Honestly, I wouldn't be all that surprised. Brands need constant maintenance to stay relevant, after all. Even companies that are still active but have moved into less-obvious business sectors will fade with time - look at IBM's profile with the general public now verses in the late '80s, for example.

I actually always kind of liked it more than the mainline livery, because the clean white and boldness of the stripes on the smaller fuselages really made it stand out.
I also always loved the unique "Eagle" script in the logo:
