As previously reported, Dynamic International Airways (Greensboro, NC) exited Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on March 8, 2018 after its reorganization plan was approved by the bankruptcy court. The carrier was requesting to do business as (dba) Eastern Air Lines (3rd). The Eastern name was retired by Swift Air with the folding of the second version of Eastern. The Eastern 737s were absorbed by Swift Air.
Eastern 2 operated its last revenue flight on September 14, 2017 with flight EA 3148 between Havana and Miami operated with N276EA. The Eastern 2 AOC was retired.
The third version of Eastern is operating its Boeing 767s under the Eastern name. The company wants to grow the 767 fleet to around 10 aircraft.
The FAA has approved the name change to Eastern Airlines.
This Eastern-titled Boeing 767 has been painted but the company has adopted the colors of parent Swift Air rather than the familiar color scheme of the previous Eastern 1 and Eastern 2.
