To all those who flew back in the 1960s, I was hoping you might remember the interior decor/colors in the following planes:

- United's Boeing 720, DC-8, 737, 727, Caravelle
- Delta DC-8-61 and DC-9

I'm specifically curious about the interiors in the mid-60s to early 70s. I know what they looked like after that from personal experience! Also, don't bother to post photos from Airliners.net, I've already seen them!

Thanks!

The only interiors that I remember that stick out in my mind from that time were TWA's
I think it was suppose to be gold and beige, but it was almost greenish looking tweed / pasiley. Sort of looked like flocked wallpaper that was popular at the time. The only reason I remember it to this day is that it really tickled the old gag reflex and looked really dirty. Unlike the Braniff interiors that were so colorful.

The ones I remember best were Eastern's. Throughout most of the sixties, the seats were turquoise with white headrest covers. In late 1968 or early 1969, they were in alternating rows of dark blue and kelly green. Each seat had a fabric headrest cover that was the other color. In other words, blue seats had green headrest covers and green seats had blue headrest covers.
If you search for it, you can find my United DC-8 interior picture from 1971.
