The U.S. deregulated first, and legacy carriers adapted to fly leisure travelers, too. (It took a lot of bankruptcies, but it got done.) And prior to the U.S. deregulation there were some U.S. leisure airlines like - Transamerica Airlines, resp. Trans International Airlines (TIA) - Overseas Nationa...

BOAC flew also the Constellation (049 and 749), DC-7 (C) and Stratocruiser as Pan Am did. Though they did not fly the DC-4 and DC-6, but the Argonaut - basically a re-engined DC-4 with a different window and passenger door configuration similar to the DC-6, the Britannia (102 and 312).
