    Australia

    Ansett
    East West

    Hey Alan. why do you say US Airways (a Star Alliance carrier)?

    Now that they are shacked up with AW, I think they will do OK.

    Perhaps you should have said Independence Air.

    :)

    :? Is the same Delta Air Lines that began operations in 1924 and is now the second largest carrier of passengers in the world behind American Airlines :?:

    Or is there another Delta that I have not heard about :?:

    But still operating :?:

    The OP suggested airlines that have gone out of business and the title suggest airlines that are now defunct.

    So Delta has not gone out of business nor is it defunct.
