RE: TWA Interiors From The 70s (Flower Power!)

The individual perception changes. When I was a child and flew the "new" interiors of Braniff and TWA in the mid/late 60's, I found they where modern and all other interiors were so old fashioned.

RE: AZ And AF Seat Maps?

What I can tell you is oldfashioned, but both airlines still have hardcopy timetables with seatmaps inside. You can find them at any <acronym title="Air France">AF</acronym> and <acronym title="Alitalia (Italy)">AZ</acronym> ticketoffice and check-in. According to my <acronym title="Alitalia (Italy)...

RE: How Many Crew Per Aircraft Type...

It is less a question of the type of aircraft than its cabin configuration and the ratio of one <acronym title="Safair (South Africa)">FA</acronym> per how many pax and class.
