AIRLINERS.NET CREW CHAT OPERATOR
As I recall:
The Tristars ended up with DL, CX and odd ones and twos to smaller airlines like Faucett Peru, Air Transat and LTU
Dc-9s to TWa, NWA, AeroMexico, TAESA, Midway mk1 (which ended up next to their EA brethren quickly) and others,
727s spread to almost ever corner of the globe, those that flew on anyways, some remain in Ea colors in the desert to this day, NW, DL, Air Atlanta, FedEx all got more than a few -200s, most of the -100s died except the QCs which went to FedEx.
A300s, some to CO, some stored until PanAm Mk2 and Carnival bought some, most of the remaining ones in service are now flying cargo, but most are living on in other forms of aluminum
And the 2 DC-10s went to CO
As for the 757s, they mostly went to USAir, some to Air 2000, monarch, Nationair and a few other smaller ops.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

If I recall correctly Lorenzo ripped the newer A300's off EA and sent them to CO along with the 2 DC10's and the Eastern res system (then charged EA to use their own res system...nice). Some of the uprated 722's went to Miami Air and was the core of their fleet for years...and some 722's did go to PA. A long standing rumor on the L10's was that DL got their hands on a few and tore em down for parts and found drugs still hidden.

Quoting falstaff (Reply 12): There is, or maybe was, this 727 sitting at HGR. Why is it there? Is it still there?
No, both 727's in HGR were scrapped about two years ago. Luckily, I was able to tour the Eastern one just before they took it apart. The cockpit had been gutted years ago, and the passenger cabin had all sidewalls and seat covers removed. The only sign that this had been an EAL aircraft was the F/A jumpseat, which was still covered in the brown pin-stripe upholstery.
The Pan Am 727 had a better looking interior and still maintained grey leather seats.
On a side note, N308EA went on to Delta, as stated above, and eventually ended up as the prop in the television series, "Lost."

dtw9, that is a great list.
I thought Northwest/Delta has one of the DC-9-51s from Eastern. There is a DC-9-51 with the letters EA in its registration, but I don't see that any went to Northwest.
I had no idea that Northwest got its DC-9-15s from Eastern nor did I know there were DC-9-15s still flying with Eastern when they folded. Or did these DC-9-15s first go with Republic before Northwest bought Republic out?
