More airlines have come and gone over the years - TOO many to count. Some have had rather wacky names. huffingtonpost.com has been nice enough to remind us of some them:
1. Hooters Air: Based in Myrtle Beach, this offshoot of the redneck restaurant chain flew for three years--serving 15 cities at its peak--before folding in 2006. Yes, it featured the same scantily clad women as the eateries do, only they were just there for show; a second crew of trained flight attendants worked each flight.
2. Lord's Airline: This one could have used some help from above. The airline, which was trying to get rights to fly from Florida to the Holy Land, never got off the ground.
3. Wizz Air: This Hungarian-based discounter styles itself the Ryanair of Eastern Europe--and while its name is the butt of jokes in some quarters, its low fares and frequent flights out of London's Luton have put it on the map.
