Remember when flying used to be romantic and glamorous?
Back in the ’60s and ’70s, the airline industry had its challenges, but it also offered a lot of perks that travelers pine for today.
Like a full meal, served on real china, even in coach.
Like food that was more home-cooking than pre-packaged snack.
Like wide, comfy seats with plenty of leg room.
It all made travelers feel like they were doing more than simply hurtling through the air from Point A to Point B in a metal tube. It made them feel pampered. Flying proved that they were privileged.
