World War II provided many technological improvements in flight, and commercial airplanes became faster and more efficient. This led to the creation of the coach class, which let people travel around the country for around 100 dollars, one third of the price of tickets in the 1940s.

From 1950 to 1958, annual boarding more than doubled from 17.3 million to 38 million. Airports around the country needed to expand, and delays in luggage, take offs and even landings were commonplace.
so we take 17.3 million total passengers and then divide by the number of airports ? or something like that?
And i really believe that airports that were not opened in the 50's shouldn't be there as well as the correct names. But its not a bad thing, just if you are bored one day and have nothing else to code.
Also ehow makes it sound like ticket prices were much higher then the 49 dollars on basically every flight we see on here. Any one know of someone who can back this up so we can all make some money?
