Members Stranded in Ushuaka, Argentina and Need Eastern Airlines Group, LLC To Fly into Buenos Aires, Plea: Please Help Us?

April 4, 2020

Dear Members,

As you can see in all the correspondence we have in Comments section, The EAL Radio Show Producer, Neal, Don and myself, along with our good friend, Mark Porter from PA Coastal has been having ongoing E-mails between us and Martina trying to rework the flight issue.

Unfortunately, the U.S. Embassy scheduled flight by the military canceled, even though Martina and her family were waiting at the Ushuaia airport to take them to the meet the EAL flight in Buenos Aires.

EAL's changed their scheduled 3/31/20 flight to get them April 3, but so sorry that Martina's family couldn't be there as they are still in Argentina waiting for the U.S. Embassy to get them a flight out.

All we can do is pray for them and that the military flight gets to Ushuaia  and then arrange another EAL flight from Buenos Aires to fly them home.

Thanks for all your prayers.

Episode 452


How Does It Affect Airlines"

The EAL Radio Show has our next topic coming up on April 6, 2020, Episode 452 on Deregulation...How Does It Affect Airlines" and another very interesting program for us to hear.

Airline deregulation was an enormous event and the Act of 1978 was the single most important event for airports since 1903. Air routes in the past were established by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), from the early airmail era when airlines relied on revenue from the U.S. mail to survive.

Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 effects are still being felt today, as low-cost carriers challenge the “legacy” airlines; American, Continental, Delta, Northwest, US Air, and United, that were in existence before deregulation. Remember, before deregulation of the airline industry the "CAB" controlled not only routes where airline flew but also the ticket prices they charged, with the goal of serving the public interest. What exactly is Deregulation?

Our team will provide more background of what Deregulation is illustrating its affect on the nature of competition in the industry. Join us on April 6, 2020 and hear more by using our call-in number 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as the EAL 452 flight departs the gate, or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

Episode 453
Eastern Airlines Music and History
"Novelty Music of the Past"

Our next Eastern Airlines Music and History program is scheduled for Monday, April 13, 2020, Episode 453, and we plan another program that will air at 7:00 P. M. EDT with the topic "Novelty Music of the Past".


Eastern Airlines Music and History program begins with a selection that Captain Neal tells us will be a lot of fun. Maybe he might pick one that was popular in the 70's that was heard on the Rick Dees (top DJ ) Weekly Top 40 program, and who recorded "Disco Duck," remember that! Perhaps the holiday special song that was heard of "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" or "Barbie Girl". So let's tune in to hear what he has in mind.

Novelty songs are not the standard music but created as some sort of humor.

Let's see what Captain Neal chooses and I'm  sure, as usual, it will be another good program. So join Neal Holland and his team of Hosts, as we travel back to the music of the past and listen to his musical choices.

Please use our call-in number, 213-816-1611, on Monday, April 13,, 2020 at 7:00 P.M. EDT, or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to our Blog Talk Website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie. See you at the Gate!
