flew SHV MSY and SHV HOU plus other routes on B1900s and BE99s around 1990)

    USAir (1997--was USAir at the time). Maybe this is a stretch, but America West is now the owner and operator of USAirways.
    If you don't buy that, then I flew America West SNA LAS DFW in 1995.

    TWA 757 STL IND STL and IND STL SHV on 727200 and DC910
    See, I knew American Eagle was first class all along!

    Quoting NG1Fan (Reply 2):
    East-Weat Airlines (Australia) - not sure where they went.

    Brought by Ansett in July 1987. AN continued the brand as a Leisure airline until Late 1993.
