How did we miss this? Eastern Air Lines is coming back. Or at least some people have bought the rights to the name and for God knows what reason are looking to revive an airline that was, at least in its last years, reviled. What could go wrong?
Did you know they signed an order for 10 737-800s? I didn’t either. And 10 737 MAX aircraft. Who knew?
I noticed all of this today because they announced that the owner of the Florida Panthers has invested some of his hard-earned dollars in this.
They’ve announced nothing about the business, other than they’re based down in Florida and they sponsored Miami Fashion Week, which suggests that they’ll be based down there.
They’re hiring, so if you’re a pilot, HR specialist, or a manager of charter operations, they’d like to hear from you.
