““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’.

I don't remember that one, but I thought they did say they would last one day longer than the airline. Eastern Airlines, a belligerent, stupid union and bad management weren't a good combination. However, I believe all the major airlines from that time ended up in bankruptcy at least once.

(I say the union was stupid because there was no way they could replace the pay they were getting for the work they did.)

Interesting that they don't mention "work" in that slogan.
