If it happens, that'd be nice. Until it does, it's simply a rumor, so don't get your hopes up.


Something awful.

That would be cool. I always thought of their livery as AA only with better colors.
I'm not holding my breath though (ahem, Brannif, ahem). Big grin

Does the livery follow with the estate? You''d think so, but it could have been bought seperately. No?

Fun news so far. Hopefully we can enjoy something better than the current Pan Am if it gets going. I guess if it does Airbus won't be quite as happy as they were the last time Eastern took deliveries, but they'll probably make more money on this deal.

It may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Starting a new service with an old name could be pretty good marketing. Eastern had a great name although I doubt many of the general flying public today remember it. I'm just an old man with a pretty good memory.

That being said, if a carrier can start today being well capitalized from the get-go, I'd say they stand a pretty good chance because they don't have the "baggage" (pardon the pun) of the legacy carriers in terms of labor strife, seniority issues, old planes and probably very tired management. They can cherry pick cities to serve without having necessarily to go the Philly's of the world and still make a buck or two.

I'd be very happy to see a new airframe with the old Eastern logo. If it is true, I wish them much luck!

I have mixed feelings about this. Sure it is great to see the return of a once great name in aviation but what would these two companies have in common except for the logo and name ??
The concepts of the new Eastern has to be totally different and it has to struggle not only against the likes of Delta, United, US Airways, Continental but JetBlue, Virgin America, Spirit etc....
Eastern was once the airline of the US east coast but today I have the feeling that this place has been taken by JetBlue.

What one could be seeing here is the birth of a new generation of airlines. Not unlike the birth of the first generation of Delta, American, United and Continental...the new generation of airlines has the chance to start fresh and being able to learn from some of the mis-steps of their older industry mates. Southwest, JetBlue, Virgin America, Spirit are the new kids on the block.

I believe the airline industry is cyclical in that with a finite number of passengers to go around and a finite amount of airspace in which to fly. There aren't too many costs that you can strip out of an airline and still remain profitable without having to increase fare costs to provide for the expenses of the airline itself. What may indeed happen is the names might remain the same but internal structure and service/cost/revenue management will be a whole new ballgame.

The challenge for the new carriers will be finding people who are passionate about the business and are willing to work for lower wages in return for a larger piece of the pie later on. Of course, that's what happened to the legacies and we see what they are up against today.

Silver paint ? Also many EA planes were white (e.g. the A300s). Would be cool if the planes would have "whisper jet" painted on them.

It will be interesting to see if this new version of Eastern is able to get off of the ground so to speak. While the original Eastern has been gone for nearly 17 years and there is a generation who probably never even knew about the airline, but to some, especially those who maybe worked for the airline, it may reopen old wounds. The labor bloodbath that helped to escalate the downfall of the airline (Eastern probably would still be flying today if the unions would not have scuttled the buyout by a group led by former MLB Commissioner Peter Ueberroth by refusing to negotiate with them.). When Eastern folded, the unions actually declared "victory" over Frank Lorenzo (even though he had been ousted from Eastern nearly a year earlier by the bankruptcy court). Somewhere down the line, you just know the media or a union (Probably someone like the IAM) will try to throw the new Eastern under the bus by trying to link it to the old Eastern and invoke Lorenzo's name in the process.

As for the livery, I've pulled a few from MAP that I like:

Sounds good to me. Either one of those MAP liveries look 110% better than the "toilet bowl" cleaner that Spirit has introduced recently. The retro 1970's white top "hockey stick" livery looks especially good on the A319. Go new EA!

As crowded as the US domestic airline biz is, I would think there might be some place for a new EA. Embrace the 70's Go-Go image, bring back the hockey stick, the Wings of Man and Ionosphere Lounge. flight attendants in retro uniforms. Gates decorated in the two-tone blue + white (tulip chairs if you can find them) .

Then use a hybrid WN model - very reasonable walk-up fares, great excess inventory fares, point to point. Then add the new, great IFE, BOB (or B-on-line), business class. But charge for the value added services. then start looking at Latin America + Open Skies Europe -

I really think the world would embrace a great service airline that harkens to a younger time, but, that is accessible to all.


Well, I wish, anyway.

I dunno about that. I have a pretty good memory too, and the EA name was seriously bad. I'm not just talking the Lorenzo years, either; from pre-deregulation all the way through the 80s, most of our experiences with EA were unreliable aircraft (and general operation), inconsistent service, and in general a lack of visible effort on the part of the employees. There were exceptions, of course. I remember one pilot, some Captain Moriarty, who banked the 727-200 in both directions so both sides of the plane could see the Daytona Speedway we were directly overflying.  Silly But that was the exception, not the rule, and the overall association with the name is definitely negative.

Actually their planes were all white up to a point, then when they switched to silver the A300s were gray:

Time heals old wounds. Generally, by now any way, people romanticize about EA - they were such a powerhouse of the regulated era. I think it is possible to draw on that marketing angle. They'll be plenty of detractors, but, life is full of those anyway.

In reality, it is about a business plan - and - that is going to be tough - but start ups have the advantage of new planes and new work force.

In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if the airline biz, from this point forward, always a a group of start up airlines. They may come and go, but, there will always be a group of noobs.

EA is still alive in FL. It is basically the FL ATL operation with 717s and 737s instead of DC-9s and 727s. It is run my former EA management with the senior pilots even being EA pilots who crossed the line. The wounds are still there for many and in my opinion EA had it's day.

Turns out Herman Miller is making those tulip chairs again (only in recyclable plastic instead of fiberglass this time), and blue and white are available colors! And since they make airport seating, it probably wouldn't cost them much to make them airport-style.

Still, I would love to see a "new Eastern", complete with the hockey stick livery. But where would the hub be, or would it be P2P? There's so many congested hub airports on the East Coast...
