RE: Was Eastern Ever Considered A Good Airline

I flew EA a few times as a kid, mostly A300s out of Miami. Maybe it's because I was a cute little boy, but all the FAs were amazing and I developed a little crush for the Whisperliners at that time!

RE: KLM's Link To Melbourne, Yet No Service Downunder

KLM has also used cities that are no longer served by blue metal, for instance the city of Freetown (PH-BFF), the city of Orlando (PH-BFO) and the city of Karachi (PH-BFK) on 74Es.

You're right, KLMyank!

No general rule for former 767 pilots. My FO is headed for the 777 (FO) and the captain is off to the 744 (captain).

Cabin Crew is a different thing (since we get to fly 3 types) and most of those flying 767 will 'trade' that for either MD11, 777 and A330.
