I was going through some stuff at my parent's house and my mom had these items from her first airplane trip, which she took between PIT and DCA on August 2/6, 1968. Mom was 18 at the time and said she remembers it being a prop plane, but she said she could be wrong. I would think it would have been an L188. Does anyone know anything about these flights?

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 5): As a sidenote, with inflation, $17 and $13 in 1968 are equivalent to $114 and $87 today.
Which is still a bargain. US wants $1104 to fly that same route today, with a Y class ticket, with two weeks advanced booking! A lot of people want to tell us that flying was actually more expensive back then, adjusted for inflation. I guess not on this route.
