 "The Big Three, MIA, ATL & NYC

 (JFK, LGA & EWR)"


The EAL Radio Show presents Episode 410, April 22, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT with "The Big Three, MIA, ATL & JFK" and Neal will outline our The Big Three. America is home to many Int'l airports from JFK in NYC to Hartsfield-Jackson in ATL to MIA in Miami, FL. These airports serve as main hubs for big carriers. The bigger airports tend to have the most direct Int'l. and domestic flight routes, which make it faster and more convenient to travel. Plus, they're usually more affordable compared to flying through small regional airports—meaning worth braving the crowds. Let's take a quick look.

Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida (MIA) is the former home airport of our beloved Eastern; also Eastern Airlines Group, now Eastern Airlines LLC. It too, is the main U.S. gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean. MIA has the largest number of global passengers after JFK Int'l. and the main hub for American who took over the many routes to this major Florida city, since Eastern closed. Next is:

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, GA (ATL) which is the busiest airport in the world, more than 100 million passengers a year. A two-hour flight from many large American cities, making it an easy, central layover for connecting flights. The Main hub for Delta Airlines. Then onto:

John F. Kennedy Int'l Airport, NYC (JFK) formerly Idlewild is the main airport for NYC. Sees arrivals and departures from almost every Int'l airline in the world. JFK handles most Int'l flights while LaGuardia Int"l (LGA) also in Queens, is more popular for domestic flights. Newark Int'l. Airport (EWR) NJ handles both domestic and international flights. It's a bit further from the city than the other two airports, but less crowded and has more modern facilities.

Eastern Airlines Mexico and
Cinco de Mayo

The EAL Radio Show for Episode 411 on Monday, April 29, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT presents Eastern's Mexico and Cinco de Mayo. Usually this Holiday takes place on the fifth of May, as this is the date the holiday is celebrated. The Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War was on this date, though it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico. However, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

Eastern had the Mexico Silver Sleeper (DST) that flew on the Mexico route and in June 1956 at the time of the acquisition with a Canadian airlines, Eastern Airlines diversified into Mexico. On July 23, 1957, it began a New York-New Orleans-Mexico City service using DC-7 aircraft though in terms of its fleet, Eastern was quick to adopt jet planes. In April 1957 the first of 12 Convair 440s arrived with service into Mexico City.

Episode 412

Monday, May 6, 2019

 At 7:00 P. M. EDT



The EAL Radio Show presents Episodes 412, May 6, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT with an episode very dear to our Eastern Pilots.  


The Retired Eastern Pilots Association (REPA) began their magazine Newsletter "REPArtee" in 1977.  REPArtee was started to introduce the Association and all their efforts. We will hear more of the contents of this magazine and the efforts being made to continue this magazine. It is our good fortunate to have both the former REPArtee Editor, Captain Neal and the current REPArtee Editor, Captain Jim with us for this program.


Eastern Captain Bill Malone was “REPA” Editor for 15-years and had his spin of many changes to the magazine. Upon his retirement, our own Captain Neal Holland became Editor of “REPArtee, from 2000-2003 and Neal, too, made his significant changes. He instituted 3 issues per year of the REPArtee magazine and is known for the change of binding of the REPArtee from Saddle Stitching to Bound, started the REPA Memorials, and began the REPA website. Captain Neal then turned the reins as Editor of REPArtee over to Captain Jim Holder and Jim has continued as Editor to produce this wonderful magazine and the REPA website. He too made his significant changes, one being the inclusion of the Memorials for all their fallen Pilots placed on their website and in the issues.

Episode 413

Eastern's Air Cargo &

History of Air Freight


The EAL Radio Show presents another great memory of Eastern Air Cargo & History of Air Freight in Episode 411, May 13, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. Remember the Eastern Airlines 727QC aircraft, doesn't this photo bring back memories, especially to our Eastern Ramp & Air Freight employees?


Neal will relay some of the history of how Colonial Airlines began in 1923 and later acquired the 1st domestic Air Mail Contract under the Kelly Act of 1925. Colonial then established a scheduled service between Boston Logan and New York several months after the start of the war and engaged in cargo operations for the Air Transport Command, somewhat similar to Eastern's Military Transport Division, with routes were from NY north and east through New England, and west to Chicago. Four days before the end of WWII, the CAB extended the route system to include N.Y to Ottawa and Washington to Montreal and Ottawa. Eight more intermediate stops were also authorized and service was inaugurated on Feb. 16, 1946.


Colonial on April 25, 1946 was awarded the International routes from New York and Washington to Bermuda. Join us to hear Neal share more History by calling in on May 13, 2019 at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT as we depart the gate. Listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to:
