Song Airlinesbrand owned and operated by Delta Air Lines beginning in 2003 with hubs at Kennedy in New York, Orlando International, Logan in Chicago, and Ft Lauderdale International. It operated the Skymiles frequent flyer program, offered a member lounge, and was headquartered out of Atlanta, GA
Song's primary demographic was tourist traffic between the northeastern United States and Florida. A market, yes, overrun with wealth and Paris Hilton wanna be’s, destined to die a pithy death in a Los Angeles suburb someday. But Song Airlines came out at precisely the wrong moment. Song Airlines main competitor was the also flushing JetBlue Airways, who had a bit more name recognition and had already saturated the market. Song Airlines also operated flights between Florida and the West Coast and from the Northeast to the west coast.
Song Airlines attempt was not without merit. And some of this cost probably aided their downfall. Their aircraft were fitted with leather seats and free personal entertainment system at every seat. There were also audio MP3 programmable selections, trivia games that could be played against other passengers, a flight tracker, and satellite television (provided by the DISH Network). Song offered free beverages, but charged for liquor and food. Indulgent brand-name snack boxes and healthy organic meals were offered for your selection.

British airlines used songs in their commercials to sell seats on planes. Unfortunately no song could save Song Airlines from their untimely end just three years into their existence. People who’ve flown Song Airlines said that the service was great, but no amount of service can serve the masters at the top when they decide to cut the purse strings.
The airline operated more than 200 flights a day and carried over ten million passengers. But the competition from the fierce jaws of JetBlue proved too much for Song Airlines. Their last flight took off on April 30, 2006. .
