[quote=@bobfromcanada]Ah, the good old days when Wardair flew. Inexpensive, lots of legroom, the ranch breakfasts, decent dinners, the Royal Doulton china and complimentary bar service. Sigh …
I also remember when a certain charter airline used the slogan “Our name says it all”. They don’t use that any more. The reason for that is also self evident. ::)[/quote]
Bob, that takes me back to the late 60s when I flew Iberian Airlines to Spain. Their motto was: “Only the plane gets more attention than you.” The flight attendants would change from suits to colourful dresses to get you into a party mood and would then serve drinks and a decent meal on china. Everyone also got a little gift as well.
It now seems that it’s a lot to ask to be comfortable while flying. What will be cut next…oh, I know…being charged to use the washroom, something RyanAir is considering.
