The Fall of Pan Am

The Lockerbie crash hurt an airline already in trouble. Passengers were scarce, Pan Am was flying empty planes. Pan Am found itself unable to pay its employees. The only option was sell what it still had. 

Pacific routes were sold to United Airlines, Atlantic routes were sold to Delta and American Airlines. 

Finally the whole airline was sold to Delta. Pan Am’s Worldport at JFK airport in New York was created into the Delta Flight Center after the sale of Pan American World Airways to Delta.

Pan Am created a plan for a ?Restructered Pan Am? with routes in the Caribbean and South American but after funds were depleted the plan ceased.
