Eastern Airlines (2D, Miami Int'l) is in the process of adding its first B777-200(ER) in the form of N771KW (msn 28530), an 18.3-year-old unit currently parked at Victorville airport.

The Floridian airline registered the ex-flyGlobal Charter (FGG, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) jet on May 29, 2020, but has yet to ferry it out of storage or deploy it into service. The aircraft will join Eastern Airlines' existing fleet of eight B767s consisting of one B767-200, three -200(ER)s, and four B767-300(ER)s.

Eastern Airlines had been planning network and fleet expansion before the COVID-19 crisis. Having previously operated as a charter specialist, the airline launched its first scheduled route - from New York JFK to Guayaquil - in early January 2020. Plans to add services to Georgetown Cheddi Jagan and San José Cabo were interrupted by the pandemic. The airline still operates charter flights besides the currently suspended scheduled routes.
