What was it like to fly say 40-50 years ago? Do we have any members who can compare those days to present?
What were the aircraft like? Noise level, altitude, speeds, power etc...
What was the comfort level? Seat pitch? Seat width? IFE?
What was the service like? Meals, portions, drinks etc..
How were classes? Y, C, F I mean. Better or worse than today?
How about the prices compared to today?
How longer were the flights? Lets say NYC-LON flights..
How about cabin crew layovers? Were they longer than today? A TK pilot once told me they used to stay in ZRH for almost a week long time ago. Or did I misunderstand him?
The only info I have of those days are from the book "Coffee-Tea or Me?"
I am very curious as to know about past experiences... Any input will be highly appreciated
