How were the Eastern 757s disposed following EA's shut down? Did USAir pick them up?

Yes you're right. I beleive that most of Eastern 757's went to US Air in the early 90's. I remember the Eastern 757 with the big numbers 7 5 7 painted on the tail, I flew on one from NY La Guardia to Atlanta back in 1985. Eastern was the first airline, with British Airways, to introduce the 757.

Hi,

Some of Eastern's 757's are operating in the UK with Air 2000 and Airtours international.

Craig,
You're right, most of Eastern's 757s except the following went to US Air,
N504EA joined Airtours as G-JALC
N505EA joined Airtours as G-PIDS
N507EA joined Airtours as G-JRGR
N510EA joined Airtours as G-MCEA
N521EA joined Air 2000 as G-OOOV
N522EA joined Air 2000 as G-OOOW
N523EA joined Air 2000 as G-OOOM

These aircraft were extensively refiurbished with new seats, new IFE systems, all now have full IFE systems etc...

Some are also in storage at Marana. I saw pics of some. Hopefully they will get picked up and begin a new life.

I think all the ex-Eastern 757s are now in service, the aircraft that Airtours took were in storage, because they didn't take them until 1995.

I just remembered NASA also has an ex-Eastern 757 that it uses as a research aircraft.

Wasn't the Birgen-Air 757 (crashed at Dom. Rep.) an ex-Eastern?

I remember reading somewhere that some of their '57's went to America West. Was my source incorrect or am I just getting old?

I made a proper check and found out Eastern's 757s are now with the following airlines;

LTU (2)
Airtours International (4)
Air 2000 (3)
America West (4)
Nasa (1)
US Airways (11)

+ Birgenair 757 that crashed out of POP

Mexican Government has a VIP 757-225, which was built for, but never delivered to Eastern.
One of Airtours' 757s was also operated by MGM Grand Air, some of LTU's 757s were also operated by LTE.

N907AW of America West is a 757-225, so it must have been built for Eastern.

But most of America West's 757's were former Republic machines. They had the Rolls-Royce engine and not compatible with Northwests 757 fleet when they merged in 1987.

I was under the impression that because both Eastern & Continental were both owned by Texas Air, CO would have picked up the 757's
