Report/Rumor: Eastern Air Lines To Be Reborn With A319s

What one could be seeing here is the birth of a new generation of airlines. Not unlike the birth of the first generation of Delta, American, United and Continental...the new generation of airlines has the chance to start fresh and being able to learn from some of the mis-steps of their older industr...

Since when is doing something 60% of the time worth a bonus? I find that the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. Years ago, anything under 70% was considered a failure and certainly not worth of a bonus. It's no wonder the quality of what we see in the airline industry and for that matter the rest...

Report/Rumor: Eastern Air Lines To Be Reborn With A319s

It may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Starting a new service with an old name could be pretty good marketing. Eastern had a great name although I doubt many of the general flying public today remember it. I'm just an old man with a pretty good memory. That being said, if a carrier can start tod...
