Angry Eastern Airline pilots, saying that their union leader had not been tough enough during their seven-month strike, fired him Friday and replaced him with one of the union's most militant members. The Eastern unit of the Air Line Pilots Assn. said it had "recalled" its chairman, Jack Bavis, in a vote by its 17-member master executive council, which met in Washington. He was replaced by Charles H. (Skip) Copeland, 55, who has headed ALPA's Eastern local in New York for many years.

Competing airlines are starting to reap gains from Northwest Airlines' troubles with a work slowdown that has delayed or canceled flights. The St. Paul, Minn.-based carrier has canceled hundreds of flights since mid-April, shortly after federal mediator Jack Bavis recessed contract talks between the company and the union representing mechanics and other ground workers.

Eastern's pilots union said today it has ousted its leader, a month after he suggested ending their strike and on the eve of new talks with management. Eastern pilots Chairman Jack Bavis was removed in a vote by 17 members of the union's executive council, according to a taped telephone message on the pilots' information line late Thursday. The union council members reflected recent rank-and-file sentiment against Bavis.

Defying the Bush Administration, the House on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly for legislation that would force President Bush to form an emergency board to investigate and report on the Eastern Airlines strike. The measure, which passed by a 252-167 margin after heated debate along partisan lines, must still be acted upon by the Senate, where its chances are uncertain. Then, the measure would have to be signed by Bush, who is being advised by Administration officials to veto it.

Peter V. Ueberroth formally abandoned his bid to acquire Eastern Airlines on Wednesday after he and Eastern's owners pronounced themselves hopelessly deadlocked over who should manage the company while the strikebound carrier is in bankruptcy. Although there were signs that a federal bankruptcy judge still hoped to salvage the deal, the failure apparently marked the end of an alliance between the former baseball commissioner and the unions that have virtually grounded Eastern. Ueberroth had proposed last week to buy Eastern for $464 million in a partnership with the unions.

New York real estate magnate Donald J. Trump agreed Wednesday to purchase Eastern Airlines' highly profitable Washington-New York-Boston air shuttle operation for $365 million cash. Trump, a flamboyant billionaire who also owns two casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., and might use the aircraft to fly gamblers to the gaming mecca on weekends, will rename the carrier "Trump Shuttle." He said he would make a "diamond" out of his new acquisition.

Baseball Commissioner Peter V. Ueberroth, who made millions in the travel business before becoming the czar of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, is negotiating to buy strikebound Eastern Airlines, with financial backing from entertainment mogul Kirk Kerkorian, several knowledgeable sources said Monday night. The deal, the sources said, is to be discussed at a board meeting of Texas Air Corp., Eastern's parent company, scheduled to be held Wednesday in Houston.

In a move that "outraged" its unions, Texas Air said Friday that it will sell its highly profitable Eastern Air Shuttle to a newly created subsidiary for $225 million. The unions loudly criticized the pending sale as an attempt to strip Eastern of its valuable assets and an effort to break the labor groups. Separately, Texas Air on Friday reported massive losses in both the fourth quarter of 1987 and for all of last year reflecting heavy losses from airline operations.

Former baseball commissioner Peter V. Ueberroth is expected to announce in New York today that he has reached an agreement to buy Eastern Airlines, according to sources close to the Southern California businessman. "Be alert bright and early tomorrow morning," a Ueberroth adviser told a reporter. J. Thomas Talbot, a Newport Beach real estate executive who is one of Ueberroth's partners in the proposed deal, would not confirm that an agreement had been completed.

Peter V. Ueberroth's effort to acquire Eastern Airlines faltered Tuesday and the atmosphere turned rancorous as lawyers for the strikebound carrier continued to object to the naming of a trustee to run the company while it remains in bankruptcy. There appeared at one point late Tuesday to be a possibility that a federal judge would name a trustee in order to keep the deal on track. But grim-faced bargainers left after a meeting with the judge and warned that the outlook had grown worse.
