Is PAN-AM CLIPPER going out of business?

I was searching for flights on the Pan-Am Clipper website (http://www.FlyPanAm.com) and I wasn't able to find any flights departing or arriving after tomorrow (the 29th of February). I saw one flight for the 30th of March. Does anybody know what's the story? Are they going out of business?

Wow. I haven't checked them out in a while. I never realized they cut out ELM /SAN.

is there that much business in the remaining 3 cities?

Be glad you weren't stranded, like Maxjet (NYC<->LON) did to their customers this past New Year's holiday when they shut down without warning...

As for Pan-Am Clipper, I noticed their flights were getting smaller and smaller over the past several quarters... Never a good sign for an airline.

They had odd-ball airports for low cost. Another similar airline (that is doing well) is SkyBus - http://www.skybus.com/ - you might want to check them out.
