but it cost extra (was it $10 a bag?) and it wasn't guaranteed to get on your plane. And if it traveled on a later flight you'd have to pick it up at the airport.
This made me get out a 1976 EAL timetable. They offered Night Coach back then.
The description of Night Coach doesn't mention the standby nature of a cargo flight, I wonder if Night Coach was the same as moonlight special?

1976 was before deregulation. This would not have been the same situation.
|Quoting Timz (Reply 15):|
And the standby checked baggage was indeed $10 a bag, but that apparently wasn't available when the operation first started.

I don't follow what you are saying. Night Coach was a forerunner to Moonlight Special. I betting getting route authority for night flights was easy.
