    Eastern Air Lines Group, Inc., (“Eastern”) has filed an application with the United States Department of Transportation for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. Eastern plans on commencing its Part 121 certification with the Federal Aviation Administration shortly and has retained legal counsel and consultants for this purpose.

    “We are honored to have the opportunity to launch an airline bearing the iconic Eastern Air Lines name,” said Eastern’s President and CEO Edward Wegel. “We have recruited a world class board of directors and a highly experienced management team to guide and lead this effort.”

    Thanks for posting, sobore! Wow, what's next, will TWA get resurrected? :rolleyes:

    One can only guess that perhaps the airline transportation business has become more highly profitable for this filing to occur? ;)

    Wow, that's an old name coming to life. They'll need more then the A320's and A319's to compete with the majors for longer-legged flights and eventually international, but at least it's a beginning and hopefully adds some good competition on fares, if they can make it.

    Wishing them luck with their iconic name. EA again ! Can the original National Airlines, Braniff, Canadian Airlines Int'l., TWA and others be far behind? Isn't there already a small PanAm flying in the U.S.?

    The revival of TWA would be the only reason I would dump DL! (Just keep Icahn away)
