Until last week the company planned to begin operations between New York and Anchorage with the Boeing 777-200(ER) in May. Finally, this route was canceled.
Eastern Airlines currently has two Boeing 777s in its fleet, which did not operate regularly with the company. Due to the suspension of flights to Anchorage and the delay of Quito the company’s Boeing 777 will be, at least, four more months inoperative.
