Traveling by airplane is a lot different than it used to be. And we’re not just talking about the elaborate and cumbersome security restrictions that get added every time some wacko sticks a bomb in his BVDs. There used to be a lot of amenities, but they were gradually eliminated after President Jimmy Carter signed the Airline Deregulation Act in 1978 and cost-effectiveness suddenly became a corporate concern.
Here are 11 things that we never see on most commercial flights today that were common in days of yore.
- SLEEPING BERTHS
- CHAMPAGNE IN COACH
- TABLE-SIDE MEAT CARVING
- FLIGHT ATTENDANTS IN HOT PANTS
- FRESH CUT FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
- IN-FLIGHT FASHION SHOWS
- PERUVIAN ART
- A WINDOW AT THE END OF EACH ROW OF SEATS
- A SEAT ASSIGNMENT IN 22I
