Eastern Airlines requests reactivation and applies for New York JFK - Anchorage - Jinan, China.

In 2018 the government of Alaska said there would be an Alaska-China flight in 2019, although this probably isn't it.

"The flight would stop in Anchorage to refuel and also to allow passengers to travel on either of the shorter segments as well as the full journey. It hopes to launch the service in July 2019."

Eastern is what was Dynamic. Shared owners with Swift Air now. People involved are legit.

that governor is gone and is replaced by a total nut job.

As an anchorage resident I will never ever take this flight.

Its really just part of their ongoing China flying sold by Chinese tour operators.

They have had on and off LAX service for a few years now from places like Changsha and Nanchang along with service to Saipan and Guam from China

Has the human race ran out of airline name ideas??? Maybe in 50 years time or so when no one has a clue who EA were
It's becoming cruel how the Eastern brand is being used from one short lived venture to what looks to be another.

2w 767 filled with low yield Chinese tourists can't be a sound business idea surely? The cost of flying the 767 that far and using ANC will surely mean the red pen comes out.

Here's a hint; if you just used the ICAO codes you wouldn't have to append (China) because IT'S CODIFIED IN THE DESIGNATOR.

ZSJN

ZS == China

The crazy thing is that the airline applied for traffic rights using the ICAO codes, but someone took it upon themselves to 'translate' them to IATA codes and thereby discard useful information.
