Interesting article about the possible re-birth of Eastern Airlines. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/13/uk-china-airshow-idUSLNE8AC00N20121113 Quote from article: "In a surprise move, the state manufacturer also announced tentative purchase plans by investors said to be planning to resurrect U.S.-based Eastern Air Lines, which went bankrupt in 1991. There have been sporadic reports of efforts to relaunch the airline, whose forked logo was seen on display as a backdrop to Tuesday's signing ceremony.........Shi addressed a packed hall of Chinese airline executives and media, but there were no other top executives present from the U.S. carrier which Shi said had been reconstituted in 2008 in Miami, the original hub of Eastern. He said the airline, which included some previous employees of the bankrupted group, was shopping for planes to start services late next year from Miami to unspecified destinations in Latin America." Maybe just pie in the sky stuff, but who knows?
