Interchangeable tickets; If there was a cancellation or long delay with your flight, you could go to a competitor and exchange the ticket to fly on theirs2. Eastern Shuttle: Hourly $10 flights between Boston, New York, and Washington, DC. When the flight was full, they'd pull up another aircraft and keep boarding.3. Friendly Sky's4. Leg room between seats.

Quote from: flyboy1 on April 20, 2013, 11:53:04 PMDon't forget junior pilot wings, decks of cards, grooming kits for layovers and all the cool stuff with airline logos -- sorry, I've collected junior pilot wings since college and use them now as an AE lesson. I remember when flying on an airliner was something that you dressed up for and were treated royally.

I just can't believe that I remember when the 707s and DC-8s were new.
