China Eastern MD-11 era in the 1990's

Tue Apr 14, 2020 1:34 am

I remember dropping someone off at Chicago O'Hare (ORD) in the 1990's going on a China Eastern MD-11. Apparently the flight to Shanghai stopped in Seattle and Beijing? What was the route? Also a friend flew a MU MD-11 from PVG to LAX in the 1990's as well. Where were the China Eastern MD-11's flying to before they were replaced with the A340 and later 77W.

China Eastern Flew SHA-PEK-SEA-ORD on Thursdays and Sunday’s according to the 1996 OAG.

They also flew them to BRU, FUK, LAX, MAD, and I’m sure several other places as well. They’re the only ones I could find

Hope that helps!

I am Pretty sure I saw MU MD-11 at LAX in 1992, first time I ever saw China Eastern, and that's well before they started services to Melbourne.

I flew one PEK-SHA back in March 1994; flight MU5183. It was my first MD-11 flight. I also remember the flight being very empty; I had the whole row of 9 seats to myself!
