30 History Photos You Have To See To Believe
Economy class flying in 1970.
When airline travel first started, it was geared toward the traveling businessman. After all, airfares were expensive and only business travelers could afford it. But as the 1970s started and airlines regained control over ticket pricing, air travel became more popular for families, as we see in this photograph from 1970. The introduction of the economy class meant more affordability for families, but economy class passengers didn’t give up too many luxuries. Check out that tuxedoed flight attendant service cocktails, coffee, and soda to the delight of the passengers. The seats look roomy, too, even with that center section of seats.
