What Was Eastern's Last Flight?

Sat Jul 02, 2005 10:45 pm

I know that Pan Am's last flight on 12/4/91 was flown by PA436, Boeing 727-200 Clipper Goodwill, Barbados-Miami, flown by Captain Mark Pyle.

But what about Eastern? A coworker and I have tried to find it but it's not that easy. Any help would be appreciated.

It was LGA-ATL, with a 727.

Late night flight like 11PM or something along those lines, I remember it well. Having a huge hub in Atlanta CNN had in-depth coverage.

Not to worry, nobody here knows everything there could possibly be to know. I'm glad you had the courage to ask!

ATL-VCV refers to a flight from Atlanta to the Victorville California airport, where hundreds of planes from airlines (defunct, in trouble, and even healthy carriers) are stored and/or scrapped.

The joke was that the last flight of EA was to ferry one of their planes to Victorville to await it's fate.

Thanks for that November Alpha, it makes sense now. I thought it was maybe referring to a crash or something judging by 727 lover's reaction.

I don't know the answer either, but I can tell you that the last Eastern flight into DCA was a big deal. Almost every employee that worked the ramp or in ops at DCA, not matter what airline they worked for, came out and watched as the last Eastern flight did a low pass over the field.

I flew home from Lima Peru on L1011 the last day of service. It was a sad day. The crew gave a full tour of the aircraft. My first time down below in a 1011 galley and it was cool to ride the lift and see their operation.

I always thought Eastern's final flight was a JFK-MIA run. Not sure if it was a 727, L1011 or probably a 757. Sad times indeed. Who'd ever think, that mighty Pan Am (the original) and Eastern would crash and burn in the same year! 1991.

I was on Eastern on January 4, 1991, just two weeks before the shutdown, SJU-ATL (L-1011) and ATL-LAX (A300). It was not a happy trip. Mechanics were on strike at SJU. The airplane was two hours late leaving SJU, and after one missed approach in the fog at ATL we were very late for our connection to LAX -- but to their credit they held the connection for our group. The mood among the cabin crews was somber, and a couple of them couldn't conceal their frustration and anger.

I know this photo is horrid, but it's all I have from that trip.

I thought the EA shut-down was very sudden? The last PA crew found out on their outbound sector, just hours before the final close. It seems most of the EA staff knew about it well in advance from the reports on here. When was the impending closure announced?

VCV, was not a civil aviation airport in 1991, it was an active George AFB. My wife was an Eastern F/A but she called in sick when she heard the rumors, and hence was not stranded somewhere.

The last Braniff Flight was from HNL to DFW, arriving on 5/13/82. BN operated one flight each day RT DFW-HNL-DFW. The westbound flight was airborne when the airline shut down, and the crew decided to fly back the plane with passengers rather than empty.

Technically, ATL - VCV is correct - The initial post did not specific last revenue, scheduled flight - just the "last flight". So, I guess ATL - VCV is the correct answer  Smile

I was going through my fathers log books, he was an EAL captain on the L1011 at the time. He was enroute to SFO from ATL at the time of the strike in '89. That was his last flight on an EAL aircraft.

Incorrect. Last flight was indeed a 727 Barbados-Miami on 04DEC91. It made one last low pass over MIA before coming in and closing the book on a great chapter in commercial aviation.

Eastern stopped flying to JFK after the strike.

I remember this (I might be wrong) Eastern's last revenue flight was an L-1011 landing in MIA (after aborted landing & turnaround)

EA planes did not park at VCV until few weeks later after shutdown.

According to an article titled "In final touchdown, faithful workers land hard
Most brace for turbulent financial ride" in the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

"When the last Eastern Airlines flight landed at Hartsfield International Airport precisely at midnight Friday, the crew joined the ranks of the unemployed. After the jet gently kissed the runway in a textbook landing, flight attendant Joan Benesick, who worked for Eastern 24 of its 62 years, spoke into the public address system with a strong but unsteady voice: Flight 409 from New York's La Guardia Airport was the final flight into Eastern's Atlanta hub. The airline's battle to survive ban kruptcy was over. Except for a reporter and a few tired businessmen, most passengers were Eastern employees returning to Atlanta and an uncertain future. When the last Eastern Airlines flight landed at Hartsfield International Airport precisely at midnight Friday, the crew joined the ranks of the unemployed.

After the jet gently kissed the runway in a textbook landing, flight attendant Joan Benesick, who worked for Eastern 24 of its 62 years, spoke into the public address system with a strong but unsteady voice:

"As of midnight tonight, Eastern Airlines no longer exists. We'd like to thank you for your patronage for the past 60 years. Good night and goodbye."

The director at a local FBO that I flew in and out of was an EAL 757 Capt.
As a fan of EAL, I asked him about his last flight and he said he was airborne LAS-MIA(I think, may have been ATL) when he got the word.
That has GOT to make the remainder of the flight pretty sad.

He was probably referring to the strike in 1989. Many ex-Easterners consider March 4, 1989 to be the end.

Here is the final route map: http://www.airchive.com/Timetables%2...Eastern%20Compressed/EAmap9101.jpg

If I remember correctly, however, San Antonio was not restarted before the end came on January 18, 1991.
