Former Airlines That You Wish Still Exist Today

What are some former airlines that you wish still exist today?

For me, it would be Virgin America. They completely merged with Alaska in 2018. I miss their safety video. #vxsafetydance

I really miss Continental. They were probably my favorite airline but then United went and bought them :(

I never even got to fly Virgin America before they went out of business but I really wish I got the chance. The atmosphere always seemed like a party and I’m sure flights to Vegas were absolutely lit up there!

That’s a good one! Sure missing the cactus callsign.

Gotta go with Wow Air, even though they are supposed to relaunch

Definitely Virgin America. I got really lucky that I was able to fly an Alaska A321neo with the Virgin America cabin before they were gone for good. I’ll miss that airline.

Yeah, neither have I. They were going to fly to YVR before pulling out. That would have been cool to spot.

Lucky you! :)
The only time I flew on their A321neo was January this year JFK-LAX and it was already refurbished :(

I kinda miss Air Berlin. They were supposed to fly a Dusseldorf to Dallas route years before they ceased operations but never actually launched the route.

I also miss Air Italy cuz of its livery.

I miss Jet Airways a lot too. I loved it’s livery a lot.

There is still a very slight chance that it might come back as 11 investors are interested in it (this new came just yesterday)
