Eastern's name and logo are the property of the Estate of Eastern Air Lines Inc. They still maintain offices and a small staff in Miami to oversee pension and legal matters. Most of the staff are the last remaining employees of EAL.
My father-in-law worked for EAL for 24 years (proudly wears his Hat In The Ring pin to church every Sunday) and periodically gets mailings from the EAL Estate.

I have to disagree. As much as the old airlines are memorable, I don't think that the names of old airlines should be reused, ever. It's a shame that the Braniff name had 2 reincarnations, and now the same with PanAm. The name especially should not be reused when the new company has nothing whatsoever to do with the original company, except that they bought the name.
