It was a great airline for we folks down south! Excellent service to LGA on a DC9-10 from VPS, DHN, etc. Flight 760 was the best. Great food, cocktails, clean, spiffy airplane. The crews were all happy and smiling and could not do enough for you. The airline definitely represented the character of the south. They also had some good routes up to Memphis and St. Louis.

I still remember the excitement of my first trip as an unaccompanied minor (10 years old), June 24, 1972 on SO 91. I travelled IAD - VPS - MOB. I remember the "smiley face" on the nose of the DC-9 as I walked toward the airstairs. I especially remember the beautiful flight attendants in black hot pants and silver go-go boots. The round trip, walk up, coach airfare was $136.00 - which I earned over one year by mowing yards and shoveling snowed in driveways!
