Assuming it isn’t already circled on your new 2014 Divas of WWE wall calendar, tomorrow marks the eighth anniversary of Hooters Air calling it quits — a moment of silence, please. Before you cry into your plate of wings though, we thought it’d be fun to run down some other niche airlines that barely got off the ground, either literally or figuratively. Here are few you might’ve missed, starting with our favorite:
Operated: 2003 to 2006
Flew from: Headquartered in Myrtle Beach and operated by Pace Airlines, HA flew to as many as 17 cities during its heyday, including the Bahamas, Las Vegas, and scenic Gary, Indiana.
Gimmick: Their sexy, scantily-clad waitresses served wings and brew at altitude. Was that so wrong?
