Re: Last EVA Air Cargo 747-400 ops in May 2019

Last commercial flight should be a LAX-TPE on June 2nd. Sources : RoutesOnline: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/a...

That was one close call though.

The aircraft never loss separation with the AC flight so no TCAS, only EPGWS because of Mount Wilson.

Currently, 28 flights are cancelled. Number of flights operated today should be better than the next few days, as the strike did not start till 6am (reporting time, not departure time). Pilots must report 2-2.5 hours prior to flight so the 6am time gave the morning bank the ability to depart.
