Trans Caribbean ? They were officially regarded as a US trunk carrier despite a small fleet, and must have been changed over to their DC8s by the mid-1960s. Alternatively I'll go for Panagra, the last of the prop aircraft gone by the same period.

BOAC also withdrew their last prop aircraft, Britannias, from schedules by mid 1966 as the first VC-10s came along (they lasted a bit longer on charters, principally to the US),so a bit of a race from over here for who was first.
