Eastern's First 737-800 Arrival

Fri Dec 19, 2014 1:59 am

N276EA is almost here. Attention MIA spotters. Would be great to see this beauty arrive and see Eastern back after a near 24 year hiatus. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N276EA

These are actual pictures of the actual plane delivered to an actual new airline called Eastern Airlines and based out of MIA.

Judging by all the ridiculous consolidation that should never have been permitted, we absolutely need another airline, or two, or three.

  One of the few silver linings/sunshine besides our expansion plans (WN) in this otherwise cruddy year. At least we can now associate 2014 with the revival of Eastern. Otherwise this year to me is known for Ebola, Isis and "Let It Go" (Frozen). Do we know where Eastern will have it's gates and ticketing at MIA?

According to Wikipedia, the US has 14 "mainline" carriers. Not all of them serve all markets. Go on any flight tracking site, and you'll see mostly DL, AA, and US, with a smattering of the smaller mainlines (B6, WN, AS, HA, etc). I think another airline would be good for this country, if it has enough capital to get enough equipment to compete.

I'm glad they are going with the white background as opposed to the bare metal mouth look. Back in the day at first I liked the metal look but came to prefer the white background for Eastern.

That dumb CNN article is headlined "Eastern Air Lines is back in the air." However, the article itself says that they will start flying in March 2015, according to their "founder", as a charter airline and grow from there. Guess they (or the DOT) learned from the PeoplExpress debacle.

Or maybe not.

I think what you really mean is that they plan to operate their own aircraft, whereas PEX had someone else operating the aircraft. Who owns the aircraft, whether it is leased or not, it really makes no difference. It's just a financing mechanism. It is, however, as you pointed out, a greater responsibility and burden to operate your own plane. However, nothing about the PEX debacle had anything whatsoever to do, as best as I can tell, with the fact that another carrier operated the aircraft. Arguably, if PEX were well funded, that would have given them more flexibility in irops, or at least equivalent flexibility, not less. Instead, it had everything to do, as best as I can tell, with PEX not having enough money to pay for the service that it wanted to provide. And that was because of, in my opinion, a very flawed plan, at least at an abstract level.

My uncle was an Eastern captain and died in a midair collision over Carmel, NY on December 4, 1965. Because of him I decided to work in the airline industry.

Captain Charles J. White would be very proud to see the "hockey stick" back in the air.

All best wishes to Eastern and their staff. Fly proud and fly safe.

I doubt the new Eastern will ever move to scheduled service and will quietly fold eventually. I don't understand the point in reviving a failed business and then adhering so closely to an image that already died an ignoble death.

Hope you are wrong on that one. 1991 might as well be the history of the Roman Empire. In today's hurry up society almost anyone under the age of 30 don't know or care. They are more concerned with the latest I Phone updates or what the "Kartrashians" are doing or having relations with. We aviation nuts are the few that care or remember Eastern. I think this endeavor just might make it. They seem to be methodical and organized. Sponsoring fashion week in Miami which is a big ado in the MIA area and an outlay of some serious investment.

Mine, too. Just passed away last year. Flew Flying Fortresses in WW2 then returned and got a job with Eastern. Got hijacked to Cuba after Mariel Boatlift, but kept flying, of course. Basically lost his pension when the Machinists put the airline out of business. He was forced to retire way too early, as he was a poster boy for basing retirement decisions on more than just age: almost to his death, he was amazingly-fit and tan...a square-jawed Adonis type who ran on, or rowed along, the beach every morning.

The key to success is a good leadership team, and strong financial backing. The new Eastern has both of those. They have systematically put this venture together, with minimal media attention. Something tells me that this venture is very serious.

It would seem to me that their best chance for success is to get stabilized as a charter operator and then approach a much larger Airline for a potential acquisition (presumably B6.). B6 then takes over Eastern and rebrands their operations as the new Eastern Air Lines. I really think this would be a win/win for both carriers. The new Eastern, no matter how successful or well funded they are is not going to be able to reconstruct the L-EAL route structure since they will never be able to acquire the necessary slots at DCA, LGA, EWR and JFK in large enough quantities to be competitive with the Big 4. I do think the Eastern brand still has a lot of value and feel like if done right that the brand could be restored to its former glory on the East coast, but they are going to need a lot of help for that to happen. That's why I think a strategic acquisition by B6 in order to get the Eastern branding rights would make the new Eastern Air Lines a legitimate force to be recond with on the East coast. It would also give them the proper scale they need to compete with these much larger Airlines.

Then they should have bought Airbus.

Honestly, the jetBlue name is more recognized and has far better branding these days.

Bad example.....and they're scrambling for every 737 they can....they've cut dozens of routes.

Why's it a bad example? They were able to dump a large number of frames, even of a type that's not in especially high demand. Dumping 738s would be much easier, partly for exactly the reason you posted: WN would snap them up in a heartbeat.

I'd take 88 717s too if someone paid me $100MM to get them off their hands.

Just remember easyJet started with 2 wet leased Boeings and as my mother said, 'do not despise small small beginnings'

I wish the best of luck to this venture. Nice looking bird too. Do they have an IATA code yet?

I don't understand the point in reviving a failed business and then adhering so closely to an image that already died an ignoble death.

It hasn't stopped these failed (bankrupt) airlines. United, Delta, American, Hawaiian, Frontier, Sun Country.
