Eastern Airlines

I guess back in the day Air Travel was a grand event. This picture is from 1938, and famous chefs are shown loading cakes onto the airplane for the passengers. Not something I ever experienced in my decades of air travel. I started traveling in the mid-1980's, and by that time it had already become "cattle cars". The food was terrible, and no customer service. I can even remember when I first started traveling there were still "smoking" sections on the airplanes. Now that was fun . . . the smoke never left the smoking section and bothered the other passengers . . . NOT.
