Go read the DOT order. Its not a formal approval as parties already had approval since 2002.

The premise of the whole thread as presented by OPer wrong.
FAA did not revoke anything. Eastern surrendered its AOC as the airline is finished. Operated last flight in September.
Well covered in an existing thread:
My 2 cents. I don't know if you aware but airlines offer various cargo products - think of them as classes like First, Business, Economy, etc, that often will come with their own different transportation priorities. For example, think of a regular shipment via a consolidator as a basic economy clas...Jump to post
