Northeast Yellow Birds To Make Come Back?

Wed Apr 27, 2016 1:39 am

Hello,

I was doing some research on old Northeast Airlines and came across the following:

Does anyone know if this is legit and if it is, when will they make a come back and what is their business plan/model.

Always heard rumblings about NE...this website dated 1015 and seems fairly aggressive. The 737 pix appear to be 737max. The northeast US seems pretty full of aircraft now...interesting.

For a moment I thought you were talking about this yellow bird:

This seems to have to most details about it so far:

Been quiet recently about any launch though.

Pipe dream. Stupid plan as well.

I think this article says it all: http://www.recordonline.com/article/20160121/BUSINESS/160129883

I'm not holding my breath, but I'd love to see a return of that livery.

I doubt very much that Delta has any rights to the name Northeast Airlines as Delta acquired Northeast in about 1972. I am sure the name was up for the taking and it was acquired by someone who thought they could make some money with it later.

Doesn't look legit to me. Looks like another PanAm IV, Brainiff XVI, etc...
As the famous A.net line goes - I'll believe it when I see it.

I've heard this come up several times recently, and, like Pan Am and Braniff, there have been several recent incarnations of Northeast, the most recent being, I believe, a Bolivian charter operator - I saw an L1011 at DAL a couple of years ago in maintenance at one of the local shops.
Beyond that, this is problematic, as I can't imagine many people remember Northeast, as they were absorbed by Delta back in 1972.

Looks like they own the brand .. I'm sure if it's not legal the "real" owner will find out soon ..

Nice to see that logo again .. flew to Bermuda with them often .. great fun!

It's not legit, and quite honestly, looks like a graphic designer's term project.

It's not legit. This was discussed in another thread a while ago.
That's not how this works! That's not how any of this works!

It's funny looking at the old photos of the airline northeast in the us and the northeast uk airline
They both had very similar livery yet I believe they were entirely separate. Perhaps the uk one was a bit of a copy as it
Came after.
The us airline merged into delta I believe . Would like the website to be true looks nice . Since eastern has made a return
It could be possible

I noticed that Volare's address is 200 E. Randolph Street in Chicago, IL. That is the Aon Center, formerly the Amoco Building and Standard Oil Building. Rent in that building is pricey, especially on the 51st floor, which would have a pretty spectacular view. Assuming that the office is there, there must be some sort of cash or financing, in order to pay the rent.

I found Northeast Airlines on Facebook, and it's been updated within the past month. The airline claims that it wants to make SWF its northeast hub.

But, I'll believe it, when friends of mine who are commercial pilots see Northeast jets operating at commercial airports.

That scam artist "AJ Rossi" is at it again? This guy is a total joke. He claimed he was bringing Pan Am back last year with a HQ on Park Avenue.

As a sidenote, Northeast was the launch customer and first operator of the 727-200.

This was the first 727-200 built, 1st flight August 16, 1967, delivered to Northeast January 29, 1968. Sold by DL to Piedmont in 1982.

And this was the first 727-200 in service, the 4th built, delivered to Northeast December 11, 1967. Also sold by DL to Piedmont in 1982.

The British airline named Northeast Airlines together with Cambrian Airways were subsidiaries of British Air Services. It in turn was owned, along with Channel Islands and Scottish Airways, by BEA.

As its name suggests Northeast Airlines operated domestic and European services from NE England, primarily from NCL. Cambrian Airways operated out of CWL. The geographic operations of Channel Islands and Scottish Airways are self explanatory.

Apart from the BEA subsidiaries detailed above and their Mainline domestic and European flights, BEA brought two other operations to the merger with BOAC . They were BEA Helicopters (based at LGW) and BEA's Internal German Services.

At the time of the BEA / BOAC operational merger Northeast had a fleet of four HS Trident 1Es and six Vickers Viscount 806s. All ten aircraft were absorbed into the new BA. In the summer of 1973 these aircraft and many of those operated by other BEA subsidiaries were the first to be painted with the titles of the embryonic British Airways.
