The TWA L1649s were highly luxurious aircraft...I'm sure the seats were vastly superior to those you find on today's 777 and A330 aircraft working similiar flights...also the L1649 was much better looking!

However, what detracted from the added comfort was the extreme noise and vibration. While on the Starliner it wasn't nearly as bad as on earlier propliners I still imagine (although this is speculation because obviously I was born nearly 40 years after the heydey of these flights) that it was substantially less smooth and quiet as a flight on a jetliner. I imagine that stepping off of these L1649s at the end of a flight one would feel extremely fatigued and exhausted.
However...not nearly as exhausted as someone stepping off of the QANTAS "Double Sunrise" flight. 32 hours in an unpressurized demilitarized flying boat!!!
Somewhat like a form of torture really...probably worse even than flying AOM ORY

I've seen much worse. Please remember to use the suggest deletion
button if anything offends you. Though it's out of my league as far as I can tell it wasn't a rule violation anyway as it wasn't directed towards any user in particular...in the chat we would not take action if someone said that unless they did it repeatedly and in a manner that was disruptive and offensive to the other users.
