WHEN THE SKIES WERE FRIENDLY

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY            2013

When Arlene, a newly graduated North Hollyood High School senior took his airplane flight in 1958, she was impressed with the special service that she experienced. There were free beverages, a gratis in-flight meal (see the menu below), and no cost luggage transportation. On request American Airlines provided a deck of playing cards, stationary and writing pens. Children were provided with special toy pilot wings. People smoked cigarettes in waiting lounges and even in the rear of the air plane. And, Arlene didn't have to get to the airport early to be searched.

Oh gawd, it's a lifetime ago or perhaps a parallel universe. Read the menu to my husband who nodded.
