I'm Allegheny Airlines and we have cheap tickets but it will take 8 hours to get from Providence to Chicago because we will stop in Hartford, Pittsburgh and Toledo before we hit Chicago.

[quote]I'm the feeling of safety and security because Muslims haven't thought of hijacking planes yet.

...to use them as detonation devices.

When hijackings happened in the early days, they were to divert the plane to another destination, often one that they were not allowed to personally go to (Cuban refugees fleeing Castro, for instance).

Did you even have to show a photo ID at the airport in the 70s?

Nope. You just checked in (at the gate, not the counter), received your seat assignment, and up, up and away!

R166, I don't think so.

In the 70's if you saw a Muslim gentelman on your flight you wern`t suspicious , you didn`t watch his every move, you served him extremely attentively, flirted a little, giggled at his jokes,hung on his every word, showed a little thigh when bringing his meal, and treated him like a King .

Believe me, it paid off quite well.

Well, to be fair, Lisa Halaby was a bit more than a struggling stewardess - she was the Princeton-educated daughter of the CEO of Pan American Airways. She did not need to seek for a relationship that "paid off quite well."

Yes R171, but besides Malcolm Forbes, how many other Princeton alums went on to became world famous Queens?

She wasn't a stewardess for Pan Am or any other airline.

I'm the luggage lockers, a safe self-serve alternative to store your baggage while changing planes or visiting downtown Chicago on a layover. Nothing wrong can happen with this wonderful technology that allows you to keep something covered under lock and key for as long as you hold the key - all for 25 cents!

I'm PSA, and my planes were pink and orange with a smile painted under the cockpit. I was sort of the Match Game '74 of airlines.

And just like in Match Game '78, there was a lot of smoking at PSA '78
