Very telling Ad's from the 50's
« on: March 30, 2011, 05:06:47 PM »
So I looked around and found some very neat airline ads from the 1950's.  Most of these ad's have an interesting commonplace - they all seem to focus on the amount of flying time there is between destinations (not all but a majority of them).  Every airline was concerned with the flying time and less with pricing and equipment.  So the faster aircraft are in much more demand then the slower aircraft.

On price - check out the ad below:

Anyway - very interesting stuff.

This was a time when airlines could not compete on price.  Pan-Am sued Alaska Airlines for having too GOOD of food, giving them an unfair advantage for the price.
