Some memories from days gone by:
Eating baked Alaska in first class on Braniff DC-8.
Boarding the aircraft from the ground, and hearing the sounds of airplanes.
Going into the cockpit in flight.
Baggage destination tags that were pre-printed for each city.
Your seat assignment was selected at the gate from a big seat map with numbered sticky labels on them.
Leather seats in coach on Braniff.
Braniff's colorful fleet, including the Calder 727 & DC-8.
And the one that sounds incredible in this day and age:
Being served steak, on china, with silverware, free wine on a one hour flight on an all coach airline. This happened on the original Frontier between Wichita and Denver.
Today we don't get their any quicker, but maybe a little cheaper and with a lot more hassle.
