Oceanic Airlines is the fictional airline that operated Flight 815 which crashed on the Island. The Oceanic Airlines logo has 18 dots spread around concentric circles, creating a total of 4 circles. Also, when the letters of the name are counted they add up to 15 and when the logo is used as an "O" in the Oceanic Airlines heading, it has 16 dots spread around it. The logo incorporates a motif that is reminiscent of Australian Aboriginal glyphs.
According to Oceanic Airlines' website, it was founded in 1974, and served other destinations such as Costa Rica, London, and Seoul. Also according to the website, it ceased operations as a result of financial difficulties due to the crash of Flight 815, however this information isn't canon and in "" we learn that the airline is still operational. Possibly to remedy this contradiction, on December 28th 2007 a press release appeared on ABC Medianet announcing the Oceanic's return to the airways. It also revealed a new website: Flyoceanicair.com. It seems the case that Oceanic Airlines had canceled all flights whilst conducting an investigation into Flight 815's disappearance. However, after failing to find anything, the company was pushed to close the case so that they could resume flights and recover from loss of business. This decision to conclude all passengers dead with no solid proof has resulted in opposition from individuals such as Sam Thomas, the main protagonist in the second Lost alternate reality game, Find 815. Ironically, Thomas was eventually directly involved in the find of the wreckage deep withing the Sunda Trench.

In Chapter I of his book, Civilization and Its Discontents, Sigmund Freud discusses a letter he recieved from his friend, the French novelist and mystic Romain Rolland. In this letter, Rolland describes what he calls the "Oceanic" feeling - that is, a feeling of eternity, a deep and innate connection with all things, a "oneness" with the world. Rolland, a "man of faith," sees this "Oceanic" feeling as being the primal source of all religion, but itself independent of any particular religion. Freud, an atheist and avowed "man of science" disagrees. While he admits that many people may experience this "Oceanic" feeling, he locates its source not in some mystical feeling of connection, but in an infantile helplessness experienced when confronted with a hostile world and the subsequent longing for the protection and guidance of the father. For Freud, this "Oceanic" feeling is "sustained by fear of the superior power of Fate."
