Watching this is almost comical when you look at today. You mean you actually got SERVICE back in those days?

Jesus the seats are like armchairs! Another time anf for all its faults I'd take it over 2019 in a heartbeat. Nowadays passengers are treated like cattle and airlines would install outside toilets on planes if they could.

2 minutes 24, I often wonder how dogs feel about being put into a box not much bigger than itself for a 5,6,7 or 8+ hour journey. Scale up, it would be like putting you in a box 3-ft, by 3 ft, by 6 ft. Or, not much bigger than a casket. You have room to move around inside the box, and turn over, and stretch out but it would still be extremely claustrophobic. For example, you wouldn't have enough room to stretch your arms out above your head, as your heard would only be inches away from the end of the casket in the same way that your feet would only be inches from the end of the casket. Now imagine how you feel when someone closes the lid, especially if you are an animal that's not really sure why someone is put you in this box and how long you're going to remain like it. I wonder how many animals have panic attacks inside their box during the flight, because no one can hear them if they whimper or cry, or wonder what the hell is going on. I know how I would feel if I was put in a box not much bigger than me with the lid closed and put in a dark and depressing hold, with the rest of the luggage, for 8 hours not being able to get out the box. I would have more than a panic attack that's for sure. Poor little Skippy.

This is beautiful, back then planes were noisy as hell, not as pussy planes nowadays, and people were allowed to smoke on the plane, even snort a line of cocaine. No seriously this is beautiful, is amazing how aeronautic has been improved in the last 100 years. Look those seats, that service, god damn now we fly like pigs and eat shit from a box.

Remember when consumers/Americans demanded quality goods, and services, had class and knew what they wanted. I don't either. Pre 2001 everything was better in the air. Now airlines can leave you stranded anywhere in the world for no reason.

it seems according to the data that Americans never lost single dc-8 plane due to crash.. what is amazing. and most accidents were pilot errors, so the plane was build so good,,

I was drinking hot cocoa while watching this swell video. Isn’t that swell! I’m just so darn elated at feeling so swell! By the way that was a United airlines Boeing 720 turbo jet. We didn’t have the 707 but this was similar to the 707 but a shorter fuselage and shorter range. United airlines was the launch customer for this jet and many years later the 777. Isn’t that SWELL!

My sister and I (she was 10 and I was 8) flew across the country just a few years after this, with stewardess escort as we flew and changed planes. Yes, we got the junior badges. But we did not pass gum out. There are some similarities to our real life flight in 1967, HOWEVER, it was not as staid or dorky as portrayed in this “Isn’t Life Wonderful?” film.

I had a flight back in October traveling from Richmond to Tulsa with a stop in Dallas. On the flight to Dallas a lady and her kid sat in the two seats on my row. The kid kept kicking me the entire trip and even though the lady would tell the kid to stop he kept doing it. What that lady didn't know was that I just gotten done with military training and had not seen my family in over a year.

I miss Eastern Airlines. Flying in the 60's and 70's was such a pleasure. No TSA nazis to deal with. Customer service really meant something back then and the freaking size of the seats....god damn!

The DC8 was supposedly a better plane than the Boeing 707 because the latter was designed from an Air Force bomber, while the DC8 was designed as a passenger plane only.

Sigh... 2018, and I am 52 now. I think my first flight from memory was from Corpus Christi to Philadephia for my Grandmother's funeral. I was almost three in December 1968. I think we flew United Airlines. The uniform was all blue, winter-time style with a brimless matching hat. I remember the beautiful lady standing in front of me. I remember crawling on the floor of the aisle, and I was thus small enough that standing on hands and knees, I still could see straight ahead under the seats. As I crawled forward in the aisle, an elderly man on one side of the aisle and presumably his wife from the other side turned back to look at me with amused expresses on their faces. At some point, Mom picked me up. It seems we were about 10-15 seats back from the front bulkhead. Dad had the right window seat, Mom the aisle seat. Mom held me, pointing out the window with her right hand. I could see out, a sunny day, and it had snowed previously, with snow covering the ground and on the trees. We had to be at about 300-400 feet when I saw this. The plane banked side to side slightly just once as we came in for the landing. My memory is blocked out after looking out the window.

LennyFromNYC (4 months ago)
"It's a shame how far we have regressed . " You are 100% wrong. These films did not show the reality or the problems - this is just an ad for United and air travel. Now we have much safer, much more comfortable planes. A350 or Boeing 787 Dreamliner is 100 more comfortable and safe than the planes in the 60s - from the redundant power and safety systems, terrain avoidance, etc., to the TV screens with loads of entertainment. And if you adjust for inflation, the prices of the flights are much lower. You can fly from New York to London on Dreamliner for 400-500 dollars. Impossible to even imagine anything like that in the 60s.

What a great video from the golden age of air travel. People dressed up to fly and acted in a civil manner. The food looked delicious, was served with real utensils and was included in the cost of the ticket price. How grand it must have been. I wish I could have experienced this glorious age. Thanks for posting, really enjoyed the video.

I don't have a problem with loud engines. That's part of the joy of air travel. As for smoking, I don't have a problem with that either.
John Clarke (4 months ago)
I'm afraid they've romanticized the "golden age" of air travel in this movie. A ticket from NY to LA would cost the average person a months salary. The engines were very loud. They didn't have the weather forecasting we have now so passengers getting injured in extreme turbulence was common. Smoking was allowed everywhere on the plane so you ended up in a smoke filled cabin. No thanks.

Refuse Kid15 (5 months ago)
I remember my first flight on a commercial jetliner, I was 6 years old and we were flying from Portland, Oregon to Los Angeles on a beautifully painted Alaska Airlines 737-800. Was still a relatively new aircraft design at the time, I remember the takeoff was the weirdest thing I’d ever felt. I also remember, as soon as we lifted off, spreading my arms out in my seat like I was a plane and shouting in the cabin “we’re flying!!” I was so mesmerized by it at the time. Those were good days.
Ahhhh it was all so beautiful before the freedom of opinion and almost free fuel !

I'm diggin the seat width! Interesting.. Air travel has certainly gone backwards in MANY aspects... Was a road warrior during 9/11. It was miserable trying to fly then. Isn't much better now.

Seat width shown here are first class seats. In back where the unwashed sit, it was pretty cramped with six abreast seating.
