This Is When Flying In Economy Was Actually F**king Awesome

The folks over at Scandinavian Airlines have just released this range of vintage airline photos that reveal how good service use to be up in the air.

Today with the proliferation of cheap flights and streamline service there's less and less emphasis on quality and experience. For the vast majority of people who fly these days, it's simply a means of getting from A to B no need for extra trimmings.


But during the 1950s and even into the 1980s, air travel was predominately reserved for the wealthy and those with large business expense accounts. If you could fly, you had money and if you had money, you got lobster seemed to be the mantra of the day.

Today we can all fly (which is a great thing), but very few of us are getting meals and service quite like this!
