“Eastern Air-Shuttle/Trump Shuttle"
“Eastern Air-Shuttle / Trump Shuttle"
Program March 19, 2018
This flight originated out of New York City, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Newark. The shuttle's slogan if you remember was “Imagine Life Without Us”. The specialty of this Eastern Air Shuttle was:
- Reservations not required ahead of time
- Passengers just showed up at the terminal
- Airline tickets bought on board
- Missed Flight, no problem Hourly Shuttles
- Location no problem, Shuttle out of each of those cities.
Listen to how and why this money making Shuttle that fulfilled the needs of travel for many business people, ended for Eastern. How on October 1988, the Eastern Air Shuttle's ground rights were ended and 17 aircraft were sold to Donald Trump and the beginning of the Trump Shuttle. Discover that the dream of traveling any time without reservations to these destinations that still exists and what carrier has the routes now.

We know that the Eastern Family had wonderful years working for a prestigious airline. Their children grew up in an airline family that shared the love for Eastern, so they too, learned to love Eastern. Some became Eastern employees when they grew up and knew many of their parents' friends...some were even Godparents to them. They lived it for many years before Eastern closed, and they are, what they call themselves, "Eastern Brats". We want you on our show! Once we know how many of our Guest "Eastern Brats" are joining us, Neal will write a partial script for the evening and list the names of the Guest "Brats" who sign up for the show in the order they will speak and send out a script.
Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on April 23, 2018 and join in with our "Eastern Brats" as they share their experiences as children of an Eastern Family. Listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to our website: www.EALRadioShow.com or
