Gotta love the robot that scratches it's ass at the :48 second or so mark.

And those pneumatic passenger tubes...hell..we knew that was the future of getting connecting passengers around...

Looks just like a typically bad 70's sci-fi movie. Really funny! Thanks for sharing.

It's amazing how some things are so obviously way off the mark, yet others have almost come to pass. High-speed subway at DEN?  Wink

I miss ol' BI. My first trip on a 707 was with BI (to MSY) and you never knew what color the livery was going to be. Those were the days...

Gotta love the in flight shots of the B2707. Braniff orange livery (handy answer to future trivia question). That really would've been a sight to see.  Cool

Does anyone know who the announcer was that was used in this commercial? He did a LOT of Braniff commercials, including the infamous "End of the Plain Plane" commercials.
