LOL, about the DC9's. I would think EA would still have the MIA hub as well as ATL.
They would've still had the 757's flying as well as 777's and a maybe a mix of 767's
& maybe 330's. They would have a large fleet of 738's and 320 & 319's.

Hard to say. One could argue that some aspects of Eastern have remained in present day United.
Perhaps CO would have been merged into EA or something along those lines. Recalling that a lot of CO's product line, such as SHARES and One Pass originated with Eastern (System One pawned off from EA, sold to CO, eventually became SHARES yada yada yada.) CO's 1990s survival was certainly at the expense of EA.
Can't argue history though. From day one of Texas Air ownership, Lorenzo wanted EA dead and CO to survive at rock bottom labor costs. Lorenzo hated EA's unions with a passion and it showed.

I know EA had 2 hubs Mia and Atl. What other hubs did they have?
Those two are the only ones that come to mind. What other hubs might thy have considered.
As I mentioned above what would there fleet look like today?
I remember, flying back then was a glorious time, better service and got meal
service on almost all flights. If you flew first class men wore suit and ties & women dressed professional.
Nowadays you buy a first class ticket would could wear damn near anything you want short of your underwear
service is the pits & if your lucky you'll get a meal on one. Sad to see how its become.
