Re: There’s something special about XXX plane

Anything in the DC9 family. We are mounted engines. 2×3 seating. It’s just different than most other mainline aircraft. It's pretty similar to the Fokker F-28 series (including F-70 / F-100). In that way it's not unique. The BAC 1-11 and Sud-Aviation Caravelle also shared this design. Just today, I...

Re: 1986 Eastern sale to Texas Air

I believe, in 1988, Carl Icahn (TWA) attempted to acquire Eastern from Texas Air. It was his decision to pull out.

Before the 1986 sale, many airlines sought pieces of Eastern. Merger was out of question. Sad showdown.

Merger between Eastern and Pan Am would be a good one.
