Jet air travel in the sixties: curtained windows, nice reading lights, open luggage compartments and a lot of empty seats...

What are those little boxes next to the heads of the passengers? They look like speakers. Was this common in that time period?

Thank you for this vintage DC-8 photo. It has been very hard for me to find images of the early DC-8 cabins with those Palomar seats, curtains and corner reading lights.

Wow, I have been looking for a DC-8 cabin picture with the in-seat reading lights for years. This one of a KLM cabin makes it extra special. It is difficult to describe how much more comfortable travel was back then. And yes, airliners were rarely 100% full!

Ahh, God old times!

First thing I noticed with the picture is the relaxation and no high-alert security

Such a shame the world got so hostile as it is today

Great photo!
