Formerly called ‘ValueJet’, Airtrain Airlines has one of the most infamous histories of any new airline. Established back in the early 1990’s, ValueJet Airways was a low-cost airline that seemingly cut corners in training flight crew, performing safety/maintenance tasks on planes, and ultimately did everything they could to become one of the most profitable small load airlines in the country. For a while this worked, until a high profile airplane crash in the Florida Everglades killed all 110 passengers onboard. In the fallout of the crash, ValueJet acquired the much smaller Airtrain Airways company (headquartered in Atlanta at the time) and once the two companies merged ValueJet (in trying to rid themselves of the stigma of the Florida crash) changed the new company’s name to Airtrain Airlines. Today, Airtrain Airlines is still low-costing compared to other airlines, but much more safe, and even boasts the only airfleet fully-equipped with wi-fi in every plane
