Braniff also began flights to South America, later merging with its rival Panagra in 1967. It had a reputation for innovation in the airline industry, but suffered heavily when deregulation of that industry began in the United States in the late 1970s.
The airline went bankrupt and ceased operations on May 12, 1982. In 1984, a new airline with the same name was formed, but only survived until 1989. In 1991, Braniff came back but only survived until one year later.
The Braniff Logo is shown at the end of every episode of South Park.

Braniff International’s history can be traced back to 1928, when Oklahoma insurance man and financier Thomas E. Braniff, organized and founded an aviation company with his brother Paul Revere Braniff, a former WWI pilot.
A new independent Braniffairline operation was incorporated in Oklahoma City on November 3, 1930 under the name of BraniffAirways, Inc. Tom Braniff served as president and Paul Braniff served as secretary-treasurer.
In 1959, Braniff entered the jet age with the introduction of Boeing 707 and British BAC-111 jets in 1965.
