Looks like the 737-800 would be used by both Eastern and a new Pan Am... Both have strong brand names that can be leveraged and are recognizable worldwide.

Key questions:

1. Where will they be based? JFK? MIA?
2. Where will they get experienced pilots willing to give up opportunities with the now-hiring legacies? I highly doubt pay-for-training will fly with the majors hiring every month.
3. How will they secure gates and slots at the most desirable cities?

See the vague article below:





Pan American Airways to revive the Pan Am brand with Boeing 737-800s

By Bruce Drum on April 17, 2014 | Leave a comment

Pan American Airways Global Holdings, Inc. (New York) is the parent holding company of six brands of the Pan American family.

The would-be paper airline wants to revive the Pan Am name and brand. If it does, it will be the fourth version using the venerable name.

On April 5 the company issued this statement:

Pan American Airways is pleased to announce that it has completed formal selection of aircraft for it's planned launch early this summer to include the Boeing 737-800 models, with upgrades to the NexGen later as service needs develop.

In late March of 2014, Pan American entered into discussions with an undisclosed lessor that is well positioned to support Pan Am's growth strategy within the southern tier markets, and have ratified formal agreements through an issued LOI early Friday, and will be supported with a signed Purchase Agreement once aircraft delivery is ready to proceed.

Senior executives close to these negotiations continue to monitor the formal delivery of these aircraft, as certain criterion need to be met in order to deliver the specified flying experience that the brand wishes to extend to its audience.

Pan American is committed to delivering a top flight level of service that was once enjoyed by many worldwide, and those expectations will be extended into the new 21st century business model, as we continue to proceed with our plans to launch early, to mid-summer of this year.

In other Pan American news, crew selections will begin early to mid-next week for both in-flight attendants, as well as needed Captains and First Officers, and will be formally addressed through the appropriate department heads from each section through upcoming published releases to be issued to the public. However, those that wish to apply formally online may do so by submitting their respective resumes via our online source through hr@paaglobal.com.

According to the company, Pan American strives to be the industry-leading provider of safe, clean, reliable and cost-efficient air service. Pan American Global aircraft will deploy under our network brands as well as our wholly owned subsidiaries of Blue Sky Airlines and P21 Air.

Here's the latest on Eastern Airlines 2.0:





The new Eastern picks the Boeing 737-800 as its first aircraft type

By Bruce Drum on April 16, 2014 | Leave a comment

Eastern Air Lines Group, Inc. (Miami), better known as the proposed ?new Eastern?, has apparently selected the Boeing 737-800 as its first aircraft type. The new version of Eastern had previously looked at the Airbus A319 and later the A320.

On their website, the group has added a rendering of a Boeing 737-800 with Winglets in Eastern colors (above) with this photo caption:

This is the current artists rendering of an Eastern Boeing 737-800 in the Eastern livery. This aircraft, the ?Spirit of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker? is expected to be delivered to Eastern in late Summer 2014.


As previously reported, in January 2014, the new Eastern filed an application with the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity.

When the first aircraft arrives, the new proposed airline will then go through the final Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 121 certification process leading to an Air Operators Certificate (AOC).

The new airline has proposed using Miami as its new hub.

I wish they would let these iconic brands rest in peace. It should be like a sports team that retires a jersey. Nobody else can play that number.

FAA has no new certificate filings under the EAL and PAA names. This is a hoax.

Not a hoax. This has been ongoing for a while. At least with EAL. Not sure about PAA.

I would imagine both these airlines will be Miami Air Sub Charter.

They'll be able to merge the two and rename it Carnival.

Isn't another People Express in the works too?

Yes, I think so. The pilots are coming from Vision Airlines...I think. :confused:

Can't tell the players without a program. And I don't have a program.

From a.net:

Yet more confusion around proposed People Express reincarnation.

Today they filed notice with the DOT that they seek to withdraw their application for air carrier certification and commercial authority for interestate transportation.

Company says it "has undergone significant changes in organization and financing, such that the information in the application currently on file is out of date. While the company does plan to prosecute an application for authority, it believes that it would be more efficient simply to start afresh with a new application at the appropriate time."

I'm not sure if these guys know if they are coming or going....

This from another source. I took it as coming from someone who works for Vision:

"Vision Airlines is currently accepting applications on climbto350.com. [that may have ended] We are planning on hiring about 18 pilots, half captain and half first officer, operating for the new Peoples Express airlines out of Virginia."

"The relationship with PE is we will be flying for them until they get their own aircraft and operating certificate."

Seems to be rather a lot of 737 pilots around. :D
