WHBM, you da man! Panagra was indeed the first U.S. airline to go all jet. And cs57 is correct in that TWA was the first to offer an all jet schedule on domestic flights.

As to questions 7 & 9:

7. What airlines’ reservation offices sold tickets in its 45 cities via teletype for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs baseball teams and NFL Chicago Cardinals and Bears?


9. What two U.S. airlines acquired and used the National Airlines “Sun King” logo? One used the logo on its pilot wings and badges while the other employed it on its aircraft tails.

Key Airlines purchased the logo and employed it on its pilot wings and hat badges though so far as I know never on its airplanes. Southeast Airlines did sport the logo on the tails of its DC-9s and MD-80s.
