In the Canadian market, Jetsgo went under, and Canjet pulled out of scheduled flights. Also in Canada, Roots Air tried, and failed in 2001.

Yes, I remember what happening Southest is went out of business but, it was flies non-stop from FLL/SFB/PIE to eastern cities. I don't know which specific routes was flies in the past.

Also, I remember TransMeridian Airlines was flies SYR-FLL/SFB/LAS operated 727-200 aircraft, am I correctable?

I remember what happended Tower Air went out of business because it was took so longer delayed due to aircraft mechanical problems. It was older 747-100/200 series. I remember it was based in JFK hub. It was routes is JFK-LAS/LAX/MIA/FLL/SJU/ATH/CDG/TLV. I have a good memorable with Tower Air was flies non-stop from JFK hub.

Also, I know what happened National Airlines was based in LAS. It was flies nonstop from LAS-JFK/MIA/RNO/LAX/SEA/SFO in the past. After National was previously announced from LAS-PBI but, it was never started inaugurate flight in 2002.

That was all for now that I have a specific information the entire routes in the past.

We can add Harmony and Peace Air to that list, too.

I think that just like Ariana (Afghanistan's national carrier), Iraq Air went out of business when the US and Royal Air Forces became the official airline of those two countries.

I think both of them have resumed limited service since then.
