When I was a kid a remember hearing the term 'flag carrier' a lot and I thought, well, that must be because it's the national airline. But, the US has no national carrier and Pan Am, TWA, so on had flags on their aircraft. So I figured that it must be because the carrier flies international routes. But there are domestic carriers that display the national flag as well. Any answers?
Thanks for the input.
