What it was like flying in the 60's

I found a cool webpage from a seasoned traveler.  So seasoned in fact that he used to fly a lot in the 1960's before this blogger was even born.  Things seemed way different back in the day.  A few samples...

  • Smoking was permitted anywhere on the airplane
  • No laptops, no cell phones (duh)
  •  The stewardesses were pretty young women
  • No security procedures of any consequence
  • There were observation decks at many airports
  • The vast majority of the passengers were businessmen
  • You could buy life insurance at the airport!!!
