Was it really like this?

It would seem that SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) was the airline of choice to travel with for Savoir Faire in the late 1950’s early 1960’s.

Not only were you provided with a red carpet when walking across the tarmac to your waiting DC 8 jet, you also received a fabulous smile from a pretty Nordic type stewardess.

Travelling by night, it looks as if our prospective passengers are going out for a night on the town at a fashionable restaurant, instead of flying. Furs and cocktail dresses for the ladies and lounge suits for men are de rigueur as they board their Caravelle jet to be whisked away for a night of champagne and cocktails.

Was flying ever this glamourous?
