Four O'Clock: Nationalizing

Four O'Clock Factoid is a daily feature on Track Twenty-Nine helping to get you through the workday with a bit of useless knowledge.

Railpax was the intended brand name for the National Railroad Passenger Corporation. At the last minute, the name was changed to Amtrak. The NRPC was formed in 1970 and service began in May 1971.

I'm wondering what the name of a nationalized air passenger system would be, if some combination of security freak-out and oil prices proves to be too much for the airlines. Airpax?
