What do some people mean when say "70's" interior?
How are the 70's interiors different from todays new interiors? I have only been inside new interiors. What airlines still keep those interiors? Thanks

My interpretation of out of date interiors is the loud bright psychadelic colors many airlines used in the 70's. That's how I have heard other passengers describe the interiors on some Delta aircraft. Most airlines today use dark blue and gray in their seats, in other words, the colors are more subdued. In the 70s, I know that Eastern, Delta, National, and United used seats of many different colors which were bright and gaudy. Then in the 80s earth tones became the style, where we saw a lot of brown, beige, tan, and rust. The 90s brought in the blues and grays. It seems that most airlines follow the current trend. Some Delta aircraft still have the same bright interiors that were popular in the 70s. I like them, myself.

I meant the same thing Bob described when I said 70's looking. Sort of loud, bright, Brady Bunch era. For the most part I like the interiors of the 90's although they could be a little brighter. United's interiors during the 80's weren't bad either.

On top of the bright colors, some of the carriers had "shag carpet" in various patterns or designs and various colors on the bulkheads!!!!

United and Eastern had this as did some others.
