Historical Film: Fly AA! (1933)

Fri Nov 30, 2012 1:29 am

This is a historical docu-tisement for AA produced in 1933. While it's meant to get to you to buy a ticket, it certainly provides an interesting historical insight as well. Though. after watching this film, people really should be gracious of the spacious over-head bin space that even a CRJ-200 gives you.

I've seen this plenty of times, but never noticed that at 1:30 the agency shown was a Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits office, known today as Carlson Wagonlit.

Just make sure on your flight over, as you get to the aircraft door, clutch your bouquet of roses to your chest, then turn to everyone watching you board and give them a little wave with a big smile! You'll fit right in.
