Pan Am (ie, Boston-Maine Airways Pan Am Clipper Connection), has once again shut down (for the, what, 4th time?). Pan Am (it just sounds weird even writing that) had been flying its sole route from Trenton to Hanscom Field outside of Boston until the government proposed revoking its license to fly (for various reasons which are no longer important). Trenton is now left without air service for the first time in 13 years and, I would guess, is the only state capital without flights (correct me if I’m wrong about that).
So, if you wanted to start an airline called “Pan Am,” I bet that name will be for sale pretty soon.
