Eastern Airlines Radio Show Blog Talk


Eastern has always been an airline of “firsts” and the radio show is carrying on that tradition and Legacy. Each show that goes into our EAL Radio Broadcast archives tells the hosts, that Eastern people enjoy talking and hearing about the “old” and the “new” as we like to think of our beloved Eastern Airlines. We discuss Airline History, Stories, News, Aircrafts, Airline Humor and even Airline Commercials to approximately 1000 listeners.


Our broadcast schedule is every Monday from 7:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M EDT.

Round-table Discussion:

Single Cockpit Pilot?

 

The topic of our next EAL Radio Show, Episode 379 on Monday, August 20, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. EDT is a Round-table Discussion: Single Cockpit Pilot. A very hot topic that discusses why one pilot in the Cockpit spells DANGER.

 

The aircraft being designed today needs more than one pilot on the flight deck to ensure the safety of the passengers and crew. Just the instrument panel and operations on these large aircrafts alone, require more than just one pilot on that aircraft.  In fact, a minimum two-person flight crew is necessary to manage the flight deck workload and protect against the potential incapacitation of one pilot. Operating a second crewmember in a remote location would jeopardize the quality of Crew Resource Management (CRM) and Crew coordination. It would also put the lives of people on the aircraft—and on the ground—at great risk. 

 

Captain Neal and our Hosts of Pilots will discuss this "hot topic" and you'll hear the reasons why the proposed bill to allow Single Cockpit Pilot should not go into effect. We look forward to August 20, 2018 to have you join Neal and our hosts live, by calling into our program at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT. Join in with your thoughts on the subject.

What Happens to My Luggage on Airlines?

 

The topic of our next EAL Radio Show, Episode 382 on Monday, September 17, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. EDT tells us a little bit of  "What Happens to My Luggage at Airlines?"


Well your luggage definitely has a route that it takes once you either have Sidewalk Check in or prefer to check luggage at the Ticket Counter. The Ticketing Agent tags the luggage with your destination, either your final destination or if  connections then the tag indicates both, i.e., PBI/CLT/CHS. Once landed at CLT, the baggage goes down the conveyor belt, and placed onto a baggage cart and transferred to the final destination aircraft for your flight to CHS. International flight baggage is handled differently, and not allowed at sidewalk Check-in at some airports. At the final destination, i.e., Charleston, S.C. the baggage comes off the aircraft, placed onto the baggage cart and then onto a conveyor belt that carries it to the Passenger luggage carousel.

We know how crucial baggage handling can be and the system at an airport plays a specific role in keeping passengers happy. It also can make the difference in an airport's ability to attract or keep a major airline hub ("an airport that serves as a central connecting point".


We look forward to September 17, 2018 to have you join Neal and our hosts live by calling into our program at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT to talk with us. Please, those that do call in but want to listen, mute you phone to avoid any background noises.
