Can anyone tell why Eastern's DC-10's had the name "Eastern", written so far back on the fuselage in comaparison to the L1011's?

Jpz1991, you just beat me to that post with the pictures in it... Big grin

I have no idea - looks strange, though...

Quite simple, actually. It was due to the spacing of the doors. The DC-10 had the 1 and 2 doors positioned farther forward and closer together with not enough room for the logo and name between them, as on the L1011.

Wow... I had no idea... Beautiful birds, though...

Couldn't they just paint over the doors, anyway?

That doesn't make much sense. There are other such as Pan Am that painted over the doors...

From what Gr8slvrflt wrote, I'd say that the placing of the logo and name between the doors that way was specific to Eastern - other airlines have other guidelines as to where they put their name and/or logo.

Besides LGW, the Tens were also used from MIA to JFK, LAX, EZE and GIG. They were also intended for MAD but that route was cancelled after Lockerbie. I think all three ships found their way to Continental.

Gr8slvrflt,

I have seen pictures of the DC-10's in BOS and SJU as well as those other cities you mentioned. Do you have any idea where they flew in from and were going to?

Also, I was told Eastern used the DC-10 on the "Business Break" Travel Reward flights to HNL from ATL. Is that correct?

The DC-10 stopped in Atlanta once or twice as a diversion or equipment substitution only. Don't know about Boston or San Juan. The Business Break used an L1011 with a fuel stop in Los Angeles (I think it only actually operated once).
