““Full pay ‘til the last day” -Eastern Airlines labor slogan”

Eastern could have been a great airline too. But the unions tried to act like the UAW and play ‘hardball’.

Eastern had lots of problems, not just the Unions. But the failure to accept a new reality by the unions is what eventually shut the airline.

It was worth far more in pieces, than as a going concern, in the end.
