World Airways Buys North American Airlines

Here’s an airline merger you likely won’t care about:  World Air Holdings (parent of World Airways) purchased North American Airlines for $35 million.  If neither of those names ring a bell, World Airways provides military charter services (for the most part), so you typically see their planes dropping off troops in the Middle East.  North American Airways does similar work, but also offers scheduled service to, of all places, Guyana from JFK.  And, as a little followup to my note yesterday about entertainment options on full service airlines, even tiny North American Airlines offers the handheld DigiPlayer on flights to Oakland.
