The merger between new Pan American World Airways and Carnival Air Lines has gone ahead, reviving the plans which were abandoned in August 1996, when the two airlines failed to agree terms for a deal. Pan Am was reborn in September 1996, when it began offering low-cost long-haul scheduled services, using four leased ex-Eastern Airlines Airbus A300B4s. Carnival, based in Miami, Florida, is an affiliate of the cruise line of the same name and operates a range of largely charter services.
