Looking Back To The Start of The Jet Age

Glancing through some of my older posts, I came across one where I"d posted an old Pan Am commercial for the new jet flights. It's kind of a hoot. With several new airplanes, the "jet age" began in October of 1958 with Pan Am's new round the world schedules. Pan Am was a leader in many firsts but eventually came to an end in December of 1991.

Have a look at the commercial though. The earlier days of flying were amazing. It was a bit more formal, but I'd dress up for the meal they're serving. And what was with the "no vibrations?" When was the last time you made a house of cards on your tray table when flying? Even first class nowadays doesn't look as good as this did.
