The Spring, 1974 issue of Airliners International (the fourth, and last, issue of this fantastic magazine that died far too soon) has an article about a trip from JFK
on the following equipment:
-Freetown-Monrovia: BCal VC10
Monrovia Roberts Field-Monrovia Spriggs Payne: Liberian National DC-3
Monrovia-Abidjan-Accra: Ghana Airways F.28
Accra-Lagos-Entebbe-Nairobi: Ethiopian 707
Nairobi-Johannesburg: BOAC 747
The article's authors describe the interior of their Air India 747 as follows:
"National Airlines became Feminist Enemy Number One because of what it did outside its planes: the girls' names spashed on the sides of the planes, and the not-very-subtle-at-all 'Fly Me' advertisements circulated in the media. Inside, although decors may vary, National aircraft aren't any sexier than an Eastern or Branniff or any other airliner. The feminists haven't bothered with Air-India, probably because it has only one flight a day into the United States, but we would advise them to stay off that flight if they want to maintain normal blood pressure.
Air India, you see, has placed the sex appeal inside the plane. The walls of its 747s are covered with schematics of flute-playing dancing girls and smiling fat cows. On the middle walls, covering the movie screens, are murals depicting the Krishna legend, the life of a famous god who specialized in tricking and seducing women. Upstairs in the first class lounge of the 747 one wall is covered with paintings from the Elora Caves...you guessed it, half nude women".
This magazine comes up for auction a couple of times a year on Ebay, and it is well worth purchasing for the account of this trip alone!
