Before the goal of each flight was to fit as many people on board as possible, plane travel came with lots of little luxuries. Drinks served in real cups, tables, and for long flights, sleeping compartments. Back then flights were far too expensive for many people, but some of those luxuries trickled into the more affordable flights of later years.
It’s so wonderful to see women in dresses, heels, and pearls to travel. The men’s suits are top notch as well. Flights today certainly don’t look like this.
Those days are long gone, but sometimes it’s nice to see just how glamorous travel could be back in the days of full service flights and dining cars with silverware. If you enjoyed this then take a look at how travel has changed over the years right here.
