Flying these days can be a stressful and frustrating experience. Annoying airport security, lack of legroom, uncomfortable seats and bad inflight food are just some of the complaints often made by passengers. But it wasn’t always this bad. In fact, during the 1960s and ’70s, the flying experience was actually quite leisurely.
Economy class was comfy and spacious, and looked far more luxurious than the drab seats we find today.
But business class was even better.
Unlike the closely arranged seats of today, business class in the 1970s resembled more of a lounge.
Will we ever get these back?
Both economy and business class looked like luxury compared to what we have today. Hopefully we didn’t put a permanent downer on your air travel experience!
