Northeast Airlines (Abbreviated as NEA) is an airline that appeared in the 1990 action thriller film Die Hard 2.

Description Edit

In the film, the wife of protagonist John McClane, Holly, takes a Northeast flight to Washington-Dulles International Airport, only for the flight to end up circling the airport after terrorists take over the air traffic control system and deactivates the runway lights. Eventually, the plane lands safely using the fire trail of a destroyed aircraft the terrorists were using as an attempt to escape.

Basis Edit

Northeast Airlines is most likely based off the real-life Northeast Airlines, an American airline that operated from 1931-1972. Their letter font in the logo also bears a similar resemblance to the movie Northeast Airlines. (See image below)
