Pan Am was a name ubiquitous with travel. At its pinnacle, it was the largest U.S. airline. With 150 jets flying to 86 countries on every continent except Antarctica, it seemed invulnerable. Unfortunately, even great things can crash and burn, and the 1970s oil crisis triggered a descent into bankruptcy and closure for this transport giant.

However, many airlines never even get to experience such highs. For some, their lows have left them all but forgotten. These airlines tried to make it big but ultimately ended up just like Pan Am.
