On the March 2,1989 timetable, EA had about 290 mainline. On March 4, they had one departure. By 1990, they had built back ATL pretty good with about 270 mainline. I think FL has passed this, but with smaller aircraft, probably less total seats.
Hope that helps. And YES, I did count all the flights in the timetables!
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?

JAL also served ATL back then 2x weekly, but had a stop enroute, ANC I believe, 742

I remember flying EA in May 1990....EWR-ATL-DAB,
(ARNK) MCO-ATL-EWR....The strike was still going on
and they had strikers manning the informational picketing
tables set up in the EA concourse with tape around it on
the floor showing the border....anyone remember this?
I also remember the female ticket and gate agents
wearing hats with their new uniforms.
